Im looking for a distortion pedal to go with my Rickenbacker basses and GK 700 RBII amp. I'm wanting some easily dialed in distortion. I've had the Sansamp BDDI,,the RBI, and the RPM, the later being the best of the bunch. I want to try the VT pedal due to all of the positive feedback the TB members have posted, but I have had problems with the "mid scoop" that all the other Sansamp products seem to have. Is this a problem with the VT? Also I've been looking at the MXR M80, it also has its loyal fan base, and doubles as a pretty good DI I've heard. So what is the general consesus of these two products? Is one better than the other? Or is it apples and oranges?
