- Volume Active/Passive Push/Pull
Scaling new heights in perfecting the tonal capabilities of magnetic pickups, the Delano Sonar bass preamp series is designed for just one purpose: Making a good tone even better.
As an integral part of any active bass guitar, an active EQ has to fulfill countless requirements regarding strength and clarity in tone, power consumption and installation. To meet this challenge perfectly, the time has come for a new onboard preamp: Sonar.
This smart powerhouse delivers the real thing: rocksteady bottom, cutting midrange and naturally brilliant high end. Whether adapting its tone to match the surrounding acoustics, enhancing versatility or increasing your musical expression, this preamp always feels like a natural extension, preserving all the benefits of passive operation: uncoloured, true and focused sound. Comparing the flat-set sound to bypassed full passive action you’ll detect no difference. Matchless. And with its perfectly matched band-pass filters and separated amplifier stages, adjustments stay predictable at any time without overpowering tone.
The Delano Sonar onboard preamp is housed in a sealed slim-box, which provides easy, space-saving installation and secure insulation to other electrical components. Its minimal power consumption lets you forget where your battery-box is - make a guess?
Please Note: SONAR preamps come with prewired tone pots. Volume Push/Pull & Blend Pot are enclosed.

Delano Sonar 3 is Amazing

Delano Sonar 3 gives dead bass new life!
By James Murphy from on 2/19/2017
I can't wait to install the Delano JMVC or HE pickups, and the Sonar 2 in my fretless Washburn T 24! I mean no offense to Washburn as I love the build of that bass, but the electronics are junk in that bass and the bridge pick up is unusable. That being said I can still coax a very beautiful tone out of the neck pickup, and my Furman PQ4. I can only imagine how great that bass can sound with quality electronics like this in it. Thank you Best Bass gear for the great price, free shipping and most of all ULTRA FAST SHIPPING! I ordered on Tuesday evening, it was here Friday by noon, and in the bass the next day! From East Coast to West Coast zip zap just like that.
Crystal clear EQ

It's absolutely noise free and works very smooth and clear. It doesn't have a gain control which might be really helpful while using it with low output pickups. A good thing is the size, it's tiny and easy to install to small electronics compartments.
Good choice of frequencies for adjusting. Made in a musical way.
Tried with Warwick Streamer LX.
