My dillema: I want to get as close to an all tube SVT sound without buying the SVT because I CANNOT afford one at this time. What I can afford: $200-$300 tops. What I'm currently using: A '74 p-bass w/ '62 "original" reissue pickups through a GK 800RB into an Ampeg 4x10 HLF. I also use an Aguilar 924 outboard. Style of Play: My style of play ranges from pop to punk / hard rock to country. What I'm considering: Using one of the following w/ the GK: a) Tech 21 RBI RackMount Bass Driver/Di or b) SVP Pro preamp or c) Some type of onboard or outboard preamp instead of or in conjunction w/ the Aguilar. Any opinions/advice on solving my dillema or on the considerations I'm considering? Any opinions on what is the most versatile set-up in regards to playing gigs and recording? Thanks.
