Hey peeps, I'm a bass player planning in investing in some equipment to get more of the warm rich sound of dem tubes and less of the coldness of the SS. I've never owned any music gear with a tube before tho so I'm fairly confused about the topic. I've been thinking of getting an Effectrode tube compressor pedal and/or a tube preamp like maybe the Noble one, I really like what I heard from these equipment. Also I mostly do my gigs through a PA so it would be perfect if I'd just have a pedalboard for the sound. My confusion comes from how does the gear with tubes effect each other and solid state equipments. So for example if I get both the effectrode and the noble is that too much tubeness, is that a thing? Or is are they just going to make each other sound nicer? Also what happens if I combine the Noble with a GK 500 mb class D bass head. Does it make the bass amp sound more rich and nice too or it just helps a bit but still gonna sound like SS? Or it doesn't make much of a difference? Same question as what happens if I record with noble and with a cheap focusrite AI? Do I get the tubey sound or it would be lost because of the cheap focusrite? Thanks for any insights!
