    Hey everyone,

    Curious lately about the Ampeg Tube DI - wondering just how effective they are at warming up an already warm SS sound that I have w/ my B100R, or my Ashdown MAG300H.

    I know they're nice-to-have's, esp. for PA'd gigs. Who runs one of these, and how do you like it? Are there others worth looking at?

    Oh well, no advice here I guess.

    I'm picking up a used Tube King TK99 today for 60 bucks. Low cost way to help me understand how well a tube pedal or DI can warm up my SS amp.

    Anyone else have the Tube King?
