    If you were looking for a preamp to just drive a power amp, you really should look for something that runs off of more than 9 volts, IMO.
  5. Agreed.

    How about the Aguilar Tone Hammer? Not an overdrive per se, but it gets a nice warm drive tone with the AGS circuit engaged. Also has an excellent DI out. Plenty of output to drive a power amp.

    I would not use #2 as a preamp, it's a distortion pedal.

    I've used the BBE BMax in my main rig for around eight years, mostly in rock and metal bands. Works great for me.

    Just make sure you take a few minutes to learn how to EQ it correctly, as it uses the common "Fender tone stack" (easy search her on the forums to learn more).

    I also agree that the Soundwave distortion pedal would not make an effective preamp.
  9. +1

    I use my TH to drive a power amp, just need to make sure your amp doesnt have a wack input sensitivity.

    Do you want a pedal or rack mount ? What amp are you running it through ?

    I want pedal to get more modern metal/djent tone from my bass. And I want it for gigs, I've played in some venues and in some of them I had real bad bass tone, b/c of lack in good EQ on power amp.

    Amp varies at venues. And yeah, I went for Darkglass B7K. Ordered one today. And now I'm hyped and cannot wait for it. Think this one will solve a lot of problems with tone I want.
