Working with the different inputs and channels (including bridging them) gives a huge array of tonal options, even with my trusty-if-not-boring P-bass. Not as loud as the SVT Classic in terms of pure decibel output, but the SVT-VR certainly has a more organic feel and way, way more overdrive. And it's certainly more than loud enough.
