Comments about BBE BMAX-t Tube Bass Guitar Preamplifier:
I have owned both versions of this preamp.I know this may offend some of the tube purists out there but I actually prefer the tone of the solid state version over the tube version. (For those unfamiliar the B-MaxT is the tube version and the B-Max is solid state) That being said both are extremely well built and offer great tonal options. The built in Sonic Maximiser is a great feature and does wonders to enhance the sound of your bass, so much so that even though I left the pre-power setup in favor of a lighter digital setup(GenzBenz Shuttle 6.0)I went out and bought a standalone Sonic Maximiser pedal to still have it in my arsenal. The tube version was just a bit too warm and fuzzy for me but thats strictly a personal preference. If you like that "traditional" tube sound and want to go with a pre-power setup I would highly recommend this. I found for me though, that I preferred the solid state version and used stomp boxes to get a warmer tone if I needed it. I also experimented with different tubes and i will say that I found that changing tubes influenced the sound much more on this than the Ampeg SVT I had. So by experimenting with tubes you can probably dial in exactly what you want.
