Preamp or DI for live performances


I need a good 4- or more channel preamp to use with house systems when I perform. Most of my venues are small, and I often do my own sound. I currently use acoustic guitars with Fishman blender and LR Baggs preamps going into the instrument channel of a Crate 125D, plus a vocal mic and the 3rd channel on the Crate (which is high impedance) for a foot-tap mic. I also have an acoustic/electric bass player with me at some gigs. To local gigs, I use the Crate essentially as a preamp/monitor and go out of the Crate into the house system. For travel, I would like to get something light that would accommodate the 4 channels I need (guitar/vocal/bass/foot-tap) and would serve as an input into house systems. Any suggestions?
