Hi, if you use an LF353 I don't see a problem. It has a Jug Fet input, so very high impedance, most preamps are 50K and this one is several Meg Ohms.
Take your 10K to ground and 470K from pin 3 to ground and then feed your signal in through a 100n Cap and a 10K resistor in series.
I think you will find that will do more than you hoped for.

Search for a bass pream specific schematic.
The one in the datasheet is fine ... for a Hi Fi preamp, with +/-15V rails, driven from a low impedance, etc.
You need high input impedance to properly load your pickups (the 470K suggested above instead of 10 K is fine) and running out of a 9V battery is more practical in that situation.

Here is a link to a nice bass preamp built around the 3 band Baxandall EQ. It uses JFETs but it will get you started. Link:
