    Hello all just some questions about the aforementioned gadget.When the Led isn't on does that mean the amp I will be going through is the same or does it still work.And what are some good settings for a hi-fi tone.Think Dirk Lance!

    Cheers
    Mike

    with led off, you'll bypass the eq/tube emulation, but you'll still get a sound

    :confused: He answered your question. When the LED is off, the effect is bypassed. Meaning: off.

    hmmmm IME with the thing, I'm not really sure "Hi-FI" is really workable. The unit is more for adding distortion or a "tube grit" to the sound. What are you exactly looking to do with it?

    Yeah, hi-fi and the tube emulation are kind of opposites. Use the presence and sparing amounts of blend, that's the best I can think of.

    I agree with Tritone... the SABDDI isn't the best device to have for a hi-fi tone. Depends on your definition of hi-fi, though.

    I'm not familiar with the Dirk Lance tone. Even so, my recommendation for hi-fi tone would be to keep the Drive control completely minimized (fully counterclockwise), and use caution with the Presence control because that can add grit as well. Then set Blend, Treble, and Bass to taste.

    Or maybe try the Sansamp Acoustic Di instead.
