    Right now I used a heavy low-mid sound. I love it, but it is killing the sound of my band. I'm looking for a pre-amp/overdrive box that would warm it up and distort it a little.

    I've been thinking of the following.. please give me your opinions.

    Sansamp Driver, preamp DI (the one with the knobs)
    Sansamp RBI
    TubeWork 903 blues distortion

    Right now I run an Ashdown Amp into 2 2x15 cabs.

    I haven't tried the others, but I have a SansAmp Bass Driver and it is the nuts! Won't play live without it.

    It can add noticeable distortion without sounding like a cheap fuzz unit.

    Dial in a lot of the unit's Blend, and it simulates tube warmth reasonably well. And it is built like a brick s _ _ _ _ _ _ _ e.
