For EMG passive pickups, the BTC System HZ features a pre-wired balance control (blend) and master volume with the bass and treble on a concentric pot. BTC Controls and Systems are the most widely used bass EQ Systems in the world. Approximately 12db of cut and boost are available for bass and treble and all controls are center detented to assure quick return to normal tone settings. A dual-dip switch is mounted to the PC Board that lets you program the high end frequency response four different ways so you can choose the sound that's right for you. These systems use the latest in surface mount technology, are extremely quiet, and require very little current from a 9 Volt battery.

Based on price alone you'd have to at least consider this preamp...I own many preamps including my old standby pensa-shur from Rudy's NYC, but none onboard. Enter the EMG BTC HZ
I don't prefer onboard because I don't like messing with sound men trying to do their job...if it's there I may be tempted to fiddle ! But...sometimes there's no sound man and I never know what I'm going to play through. Enough about me.
Used with fender original 60's pups, I found the LOWS to be in just the right spot...low enough to catch my E string, but stops on the way up before the dreaded upper low frequencies start to muck things up. Even full up it's still fat and clear IMO.
The HIGH frequency is adjustable, very important depending on the "heat" of the pickup you choose.
I didn't find this preamp to be significantly noisier if at all than higher priced counterparts, AND with controls flat I found the tone surprisingly unaffected, with possibly a smidge of compression. 2 thumbs up...GET 1 !

Transformed the sound of my bass!

Mike M /Reviewed 1/22/2014

I have a Dean 4 string bass with EMG-HZs. I have always been happy with the playability and action of the bass but never real excited about the tone. After installing the BTC HZ system, the tone is awesome! I couldn't be happier. Took me about 2 hours to install. Only thing missing was a longer 1/4" TRS post, which I do not consider a complaint but a piece of advice for the next guy. Thanks EMG, I no longer want a new bass - I have one now!
