As many of you know, I am the proud owner of the Sans Amp Bass Driver. For those of you who are also owners, perhaps you can provide some wonderful insight. Anyway, my setup is Spector (18 volts)==>Bass Driver==>Fafner. I use the SABDDI primarily as an effect rather than as a DI box, and like the idea of distortion. However, my bass runs so hot that I've found in order for me to get a really good crunch, I have to reduce the load coming out of the SABDDI to crank the distortion and presence. What this does is to produce a pretty good distortion, but it sounds a bit too compressed. Have any of you experienced this? What have you done to correct the problem? I don't want to lower the input gain on the Fafner because when I'm not using the SABDDI, I'm afraid I won't be giving the Fafner an ideal amount of signal.
