    Have had mine for three months, love it. It doesn't have that digital processed sound.
  3. I've had my RBI for a month now. I also use the
    sansamp DI bass driver pedal and the Tech 21
    bass compactor. I use the fat tube setting on both
    the RBI and the DI pedal. I had to cut back the
    presence knob on both to 9am and the drive on
    the RBI to 10.00am. The result is a big fat tube
    driven sound that absolutley shreds. I love it.

    I've had my RBI for about 8 months.... Great unit.. I especially love the blend control for dialing in the amount of tube sound if you will... It might not have the boutique sound of the Alembic or Aguilar, but it sounds great for most gigs I play... Steven...
