A fairly straightforward build of Yamaha's Nathan East parametric EQ for bass guitar. Haven't spent that much time tweaking and fiddling, but seems to enhance the harmonic content in a pleasing way: in a word, articulate. Quite dark for my taste with the LPF engaged, but imagine it might shine with an active bass as a final tone tweaker.
I see from the original manual that the input impedance is 470k, so not sure how it will behave with upright and piezo pickup. May or may not need a preamp for impedance optimisation. Will test on return from a couple of out of town gigs.
Safely housed. Name puns on Mr East's (as you see ) but also invokes the fairly obscure British psychedelic jazz/Middle East fusion unit of that name. (Come back John Steinbeck, all is forgiven).
And by all means I agree with @Mentaltossflycoon: moar toan-enhancing bass circuits please.
As always, thanks for reading and happy building y'all.
