Hi all, Instead of hijacking a couple of VT threads that are active right now, I thought I'd just start a new one asking for a little tone help from others who use or are familiar with the pedal. I run my VT pedal into the front of my Genz Benz Shuttle 9.0 and I either have the shuttle's EQ flat or sometimes with a bit of bass and treble boast. The settings on my VT pedal are: Level: 11:00 Mid: 1:00 Character: 11:00 Drive: 11:00 Bass: 1:00 Treble: 2:00 depending on the cabinet and/or the room, I sometimes turn down the treble as much as to 12:00. I'm basically happy with this sound with my passive jazz bass and P bass but it's a bit "clanky." Anybody have any ideas on how to get rid if the clank but still keep the bsic sound from these settings? Also, anybody use this pedal with an active bass? With my passive basses, it's tone heaven (or close to it) but with an active bass, IMHO, not so good.
