So I was wondering with all the recent discussion here on Talkbass of the Eden WTDI, and past discussions of the Tone Hammer, Sadowsky Outboard Pre, etc. -Do any of these preamp/DI pedals sound decent when running parallel with a VTD? Are they redundant at all given the EQ control of the VT or do they add anything to the sound? Has anyone tried this? The scenarios would be A) recording: two channels with channel A having the Ampeg SVT/VT saturated bass grit thing and channel B just clean using one of the aforementioned pedals. B) live: VTD drives power amp (i.e. Drivecore) through channel A while one of the above pedals in discussion drives channel B either by itself or with the help of a booster. Personally, scenario A would be more realistic at this time for me, but I'm just curious. Any thought?
