800 rig for metal

Hey guys,

So im here on behalf of the bassist in my band.

Hes just about to buy himself an Ibanez SR705.

but he now has GAS and has 800 for a head, cab and pedals/DIs

I dont really know much about bass gear apart from the top end Ampegs.
so i thought i would come here for some advice.

Budget: 800
Genre: Metal, Metalcore, Djent, Jazz, funk, classical.
Location: London
used/new: either
Current gear: Squire j-bass, boss bass OD.

Thanks

sansamp BDDI. top notch piece of kit. when i was in a gigging metal band, i used to just DI straight into the front of house - partly due to spending all my money on other crazy pedals - microsynth - and partly down to not wanting to haul an amp and cab on public transport most of the time. never let me down, still on the same battery it came with as well. should have probably got a proper pedalboard and power supply..
second hand is worth looking through, you can get some incredible prices on pretty high end gear. as for actual brands, i've not really bothered with one as of yet so i'm probably not as clued up as other members of this forum.

EDIT: the sansamp is about 200 which will eat into the amp budget, so if that does become a concern behringer do a copy for about 40 which a lot of people rave about. i think its a bit naff looking though

Alternatively, there's the DHA VT1 bass drive/eq which is also a DI box/preamp, but is valve based. You can dial in some awesome grit with it, plus it comes in cheaper than the Sansamp and is handbuilt in the UK. If you're playing gigs where you have a PA, this kind of item is brilliant.
