    Hey there, TB'ers. A lurker has entered the building.

    My "rig" is in its fledgling stages, and as more of a hobbyist than a band member (5p.m. to 2a.m. nightshift job) I tend to play with headphones on. On an unrelated note to my original question, anybody have suggestions for a good set of 'phones for me?

    Back to my point.

    For what it's worth, I have lurked, searched, and dug around while not working at work for some weeks now, looking for a effects blend that will produce a nice amount of depth in my tone and (maybe) a little overdriven sound. The Sansamp comes to mind, but after talking with my geeky guitarist brother, who pointed out that I have little need for DI, I'm hesitant to get the OD with all the bells and whistles attached if I don't need them.

    First stop is a qtron -- a friend let me screw around with his and I couldn't have had more fun unless I was oil-wrestling strippers.

    Any suggestions how to add a little more bounce in my sound?
  2. why not the sansamp? its not just a DI, its an overdrive as well isn't it? if you like the way it sounds, why not get it? otherwise Sansamp also has the new programmable bass driver, so you could look at that too...

    SansAmp GT2 will give you lots of tones less the DI.

    You can also slash and hack your way through the distortion mega thread on top to get some dirt on other dirt boxes.
