DHA VT2 Duel Custom Bass.

Recommended Posts

I apologise for my fuzzy phone pic.

The DHA VT2 Duel Custom Bass is a 2 channel OD/D pedal;
it uses two 12AX7EH preamp valves to produce a real crunch and to help you craft your ‘sound’ selectable Treble, Mid and Bass tone controls, gain controls for both valves, a boost switch that boosts the clean volume in the mix, a fat switch that boosts the low end, three selectable types of distortion (Valve, Silicon Diode and Germanium Diode) and a has a knob to filter channel 1 into 2 when channel 1+2 is selected.

I have used Ashdown’s Drive Plus and the Boss OD-3 but neither keep or boost the low end like the VT2 and with two valves creating that true valve crunch, I don’t think there are any pedals out there that come close for same money (£189.99).
At first I was a bit confused by all the controls but as I got used to the VT2’s settings I found a good number of usable tones.
The case is made from metal which feels very sturdy and the black with red splash finish that Dave did looks great. Oh and the power on light is a red l.e.d. behind the vales, which are viewable through 6 holes on the face of the pedal.

Overall I would say that if you are looking for a versatile bass overdrive/distortion pedal that keeps the low end, has an authentic sound and looks great then the VT2 Duel Custom won’t disappoint.

Dave Hall’s website [url="http://www.davehallamps.co.uk"]www.davehallamps.co.uk[/url] has sound bites of his pedals in a variety of settings if you want to hear them in action.

That looks sweet. I miss my old VT2. I see the power lead is on the side now. Are you powering it with the adaptor that Dave provides?

The trick is to have an input pad which all my bass effects and amps have.

Added my review too, but it wouldn't allow me to link to my soundclips in the reviews section (huh?) so I had to shove it in the effects thread instead!
