Hi, is it possible to bypass the EQ curve on the RTS II preamp? Is it possible to bypass the preamp entirely?

The Ribbon Transducer has the lowest output of any system that we've ever made. So bypassing the onboard preamp would make the pickup entirely unusable, due to it's extremely high impedance and low output level. Even adding a foot of length between the pickup and the preamp would drastically alter the sound of the pickup, in a negative way.

Bypassing the EQ is not impossible, but since LR Baggs cannot provide schematics for any products, it would be very difficult to do.
