We use the Neve 1272 neve Pre of Brent Averill. So far no bass player has complained . . . even those skeptical of DI boxes, I have a lot from Jensen, Tube Tech and API pres . . . the Neve blows all away. I am sure there are others that sound good too. I generally follow with a LA2A, Drawmer or TubeTech compressor depending on the sound I want.

I use a Summit TPA-200B mic pre that also has a direct input. The combination of both the mic pre on the cab and the direct signal is absolutely amazing.

Plugging directly into the fromt of a Manley Voxbox has worked well for me.

Another vote for the Manley Voxbox. Velvety and focused. Put a Sansamp and a Compressor Bank plug on it and you should be in heaven.

Manley U-5. Best bass direct box IMHO. I've A/B'd it against the demeter, ADL tube direct, and most of the others... it's by far the best.
