MicroBII vs. V5


Jr. Deluxe

Recommended Posts

.....through a Vent. I'm not talking about the onboard chorus or leslie effects on the voce's, just mainly the drawbar tones.

 

I have a MicroBII that i use as a backup and in a "blues jam" rig. I wonder if the V5 would be a significant tonal improvement or if the Micro's presets cover all of the bases.

The V5+ would be an improvement over the MicroBII. Not sure how to define significant but lets just say that if you can pick up a V5+ for $400-450 I wouldn't hesitate to pick one up even if I owned the MicroBII. Here is a Diversi DV (the V5+ is the engine of the Diversi DV) with a 122 leslie. This sounds nearly identical to my V5+/Vent combination. Draw your own conclusion:

You are asking us to compare 2 technologies that are pretty outdated. Consider one of those $300 V-Machines and run VB-3 on it.

 

You will have state of the art sound.
