Bass DI

I been using three different ones...depending on the type of music. The Reddi by A designs and the Fatboy Di by Teegarden. Both are tube but very different from each other. The fatboy' has to me a little more " stank" on it or a little more grawl
In my opinion. Both are awesome. Ya no that pain of loosing your tone by switching from playing with your fingers to thumb back groovin? On both DI's
my friends that issue is gone,gone gone. For me Fatboy for rock and Reddi for
R&B.....for now. And last I like the Tonelux Mp1 preamp which I've had for awhile
Still love it too. Well that's my two cents.

Interesting to see this thread come back to life.
After picking up a 2-610 for literal peanuts, I went back to one and a blue strip 1176. Nothing beats it. The absolute best bass DI ever

It's a channel strip - pre/EQ/dynamics.

And where do you get the notion his J bass is $400?

Why do you do what you do? Is 'spurious comment' your middle name? You get a thrill from incessant trolling?

... I was just kidding around. I didn't realize it would be taken so seriously.
gc sells J basses for as low as $200. So I assumed the more high end models were maybe double the price?? so that's where the $400 actually came from.

Although IMhO it would make more sense to buy a $400 mic pre and a nice $4000 bass like a Warwick, Pedulla bass or perhaps an Alembic?? I think it's situational but it is well known in the recording industry that the source sound is the most important aspect of recording. However we all have a different approach and whatever works is cool... I apologize for you taking me the wrong way in my earlier post. I'm really sorry I didn't specify that I was joking. I hope everything is cool.

peace out sir

Well, considering if the source is a J bass, as opposed to a Warwick, Pedulla or an Alembic - you realize they're totally different in terms of how they sound, how they feel to the player, how they sit in the mix, etc...each is a distinct instrument and tone, and aren't interchangeable.

You might as well say a Hofner is the same as a P-bass is the same as a Rick is the same as a Stingray, etc...

balderdash and malarkey...

I stand corrected. I guess I don't know enough about bass sounds. I should not have commented on it. I'm a ric 4001 guy myself. I never actually played a JBass. I saw one a couple times up close before though. I know Jaco played one. So good enough for him... good enough for everyone else I suppose.

Not wanting to pick on you, as you've already clarified that your comment wasn't all that serious...

However, for the record, your guesstimate of the price of a J-Bass would only be true for the 'student' models (squire etc) that are not what working/recording musicians generally use. Your $400 estimate was out by about a factor of four (or more, depending on the model and vintage etc). Eg:

My ZOD bass DI is for sale if anyone's interested.

I dig it, just not as much as my solo 610

PM if interested.
