I know the REDDI is really a DI and not a preamp, but I also know that some folks use it as a preamp. In my never ending quest for incredible tone without hauling a mountain of gear around I am wondering what running my bass into a REDDI and then running that into my GK MB212 would give me. Could I reasonably expect that set-up to give me (in terms of tone) what I would get from a tube amp? I just can't carry around a tube head any more. The MB212 is 37 pounds and sounds fabulous. I just want MORE I figure if I could put something in front of that amp to give it rich clean tube tone I would pretty much be in heaven. Note that I am not looking for overdrive or distortion...that's not my thing at all...I want fat clean punchy tone.
