  6. ...Yeah I second that it's a great distortion preamp, The only problem is that those require a little tweaking before it's good for a bass' headroom.

    I've actually have been thinking of building my own distortion preamp for bass. I have this Idea for a dummy relay that preserves the lows. Sort of hard to explain, but it sounds fun.
