    I was wondering if there were any good outboard preamps out there for under $50? I know that's cheap, but I'm poor. (Don't have $200 for the aguiler or sadowski.) I just want something to boost the signal of my passive bass a little bit. I was wondering if anyone has used the little smokies amp to do that? I guess it makes a good fuzz box for guitar, so it's probably the same for bass, but let me know.

    How about $72?

    Blatant commercial plug:
    Check out the Power Pack.
    I use one with my passive Fender P and it's great.
    Feel free to be skeptical, because I also sell them.
    But I wouldn't sell them if they weren't.
