Hi TB, For my Texas country band I normally use this rig: Bugera BVP5500 (just the power amp) Aguilar ToneHamer Pre/DI (as the pre amp/DI) Eden D210XLT 8ohm Eden D115XLT 8ohm The bass I normally play is a Deluxe American Fender Precision, with a G&L MJ-4 Tribute as my back up. SO I love everything about my rig tonally right now, it sounds badass, but I'm curious what I could replace my BVP5500 with. Perhaps the tubes are bad but the pre amp just doesn't sound very nice. I want a beefier sounding tube sound but I'm kind of settling for the Aguilar TH pre, which does kick ass and all but what are my options for the tubey pre I could replace the Bugera with? Please ask questions I'll answer. For reference the BVP is a ripoff of an SVT-3 pro (which is on the list) My needs: Work for 2 8ohm cabs, with head room (250w @8ohm or so) Somekind of sweepable mids/9bandEQ/midrange voice selector etc. (at least 4 band eq) Tube preamp DI out, preferably with gain control Power amp input (okay not really a need but hey) Any kind of an onboard compressor limiter would be cool Durable/rackmountable is preferred Okay so whats out there? I am aware of the WTP series Eden, Ampeg and what I already have but want to see if there are more options., I'm sure this is something that is out there sheesh Thanks!
