  1. Just seen this; sad, sad news. My VT2 Twin has not missed a gig in 10 years. Rest in peace, Dave.
  2. Looks good, but I'm still a fan of my Saw paint job
  3. [quote name='NancyJohnson' timestamp='1499700621' post='3333004'] I'd be interested in finding out if the unit can be run in mono or whether it requires a stereo poweramp. Anyone from Tech21 reading? [/quote] https://www.talkbass.com/threads/coming-soon-tech21-geddy-lee-signature-sansamp.1249586/page-9#post-20172331
  4. [quote name='Al Krow' timestamp='1498725273' post='3326535'] Cheers for that. Picking up on your final comment - is it just the battery that makes the PD "easier" or are there other features as well that make the DHA less user friendly / the PD more user friendly? (The battery point is not a particular concern for me as a I have Ciocks DC8 on my pedal board) [/quote] Yep, just the battery - the controls on the DHA are quite self explanatory. As for power, the PD would obviously be fine on your PSU but a [url="http://www.davehallamps.co.uk/VT1-EQ-Bass-Drive.pdf"]VT1[/url] needs 9-12v @ 600mA. E: - I am referring to the v1 PD, BTW - not tried the v2 (or the v2 BDDI). E II: - Just reread your OP - I think you should invest in getting one.
  5. [quote name='Al Krow' timestamp='1498675602' post='3326295'] Quite high praise if it's an always on pedal! Interested that you moved on the Paradriver but not VT2 - dunno if it's a fair Q, but how would you compare the two? [/quote] Valves sound better than valve emulation, but aren't really something you can chuck in yer gig bag. Dave had just released the VT2 and I had to have it, unfortunately at the expense of the PD. Add in the possibilities opened up by the gain stages of the VT2 and it's incredibly versatile, not to mention the kitchen drawer handle protecting the valves and the Saw paint job. Would I do the same again? No, I would get the VT2 and keep the PD, for the simplicity of those gigs where I don't need a pedalboard and chucking a pre and a tuner in a gig bag is the order of the day. Form vs function. VT2 is better, but PD is just easier. If Dave did ever make a battery valve pedal, I'd get it, if he doesn't, I'll get another PD 😃 /lotsofwords
  6. I've had a VT2 twin EQ bass years and I don't think I have ever turned it off. Blue channel on all the time, switch to red for more dirt. IMO, the Paradriver is a completely different animal to the BDDI and one of the few things I regret moving on. I'd like another just for the chuck in a gig bag simplicity.
  7. [quote name='Paulhauser' timestamp='1498412950' post='3324399'] I think Spector does it right on this one [url="http://s1277.photobucket.com/user/palpurnhauser/media/spector%20ns-2p_zpsft4rpywi.jpg.html"][/url] [/quote] None better.
  8. Can't listen to them since the quack played them during my last colonoscopy.
  9. Oops. I seem to have another Spector. Best bring it along.

  11. [quote name='JapanAxe' timestamp='1405429913' post='2501810'] You'd be surprised - what seems unexceptional to one person might be fascinating to another. Plus, people always like to compare, in which case the 'uninteresting' bass or amp becomes a handy bench-mark. Also I venture to suggest that [i]you[/i] are unique. These bash thingies are mainly about meeting people. So yes, please come if you can [/quote] Totally. Last one I attended, my beater P-bass was used to compare the amps. I only finished wiring it up that morning
