Only in case of using my Fender RBV passive bass, I love how the tone smooths and gets more clanky with my Sadowsky outboard preamp. It serves for getting the bass from passive to a sadowsky active tone. Moreover, I want to use for recording my sansamp vt bass dlx for ampeg svt emulation and getting a more overdriven tone with it. Do I need the boss ls2 or Xotic xblender for this??? This thread advices to use ls2 Outboard Sadowsky Pre + VT Pedal: pointless?
