    As the title suggests, which of the five Erickson Montessi preamps (P-1, Blue, Red, Silver, Gold) is best suited for bass? I am sure any of them could be used and would yield decent results, but I wonder which one shines the most...

    Best,

    I have the GOLD..... Its fat and transparent.. Peter might have another suggestion...
    I am going to see him at the Alleva Coppolo / A-Design show in LA April 5th so i will ask him... I know that is a long way off..
    I was chating with Steve Baily and he has a few of the Erickson Montessi pres.. Im not sure if he is set on just one for his bass though

    Actually, I just received a message from Peter. He recommends P-1 for its great DI as well as good synergy with the REDDI.

    Peter had recommended the gold one and the BAC compressor in his one-space 500-rack to me, but it's been a while...

    that is what i have following my EM500 Gold. the BAC500 is very smooth.. and transparent.... And has tons of gain make up if you want to run it all into a poweramp to use on a live gig...
