You can fool a lot of people with the Pod, but if you are really listening to the SONIC SERIOUSNESS/Lay of the sound sculpted landscape, you should consider any of the Alembic preamps. I also like the Aguilar 680. I have and use them all. Depending on what I have to accomplish, I almost always run two channels to record the bass. One is direct, the other through a mic-ed tube bass amp. A little compression to taste adds the right ingredients for the savvy ear. That is all. Enjoy. |

i have just recorded 2 new albums with the american accordionist michael ward bergeman in london. for one of these albums i need to add some electric bass parts. at the moment, i do not have a bass preamp. do not have much info about rack bass preamps. what would you suggest for me to buy? a unit like bass pod or a tube preamp?
thanks and best regards.
