Click on the style that fits your bass


At Audere we build Bass Preamps with High Quality components and we actually construct them in the USA at a price point you can afford.


Our Preamp Systems are known for:

  • The best String Touch Response, giving you the bass response you always wanted to make your playing more fun and productive.
  • Flexible Tone Shaping options at your finger tips to make it easier to find your sound.
  • The Natural Organic sound of the bass - we are not making up a tone, instead we bring out what was hiding in your bass.
  • Simple to install preamps - most of our preamps are installed by players as opposed to bass techs.
  • Saving basses from the back of the closet or worse - have a bass that is not exactly inspiring? - Audere Preamps often fix these problem instruments.
  • Repeat Customers - players like what we build and we get a large amount of repeat business.
  • Advanced Features are offered on many of our preamp models, like LED Battery Meters or our Z-Mode System.
  • Low Price - we have vertically integrated the production to get the quality we demand while keeping the price low.


On our new website we are offering Free Shipping in the US and have greatly simplified the purchasing checkout process with PayPal Buy It Now buttons.

We offer lots of different configurations - we commonly make preamps in 300+ Configurations but purchasing the right trade-off for your bass is easy.

On the product pages - there are configuration selections to quickly guide you to the correct preamp.
