    Have tried the DI thing. I'm all to happy with my Carvin head, 15 cab, with either my Thunderbird or Schecter 5 string. And my Sans Amp in the middle for some snarl. Recorded with a 57. Love my tone.

    Wow. Another SansAmp DI recommendation. I might have missed something in the past, and will need to look at the Sansamp.

    Carvin makes nice gear.

    As a dedicated ADA user, I believe in their sound. I trust it. To get a NEW modern sound with 'nothing' is an exciting promise. Also I need to spend some time with those VST's in the Apollo. They have a Ampeg SVT demo.

    ADA? Are you talking about the solid state preamps? That brings me back to the 80's....

    Again, I now more use PSP Vintage Warmer in the box. It gives a cool drive to bass guitar. I have a Sansamp and Eden WTDI. Both are kind of noisey, but they are kinda cool when added to clean direct signal.

    Sometimes a mic on a bass rig is also cool to mix in. It just depends on the band and player. Always the direct signal.

    ADA had full page centerfold ads in every guitar magazine. Back covers too.

    So you are aware their preamps have tubes.

    Only AX7 preamp tubes back in the day. My guitar players then used tube power amps after the pre. Still, an old school sound that did seem to work.

    More all tube amps for modern rock music. Was so back in the day as well. Whatever works. Not judging.

    The ADA T100S is the tube power section for the MP-1/MP-1 classic/MP-2 tube preamps. The MicroTube 200 was a first hybrid amplifier. Beating the marshall valvestate and fender cyber to the market. The MicroFet 100 was the high fidelity solid state power amp, that had an extended freq to 20-32k.

    They are extremely dependable and have NO knobs to break off or pots to get scratchy. Gig after gig they worked.

    30 years later, there has been much improvement.

    So what does this have to do with your bass tone?

It not just one instrument that makes a composition work. Once you have a good mix, then you can go into the individual sounds, and find what works best with the mix.

    Nobody ever knows what is best bass/drum/guitar/vocal sound without all of them together. Shit does not mix itself on it's own tone alone. It is a combination of all.
