The custom prewired units below include wiring all of the following for whatever configuration you have chosen:
  • Potentiometers
  • Switches
  • Battery connectors
  • Output Jack

The Output Jack is a standard switchcraft panel jack. If you require a long threaded barrel jack you will need to make the connections to your long threaded barrel jack as your bass isn't on our bench!

Switches are standard black flat mini-toggle. Black round bat, Chrome Flat, & Gold Flat are available during configuring your preamp.

Since your bass isn't on our bench there are a couple connections you will have to make including wiring the pickups to the preamp, grounding the wire from the bridge to the output jack, and possibly the jack if it is not the common style sterero panel jack that is included.


Prewiring is done every couple of days. Typical wait is just 4-5 days before leaving our shop.


Shipping Note on Prewired Units:

Prewired units are created based on your individual order.

This means that our technicians are custom wiring your order within days of completing your order with Best Bass Gear.

If you choose expedited shipping options that does not expedite the time taken to custom wire your particular item.

    Aguilar OBP-3

    The Aguilar OBP3 was built from the ground up to be the ultimate source of full-bodied tone, transparency, and versatility for your bass.

    Three bands of boost/cut and a selectable midrange frequency provides flexibility to dial in just the right tone. The treble control delivers up to 16dB of boost/cut at 6.5Hz and captures the dynamic of a "Passive Tone Control" when rolled off. The powerful midrange control offers user selectable frequencies of 400 or 800Hz, each with a full 16dB boost/cut capability. The midrange retains constant bandwidth in any setting so there is no "muddy" frequency overlap. The bass control features a boost/cut of up to 18dB at 40Hz, adding Aguilar's signature thickness to any instrument.

    The Aguilar OBP-3's small size makes it an easy retrofit in almost any bass. Combining high headroom and low noise, the OBP-3 is unmatched in providing tonal flexibility while retaining the true character of any bass!

    Pickup Compatibility:

    The preamp can be used with active or passive pickups.

    On the configuration page there is an option for pickup impedance.

    If you have passive pickups like Bartolini ®, Nordstrand ®, Aguilar ®, Seymour Duncan ®, and others then choose "For Passive Pickups"
