Next Wednesday im planning to go to USA and I'm thinking on buying the Tech 21 VT bass and the Aphex Punch Factory. The thing is that I have the Sansamp Bass Driver DI, my question is, the VT bass and the BDDI are the same or do they have some major differences ?

From what I heard the vt is a ampeg svt head in a box basically if your amp is good and set right it will be likea svt

Well they're both made by the same company with the same sound in mind, so I would assume they'd be very similar.

Is the VT a preamp too? If not, that would be your difference there.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

Haven't they brought out a VT Deluxe with a D.I. out as well, or am I just imagining things?

There are some crossover tones in the two units. The main difference is that the Bass Driver DI has the DI functions as well as the SansAmp emulation circuitry. Both units can be used like traditional stomp boxes and can be used as preamps to drive a power amp or the power section of an amp with an effects loop. They are also very useful for going direct to the board.

In terms of tones the Bass Driver DI has a more modern scooped mids type of bass tone where the VT Bass is more vintage with Ampeg SVT and B15 type of sounds.

There are numerous video on YouTube. Here are a couple:
