Admin Post I think I want a new preamp for live bass playing. Right now I'm using a Line 6 Bass POD XT Pro, through a Crown K2 power amp, into a GK 2x10 cab loaded with Eminence drivers. I'm just a P-bass guy. I'm about to switch back to Labella flat wounds, and I want a more... organic? More... analog? I only use the POD because I got it at a steal of a price. It does ok. I don't use any of the effects in it at all, and I only use a slight bit of compression on occasion. But here's the deal - I have close to zero budget. So I'm probably looking for some forgotten 80s rack mount piece that has zero modern features. I could sell my POD and get some more money to spend, but I made a pact with myself a long time ago that I would never again sell any gear... only save up and purchase.
