Just got my VT Bass V2 today. I've been playing with it for the last hour or so. I like it so far but I can't say that I'm satisfied yet. I am using a Epiphone EBM-4 bass tuned to A# F A# D. Bass has active P/J pickups. Going into a Kustom DE300 head and Kustom Groove 8x10 cab. I like the sound I get straight in already. Was wanting a bit more growl though. I will be getting a Boss ODB-3 within the next day or so also for the heavy stuff. Are you VT users generally using active or passive pickups? Or does it even make a difference? Humbuckers or Singles? I can get a real nice sound straight into the amp(-6db input) with the boost knob on the bass all the way up. With the VT Bass on, I have to turn the Boost knob on the guitar to 50% otherwise it's too boomy. With the Boost knob down to 50% it also sounds better going into the normal input on the amp. Just wondering what you guys are using with yours. I'm going to try to borrow a Fender Jazz bass to compare.
