    I like using my Sadowsky stomp box pre amp,
    and bypassing the front end of my 800RB. BUT!
    My Fodera pre, has much more output than the
    Sadowsky, and can easily run my 800 RB. The
    Sadowsky has much less output, so its not very
    loud. How can i get more output from the Sadowsky?
    Is there a way to raise the output gain, or put
    something in line to stengthen the signal?? Or what?

    I've never tried it on bass, but the Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster pedal is supposed to be a really clean boost. Maybe check that out.

    A Fulltone Fat Boost would work too, but it's pretty expensive. :meh:

    When you put it that way, it sounds stupid.
    I just wish the Sadowsky stomp box pre had
    enough gain to drive a power amp, like the
    Fodera or the mxr, or ....
