Ok, so hear's the deal. My Fender TPB-1 sounds TERRIBLE in the studio (D.I.) to me. It's pretty sterile, boxy, and bottomless sounding. No amount of it's EQ section helped (not a fan of the tone stack ). Live, the thing sounds great and is a good D.I. to the FOH. I'm playing it into an IP112 (soon to be IP/EX stack). So I'm thinking the best route is to get a real D.I. to use in the studio. After listening to basstasters, the REDDI is my favorite sound (besides the STT-1, but i can't justify getting that bad boy.). The TD-100 seems a tad bright sounding, but it's also not the same bass being use in the clip (34" scale Sadowsky Vs. 35" scale Valenti). I'm going for that thick, fat, weighty (tubey?) tone that i have live. I know i can only get so close to this without micing the cab, but that's just not an option with the type of people I'm working with. So, Should I go with the REDDI, or the TD-100? Think along with me then give me your opinion: REDDI: Pros: 1) kick@$$ tone 2)simple Cons: 1)price 2)Yet another piece of gear to carry and plug in 3)Can't be racked 4)needs a y cable or something to be used in conjunction with my amp set-up. TD-100 Pros: 1)price 2)can replace the TPB-1 completely 3)no special cabling needed 4)TLA-50 compressor can easily be added into rack next to it. 5)impedance control to shape tone slightly Cons: 1)not sure of tone 2)needs 60 buck attachment to be racked Have i missed anything? Opinions wanted big time!
