Bass DI with EQ, pad, ground lift and more.

Have you ever arrived at a venue or a studio assuming there would be a decent quality DI? It doesn't always work out that way. For the pro on the go, the VT Bass DI covers a lot of ground in a small footprint. This multi-function, multi-application format features three different outputs. You can complement your current rig, record direct, drive power amps and go direct to the PA. Just throw it in your gig bag and you’re ready at a moment’s notice.

Like its sibling, the original VT Bass, you can get the same legendary tower of power tone pumping through a stack of 10-inchers. This is for players who enjoy being heard. From chunky funk with the ubiquitous flip top, to the higher gain growl of indie rock. The VT Bass DI incorporates a Blend control to adjust the ratio of direct signal and SansAmp circuitry, and a Bite switch to engage a presence boost and a subsonic filter.

With the VT Bass DI, you can go from clean SVT®-style thump to dirty earthquaking rump. No matter which way you dial it in, it all sounds massive.

Features

  • Emulations of classic bass rigs
  • Blend control for direct versus processed sound
  • Rugged build quality

    Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series VT Bass DI:

    I bought this to use with my Fender Precision 4 string Bass. It definitely adds some punch and character to the sound of this bass. However, I also tried using it with my Spector Euro LX 5 string bass -- which has active EMG pickups. Together with the active pickups, this pedal is overkill and the active pickups already have great tone, punch & character. So, in my opinion, for a bass with active pickups, this pedal is unnecessary and overpowers the sound. For a non active pickup Bass, it's a valuable asset.

    Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series VT Bass DI:

    If you are after the Ampeg SVT sound and don't want to lug around an 80 lb. head, get one of these. I am using this with a LittleMark Tube 800 and an SVT-HLF cab. I previously had the VT Bass v1, and as other reviews I have read stated, that one was a little "clicky". That problem seems to have gone away with this one. I power this thing with phantom power with an XLR cable from my amp. Saves me having to use batteries or lug around an adapter. The adjustments are very sensitive. May take a little time to find the sound you are after. I am very happy with this unit.
