I'm really interested in one of these 2 preamps and I'm having trouble deciding which one to go with. One major concern for me is the very "hot" output from my Spector Euro with active EMG's and Tonepump preamp. I want a preamp that could hand this bass' gain without distorting. I'm also looking for something that would really compliment the nice punch and overall sound of the Spector. I know the SVP-CL has an input pad of -10db vs. the SVP-Pro with and input pad of -15db. Is this a major difference? Other than the obvious like graphic EQ and overdrive/distortion, what are some of the other difference with these preamps with regards to sound? Does anyone out there have any experience with either of these preamps with Spector basses? Any help with trying to decide which is the better preamp would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!
