    I played an eden CXC 210 the other day and I was impressed by the head!

    I really like the gain. However I may very well not be purchasing this amp (may go for GK 700RB 210 - for volume and transport features).

    I love the little gain button that is on the Eden WT-330 (time traveler). Is there any pedal or preamp that does this with the click of a button?
    I'm not looking for a grindy distortion or overdrive but I am looking a good growl and what I think is a good gain or boost, but that is only what I think it is (Am I right?).

    Every time I read threads like this, I feel that people are trying to get a cat to quack like a duck.

    Probably your best bet is a Sansamp Bass Driver DI. Give it a shot and see if it does what you need BEFORE buying the amp.

    Best of luck.

    If money were no object I would get a Super Redhead.

    I agree with Eric about the Sansamp. But actually, any pedal that has a level control can do the trick for you (some better than others). I happen to use a Tech 21 Bass Compactor. Turn up the volume on the pedal, and then bypass it. Play through your rig, and then hit the pedal to give you a little boost when you need it.

    tech 21 bass compactor: seriously

    I have owned one for about 2 and half years

    It only gave me a clean boost. I'm looking for growl.
