What is the best set up to be CabLess? I would like to use a wireless on my bass that goes to a pedal board then to the PA.<br /> <br /> Skool Me!

Get a DI box with some amp-like controls or an amp sim.<br /> <br /> I'd go with something with multiple outs as well if you can - lets you run a monitor of your own later or a small amp if you want as well.<br /> <br /> SansAmp, modeler, sky's the limit.

I have a Sans Amp Bass Driver DI (runs on battery OR 115VAC transformer included). Has a part of the manual that will give you the settings for all your favorite sounds. You can blend from there. I have run direct into the PA at larger events using that Preamp/DI and I have also used it into my stage amp. <br /> <br /> In my situation, since it is low volume and just a two piece...we sit with the mixer between us, within 10ft. Not quite far enough away to be overly worried about external interference, so I just run from the bass to the mixer with my cord 9 out of 10 times. Never had a problem. <br /> <br /> BUT in your case with the Revue or Bobby's other project or with the 3 piece power trio, I suggest the Sans Amp.<br /> <br /> IF you are real particular about the choice of bass amp sound...by all means, buy the DI from that manufacturer. There is also an Eden World Tour DI for less than the Sans Amp. <br /> <br /> That would be hard for me to justify the Sans Amp over the Eden WTDI. It worked for me because I bought mine used several years ago, so the "used price" was less than the "new price" for the Eden WTDI...<br /> <br /> I carried my Sans Amp with the "Sound for Hire" gear when doing sound gigs. As you know, I don't do that as often these days. What college bar band wants their grand dad or someone his age running their sound and leering at the wimmins?

I should have posted this last night....<br /> <br /> <br /> BE SURE TO READ ALL THE REVIEWS! I am not endorsing this product because I have never seen nor heard one. No slam to Eden, I just don't have access to this device. You get one and like it, let me know...I might want one.

The Eden Pre Amp DI is based on the front end of their WTX Series of Class D Amplifiers. I had the amp & never completely liked the tone. It was okay, but lacking. Also didn't have enough headroom. <br /> <br /> I settled on the Aguilar Tone Hammer. They make this as a standalone preamp. I'm completely pleased w/ this amp. Praise from the FOH guys when I use the DI output.<br /> <br /> The Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig Multi-Effects Pedal also works well.<br /> <br /> Danny

Another vote for the SABDDI. I've used one for years and years: on recordings, big gigs and small, last week a church gig with a SABDDI Deluxe (3 channels). Batteries last. Regular centre pin negative 9volt adapter works, and - my fave - 48V phantom power.

ditto on the SansAmp, and also consider the Radial BassBone, it is a very cool Preamp/EQ/DI



Do'in the 5 string thing!

As above - SABDDI is all you need, if you like the tone. I've had mine for nearly 20 years and it's always in my signal chain.
