The Mojotone Music Man® Clone 2 band EQ bass preamp is a perfect replica of the original 2 band pre-Ernie Ball circuit with the original 4250 chip. We even had the potentiometers custom made to have the exact same taper and values as the originals, including the reverse audio 1M pot. Absolutely NO corners were cut which makes ours the truest clone on the market today. This is a direct replacement for original Ernie Ball and reissue basses with 3 control knobs. Volume, treble, and bass.
Overlord My 1979 MM Stingray sounds phenomenal after installing this preamp. Wow. Previously I had to duplicate and overdrive the duplicate to get the bass to punch through the mix (recording trick). Now it just punches through. I think my original preamp took a long slow dive into non-function, because the difference between pre and post is BIG.

Great Sound Replaced the stock Sterling SUB preamp with the Mojotone. Sounds great with very useable EQ sweep. I do miss the mid point notch on the treble & bass pots though--maybe this how the pre-EBMM ones are. Also, the pots are long threaded so need a second set of nuts & star washers to adjust the height, which don't come with the preamp.

null This preamp sounds amazing. It's everything I expect tonally from a two band MM preamp with far better specs than all the modern iterations. I put it in my early 2000s MM SUB and was floored.

Chief Cook & Bottle Washer This is a fantastic, high quality preamp and very true to the original MM design. I play a MM Stingray 5 Classic and recently picked up a MM USA SUB5 that had been modded with an EMG preamp and pickup. It sounded nothing like the classic with this setup. I installed a Seymour Duncan MM5 Alnico pickup and the Mojotone 2-band (3 knob) preamp and wow what a wonderful difference. It now sounds and responds 99% like the classic. Great job MojoTone you nailed it!

Too easy This is a great preamp, ready to drop in, and the sound is true to the original.
It's great to have my old Stingray sounding as it should, and it was so easy to install . . . Also, the guys at Mojotone are extremely helpful, all my questions were answered thoughtfully and promptly. . . Very Happy with this.. .

null Recently received the "MUSIC MAN® CLONE" 2-BAND BASS PREAMP (3 KNOB VERSION) had a question regarding installation, placed a phone call to tech support at 4 pm their time ( I am in Calif.) they requested sending an email which I did,next morning at 6am my time I had the answer. Installation was easy and the pre-amp sounds great, fits perfect. anyone who owns a music man bass knows that installation space is limited so adding other pre-amps is a little dicey if not impossible.......don't guess if others will fit this is the real deal.
