    had a chance to play a vt bass friday night and im just blown away!!

    ive had an ass load of drive pedals and this one is great!

    i never see much about these which is why i overlooked it.

    You never see much about it? It's only the most popular pedal on TB! But I guess since it's been out for a few years the excitement level has died down.

    There seems to be one for sale every week I really didn't care for it that much.

    VT Bass is kind of a big deal.....;) I think there were some mega threads on it and a member or ten wrote a sonnets professing their love...

    Seriously though it is a fantastic drive pedal.... if I ever get another one I'm going to have Mike Putnam mod it with a blend knob....

    I usually go out of my way to not hear about it on this board and still end up hearing more about this than any other pedal besides the B3K. Are you sure you're not just hanging around the Upright forums? Heck I'm sure they even end up talking about it over there too :D

    Probably the most valuable single pedal I have. Love the VT Bass!

    I use it more for my clean tone. When i want grit, which is most times, I run my BK3 into it.

    The Oxford is a close 2nd.

    Happy Holidays!

    Love the VT. I have two - one as a tone preamp and one for fuzz.
