I'm in rehearsals with a cover band that will primarily play 1980s rock and pop and am adjusting my gear to help emulate the different bass tones I'll need, which will range from bass-heavy passive songs (Hall & Oates, Billy Idol, David Bowie) to active-ish, mids-present stuff like Duran Duran, Genesis, Asia, etc. In the interest of portability, my cab (4-ohm Schroeder 1210R) and amp (G-B Shuttle 6.2) need to stay for now, and I'm planning on running both a passive J-bass (Modulus Genesis VJ) and an active something-or-other (hopefully a Spector or similar) on stage. What I'm looking for is a preamp pedal that will help warm the Shuttle up when activated (I definitely do not need modern, scooped, treble-heavy tones, and generally don't like them), but won't cut mids -- even when off -- like the SansAmp pedals do. I'm running a PBDDI right now and like it OK, but I do believe that it's cutting the mids that the Schroeder -- not to mention a ton of the music I'm playing -- feeds on. Ideally the preamp should be dual-channel and dual-input (if I decide to run both basses on stage) but doesn't absolutely have to be: my main concerns are tonal control, neutrality when off (to let the Shuttle's tone through as one tone), and some sort of mid control. (and unity gain control, if dual input.) Thing is, the options are making my head swim: EBS MicroBass II, Radial Bassbone, Aguilar Tone Hammer DI, Sadowsky Preamp, SansAmp Para Driver (again: a natural mids cut, though less pronounced than in the Bass Driver), etc. If I have to go with an A/B box and/or boost pedal to accommodate the second bass, I will -- but I'd rather not since I'm trying to keep my pedalboard footprint fairly small as well. I'm turning to you guys to steer me in the best direction for my needs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
