good lunchbox pre for bass DI

i was wondering if anyone has had good experiences with any 500 pre's for bass DI tracks.

i have a radial JDI and would like a fat pre to go into.

i use the Shadow Hills Mono Gama most for Bass DI.
though if my OSA MP1-L3 had a DI, i'd probably use it instead. I got it with line level on the front though.
The things the MP1-L3 does to the low end as a mic pre are just stunning.

good luck!

I second the Shadow Hills Mono Gama! Absolutely love mine as a Bass DI and Vocal pre.

Depending on the session I will also use a SansAmp BassDI into the Gama to shape the bass more when tracking. I would imagine the JDI into the Gama would be great as well.

From what I'm hearing the Mono Gamas are a lot easier to get these days. Either way they are worth the wait.

I hope this helps.

I thought the L3 did have a DI, hence the name.
I prefer the BAE 312 most times to the L3 for bass DI. The bottom just seems to go for ever.

It does as standard, but the customer can choose to have it taken off and have the 1/4" +4 line level.

That's what I think about the L3...
