This is a quick demo video of the MTD Saratoga 5 loaded with Nordstrand Big Blade pickups. The preamp is the Nordstrand 3b Preamp. For the first half of the video I have the preamp/on-engaged with the treble cut about 10%. For the second half of the video, the preamp is bypassed/off. For both examples I have both pickups on.
I used the A-Designs Audio KGB-II DI/Preamp straight into Logic audio and DR Strings Lo Riders on the bass.
