    I've got a nearly finished bass setup, I use a Spector 5 string bass run into my old practice amp for a preamp, then into a Crown XLS 202 poweramp, and from there into 2 1x15 cabs.

    However, I really need a dedicated preamp, as this one is dying.

    So I've been looking at the BassPODxt, and been wondering how it performs next to the BOSS GT-6B, which was my other choice for a preamp.

    I personally, for my own stuff, when I mix it on the comp, use a lot of delay and reverb effects in conjunction to get this really tripped out atmospheric feel.

    In the band I'm in, which is an old school metal band (Metallica, slayer, Blind Guardian), if I use effects, they'll probably be distortion, and a flanger or a phaser. Possibly reverb but I doubt it. Mostly I'd use the amp for its modeling capabilities.

    I've played on the BassPODxt PRO, but not on the BOSS GT-6B

    Which would you advise I get? Why?
