    I own

    Tech 21 VT Bass
    Radial Tonebone Bassbone
    Aguilar Tonehammer
    Line 6 XT Live

    and have used them all live as pre-amps going into a power amp. If I had to choose just one it would be the Tonehammer.

    This thread has landed in a spanish bass forum..and I'll say the same that i've said there.

    From the list , my three favourites:

    1 - Tech 21 Sansamp ( This is only pure fanatism. I love the sound of this pedal, but I know that it doesn't fit in some situations)

    2 - Darkglass B7K (close to the Sansamp..I almost put it in first place , but I still love Sansamp sound)

    3 MXR DI+ , for his sound, versatility and price friendly.

    I'm waiting for two releases : the Darkglass Vintage Deluxe and the MXR Bass Preamp

    No love for the Eden WTDI? I almost ordered one the other day, but spent the money on a new head instead (EBS Reidmar).

    Seems the Tech21 RPM (Rackmount Preamp) should be here. I have it and it's awesome. I can dial in nearly every tone with the thing.

    Not my style , but it has a good price/quality ratio... I know several guys who had one of these and they are in love with it.
