    I'm voting RBI, but there are times where I could use a PSA instead. If you are looking for a good single bass sound, and would like to be able to have a host of different amp sounds, but don't need to switch between them during a gig, the RBI is great. You can have an agressive sounding tone for one gig, and a rounder vintage tone at another. But if you need to go from Tears of A Clown, to say... System of a Down.... in consecutive tunes (yesh, we all do this, right?) then the PSA could be better because you can use a MIDI patch controller to move you from one program to the next.

    But I'd take the RBI if it was just a matter of getting one good bass amp sound at a time.
