Hi all, I have an active Pedulla bass that I would like to put through a pedal pre-amp such as the Darkglass Vintage Deluxe or the new MXR m81 pre-amp. I know that off bass pre-amps are usually for passive basses to give them more "life" and better eq options. Is it redundant to use an active bass with the boost/cut features built in with a pedal pre-amp? Would I be going through to many gain stages and actually be hurting my tone? Thanx. Opinions?
