Hello everyone this is my first post! I'm trying to build a pedalboard for my gigs. I want to play straight through the PA without micking the cab. I have a MIA Jazz, and another MIA P is on the way. Here are my pedals and how I plan to set them up: Fender MIA J >> Korg Pitchblack - PreAmp - MXR 10 Band EQ - EHX Chorus - MXR Octave - MXR Compressor - Radial JDI >> PA So I need a Preamp to shape my tones with footswitches. I play with the pick and with the fingers. I play mostly grunge and post-punk style, but don't like distortion or overdrive tones. I love passive basses and don't want to deal with the phantom power thing (a potential problem here in my city) so I prefer a passive DI. That's why I need a strong pedal Pre-Amp. budget: 300 $ What do you prefer? And do you think a need a Booster pedal too? Thanks!
