I'm looking for a more gritty tube-saturated tone à la SVT for recording purposes, but I'm not sure where to look. On the one hand, I know Tech 21's DIs are well liked, but I already have a DI output with a pre/post switch on my amp, a GK 700 RB, and a Sadowsky SPB-1 Preamp/DI. Getting a third DI seems redundant, no? I also used to have a VT Bass Deluxe, and I hated it—it was too bright. I've heard good things about Ampeg's Scrambler and Classic Analog Pre pedals, but how good can a CAD$129 pedal be? Are they quiet? Reliable? Which of the two will give me a gritty tube-saturated tone? Are there any other preamps or overdrive pedals I should be looking into?
