viva Analog 360+ Bass Preamp Kit-Build

Here’s a great example of what my clone-in-a-pedal kit for the famous “Acoustic 360 Preamp” can look like once completed … this economical project allows you to build a circuit that will give you the vintage Bass sound heard with Zappa/Mothers, Jaco Pastorius, Chicago, John-Paul Jones/Zeppelin, Santana@Woodstock, Bob Marley and the Wailers, War, (etc.) … up until the early 70’s it was “the” mainstay rig for huge sounding Bass

Construction details and variations are discussed more in depth at my work forum, who’s membership is included with the purchase of a kit … special thanks to Dominic DeCosa for sending in this picture

    These do sound better than the original 360 it’s because it has all new parts. Just plug in to a power amp bass with single coils WOW. Modern tone use the Varitone. Old school. O the fellas a good too emails you back
