The DJ-RETRO 01 is designed to fit directly into the Lakland Daryl Jones Signature bass without modification, including a PP3 battery. Its high quality circuit uses three stacked knobs and includes an active blend circuit plus a 3 band equaliser with bass, variable frequency mid, treble and bright function.
A very gentle built in contour gives immediate colour without detracting from the basic sound of any bass. The active blend circuit prevents the loss associated with many passive basses where, when both pickups are up full, the signal from one pickup feeds into the other and vice versa.
However, a switch is included to allow a passive equal mix of both pickups. A second switch - basic "get-you-out-of-trouble" passive mode is included in case the battery dies in crucial circumstances, but this mode allows lots of useful settings too.
LAKLAND SUPPLY OUR DJ PLATES TO ENSURE A GOOD MATCH WITH DJ BASSES.
No routing or physical modifictaions to the majority of Lakland DJ basses.
Note: We've found that variations in fit may sometimes require minor adjustment to the control caviity in order to make a little clearance for the mini toggle by the jack.
A STANDARD PP3 BATTERY FITS UNDER THE PLATE IN THE STANDARD CAVITY IN MOST CASES.
HARDWARE OPTIONS: Chrome Plate, Black/Chrome Knobs (Other knob finishes can be supplied by special request)
What they say!
* John, just finished installing and test driving the DJ-retro. Wow, what beautiful preamp. Love what does set at the detents, plus all the other sounds I haven't been able to use passive without adjusting the amp. Since i go DI to FOH, amp settings don't have a lot of effect on the FOH. Thanks for the help and the great design. Bill - USA
* I received the DJ Retro I ordered last week and wired it in last night. The sound is amazing and it was very easy to fit. I like the screw-in terminals for the pickups which is a lot easier than the posts on the earlier J-Retros. It also makes changing pickups a breeze if I want to try something else. Your preamp is a work of art! Many thanks again. Brian - UK
* Hi John received my DJ-Retro sat morning, fitted by lunchtime works a treat, thank you for the excellent service. Regards Trev - Jersey
