Hey Guys, I am currently with no Amp or Cab - waiting for my Mesa TT-800 to arrive somewhere around July. I am meanwhile looking for something fancy to plug straight into, mainly for silent practice with Headphones and Backing Tracks through Aux. Anyway, I would like it to be something which will stay relevant when my main Amp will arrive, so I can use them together and experiment with sound. So concluding: Headphones and Aux are mandatory Silent practice with no Amp (bass straight to the preamp with headphones) mainly... ...But with option to serve well as Preamp with my main Amp later I am looking for something versatile, but mainly for clean and warm tones, no high distortion really necessary DI or some option for recording would be nice, but not mandatory I mainly consider: - EBS Microbass 3 Preamp - looks like a swiss army knife with tuner on the top of cake - NUX Malvin Lee Davis Preamp - really great compromise between versatile yet simple - Markbass Vintage Pre - this tube-thing looks really interesting - Trace Elliot Multipedal Transit-B - another can-do-it-all with nice features I am open for other suggestions thou. Darkglass Preamps and Ampeg SCR-DI looks great aswell but my first impression was that they are mainly for high-distortion types of sound, while I dig warm, clean and tube-like sounds. Edit: If this matters - I am playing passive Fender Jazz.
