I'm getting rid of my BDDI. I want to add tube warmth to my LMII. I bought the Xotic BB Bass Preamp to replace the BDDI but want a DI also. I've debated on the other preamps around such as Tonebone, Tone Hammer, Tri Logic, VT Bass and DHA. I think I've finally come down to 2 of them. VT Bass with DI by D Putnam or VT Deluxe or go with the DHA VT1-EQ which has a tube in it. Now I do know that tubes break down but will the VT give me the tube warmth that I want?
