Hi everybody, long-time lurker/first-time poster here and I apologize if this is a dumb question to start off with: Are bass distortion pedals similar to guitar distortion pedals in that they'll sound good going into a tube amp but sucky going into a solid state amp? Right now I have a P-bass, an MXR m-80 bass DI + and an Ampeg b100r solid-state combo, and the mxr doesn't sound as great as I had hoped (fuzzy, but in a non-musical way). I don't really have the budget to upgrade to a tube amp (though I am planning to upgrade to a GK 700rb, also solid state). Would a tube preamp between the MXR and the amp help get a better distortion tone out of it? I do have my eye on the ART Tube Pac preamp/compressor. Thanks for any insight/advice .
