    I am interested in getting one of these and just looking for opinions on anyone who is using one?

    Expensive but I'm a firm believer you get what you pay for most times.

    Any real world experience users here?

    I wish I was. Up until recently I had a B15 custom made point to point amp with a killer DI so I didn’t need one, but now I’m taking another look...

    What's the verdict Bro?
    Is it a keeper? I should believe the hype? Have you given it a work out with Passive Bass?

    Its definitely a keeper, I love mine. It just sounds really lovely with all my basses passive or active, Even on Piezo due to the 10Meg input impedance.

    It makes my quilter amp sound like my 300Watt tube amp without all the weight. The bass seems way more responsive and the Di output is killer!.

    you never see second hand ones, for a reason.

    Try a Two Notes 'Le Bass' pre. It does the same thing for a fraction of the price. Since I got it I never play without it. All my basses are more lively, punchy and responsive with it.

    Only bad thing about it is the powersupply but I hooked it up to a VoodooLab anyway. It needs 12v.
