Just got my Bass V-Amp Pro in today from Music123.com . I haven't hooked it up yet but I have to say it is more solidly built than I expected. I plan to use it as a preamp with no other devices. Probably only use the tone controls, amp emulation, compressor, denoiser, and crossover. I wish it allowed you to independently select the "tone stack" from the "power output stage" but I suspect the SVT emulation (if done well) will be good enough for what I'm looking to get out of it. Anybody else got theirs in yet?
