    FWIW - I think most people can find a use for a SA BDDI.

    1.Change the Warwick onboard preamp BUT keep the MEC PU's.
    2.Change your amp!!! ;)

    Ummm...the Hartke seems a fair choice for the price.
    Have you considered a tube amp,now that you mentioned "character"? ;)

    Please don't compare a Sansamp with a tube amp! :rolleyes:
    The Sansamp is OK by itself but I never tried a Sansamp/Kickback combination (I never had both things at the same time).
    Looks you're determined to jump on a Sansamp.Fine,but try to run it through an active loudspeaker of some sort or through a small PA output stage,not through a dedicated bass amp.

    thanks
    I will go to try HUGHES&KETTNER Quantum combos next week
    but they are a bit on the expensive site.
    I have played EBS drome 12" and i like it very much (i want that sound) but i noticed that Yamaha passive basses sound the best with EBS and active basses didnt sound so nice.

    So can u help me whit choosing amp from 700-1200 $ for practice and smal gigs but very portable.
    thanks.

    Yes i saw it such a beauty but how the f..... sounds this P pup on 5 stringer ????

    Here is bb 415 very cheap around 550$
    So ure advice is to buy Yamaha bb 415 and EBS.
    Put together is around 1750 $ a little expensive but i think to go with that.

    thanks
