Do a search. There are already lots of threads on this.
But if you plan on using a power amp, you'll need a preamp with that.
Preamp = volume boost + tone controls
Some of the fancier ones have effects loops, line outs for recording, etc etc.
It's the stuff that leaks out of your speakers when your amp gets excited...
amplies a signal from instrument to line level
makes a high impedance signal low impedance
offers functions like EQ etc.
sometimes makes a signal stereo (dual mono actually) or ready for biamping
offers a FX loop
That's about it.
JMX, I think you need two preamps, if you want it stereo processed. Left and right. I'm quite convinced that when a preamp does so, it has two preamps built-in. Otherwise, it isn't possible.
In fact... some pedals make the signal stereo or the bass itself. Rickenbacker for instance. Then link the L signal to a channel (preamp) and the R signal to another channel (preamp), so then you've got stereo.
Yup, is should have read "dual mono", thanks for clearing that up.
