    Phil Jones Bass Buddy Preamp/DI
    3leaf Enabler

    A great DI box that takes away this awful harshness in the bass tone when going direct.
    Would like to check the Rupert Neve DI box.

    Maybe a Tecamp Black Jag 900.
    Maybe a second pair of 1x12 boutique cabs.

    I will definitely give the new Glockenklang Blue Rock a listen.
