Recently I was filling in for a church. I was told not to bring an amp, that I would run a DI and use IEMs. Well, long story short, I ran straight into a countryman box from my '62 reissue fender jazz and was completely unhappy with my tone. I didn't have my usual preamp with me (an aguilar db924), but randomly I had a pocket pod. I would say that I was able to dial in a usable tone, but it really brought it to my attention how usable something like that designed for bass would be. Preferably it would be in a more rugged enclosure than the pocket pod, have an DI out. A footswitch engage would be awesome too. Basically, what I'm thinking here is a sansamp BDDI killer.
