Encounter of the 3rd

SofB, 05.03.2017
Why is my encounter with this VooDu Valve an encounter of the third kind? Because that is my third VooDu. And because the part does not exist. Nobody has it. For ages. I moved 3 years ago to the GSP1101, because I could not find any used VooDu more. Of new devices was not to dream. Occasionally single copies appeared in South German small shops, but then were then gladly times 1000 euro required. For 20 years old technology in its lowest possible reincarnation. Which has been a long time since the Rocktron product side disappeared.

I suspect that Thomann has bought somewhere a dusting camp of Anno Dunnemals somewhere, but the strange dust, which rides both on and in (!) Of the packaging foil. It is just a guess. I know something like this has happened with BCRich guitars last year. Suddenly in January 2016, the product line from the beginning of 2014 was cheaply squandered within a few days, after two years of distraction.

Anyway, I have a brand new VooDu Valve and grinse darob permanent like a honey cake horse. Because this is the best existing preamp out there. The pre-Eq can be used to get the most out of the pre-EQ, where the best preamps in the world (JMP-1, ENGL, Mesa, Sidewinder, Piranha, ADA) , Or via Speaker Sim also easily direct-to-desk. The Sim has been profitable for 20 years. It does exactly what the Red Box always wanted to do and what impulse responses meanwhile: Astrein sound without boxing. If yes, there are people who need modellers or even think that would have made it possible at all. No We've been doing it since the mid-nineties.

Any drawbacks with this nostalgia? Jau! My antique VooDu Online USA and my 10 year old VooDu Online Korea were largely identical, contrary to different network clichés also in the sound. This copy, however, obviously comes from quite different hands. Cheapest splitter plastic everywhere (jacks, pins, regulator, front) and then this Plexischeibe with the sticker behind it. This will blind in a short time and fade. Obendrein oblique screws. So thrashig dares not even Behringer. I do not dare to hope that this variant can also go on for 20 years. But it still sounds very good as expected. And now I have 3 years warranty :-)

You want a real analogue preamp with Hall, Chorus, Delay, Flanger, Compressor, WAH and the best Noisegate in the world HUSH? All full Midifahrig with the possibility to send phantom power to the stage edge? You want direct-to-desk well, and over a Peavey 6L6 power amp absolutely killer sound? You find, modellers are not yet so far and Dimebag has also used no tubes in his preamp? JMP-1 and ADAs will never get harder? Then use your temporary chance of a brand new VooDu Valve at half the price of origin.

Who has this here, seldom re-establishes. Most of the VooDu Valve users I met online or in Persona over the years are lifelong users, as well as myself. It is a mystery to me why this part has remained such an underdog. It is NOT a mystery to me why somebody said to have to build it again after 20 years. Thanks for that!
As soon as I catch all my old VooDu-Preset-Sounds with the Kemper, the Ampkarussel stands still here. Finally. Then the VooDu likes to hops again, these sounds do not escape me again ^ ^

Good but complex ...

Zeff, 23.06.2011
Always the problem of choosing the amp between combo, lamp, simulation ... in short many choices and always difficult to make his own.

I wanted something that sounds, offering an interesting sound palette and if possible that allows me to move easily according to the configs.
The voodu valve responds perfectly to all these criteria with a special mention for the amp simulation that is optimized at will.

One can reproach a lamp whose utility of the presence can ask question ... but the sound is hot and does not sound synthetic!

Attention this tool can be an absolute weapon but it takes a lot of time to understand it and to know how to optimize.
Too bad for a price a bit high for a techno all the same a little aging ....
