: The output of the Realist is much hotter than other peizos, I've never found the need to use a pre amp.

Damn , I find myself agreeing with Ed again !!!!
The Realist has a very high output - similar to the pickup I use
( Rich Barbera Pickup System ) and that makes a Fishman Acoustic Bass Blender "clip" it's utput is that high . Fishman suggest a small mod' to the Bass Blender which now works perfectly . They say that they only have this problem with people who use the Barbera pickup or the Realist . If you want to use anything try a Graphic EQ - the Boss GEB-7 works quite well , that way you can boos or cut frequencies prior to your amp .
Hope this has been of some help - Andy .
