My new Sansamp programmable bass DI just arrived. I bought it without trying one (yeah, yeah, I know) for 3 reasons: 1) I wanted something easy to use to give me a footswitchable boost for changes of tone/level within songs. 2) A DI is always useful to have in your gig bag for going to straight to the desk in emergencies 3) I could NOT find one to try over here in the UK :scowl: Anyway, I just tried it out and I'm thinking "Well... okay I suppose". I mean, it will do the boost thing as above and serve as a decent quality DI, but it hasn't made the real impression on me that I may have expected judging from some of the reviews I've read. I tried it with my EMG equipped Jazz through my smaller Harke head (3000) and a 210. Haven't tried it with the bigger rig yet. Don't get me wrong here, it' a nice quality unit and the sound isn't bad at all. I'm sure I'll use it quite a bit. It just hasn't knocked me out with the sort of WOW factor I was hoping for. Anybody out there got some killer tips for dialling up real nice tones with this thing? And please, don't say "try before you buy" (see number 3 above).
