Hey Metalheads, what amp-overdrive/distortion are you using?

  1. :bassist: Hail you metalheads, :bassist:

    I play in a metal stoner band ala Kyuss and love distortion on bass from time to time. Now I wonder what are you guys using for distortion? I'm only asking for overdrive and distortion from an AMPLIFIER, no pedals.

    I'm very curious. I use a PSA-1 but I'm planning to get a SVP-Pro instead.

    thanks,

    Bart

    I have a Triaxis that Boogie has modded for bass for me. Supa heavy distortions if you want them, plus really cool lights!

    I'm recommending the SansAmp BassDriver DI. I know its a pedal. But It can be used as a pre-amp very effectively. Cheaper than a head too.. sounds great. I use one and the crunch you can get out if it is great.
