    I found the importance of having a good pre-amp when I was tracking a bass guitar on a session a while ago. We dicided to use the pre's on the Akai MPC we were using that evening. I've always said I'd like to get my hands on an ART Pro MPA or something like a Avalon VT737 or equivalent. Anyhow , the track sounded superb. The question I have is , what can I find that'll get me top notch results without breaking the bank? (ps. I currently have an aging Aphex 107 tubessence mic pre) :confused:

    I have had excellent results using a Mesa Boogie V Twin stomp box as a bass pre. Really clean bottom end. The bonus is you can use it for guitar tracks too!
