    I have an amp that is super loud but I was not able to dial in my sound using the amp's onboard preamp. So I did some research and on a whim purchased the Startlifter Bass Pre/DI. I run it into the effects return of the amp now.

    What I like: Tones galore with minimal knob twiddling. The preamp adds just a little bit of musical distortion when you want it. Layout is super simple. Connectivity works for me. I have my sounds now.

    What I don't like: It is surprisingly heavy for its size and a bit large. It requires a specialized AC adapter with 12-15 volts.

    Even with the couple of dislikes I can live with it. I would gladly carry this somewhat over sized and heavy pedal with a weird AC adapter to achieve the sound I'm getting out of it. Its a trade off but tone is king in my book.

Preamp Details

  1. Price:

    Features:
    Sweepable mids. Pre / post DI, Countour switch for modern, vintage and none.
    The StarLifter offers top notch sound quality with a simple accessible feature set with clear and easy to use controls. It provides a killer clean DI signal that can either bypass the EQ or take advantage of the powerful tone shaping qualities of the carefully designed contour switch and the 3 band eq which features a sweepable midrange control. The line out provides plenty of gain to make any amp or powered cabinet sweat. A tuner out, mute switch, and switchable input impedance add real work flexibility. Get on board the StarLifter and take your tone to the stratosphere.
