I recently picked up a used ( thanks Paul! ) Sansamp Acoustic DI from the garage sale. I bought it with the intention of using it for a few live gigs ( duo ) I'll be doing with a singer/songwriter buddy of mine. While playing around with it, I came across the sample settings in the manual. I followed one for electric. I plugged my tele into it and then ran the output into the effects return ( as recommended by the manual to bypass the pre-amp tone controls ) on my Roland Blues Cube. The setting is labled as "semi-dirty". The resulting tone is very, very cool. With some reverb and a touch of delay, it's very close to the Robbin Ford / Stevie Ray / Hendrix clean/ dirty rythm tone....think Riviera Paradise, Little Wing, Lenny. Very bluesy. Sweet yet spanky. Dig in a bit harder on the strings and it get's a cool, compressed, edgier tone. This may be old news to all of the sansamp users out there, but since I have never used ( let alone tried ) one before, and was very pleasantly surprised. Have you sansamp users out there had similar experiences? What settings do you like? Do you run it straight into the amp/board or use the effects loop? I ask because I seldom hear mention of the the tech 21 products here, other than the occasional Trademark 10. I've always been interested in the Trademark 60 and the sansamp PSA as the reviews are pretty much thumbs up. What do my TDRI brethren think about these products?? Good, bad, indifferent? Thanks in advance for your response.
