Oh I am so getting one of these when ordering opens up again.
I just got my shipping notice! Psyched!!!!!
Alright, everything was dropped off at the post office about two hours ago. I'm excited to hear what everyone thinks when they get a chance to try them out, as I am first of all biased as to their quality, and second of all a pretty mediocre bassist that can't really put things through the paces.
Also, it turns out SBVT is just barely too heavy to send first class, so you all got free priority mail upgrades
I'll post a review after I get mine. Also, if folks are interested, I can do a comparison with the ME Super 300, which imo is currently the best SVT preamp pedal on the market (it was a big factor in me selling my rack SVT preamp).
Ooh nice I can't wait to hear that demo and comparison
Have a question for those who may know.
I have two tube amps with a Fender tone stack, a Fender Super Bassman, and an Ashdown LB30.
I have a PAX, and when I place all the tone knobs to “0”, I still get a signal to pass. This is opposite of my tube amps with the Fender tone stack. At “0” on the tube amps no signal passes.
Is this normal for the PAX to pass a signal with all tone knobs set to 0?
Same observation with mine.
@FronTowardEnemy & @Roxbororob I wanted to bring up the same question about the tone stack after spending time dialing in my new to me PA and having the same observation.
It didn't used to do that, that was a modification I added around version 3 or so of the Particle Accelerator. I had seen it done in other preamps (most notably Soldano) and people refer to it as a "bass floor" and "gain floor". On the very first version of the PA if either the gain or bass were turned all the way down there would be no signal passing, but there were some cases where it would squeal. So I set a minimum value for bass and gain that would allow a small amount of signal to pass to prevent oscillation.
Thank you for the explanation.
I was just curious about it, the pedal itself is glorious.
I recently got a PAX (11/20 dated) and love it, but I am curious if the gain control is a negative feedback design, it crackles when adjusted. My Slammpegg B PreX arrives today.
Well, I can't promise audio because that involves more work lol. I also have a Helix LT on the way, I'll plan on comparing that as well (SVT patch of course). Too bad I don't have an actual SVT anymore ...
It isn't, I honestly have no idea why it crackles. I've tried a few fixes as I've had people ask about it (my personal PAX crackles as well) and none of them have gotten rid of it. I was wondering if maybe the gain floor was affecting it, but the Black Eye has the same gain floor and it doesn't crackle. The weirdest thing is that the original PA gain control didn't crackle, and the only thing that changed between the two designs was the tube. So I wish I had answers on that one, but I unfortunately do not.
It's weird - mine crackled at first, but doesn't anymore.
Well that makes me even more confused, but good to know.
I like these pedals! SBVT next. Maybe a Deep Dish too.
Statistically speaking the most commonly ordered pedal has been a matte black Slampegg. Just thought everyone should know.
Mine is raw. Does that make me a sociopath? Or is it all the other stuff and the pedal is just incidental?
