i play in a jazz/fusion/funk type trio and have some gigs coming up where im going to be going direct to the house. I play a passive fender jazz and was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on a simple direct box that would help boost my signal. I know everyone here is a big fan of the sansamp but i want something thats not going to color my tone. Aguilar and Ampeg have nice tube direct boxes (i know they will color my tone, but tube coloring is good coloring in my book) but they are fairly expensive ($400-500). Anyone have any ideas?
