Advanced Preamps for the Bass Guitar

The JNC - Jazz Hum and Noise Cancelling Preamp

The JNC is a completely new concept in bass guitar preamps. This new preamp series cancels the hum and noise from single coil pickups so you can have all the tone and touch response of real single coil pickups while cancelling the hum and noise in the preamp. Through advanced engineering, these preamps perform the magic of hum and noise cancellation without negative sonic side effects. Knob layouts are optimized for both Vol, Vol and Vol, Bal configurations in 2, 3 and 4 bands of active tone controls. For players which prefer the traditional controls of a passive electronics plate we also offer this preamp series in Vol, Vol and Vol, Bal configurations with a passive Tone knob. These 2 configurations have been designed to be as close as is possible to a passive plate with the benefit of noise cancellation. All the preamps in this series are easy to install (no soldering required) and at $149 to $169 including the Noise Sensor matched to your type of pickups - it's priced to be easy on your budget.

The Z-Mode Feature - expanding your pickups sound options

Sure the Audere bass preamp sounds great - but better than that, it has three fundamentally different voices with the Z-Mode Switch. With the flip of the switch you can change between the passive bass voice, a deep clear, note defining voice, or the bright, high voice that is so popular for slapping. The new Pro Z versions gives you even more control; at your option, you can reprogram the Z-Mode switch to mix it up with a different voice for each pickup.

The Pro JZ3

The Pro JZ3 are great jazz bass preamps and replace your existing control plate. The preamp gives your jazz bass that sensitive to the touch response which is so often missing from a passive jazz bass. Knob layouts are optimized for both Vol, Vol and Vol, Bal configurations in 2, 3 and 4 bands of tone controls. These preamps are very easy to install (no soldering required) and at $149 (Pro JZ3) it's priced to be easy on your budget. The new Pro versions allow you to optionally reconfigure the Z-Mode switch during installation; you can select which voice is applied to each pickup, giving you even more sonic response and control.
If you have a body side mounted jack we also offer a Pro JZ3D ($169) with a Tone in the 4th position or the Pro JZ6D ($179) with a rotary 6 way Z-Mode switch in the 4th position.
