    the new mic pre looks cool. Haven't tried any of them out yet though.

    These pedals me, tecx, toasted and davidmwilson are very skeptical over, I've heard sound clips and it doesn't sound anything like a tube od or dist.

    I'm yet to try one though but I will get round to it one day.
  5. none of the above will really give you 'growl'.

    growl naturally resides within your bass and amp (pickups a little as well)... effects might be able to slightly enhance growl, but thats about it. they won't give you growl.

    alot of people associate growl w/ overdrive... thats all your going to get out of these pedals and out of all of the choices, the LPB2UBE will be the best choice.

    ...I know my MTD 535 growl my Fender MM is not so aggressive... but with my MXR limiter is sound little better becouse it makes stronger signal ....but I mean tube taste actualy....
