    What's a good low price preamp?" I was looking at the BBE B-Max solid state is that any good, or are there better ones for the same price?

    Don't laugh, but one of my favorite preamps is the ART Tube Channel. It offers a very clean sound and is very flexible.

    i havent played the bbe but bass player gave it a good review (if that means anything anymore) :rolleyes:
    i'm not sure how much one of those goes for, so i cant comment on other ones.
    There are always good used deals on here, bassgear, and occasionally e-bay too.

    We're fortunate to have a great resource available for these decisions: Give www.basstasters.com a look-see . . .
  5. I've heard good things about the Bmax but I haven't tried one. Do yourself a favor and contact riksmusic.com They are asking $240 for one last time I checked.

    if the bbe pre amp, is anything like the bbe maximizer, in quality wise, its a good bet.

    the ampeg svt pre amp is rocking.

    as well as the pedal/rack mount version of the sans amp bass driver is good, that is an awesome pre amp.

    Props to the BDDI!

    I heard it matched up with an SVT-CL last week. Seemed like a weird combination... but it sounded sweet. I cant wait to pick up an RBI :hyper:
