Headway EDM-1 DI Acoustic Equalizer/Preamp MINI, $219.00

This is a great little preamp!  The new Headway EDM-1 works just as well as the old (bigger) EDB-1 preamps, but as an improved instrument selector and more user friendly 3-Band EQ.  It's nice and compact (about the size of a Blackberry phone!) and comes with a nice belt clip or music stand receptor.  For the quality of sound and performance of this bass preamp, there is no other close to it in its price range.  Only needs a simply 9-Volt battery. $219.

K&K Duo Channel Bass Preamp

This is a smaller preamp by K&K Sound that is usually used to combine pickups for those using one then switching to a 2nd or blending both pickups at the same time.  Of course each channel has a separate volume control.  The preamp is usually mounted to (in front of or in back) of the bass' tailpiece.  The dimensions:  4 3/8" x 3 3/8" x 1/2"

It is compatible with both a Peizo style pickup and/or magnetic.  It has strong bass, midrange and treble filters and offers internal gain adjustments which set the pre-amplification factor from 1 to 10 (per channel.) This means you can boost the signal input to 10-fold amount.  It has two volume control knobs.  You can also adjust the trim pots (small potentiometers) with supplied precision screw driver.
