    what do you mean by wiring your sabbdi? Do you mean where should it go in your signal chain i.e. in front of amp?

    Also, what are you trying to achieve and that'll help us to help you

    where is the best place to put it

    I've heard in the power amp or preamp input I can't remember
    place it like a regular pedal


    and basically I just want my tone to sound like god himself

    Place it like a regular pedal in front of preamp input, last spot in your signal chain.

    As to the sounds, with an ampeg 8x10 and an ampeg svt 4pro I'd think you'd sound like the sound of god already.

    Did you go through the examples in the manual and find any that sounded like what you want? If that's the case, why not start there and adjust until you get the sound you want? It's not just a plug in and forget it type of pedal, you'll have to do work to get the sound you want. But if you don't specifically know what you want to do with your sound, it's tough to help you.

    The way I plug it is..

    Bass -> Sansamp BDDI -> Amp input.

    Then I tweak the setting on my Sansamp.
