    Does anyone know if there are specific Preamp pedal DI’s for an acoustic bass or one that would be good for it?
    I have a Tone hammer DI and a Sans amp Vt preamp but they don’t seem “clean” enough.
    I have a Godin A4 fretless which is very loud and another ABG.
    Don’t know if I should just use a regular direct box or a preamp DI
     
  2. I use this for my Electric upright (along with a compressor and reverb) as well as my banjo and have been quite happy with it from a functionality, tone and price perspective. I don't care that it is a Behringer. It works, sounds good and and no one will be able to tell that it's not a $300 pedal.

    Either an Empress Para EQ if you are comfortable with manual EQ, or a Grace Alix/Felix.

    Once I figured out how to use parametric with a narrow Q setting to carve out the ugly feedback prone frequencies for ABG, that was all I needed.
