Adrian, can I please ask in what way(s) do you prefer the sound of the L.R. Baggs Mixpro over the Solstice? You may recall I've tried running my Rev SOLO pickup into a Gigpro. But to my ears it scooped the mids (I think). The resulting tone was too thick for my taste (which is wierd 'cuz I like my tone nice and warm and velvety). It just seemed to lack presence and definition in the mids to my ears, with my bass & gear, et al. I remember thinking "This Gigpro would be a great preamp for warming up a jingly jangly acoustic guitar sound, but not for my DB." I know however that you and flatback think highly of the Gigpro, and I definitely respect your opinions and expertise. Perhaps it works great with your Vektors and not so great with my Rev SOLO. I dunno.
