  1. Pricing aside, 128 presets vs 1 is meaningless unless you're happy with the overall tone. Nothing against SA, but that is an apples to oranges comparison. Those units are all digital whereas the PSA 2.0 is an all analog signal path. It's an entirely different technology. It's the same reason a modeler can claim to give you the sound of 100 different tube amps and dozens of effects for a fraction of the cost of the actual units. Whether it sounds "better" or just "close enough" is ultimately in the ear of the beholder. It's the better, cheaper more convenient argument. Pick two. 😉
  2. There was simply no room to add the XLR in the size format of the PSA 2.0 and it was also not needed. The concept for the pedal is for it to integrate on your pedalboard with all the effects you are already using. You can run pedals in front of the unit and time domain effects after it. It's best to have the DI come after your pedalboard if you need to go direct.
  3. We haven't really had any issues with control knobs being broken on the FlyRigs and dUg pedal etc. People have reported losing the knobs sometimes. The new PSA 2.0 is a pretty cool pedal, of course I'm a bit biased. I've messed with a proto here and at home and want to experiment with the midi aspect of the pedal when I get a chance.
  4. I really don't know how the pricing is structured in your area. There are so many variables. It's very different in the US.
  5. There is no room for a battery in that unit. Between the lights and the tuner you "might" get through a gig if you don't tune too much. When I used to do gigs with a multiple bands for a single event I would just bring an inexpensive 2 prong 10' extension cord in case power wasn't readily available at the front of the stage. Changing drummers takes more time than plugging in 1 extension cable unless you're talking about busking or something.
  6. It's best to contact your local dealer for pricing outside the US. We can't predict or dictate the price as there are too many variables has previously mentioned.
  7. You can use the Midi Mongoose with an expression pedal for certain CC messages but it will depend on the device. It's not set up to be a full featured controller like the Voodoo Labs Ground Control etc.
  8. Sounds like a good idea. I will pass it along to our design team.

    Thanks for posting your review. I was a little confused. Were you running the YYZ into the VT Bass or the VT Bass into the YYZ. Since they are both SansAmps with speaker emulation you might get a better idea of the tones by running the YYZ on its own. The Low and High do not change the amount of Drive available as they are both post SansAmp. There might be a perceived change as overdrive boosts the harmonic content and increasing highs with distortion will accentuate the effect. The mid control however is before the Drive and that will influence the amount of distortion.
  10. The Q\Strip is very capable as an analog speaker sim if set correctly. I'm not familiar with the other pedals you mentioned. For a speaker sim, it's best to use after any distortion producing pedals. You should obviously have the LPF engaged. You need to make sure everything is gain staged correctly as you could be getting fizz from overloading the interface. If you're running a number of pedals in series you want to set the gain structures so you have unity gain. Here is a video showing the Q\Strip as a speaker sim in action.
  11. When you use the external DI are you plugging your bass into the DI and sending the DI's through to the GK?
  12. Yes, but you should reply here first. TalkBass is 7 hours behind. 😀

    "Tight button to add definition to your notes in cleaner settings and make distorted tones snappier." A signature piece of gear doesn't mean that you will automatically sound like the artist it's associated with or it can only be used for one sound. With a stringed instrument there are way too many variables. As a player you have to consider the approach of anyone if you're trying to sound like them. For the artist it's a piece of gear that makes it easy for them to dial in their tone. They can probably obtain similar tones with other gear but it may require more work. In a piece like the dUg Ultra Bass 1000 that's a pretty unique amp. It was designed for dUg but it can work for a lot of people that may or may not necessarily want his tone.
