I do not see what is so great about the Sansamp BDDI. I have had mine for years now (about 4) and other than a decent DI (although i prefer a mic'ed setup)I never found a good use for the unit. I see alot of people who own them and rave about all the great tones and distortion that you can get out of the box. I personally feel it colors the tone too much and I could never get anything close to a good distortion. The distortion just sounds like a blown speaker to me, maybe I have a faulty unit or I just never figured out exactly how to use the unit properly, but I've tried everything. Just want to know if anyone else had this view/problem (of a possible faulty unit), or maybe suggestions on settings where I could get a good sound that I might not have tried.
