I'm learning so much! So if I pull the switch, should I use full model amps on my Pod? Conversely, when the switch is in, should I use pre models? Or does that not matter?
I have never been a rule follower when it comes to music. If it sounds good, I roll with it.

doesn't matter... if you pull the switch the amp will internally use the full model, regardless of which one is selected in the pod.

Anyway, I ended up ordering a Dt25/Hd 500 and they should be here early next week.  I'll report back after I've had a chance to mess with them to give my comparison to a Vetta.  Ultimate test will be later this month when I have an outdoor gig and an indoor gig in the same day.  Hope I don't miss the global EQ too much.  Am I correct in my understanding that the master volume is the only "global EQ" parameter on my new rig, or is there an update to expand this?  If not, any tips to adjust tone to suit the venue that ya'll might have come across would be appreciated!

 

 

C.S. ... Congrats on ordering a DT25. Let us know what you think? I LOVE my DT25 head/cab. The available sonic combinations are fantastic. I also have a HD500 but I seem to prefer using the preamps in the amp.

If I remember correctly, the Vetta head had a 300w power amp section, just to be able to emulate the additional headroom a tube amp provides.  Didn't the combo have a 150w amp?

 

Oh, and yes, I think the switch from a Vetta to HD500/DTxx combo is worth it.  The modelling in the Vetta was great when it came out (it's still pretty good), but the quality of the newer stuff is a big improvement to me.
