    U playing a passive bass?

    Without having tried a lot of preamps/DI I'd say that if you're playing a passive bass the sadowsky will seriously FATTEN up your tone.

    I had a sadowsky outboard preamp when I was playing my passive fender jazz bass. Without the preamp it sounded a little dry. With the preamp it just sounded... huge!

    Sometimes I regret that I've sold the sadowsky.. cuz with my old setup (fender passive jazz -> aphex punch factory -> sadowsky preamp) I could get a real punchy and phat tone :)

    I can't really compare it to the sansamp cuz I haven't tried it (yet)

    Luxembourg, Europe
    Nordstrand pickups
    The Sansamp gives you the option of changing your sound drastically, getting overdrives.... but also staying rather clean. To me it is very versatile. The Sadowsky is very clean.
    I think both units are very good. It depends on what you are looking for.
