For everyone looking for that old school pre-Ernie Ball® Music Man@reg; tone, Nordstrand Pickups has the preamp for you.

The 2B-MM preamp is a faithful reproduction of the original 2-band Music Man ® preamp.

Like the original Music Man preamp, the bass control is boost only, and while the treble control is boost and cut, it does not have a center detent. The controls are very interactive, and it nails the vintage Music Man tone.

Hand-built in Nordstand"

Way over priced
By Pete Ryan
Ok, It does make my bass sound better, but at this cost, this product gets a hugh ding in the value catagory
Now that I see what this is, I could have etched my own circuit board and purchased for much less money.

Awsome preamp
By Angel Marrero
Awsome preamp. It made my Sterling Sub Ray 4 string sound like a Classic Stingray. The bass knob has a nice boost at 40 hz and the treble at 10 khz with boost and cut. Great price and quality that can't be beat. Thanks Best Bass Gear and Nordstrand.

Nordstrand:preamp 2B-mm
By Kenneth Jennetti
I got this preamp to put in a Frankenstein Chinese Bass I was putting together for a backup to my 1979 MM Sting-Ray. I could not believe how good this preamp sounded. I have a Mighty Mite pickup in it and I actually like the sound better than the Music Man. I would recommend this preamp to anyone who is looking for that pre Ernie sound.
