Combo to pair with piezo only electric bass

Recommended Posts

The title should give an idea but I'm finally looking for a new combo. In the past 20 or so years I've had Trace Elliot BLX150, Mesa Walkabout Scout and PJ Suitcase and 4b extension. Currently own nothing.

After a recent bass purchase (piezo only Bolin NS5) which has now become my sole bass I need to consider the input impedance. 

No preferences but I like the 2*10 or 1*12 form factor. 

Any ideas? Would also consider preamp/buffer like Sunday Driver which seems to have good reviews to solve part of the impedance problem.

What impedance does it need?  It has an onboard pre-amp, yes?

I don't know if it helps, but I gig my Ibanez SRH500 (which is also piezo-only) into a Boss LS-2 line selector which is 1MΩ input impedance, then into an RCF 1x12 powered speaker. Sounded great to me.

I am 98% certain your Bolin has an onboard preamp so no specialist inputs needed. Open up the control cavity plate on the back and there should be a big circuit board with Fishman on it in there. There is in mine. Also if there is a battery slot it will be preamped.

Congrats, they are lovely basses.
