I did for the heavier stuff and it shone! I’m using my amp’s built in drive these days with my Tone Hammer pedal providing a bit of extra grit- basically stacking the two as this seems to fit better for the more old school drive tones I’m gravitating. You’ll not need the DG comp with your Stella keeping everything in check for you surely?

The stellar Stella is also a VCA comp and got high praise indeed from Simon; but it's currently living on my home PB.

A bit like you I'm also going to be using the built in drive on my amp and the Hyperluminal comp is included "for free" so it will be rude for me not to use it! 😀  

Just glad that the AO drive is getting such unsolicited high praise from you as it just so happens to be the pre-amp drive stuck onto a pretty decent 900W power amp that's shortly making it's way over to East Landern, and is going to replace its predecessor DG M900 which has been my trusty engine-room for the past 18 months. You've defo got me looking forward more to this upgrade than I was 12 hours ago :)

Haha! You've rapidly taken the place of @lee650 as my biggest customer... who knows I may end up trading you it for a decent one-hand-carry112 cab in the near future 😁

Ahh so you bought the amp recently for sale. Great deal on that one. I’d have snapped that up too for that price. So does that mean the Stella is now for sale?

Agreed! Nope (my Mesa M6 doesn't have a built in comp so the Stella still has a place).

But there will be a vgc DG M900 v1 wending its way to the FS very shortly...and the B3K on that amp does work very well with Yammy PJs

(See what I just did there? Gave a forthcoming FS item a shameless plug Got things back on topic! ) 😁

I don’t think it’s got the HL comp built in but I’ve not seen the editor software to see parameters etc. Keep us posted maybe do a nad thread once you get it 😀

Ahh like a ‘best setting’ preset. Still worthy no doubt as most of use find one good comp setting and stick to it. It’s a great deal and I know you’ll enjoy it out with the band.

I was about to offer lending you my AO, but instead I see you have taken the nuclear option!

The AO amp has the growl/grunt (bass boost) and bite switches that were missing from the M900. A good thing as the M900 has the bass boost permanently on, which you don't really need when using a BB!

The BB414TRAV. A very tasty looking instrument indeed

They need to do this. In the same colours they’ve just done the new Sires in. 

LPB, Sherwood green, Burgundy mist...etc

Those colours are REALLY drawing me towards the Sires! 😍 Wish they did the burgundy with a maple board too though.

That would have been very kind of you dB. It seems to me that 'growl' & 'bite' are integral to the AO pedal and DG have simply imported the AOmicron features lock stock and barrel on the AO900. They don't appear on the DG M900 v2.

This has definitely become an official de-rail now - lol! Sorry!

I was telling you about the benefits of the AO pedal just a few weeks ago and sent you that demo video highlighting it's versatility. Still the better sounding of the DG pedal range IMO.

Back on topic!

Agree with hits. I liked the VMTD (first gen) but haven't got on with the other VMT pedals. Tried a AO earlier this year and went 'hmmmm.....'
