    Bass Player had a very favorable review of the Ampeg SVT-DI, but I don't know if that means anything

    anyone tried one?

    no havn't tried it yet. but when i first saw it, i wondered if you could still use it with a tube amp, and how that would sound? looks good.

    Same here. Could it be used as a preamp for my WT-800? :smug:

    probably not... considering it's only a tube?

    No, your WT-800 already has a preamp built in. The SVT-DI, is just that a DI. Meaning that it will be used to send a direct signal into the mixing board for the Front of House mix, or to record with.
