I've been searching to find a new amp to replace the peavey KB-300 (1x15 plus horn) ive been using, but it ends up costing too much valuble money that good be spent on a fretless or new video card. My question is, can one get by without an amp? I currently have a sansamp DI, could that, an EQ, and maybe a compressor or something, plugged into a PA, make a decent tone? If I bought an sansamp RBI or maybe even an SVT pre or somthing, would that be good? Thanks.
