Tech 21 Driver?

  1. Is this good as a standard Preamp? I know its an Overdrive pedal (which I need) and a D.I. box (which I also need), as well as a preamp. What kind of tone does it produce? Does it completely alter the sound of your bass or does it leave most of the original tone?

    The search function would yield TONS of info on this.

    That said, me $.02:

    It is definitely not a transparent preamp. It alters the tone of your bass A LOT. Many people like it though. Good "drive" function, IMO. EQ-wise, it's too scooped for many folks. To control this somewhat (ie: less scoopage_, keep the blend knob below 12 o'clock.
