| | On-Board pre-amp with D.I. output function
G'day Talk Bass
Do any of you esteemed bass gurus know of an onboard pre-amp which you would recommend, that has not only a tone feature, but also a built in D.I. output function.
I play an Upright Javelin - Spike Bass and a Fender Jazz. My backline is usually quite a long way behind me, when I perform, hence I use a ten metre Van Damme unbalanced lead.
I have been troubled by noise from lighting dimmers and god knows what, spoiling the light and shade dynamics when I am quietly playing during certain pieces.
The Instruments are screened to the teeth and perform perfectly well in the studio.
Changing leads has no effect and using a noise gate / expander at the amplifier end is no good, due to noise bursts opening the threshold too.
Can anyone recommend anything?
I'm considering ear plugs.
