Hello Art.
Seems like nobody is answering you.
Hope this is not too late.
Might be that we don't have enough information for an answer.
Do you have the amp (Janus amp or Peterson) or also the entire amp with cabinet ?
In both cases the EP is attached to the amp through the pre-amp.
In case of a (older) Peterson the 4 pin cable provides the pre-amp of current.
With the newer Janus 1 amp a 5 pin cable does the thing.

I have a vintage vibe pre-amp for my old 1975 suitcase. It's great.
It sounds even better than the original Peterson pre-amp...with much less noise, hisss...
Well worth the investment if you ask me.

I will turn all my mountains into rhodes.
