I have used Sansamp products for years, 10+ years to be more accurate. I originally used the Bass Driver as a pre amp into power amp rig. Later on I replaced the Bass Driver with a RBI. Friday night bad festival power fried some gear...including my RBI. Going to send it in for repair. Pulled out my old Bass Driver for a temp fix and to be blunt it stinks. With the RBI my rig could knock down the walls of Jericho. Not that I NEED to be that loud but the headroom is great and with 2 Marshalls on stage with me that little nudge is awful nice. With the Bass Driver I can barely get loud enough before the power amp starts clipping and the RBI destroys it for tone. I thought the RBI was just a rack version of the driver. I didn't remember that much difference back in the day when I got the RBI, but is this normal or am I doing something wrong. Any help appreciated I will really be suffering until that RBI comes back.
