My first foray into a DI/EQ/Etc. box has been a Hartke Bass Attack. Like the sound of the pedal, but I'm finding some limitations that are irritating - such as a big volume difference with the drive channel engaged that I can't dial out - and a noticeable amount of 'tone suck' when the pedal is in the signal chain vs. not in the signal chain. I'm big on 'simple' - I want my floor tuner (a Snark stomp tuner), a DI/EQ/Etc box, and at some point probably a Boss LMB-3 comp/limiter. Hoping to not get sucked into the Darkglass, etc vortex - who knows.... ANYWAYS... I'm beginning to consider the alternatives to the Hartke pedal - the M-80, and the horde of Tech 21 offerings. I went to their website and counted 8 different models of pedal!!! You read the descriptions and each one tells you it can do everything you want it to! So - I'm hoping for a helpful TB'er to be able to sort of summarize at least the following models. I've searched and can't really find the answer I'm looking for - I'm sorry, I know there a 10 bajillion threads that are similar already!! Oh - I play in an oldies/classic rock/blues cover band, but the music I really love is 80's-90's hard rock/grunge/rap metal (Rage, etc), and progressive stuff (Rush of course, Tool, etc). Hoping to put together a project playing that music soon... So - Paradriver, Bass Driver, Classic, Bass Driver Deluxe, Bass Driver Programmable, then ad in the VT Bass and VT Bass Deluxe (which appears are both non-DI boxes) - and then the upcoming VT Bass DI... holy cow!!! I'm pretty sure I don't want the size of the Bass Driver Deluxe or Programmable - but is the tonal variation available worth the size jump? Like I said - I like simple Which model does the TB community generally agree would fit my style best? I don't live in an area that I can go test drive products Thanks a TON for any help!!!
