Hey all! Merry New Year! Just a quick question and I thought this would be a better forum than the amp forum. I have been running a GB Shuttlemax 12.0 for a few years and I've really enjoyed it, but recently, I'm seeing signs of imminent catastrophic failure(DI isn't working properly, Tube channel isn't working at all, sporadic thermal shutdowns). I've been toying with the idea of going to a pedal pre with a power amp, to keep the weight down and the power up. That's kind of why I don't want a rack full of gear. I'm ok with carrying a power amp, but I'd really like to keep the rest to a pedal pre, tuner, compressor, & chorus pedals. Anyone run that kind of setup? I'm researching Aguilar Tone Hammer, Sadowsky Outboard Pre, Radial Bassbone, and a few others. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. BTW, I play in a modern rock cover/original band & pop/dance/party band. I'm running the basses in my sig through Mesa Powerhouse 1200 & Mesa 410 cabs. Mods, if you'd rather this be in the amp section, please feel free to move it...Thanks!
