    yeah I wana know too!!!!
    how does it compare to the tech 21 bass di?
    Gate, separate distortion channel, and three instead of 2 band eq all seem to be great improvements to its predicessor but, how does it really compare? is it transparent?
    let us know! :)
  3. By the looks of the MXR Bass Driver DI, their using micro components w/mini pots (lot's o' them) and them there pots are awful close to the bypass switch. One wrong heavy stomp and it could be "live on-stage-crisis time" if you accidentally touch a pot with your shoe on that tiny box.

    I think I'll bump this one up, I'm really curious about it. And the GK Diesel-Dawg, for that matter. Has anyone tried it?

    I have been looking at these MXR Bass DIs in catalogs lately. They are cheaper than the Sans Amp Bass DI but how does its sound compare. I am going to get one pretty soon but still unsure if i should save some money and go with the MXR or if it would be wiser to use a couple more dollars on the Sans Amp.

    Robert Trujillo endorses them now, and BP really liked the tone and features (yeah, I know they usually do stay on the positive side, but they REALLY seemed to like this one.) I think it is worth checking out, unfortunately the GC here doesn't have one.
