    Hey everyone. I'm running an Acoustic 450 through an Ampeg Classic 810. My issue is that I'm trying to replicate the punchiness of the Classic SVT, but using a Tech 21 Sansamp Classic (mainly to try and get that tone). I know this can be done, but I'm having trouble figuring it out. Does anyone have any idea what my EQ/Tone knobs on the Acoustic should be set at, as well as any hints as to how I could use the Sansamp to get the roundness? I've looked at the manual and whatnot, and it only took me so far.

    I've tried a lot of Sansamp stuff and have never been satisfied with any of it until I tried the VT Bass pedal. If you want a pseudo-SVT rig, ditch the Sansamp Classic and get a VT. The Classic is more of a guitar pedal anyway. But the VT nails classic Ampeg tones like no other non-tube device I've ever heard. Pedal of the future.

    I keep seeing your raving posts about this pedal, and you're making me want to pull the trigger on one! Stop it! :D

    Hey, at least I'm not raving about a pedal that costs $1000.
