Tech21 VT Bass DI

28.10.2014
Ok, heres my review -

Firstly the service from Thomann - great price and prompt despatch although it seems that DHL got my address wrong and i had to hunt around to find where my new toy had been delivered to. Not Thomanns fault and they were quick to offer assistance when i first thought it had gone missing.

Now the VT Bass DI - good packaging and the product feels well made. Its lighter than i thought it would be but still feels tough. I bought this after trying a Behringer BDI21 as a cheap Ampeg simulator. I was impressed with that product so thought i wouod invest in the Tech21. It has more tweakability due to the mid control and the character knob. With the character knob left of midday it sounds like an SVT, midday is sort of B15 and right of midday starts getting thinner. If i have the gain past about 9pm it starts breaking up the sound and the character and mid knobs really change the sound. I like it clean and fat so have settled on character around 9pm, gain at the same and mid backed a little off from 12pm. You can use it as a dedicated preamp into a power amp or effects return by engaging the little boost button. The speaker simulator button tightens up the sound even further and the bright button gets a real rasp going on if you like that sort of thing (you can back off the treble to tame it)
Great product, really pleased with it as an always on effect.

A real wonder box!

08.03.2015
After a few weeks of recordings, gigs and rehearsals, I can honestly say: this is a very serious bass tool.

I use it in gigs as a direct box - on bypass, it delivers a very high quality direct signal, which is cool. But the true wow moment is when it's on. The majority of the gigs are played with no amp, monitored with in ears. What this box does to my tone is unbelievable. With the character knob between 9 and 11 o'clock and speaker simulator engaged, the high frequencies never sound metallic or clicky. The low end is huge, up to the point they need to be cut with the EQ. The drive adds more character, and together they deliver a huge tone. Fingers, pick, thumb, slap, it all sound much much better than a simple direct signal. This box does exactly what it's designed to do, and nothing less.

In recordings, I use it as an overdrive, in parallel to the clean signal. With the character knob turned above 2 o'clock, it delivers a real bad ass drive, which is very dynamic, touch sensitive and rich in harmonics. it's recommended to blend in the dry signal in that application, simply because the lows decrease dramatically with the character knob beyond the 12 o'clock position.

In rehearsals, I use it as a preamp, in any room that has an amp that I don't like its tone. I just connect it to the power amp input - and suddenly I don't hate the tone! If the room has a good amp (such Mesa Boogie/Ampeg all tube classics), I use the box as an extra drive, blended with the dry signal.

If I want a more "vintagey" sound for things like old school funk etc. the character knob just above the 12 o'clock position and a healthy amount of drive gets me there very quickly.

It's hard to believe how versatile this box is.

I never leave home without it.
