First post...(sorry it's a bit winded!!!!) I've been playing an Ampeg SVT 3-PRO through a Ampeg 4x10 classic cabinet for over 5 years now. I LOVE the sound but recently decided to dive into the world of Bass PODxt figuring that's all I would need to bring to gigs. I play in a rock cover band and a heavier original band and play live at least a couple times a month. It has been extremely hard for me to get used to the POD. The tones are decent (still doing some tweaking), but I feel disconnected from my sound. Almost like there is a microsecond delay between what I am playing and what I hear. I also seem to have a hard time dialing in a perfect tone through the PA where through my amp/cab was great. I am not giving up yet. Anybody else have an opinion on this??
