    I'm curious about DI boxes as pre amps?

    I've heard of

    SansAmp bass driver
    EBS micro bass II
    MXR

    Building di boxes that function quite well as pre amps?

    Just plug it right into your power amp?

    Are there other bands and models similar to these?

    i would love to have my pre on my pedal board instead of mounted in my rack...

    And could some of you folks provide some input on what is available so I can make the smartest purchase for my needs?

    I have a thread asking about a new Hartke preamp pedal. Seems like it shoulld do the job, and it appeals to my cheap side, street price should be $100 new. Now has anybody heard or used one?
