Bartolini preamps are among the best known onboard bass preamps.
Many major manufacturers as well as most smaller custom builders have Bartolini preamps as an option for their instruments,
and many use Bartolini preamps as their standard stock preamp for their basses.
The NTBT and the NTMB, come prewired on a harness with gain control trim potentiometer to control overall output. This means that the preamp module comes wired up to the potentiometers, battery connectors and the output jack. In most cases, the only connections that will need to be made are connecting the pickup wires to the pots and ground. Depending on layout, you may need to extend a couple of the wires to reach to the jack.
Bartolini Preamps come prewired from the factory.
The NTBT and NTMB are wired for 9 Volt operation, but an extra battery clip is included for 18 Volt operation.

Choosing a preamp:
1) Decide whether you want 2 (treble and bass) or 3 (treble, mid and bass) band electronics..
2) Count the number of knobs that you currently have on your bass.
3) Choose from the many configurations we have listed in either of the categories above.
The different configurations within each group (NTBT or NTMB) utilize the same preamp module..so the different choices are based on the control layout that you need.
