I just noticed it, very nice feature.

I haven´t tried the B7K or Vintage, only the B3K, and I liked my Sansamp more.

Long time no see :)

I got SansAmp BDDI2 some 7 months ago.
Thumb BO BN6 got quite better with this piece of equipment: Ordinary (no bassist) people started to ask me what bass am I playing and arguing that it sounds so great :)
If I can put it this way, Warwick sounds furious with this piece of metal. It took me few months to set it, but now it sounds furious like my old StingRay and still it is unique Warwick growling sound.
I couldn't be more satisfied with this preamp.

I used to own it (the deluxe version with the two channels). I liked it a lot but was kind of disappointed with the quality of the foot switches. They used to fail on me all the time and I had to replace them. Perhaps I stomped on it too hard. How has yours been durability-wise?

Well, this man "davidsinrocks" (YouTube player) made me buy this one. I met him and found that his basses ain't so good at all if not plugged in BDDI deluxe. His Verona jazz bass sounds magnificent with BDDI deluxe and not good at all without it.

And David himself told me not to buy deluxe, he had some reasons.
So, no problems at all with the device so far..
The other important point, maby more important for this matter: It stays always turned on, I touch foot switch only before and after the show/rehearsal.

Although he used to change basses during the show, passive Verona jazz and active StingRay, he used the same setting for both (not logic from my point of view but it is true). Nor he ever used dual input for holding both instruments online.
So, his advice was to go for no deluxe version.

No issues with the quality of the foot switches.
And mine reason is- no version 2 for Deluxe, still. And version 2 has some good improvements.
