Planning to buy DT25 without pod hd
by pauliusmm on 2012-12-28 15:38:31

Is it a good idea to buy DT25 for a straight forward guitar -->amp setup? I could get a midi footswitch for more versatility.

Are there any DT25 users without pod hd?

I just ordered one and although I have the pod hd 500 the versatility of this amp on its own really sold me. I am a huge fan of some of the amps you can emulate. I love the Dr. Z emulation you can achieve through the latest software update. I think it's very clever on Line 6's part

I use a dt25 combo without the HD pedal. I use Boss analogue pedals. It sounds great. I used to have a HD300 but didn't get on with it. It didn't sound bad, I just wanted a what-you-see-is-what-you-get simplicity to my floorboard. I use the 'park' (voice ii) in pentode mode in class A and it rocks. All I use in front is a Boss Turbo screamer, a standard OD pedal from Boss and the Boss EQ pedal for a bit of extra drive when I need it and it sounds great. I'd highly recommend it. (And I've tried a lot of amps).

I love using my DT50 112 or my DT25 head with my old BOSS pedal board...I have an HD400 and an HD desktop...They have thier place, but I love using my old pedals...I have a couple of classics in that board...

GTR->NS-2->DS-1 (Clean Scream Mod)->FZ-5->DT input

DT Loop Send->BF-2->DM-3->DT Loop return

The BF-2 and DM-3 are made in japan and will never part with them...Sometimes change out the DS-1 or the FZ-5 for a Strymon OB.1

I use an old Peavy footswitch to change channels...

Sometimes I hook up my old 80s rig to both amps...10 space rack with ADA-MP1, SPX90s, SPX990 and dual Effectron 1024s...With the old ADA-MP1 and the DT power amps and a little midi control on the topography I basically have an analog modeling system...I love that setup, but it's way too big for me to carry around these days...getting too old...
