Any recommendations for a darkglass-esq Driver/Preamp/Di & a decent Compressor around £100-150 new/used?
I've started a new project in which I'll be playing bass in a band (which I haven't done in a decade since I was in college), so want to build myself up a passable rig.
At home I just plugged the bass into a pocket POD to noodle, but that's not going to get near the sound I want for this band.
The studio we practice in I've been using the DI from a TC combo into the PA, which has been working ok. But I want a bit more.
I like the bass tone from the likes of 'Nolly' Getgood (periphery), J-M Labadie (gojira), Amos Williams (tesseract). All use very simple (but expensive) Set ups.
I think what I'm after is quite a low ratio compressor to smooth out my erratic playing, and an OD to give me a bit of grind.
I'd love to feed an empress or Cali compressor into a B7K, straight into the PA. But I'm not made of money and don't want to throw too much in until we take off a bit.
I've played through the Boss ODB and don't like it, sounds too fizzy and like a chainsaw. I preffer something more... "Throaty"?
Any recommendations? new or used around £200-300 for both
am I better just to save and get the higher end stuff?
Also we're still months and months away from gigs so I'm not too worried on my own amp just yet / can borrow for a while.
