    Thanks fellas!

    I definitely wasn’t being hyperbolic: @tech21nyc has made some great gear over the years, and I’ve owned a lot of it, but this is the cream of the crop :cool:

    The Deep side is fairly heavily processed: it is much thicker and darker sounding than the original source tone and blends very well with the Drive side.

    Does someone know how the deep channel alone sounds VS a clean bypassed signal ?
    Boost in low end, treble tamed and some compression tube like clean ? Maybe ?

    Exactly how I’d describe it: much deeper and darker than bypassed, a bit less transient spiked as well.

    As requested: YYZ bypassed and YYZ engaged comparison clips, both with and without drums for context :thumbsup:

  6. My Alpha Omega is going nowhere, but I wonder if this will send my X packing(I use it basically as a brightener/old string rejuvenator).

    My beloved Oxford sits in a drawer as the X has kicked *it* off my amp.

    And again, I love the Farewell to Kings/Hemispheres Ric era and the cool green colors that match my room. XD

    It doesn't need a blend since the 'deep' channel is effectively your clean channel. Sure sweepable mids would be a nice addition, but hardly a deal breaker. Soundclips, rather than a spec sheet, are making me prefer the YYZ here, by far!

    If this sells well it might be a future possibility. It went that way with the VT Bass, producing deluxe and then DI versions sure to popular demand!

    Tech 21 seems to have always done a solid job of meeting market demand: true of the VT bass iterations, the original sansamp and BDDI, the DUG and Geddy rack to pedal transitions, etc.

    I certainly prefer additional tone shaping when I can get it as well, but simplicity is also a blessing: with the Q strip or OCS Mini always on my board I already have the HPF/LPF filtering I need as well as ll the sweepable mids anyone could ever want ;)

    Sounds great man! Most of the NAMM videos had me nervous that the highs were way to "bitey", but you have basically crushed that fear.

    Thoughts on this vs the X7?

    Well if THAT isn't the question of the hour...

    Both are excellent and very versatile.

    I used both on this last arena tour run I just did, and found myself favoring the YYZ by the end of it: more midrange and the character of the drive seemed to sit in the mix of this particular band better without either getting lost or being overwhelming.

    That said the X7 is definitely not going anywhere and I’m sure there will be certain things it’s clealry the better choice for, just as the DP-3X will be.

    We truly live in the Golden Era of Bass Gear :cool:

    That was excellent. Really nice bite to the bass tone.

    Thanks, the YYZ pedal can go from nasty to mellow and anywhere in between!
