Details

The U-RETRO 5 KNOB DELUXE with two stacked knobs and three single, allows a full Passive mode, with Volume, Blend plus Passive Tone. When set to Active, addional controls and functions include a 3 band equaliser with bass, variable frequency mid, treble and bright function. The Passive Tone operates in both Active and Passive. A very gentle built in pre-shape contour gives immediate colour without detracting from the basic sound of any bass. The pot threads are 10mm long, designed to allow rear cavity mounting in the bass body.

The passive tone pot has a push/pull function which switches between active and passive paths:

PASSIVE (Pull Tone Knob)  Signals from the pickups pass through the passive blend, passive tone and then on through the passive volume control section, which feeds the jack.

ACTIVE (Push Tone Knob)  Signals from the pickups pass through the passive blend, passive tone, into the preamp input stage. Then through the equaliser and volume section within the active circuitry, and on through a low impedance output stage to the jack.

 The pots have 10.0mm threaded bushes designed for rear cavity mounting in the bass. Flat wire connections to the pots and toggle switches allow for flexible layout.
 
The preamp comes fully wired including battery clip and Switchcraft jack. For ease of installation, pickups are connected via screw terminals.  A ground wire will need to be connected to grounding points such as the bridge and any internal screening.
 
Out of the box, just connect the pickups using the screw terminals. snap on a battery, and you'll get sound.

HARDWARE OPTIONS: Chrome, Black or Gold. (Can be mixed by special request)

What they say!

*  John, this preamp is amazing!!! (u-retro 5knob deluxe) had to do a little routing and drilling, but fits, looks and sounds amazing! love that i have 2 basses in one, and oh man the tones! will send pics soon....thanks for building the best products ever!  Joe - USA p.s. the guys at "best bass gear" were a pleasure to deal with.. shipped in 3 days. 10 stars for John East and associates!

*  Hi John, got my bass with your Retro 5 Knob Deluxe unit back from my luthier yesterday, it works great and the sound flexibility is immense! Thanks for the excellent product and keep up the great work!  Stefano - Italy

*  I played it quite a bit yesterday John and I'm really really loving this preamp - it's a big improvement on the pre I had in my Shuker before - it has all the sounds as before and then some. I went with the U Retro because I wanted more versatility and I've got exactly what I wanted. Sorry if I had you worried ref the blend issue, but having had two of your preamps before, I knew something wasn't right and I'm really relieved it was a simple fix. Thanks for a great product John, I'm really pleased with the results.  Alan - UK
