The Deluxe version of the SansAmp VT Bass features a combination of a warm, all-analog signal path and convenient digital recall. There are 6 program locations and dual inputs for two instruments to be on-line, ready to go. Create three custom tones for each input or use all six locations for a single instrument. And you can program the FX loop to engage your favorite effect each time a so-designated preset is selected. Super simple to operate, changes can easily be made on the fly --without having to refer to the owners manual. You just turn the knobs to a setting you like, double click on a footswitch and its saved in that channel. You can custom tweak and program six of your personal sounds, from vintage clean to gnarly overdrive to crushing distortion.

The VT Deluxe aims to emulate the classic Ampeg bass amp sounds. I've never owned an Ampeg amp, so I can't comment on how well it does that job, but this is an excellent DI box with a wide range of sounds and up to 6 programmable presets. It's built like a tank, is completely analog, and it sounds great. Like I mentioned, you can use one bass and assign all 6 presets (2 banks x 3 presets each) to it, or as I do, use two basses (can be plugged simultaneously in Input A and Input B, as during gigs for example) and they each have 3 presets. I use a Rickenbacker 4003 JG bass and an Ibanez SDGR 5-string, which each have their own characteristics as well as different gain output (one is passive, one is active). I've got it set up so that the gain is pretty uniform across presets and across basses. Love the tone it gives me... especially that midrange growl Ampeg's are known for.
