If this is in the wrong forum, someone please redirect me. I am looking for a good quality direct box for those times when I don't need to break out my amp. I am not looking for something with all the bells and whistles like a Sansamp or a U5. I just want something that will give me a quality reproduction of my bass' sound. I'm not very savy when it comes to this area, as I have always had some form of direct out on my amps. Which is better, passive or active, tube or solid state? Are there any other features I should be on the lookout for. I really don't want to spend a small fortune either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
