Lately I have been going DI from my Zoom B3 into our board without out an amp. I started thinking (uh oh) why not get a new tube head with a balanced DI and send that to the board? If I did that without plugging into a cab would it blow the transformers? Is this even worth thinking about? I was looking at the Jule Amps Monique but for that price I might as well get an amp that I can play through a nice cab as well. http://www.juleamps.com/bass/monique.html I may be just looking for an excuse to buy a new Ampeg V4B. Any suggestions?
