Bass DI that sounds really similar to the A-Designs P1? Direct Injection & Re-amp Boxes

Bass DI that sounds really similar to the A-Designs P1?

Is there a DI that does anything like the thick growl of the P1 on bass guitar?

I've owned or have most the usual suspects - JDI, J48, 512, 312, ADL600, etc.

What about the Avalon U5?

Maybe I just need another P1, haha.

Can't compare it to the P1, but A Design's REDDI is the best DI I've ever used.

It's hard at first to justify spending $600 on a DI, but once you hear it it makes sense.

yeah another P1, refurbished or cosmetically damaged or otherwise used or irrelevantly blemished that you pay less money for

Does Aguilar still make anything similar?

Avalon U5 doesn't sound anything like a Pacifica/P1's DI.

Reddi has been my long-time fav for bass, but if you already know the sound you are after then you already know the answer to your question.
