Best Sound I've Heard
by Barry from FloridaHonestly, this predal/preamp is the best money I've spent on bass gear yet. I've only ever messed with the tone controls on my bass and amp, never even considered a preamp. However, after reading some... read more [+] reviews and the help of a Sweetwater technician, I decided to try out this amazing gizmo. MY rig has never sounded so good. I managed to get the tone of Justin Chancellor (Tool) and Dean Bernardini (Chevelle) something I've always strived for but, never really fully achieved. I also tweaked some sick, nasty distortion on this thing, making my old boss bass distortion look amateur. I highly recommend this preamp to any and all bass players. You'll never hear a better sound or tone. close [-]

tech 21 character series vt bass deluxe rocks.
by George Hoppenstedt from Evansville INI dig this pedal. Straight into the PA or as a pre-amp for any amplifier I plug into. I've always heard great things about Tech 21 gear & now I know why. 6 presets to program & the pedal recalls wher... read more [+]e I've set the analog knovs (no tap-tap or need to use the manual to figure out programming). The tone you get from this thing is great for the money spent. close [-]

What a Sound
by Tooter from Bandera TexasI originally ordered this so I could use it with live shows. Getting a tone better than something just off the guitar tone. I use it in the studio to.

by Tempest H. from Brooklyn, nyI bought this after reading stellar reviews. I was looking for something to add a little dirt without being obnoxious. This pedal basically never gets turned off. It does clean all the way to raging f... read more [+]uzz without losing bottom end. It's super easy to tweak on the fly. It's built like a tank. It basically took my bass sound, which I already liked and made it sound boring in comparison. close [-]

I got interested in this when I heard rave reviews of the VT Bass, but figured I didn't need another overdrive pedal. With 6 p... read more [+]resets, effects loop and DI, this became a must-have. It does everything you think it does, and I've dialed in 6 really usable tones, from light, transparent overdrive, scooped metal, tone-destroying fuzz, etc. Also, any preset "remembers" whether the effects loop was on the last time you used it. This cuts down on tap-dancing for live use, since you can just set it up so when you switch to a new setting, you automatically get your phaser/filter/whatever. Also, when you're messing with a saved preset, the light flashes to tell you how far you've turned a knob away from where it's saved. This is a huge help for experimenting. THe knobs are very reactive, and a little drive goes a long way.
All in all, I'm so glad I bought this, and it's replaced 3 pedals on my board, and re-organized it nicely. close [-]
