Hi everybody! I'd like some help and I know you can help me. I'm trying to get a "tube-ish" sound from my gear without spending a lot or money on a big, heavy all tube head (I know they sound better than any pedal though and I'm saving money to get one soon). I own the well-known "VT bass" and I purchased the Markbass compressore. The tube in the compressor helps a little. Thing is I just read about this preamp Art tube mp Studio. I have no idea if this "thing" can help me to improve my tone. I've read some things about it but nothing came in handy (some people claim it adss "warmth" and some others says it doesn't do a thing :| . What do you think? does it really help to improve bass tone? do you think it could sound great with a vt bass and a Markbass compressore? The people who own/use this preamp: How do you use it? and what do you think about it? Thanks in advance!
