Anyone who has tried to get the SVT sound with a pedal is probably familiar with the VT Bass pedal from sansamp. In my dealings with it, it gets pretty close to the real deal. However, the incorrect EQ frequencies, very vanilla speaker simulation, and harsh bite switch make it fall just short of “holy sh*t!” levels of excellence for my very picky ears. Enter the Two Notes Torpedo Cab M. For the unacquainted, it’s a cab sim/IR loader with power amp simulation. On its own, it gets a convincing tube amp sound. You can select KT88 tubes which are very close to and arguably better than the 6550s used in SVTs. You can “push the tubes” to get a little grit, and coupled with the 410 SVT cab IR, you’d have a hard time discerning that it’s a digital setup. However, coupled with the VT Bass DI, you essentially have an Ampeg at your feet. Turning the bite and speaker sim switches off on the VT gives you a near perfect SVT overdrive and character when run into the 410 IR, and creating a custom eq on the Cab M using the frequencies found on svt front panels lets you to further refine the sound and allows for better tweakability than the VT DI does. You can even replicate the effect of the Ultra Hi and Ultra Lo buttons. I leave the power amp sim off when using the VT, so you can certainly achieve this sound with another cab sim and separate programmable eq. This is by no means a corporate or paid endorsement of these companies, I just like that the torpedo has everything built in. Hopefully this has been helpful to those who are on a quest to get that classic grunty sound! I’ll continue to experiment and drop any findings in this thread.
