Rob - thanks for the clarification.  I hadn't realized there wasn't a level control for the mids - had assumed a stacked pot.  So in the cavity, in addition to selecting the mid frequency, is there a level adjustment of any kind or does the toggle engage the mid-boost at a pre-determined level?

I haven't yet had the pleasure of trying out the Will Lee Preamp - was musing as to the possibility of having one installed on my 24/5 NYC fretless on another thread recently...

Am curious - Is the preamp "voiced" the same as the standard Sadowsky onboard preamp?  In other words, if the mid control is set flat, should the tone be essentially the same as standard Sadowsky EQ?

Thanks all for the replies.  Yes, doughboy, I was thinking in terms of tone for the most part. 

Oh, well... It'd be nice to have that extra tonal control onboard.  In the meantime I've started using a Radial BassBone, mounted on my pedalboard, for both stage and studio.  It has a midrange control - fixed at 470 hz - that is working well with my bass.

Hello all - Longtime Sadowsky player, first time posting on this forum.  I've done quite a bit of recording over the last couple of years with my NYC 24/5 fretless bass.  During this time I've been able to explore many different avenues as far as getting the bass into Pro Tools with a pretty decent range of popular DI's and compressors; each of these devices imparts some degree of unique tonal quality to the sound of the bass track, but those differences are nuanced and subtle - when all is said and done, the bass always sounds like the great sounding Sadowsky that it is.

In the final mix stage of recording I have invariably found that some gentle boosting in the frequency range around 400 to 500 hz with medium Q, (sometime higher depending on the tune), can really help bring out the more "woody" character of my bass and generally helps it to hold it's own in the mix.  I recently read that the new Will Lee models have an adjustable mid control, selectable at 500 and 800 and this really got my attention. 

I was wondering about the possibility of replacing my current onboard preamp with one of the newer versions with the midrange EQ. I know that the Will Lee models are single coil equipped, am wondering if this new preamp would even be compatible with the Sadowsky Soapbars on my 24/5? 

I thought to email Roger directly about this - and still might - but I thought it also might make for a good "first post" on the Sadowsky forum, might be nice to hear of others experiences specific to midrange EQing in the studio (and onstage for that matter).
