  1. Hello there
    I've been lusting for a EBS Micro Bass II preamp for a while, but cannot find any references. Can someone of you folks share your experience with this unit? Thanks alot!

    For me it's quite the same than HD350 preamp.
    Very cool, very clean. Lots of intresting controls.

    EBS will launch a new pedal preamp this year. It will be a tube preamp very fafner like.
     
  4. How is the DI on this unit compared to high end DIs (U5, Radial etc.)

    I had Brooklyn Gear send me out one last year to try. I thought it was very dead sounding. For me. It was so Hi-Fi that it just didn't have a life to me.

    They are very expenisve too. I was amazed when I got it because for what it cost I expected to be blown away. I was disappointed to say the least.

    I A/B it with the SansAmp BDDI and in my opinion the SansAmp ate the Microbass for lunch and dinner!

    The Microbass does not have any tube warmth to it at all. Even if I want Hi-Fi thing I'd go with the SansAmp Para Driver or the Acoustic DI. Both great for bass and Hi-Fi'ish.

    I am currently using the new SansAmp Programmable Bass Driver on my pedalboard and it sounds great and give me access to three presets. And at a street price of $10 more than the old BDDI you can't go wrong.
