Hi everyone, Long-time lurker with a question. I usually just read through the threads here to find any answers I need; I would post more, but usually by the time I see a post the question's already been answered, or it's over my head. A bit about my situation...I play bass for two praise team's at my church. I actually grew up playing acoustic guitar and switched to bass three years ago to help out at church, and have been playing that ever since. I'm looking for a good tube sound without using a tube amp. I can't haul a full rig in to church, so I'm looking for a DI-box or pedal solution. I've used the Sansamp BDDI for 2.5 years, but it died on me last week. I thought it sounded good, but wanted to dig around and see if there was something better out there before I spent $200 on a new one. It should be noted that I don't need the distortion of the BDDI any longer as I have an HBE Hematoma on the way that will handle that for me. I also already have EQ and chorus pedals. Basically, I've read through the forums and am ridiculously confused as to which way to turn. I *think* I just need a tube DI box like the Ampeg SVTDI, but I'm not sure. Will this give me a tube sound similar to the Sansamp (without the drive)? Or do I need to get a full preamp and use the DI to feed the house? Thanks in advance for any help.
