hey everyone on Talk Bass forum. I just saw a Bass Pod the other day and was very imppressed. this thing might save me money and backaches which will come in the future when I buy a stack and get rid of my combo amp. but what I want to know is will the Bass Pod fill the place of a Preamp if I decide one day that I want a rackmount system? is it good enough pluged into a power amp? and can someone who actually played all these great amps featured on the pod tell me how close the POD is to the real thing? thanks in advance.
