These things are on my radar (kinda on-off):
Le Fay Herr Schwarz 5
Pedulla Nuance 5-string
Mayones Hadrien Feraud Signatur 5
Phil Jones Bass Buddy Preamp/DI
Durham Sex Drive
A great DI box that takes away this awful harshness in the bass tone when going direct into the board.
Would like to check out the Rupert Neve DI box.
