Tech 21 VT Bass
Analog pedal.
Simulation (es) amp (s) lamps very clever.

UTILIZATION

30 seconds to find the sound (and not just any)
The three EQ pots very very musical (I'm all settings on my amp in neutral and I serve as the VT Bass).
Manual is clear.
The only flaws - the position of the switch: a little too ready pots (so you have to do a little attention and not to jump on the pedal like crazy and with the heavy shoes) - the entry position of external power supply is on side as the output jack (I would have preferred position as standard on most pedals, ais I cobbled together an extension cable so it goes for me).

SOUND QUALITY

Oh the sound! ... This is the one I sought.
Full of sound (early rock) type Ampeg - it certainly will not replace the real Ampeg amp but it sounds really good. Super very typical grain (I love) ranging from subtle to heavy saturation overdrive / distortion. It strongly colors the true sound of the guitar (so he must love). It compresses the sound a lot without losing the attack. I do not separate over this little box. I play a fretless Sandberg California V passive mode and then sending it!
I much prefer to the VT Bass Bass Multidrive BSE or DI / MXR distortion of I as well.

OVERALL OPINION

Extremely happy with my choice.
I work at home and I serve as DI.
In the room to repeat the bass amp is pretty rotten, and VT Bass participates fully in the "reincarnation" by removing the side "boiled" sound.
Not given in terms of price, but ... I do not take more Behringer ...
Bravo Tech 21 for this little box-boi, I advice those who want to rock it.

Tech 21 VT Bass
Pedal that can both serve as preamp or / and effects pedal. It seems the good old analog circuit and it takes the SansAmp that made the reputation of the mark. Connectivity is standard (in / out ... you should be fine right?). To be placed either before the amp or the effects loop. Using it as a preamp, I put my head before pourrave Warwick, I cut the preamp of the amp (you follow me) and I use to color my sound corny.
It must follow a Ampeg SVT but then forgetting right away and take what is good in what comes out of the contraption because it's very good. This is not a new gadget to modeling (beurk!).

UTILIZATION

The config is simple (3-band EQ, level, character and drive) and can have fun with the possibilities. When you fall on the sound can not touch anything and that's it. Sounds.

SOUND QUALITY

Ideal for rescuing an old ruin amp, giving grain to the transistors or thicken the sound of your amp cool stuff without resorting to ugly style ODB-3 that make the slurry. Owl box also as direct connection, despite the limited ... and we do not screw up the back with a three-body when recording. Also useful when you want to go directly to the PA for a small concert, even large rock.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought the states a month ago. It's a nice tool very similar to the SansAmp Classic that I use with a group of stoner. Plus: 3-band equalizer and the ability to play with the controls and drive caracter to refine the input overdrive. However I find the sound of the classic SansAmp fatter. The VT Bass is used for projects more classic rock. The amp is connected to which these two pedals is important to try. The two are complementary, but can not play along because the level of output and 3 times higher on the VT Bass. Anyway, again, I would do the same choice for the good old rock as you love so well, bassist friend.

Tech 21 VT Bass
New set of tech 21, "Character series" which are designed to simulate the sound of famous amps each. it is an Ampeg bass amp simulation
-Input, Output
Alim-9V DC
A hyper-switch tech silent 21
-5 Knobs: Level, Low, Mid, High, Character and Drive

UTILIZATION

Operation is simple, the knobs are very precise and offer many possibilities. the switch is nice.

SOUND QUALITY

I use this pedal with a Precision bass on a standard Mexican Fender Rumble 100.
This pedal is intended to warm the cold of his fender too.
The sound is really good ... we get a warm clean sound with a nice grain ampeg typed, you can also pick up sounds more modern, punk, it sounds like hell!
Then, by gently pushing the character and drive, we arrive at a slight overdrive typed, it sounds! distos the same as the vintage tube, then if you push again, we arrive at a big distortion very heavy, and super aggressive: a treat!

OVERALL OPINION

Was purchased for € 100 zzounds (I took a trip to Chicago to retrieve the pedal because zzounds does not export outside the US)
and I'm happy! She does a good job!
but I think it can sound 100x better xur another amp, and with the higher volume (I could not test it other than in my room at low volume, and when the volume is pushed, the biblos vibrate and etc. it's bad ...) I would see repeating, it'll sound of thunder!
