I've recently acquired a BVP5500. Sounds really nice, however I'm experiencing an issue when used with my distortion pedal, a DigiTech XBD Bass Driver.
Basically, the effect pedal has very little effect! I was using a Peavey combi previous to getting my own amp, so it's not an issue with the pedal itself. (Also using power adapter not a battery).
Level works (as expected), and the morph setting when turned up high has _some_ effect on the sound (though not as much as previously) , tone and blend changes don't have a noticable effect, and there's hardly any distortion in the sound. It's almost as if the amp is filtering the distortion out.
I got another cable and placed the pedal in the effects loop at the back instead of between bass and amp, but this did not appear to make a difference. I've also played around abit with the gain/valve driive and EQ settings.
Has anybody any hints?
