    Ok so as I understand it you can get wonderful tube sound from it. You can also get a overdriven sound from it. Are these sounds switchable say with that lil stomp button on the lower right hand corner of the unit? As in your playing clean and the dirty part of the song comes up and stomp...presto, overdrive!

    Well, yes, kinda. You can set it for crunch, then bypass it for the clean part. The problem is that you bypass the EQ section along with the drive section. The MXR M-80 might work better for you, because you can kick the disto section in and out while maintaining the same EQ.

    as Munji said, it's all or nothing.
     

  4. Yeah, but the sansamp sounds better than the mx80.

    I think Sansamp should make one like the MX80, with two channels.

    The Fulltone Bass Drive sounds better and has three levels: clean, overdrive, boost. You push the left button to get clean/effected, and you push the right button to get normal/boost. I use this for clean, same volume overdrive, louder volume distortion.

    I like it.

    I use the M80 because of it's two channel feature, if there was a 2 channel Sansamp I'd use that instead.
