I also have a PF500/115HE rig, and just picked up a VT Bass Deluxe from a fellow TBer. I am primarily interested in using the VTD as a DI, and as a front end for backlines so I can hope to get somewhat consistent tone from the mix of rigs that are supplied for backlines.
I am already pretty happy with the tone of the PF500/115HE, but have seen some posts lately from TBers who use the VT to front end the PF500.
The OP said he was not particularly happy with the PF500 (which I am) so, Audiodraggin, I am interested to know what you feel like the VT gives you in front of the PF500. Also, can you tell us how you used it .. straight into the PF500 pre section ? in the FX return (bypassing the PF500 preamp).
Let us know. Glad to hear you like the VT box, I am anxious to work with mine to get some settings dialed in and use it in a backline situation.
