Hi all. I'm a bit under the pump and I apologise if this is not a question directly with regard to amps. I'm not sure if I should post this in effects or what. I have a cr@ppy show to play tonight all the way across town. It's truly going to suck. I can't get access to my car to get my rig from the studio and the promoter is scratching his head about backline availability. Long story short I don't think I'm going to be able to get access to an amp. The promoter has told me that he will let me know one way or the other by midday which is when I'm going to pick up my newly set-up bass from the store. I'm thinking that if I don't have an answer about an amp I need to get a Direct box urgently so I can go straight into the desk. The DI pedals the store have are the Aguilar tone hammer for apx $300au, Sansamp for about the same, VT for $245 and the Eden WTDI on Special for $145au. Im torn because I love the tone of the Tone Hammer and I'm more likely to use it again as a pedal in the future, especially since it has the drive tone. But it's double the price of the WTDI, which I'm told doesn't possess the same level of gumption but has an excellent Eden sound nonetheless. Im not big on the Sansamp sound and the VT has never really hooked me. Does anyone have experience with any of these units? If you were in my position which would you get? I'm leaning toward the Eden because it's half the price and should 'suffice' for these isolated instances where I can't get at my rig and I can probably stick my TubeZone in front of it anyway. I certainly don't feel like shelling out $300 for the sake of this p.o.s. gig but it's not like anyone's going to take the pedal off me afterward. For reference I play metal, tuned to C and my main bass Is a Spector Legend Custom.
