Interesting. I'll try to swap in an LT1351 for the LM4250 in my model, which I got from PassInWind. The plot below is using the LM4250 with many component values substituted for lower noise, using buffered pickups. I set it up so that with the treble and bass pots at 0.4 it's virtually flat, but you can see the roll-off of highs, which I assume is from the very low slew rate of this chip. So in theory with a faster chip (that also requires more current) we'll see the highs continue flat for longer. Good experiment.

I have to say that although I haven't finished building my experimental preamp I think I'm going to like that roll-off. What is there at 13K that I want to come out of my rig? String squeak? Maybe if I learn to slap better I'll want super bright. But then again my MB115 couldn't reproduce those highs anyway; I'd have to swap up to a cabinet with a tweeter.

I guess thats where player preference comes in. I play a lot of harmonics all the way up to the 2nd fret and they really ring out when I went to the LT chips. I also have a tweeter on my bass amp. A lot of bass players don't like tweeters and prefer that steep roll off in the highs.
