I've tried several of these gizmos and could never find one that didn't sound like shit. most of them are loaded with a bunch of useless goofy f/x that you'll never need. and the presets (as usual) are a joke. but even if you strip em down to a basic dry tone (preamp and eq) you end up with a thin boring tone

the Bass POD from Line 6 is probably the best of the bunch but I still didn't like it. if used strictly for recording it might make do, but I've found that the best tones comes from quality amps, like Eden, SWR, and Ampeg. leave the toys and digital doodads to puffy-haired guitarists. I use an Ampeg SVT-III Pro with an Aphex tube c/l and BBE sonic maximizer in the f/x loop and I get all the tone I need. great for both the studio *and* the live gig (where most of these preamp/dsp units fail miserably)

just my 1/2 cent
