5.4AP NTMB-GFL (Fretless) Compact Preamp

The new Bartolini NTMB Systems have eliminated the second module and have only the single 1-3/4" x 1" x 1/2" module. There is also a weight saving on the new systems of 20 grams.

The NTMB+FL is designed to put more focus on the mid frequencies. As such, the bass control has less range than the NTMB+F ( +/-12dB @30Hz vs. +/-15dB @30Hz). Also the treble control has less range and is set at a lower frequency than the NTMB+F ( +/-15dB @6.5KHz vs. +/-18dB @10KHz).

Control Configuration

  • Volume (Active/Passive Push-Pull)
  • Blend
  • Treble
  • Mid
  • Bass
  • Mid Frequency Selector Switch

A Pre-Wired harness saves the time and aggravation of wiring your pre-amp and pots into your instrument. They feature our industry leading pre-amps and premium audio-quality potentiometers with smooth control and ready for years of rugged use.
