    Love to hear your opinion.

    Anyway, I am very interesting about EBS Micro Bass II now.
    Anyone try it before ?

    I read the first sentance and was going to reply with "EBS MicroBass II" and then I read the rest of the post :D

    I plug in to my MicroBass and that is IMHO the best so far / mats

    Mala, do you use the onboard preamp together with the MicroBass or do you bypass?

    Hi, I do not usually use the onboard preamp, I can predefine the sound for two basses because of the A and B input of the MicroBass. The preamp on the EBS amp is mainly the same as the one on the MicroBass so I leve that in passive mode. Usually I use the PU balance on the bass to shape the sound in between the songs and might also use the coilsplits or so. Pretty straight forward. However, I have asked a company to build a DI box with four inputs with separate preamps with tone controls and volume, this to host four basses with predefined sound and output. He input switches will be easy to manouver by hand as well. / mats

    Thanks, mala. :p

    I am going to make a mail order of MicroBass II although it is quite expensive,
    among all bass preamp/DI pedal in the market.

    When my HotRod-V plugs in, hope it won't let me down.

    I've been using the Sansamp Programmable Bass Driver DI with my amp settings flat. This thing is amazing. I've never used the EBS so I can't comment but the Sansamp rocks. My 2 cents.

    ya~ It sounds great. I can get all my wanted tone from it.

    MicroBass II is really a powerful tool for bassist due to
    its multiple function.

    But I think users may need a little more time to balance overall volume and tone
    for switching between channel A and channel B as clean channel and overdrive channel.
