Just got a DT25

I just got my DT25 last week, and I am amazed by this amp!  I've had a POD HD500 for about a year and enjoy it, but connecting it to the DT25 is just a whole other level.  This amp is nicely oud!  I haven't turned it up beyond 3.  I have read this forum for awhile and I was concerned about getting a good tone.  I have to say the POD/DT combo worked right away for me.  I have uploaded my frrst attempts at tones here:

Cool! I love my 500 to DT25 Head rig too, but have done a lot of tweaking to get really happy with the head and good valve tone. Grandig, listen to your amp tone really come into divine territory with volume past half. It starts getting pretty loud, even at gigs I so I muted path B in the mixer which made patches in my 500 sound the same but a bit quieter allowing me to turn the head up Some more with very pleasing tone overall.

I looked at your posted patches and they're kinda simitar to some of mine, So I mentioned the above only as Something that might raise your satisfaction even more.

I noticed some of your patches utilise path A and path Band was curious why? I'm not suggesting its good or bad, right or wrong, I've just never been sure of what the mixer really does in relation to the' L6 Link to a single DT head.

Grats- the combination is a good one I think you will enjoy.

I tried making a set list of my patches with path B muted, and so far I am not hearing a difference.  I'll see when I get to rehearsal and can play at even better volume.  Thanks for the tip.

As for why some patches utlitzed Path B, that's just because they were POD patches that I just transferred to the DT25.  I took path B out in my new "mute B" setlist.

This amp sure likes to be loud.  I haven't played with LVM too much yet, but even with using full amps in combination with LVM it doesn't have the same kick.

I hope to have some video pretty soon, either of me demoing patches or from a rehearsal from this weekend.

Congrats, I love mine!

But, you might want to try out the amp without the HD500... After I did this, I tossed the HD500 in a closet and brought out my old pedalboard - much better! IMO, YMMV, etc.
