I've been looking for a good pedal to make my solid state combo (Ampeg 210-SP) sound like a tube, and my best bet is the Sansamp DI as the looks of it. But I've read alot of bad things about using it as a stomp box, but could I still try? Could I set the combo flat and use the DI as the pre-amp? (If this sounds dumb, It's because I don't know anything ;P) I'm not at the level where I am going to be recording, just jamming with some friends. But I seriously want that dirty tube overdrive tone D: If the Sansamp is really that futile as a stomp box, I'm just going to pitch for a Fulltone BassDrive. Edit - Reading up on Tool, Justin says he uses this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/sid=030410210320068012185242784823/search/g=home?q=sansamp+gt2 Think I'd have more luck with this, or should I not bother?
