    I can think of the following off the top of my head:

    Fodera
    MXR M-80
    SABDDI
    Sadowsky
    J-Retro/East
    Aguilar

    What others are out there? I have a SABDDI, and wondering what other options there are (as an adjunct, not a replacement).

    Also the Tech21 Acoustic DI - works very nicely on bass, has the mid control also

    The new EBS MicroBass II - haven't seen this one in person yet

    I have both the SABDDI and SAADI, and both work very well on bass. I like them both quite a bit.
    I also have a Fishman, which is also very nice (see my review of it here at TB or on the Fishman site. I have not been using this as much since I got the SansAmps.

    And I have a Fodera Model 2000 pre which is a great unit, but, alas, I have not used it in over a year..and so it is for sale!
    It really is a top notch pre, and has a wonderful tone, but I have been mostly playing my piezo powered Godins and so do not have a hneed for it.
