In these past few years it has seemed a little weird to me that you've offered somewhat generic brands as preamp options instead of a uniquely voiced Dingwall preamp, especially considering that just about everything else on these basses is unique and far from generic. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Aguilar or Bartolini, it's just that nine out of ten luthiers offer and use these brands. Have you ever considered developing your own preamp, and if so, what obstacles did you face?

A couple of things have kept us from digging deeper. 1. We've spent a lot of time trying to make the basses sound as good as possible without any added EQ. I think we've succeeded to the point where we don't have to rely on EQ as much as maybe other builders do. If I'm wrong let me know. 2. The R&D is significant. As most of you are aware, we are backed up and behind schedule on pretty much everything. I'm really having to guard my time more carefully to try and catch up. Even simple things take a surprising amount of time if you want to do them well.
