Ok, interested in everyones opinion. Concerning trend recently that my bass is being D.I.'d by the sound tech at various "out of town" venues we're playing right now... Never had a problem before, as my Amp was always mic'd, but they're are insisting on the DI. My tone has basically gone to s**t since this has been happening. Any recommendations for a pre-amp/processor? Been looking at the Sansamp and the Aphex, but would like some opinions.... thanks guys!
