No expierience with an Audere. I have a East J-Retro in another bass and planning on a ACG filter based pre in an up and coming 5 string.jcon said:Looks like a fun little project. Have you had any prior experience with the Audere preamp? My brother's been thinking about getting one for his Squier Vintage Modified J bass. Most of the reviews I've read online are quite positive, but it's difficult to tell how much of an improvement it actually is based on the sound samples I've heard.
