I've used Peavey gear exclusively since 1978 because I always found that their gear (for the most part) accurately amplified the sound of my basses without coloring my sound. I switched to Mesa Boogie in the 90's but while it was incredible gear, it was not the holy grail of tone that I thought it would be. I was just reading up on Useful Arts products and they claim to accurately represent the sound of your instrument. Anybody have any similar tastes? What equipment have you used that clearly represents your instruments tone? I want an audience to hear the tone of my bass, not the tone of my amp. I know I could just run a direct box, but I want my stage sound to be the same as what the audience hears.
