Let me first say that I play the bass purely for recreational purposes. I usually a 1980 Fender P bass, Flatwounds, Ashdown Mag300 and Avatar 2x10s. I love to play Rush, Yes and more recently, Iron Maiden. I play without any effects. I am dying to get the sounds of the above masters w/out breaking the bank. I have narrowed it down to the Sansamp BDDI and the Fulltone Bass Drive...I think. You guys ALWAYS provide such great professional opinions and I'm hoping you'll do the same here. Thank you!!!
