Who's using a separate preamp/DI all the time?

  1. Lately, I find myself using my Yamaha NE-1 EQ with all my basses. I know it's not a preamp, but, I guess I'm getting so used to its sound that if I play without it, my tone seems less than acceptable to me.

    How many of you are using a sansamp, or something similar so much that if you don't have it plugged in, you feel there's something missing? All my basses sound good going clean through my amp, but, I never thought I'd start depending on an outboard box all the time.

    If so, what are you using, and how does it change you bass' sound?
