hey, I got a crappy 60 watter amp, fender BXR line. somehow (god only knows) my 5 string bass sounds ok through it and it handels the low B nicely through it's 12" speaker cone made out of toilet paper. now, I can upgrade to a combo or head+cab sytem which puts much more juice, or I can get me a Bass Pod (BOD?) to squeeze the most of my lame amp of which my sound somehow cuts through when I play with a guitarist. so volume wise I'm ok but I want more tone so is the BOD good enought to solve this problem or is it just a few EQ presets slapped together into one shiny black aluminum bean shaped box? I'm not really intrested in effects aside from a good compressor, can the BOD supply me with a decent compressor? is the BOD a good DI for recording into my PC? and finnaly, if the BOD is a complete failure in recreating those classic amps sounds, is the Johnson J-Station any better?
