I used the DJX to control an Akai Vintage Synth module I had on an extended loan but unfortunately the module's owner wanted it back. I liked using the DJX's rhythm accompaniments to control the synth module, got some interesting results.

I use mine to control the EMU Vintage Keys module:

Yamaha DJX + EMU Vintage Keys = Mellotron

Well, almost...

Heh, guess you're into playing the kinda stuff I am, judging from the gear.
I hated the AVT series, the older Valvestates that came before them actually sounded way better, I don't get how Marshall managed to make an "improved" version sound worse.
To be fair, the AVT has good clean tones, but for me who needs a good metal tone, it's non existent.
They would be better for more classic tones I guess, not for modern tone guys like myselfTongue
Give one of the Valvestate 8100 amps a go if you can find one, so raw and unprocessed sounding compared to the AVT's distortion.
The JVM series that came out 2 years ago are amazing though, but granted they cost 2 times what the AVT did, seem to cover everything from remarkably clean clean tones, to modern day death metal in one box, amazing stuff.

How's that Tech 21 British pedal? Use it to overdrive preamps of amps or for the distortion itself in the pedal?

I don't use too much distortion (about halfway on the Marshall's OD1 channel) and I find the AVT is perfect for my needs (it sounds particularly good with my Telecaster). I'm more of a classic rock / punk / indie guitarist than a metaller.
 
I haven't really explored the full potential of the Tech 21 pedal yet. I've used it as an overdrive with pretty good results but I really want to try recording with it straight into my Korg D8 to compare it with the Zoom's digital modelling. Need to get the "studio" sorted out first!

Well I can see how the AVT  works for your needs thenSmile
I'm interested to hear how the Tech 21 is when you unlock a bit more of it's potential.
Tech 21 products are getting a good reputation it seems.

Updated list:

Basses:
Fender Classic 60's FSR Jazz Bass (blows American Vintage out of the water. Seriously)
Fender Jazz Bass Special (Made in Japan, mid 80's. Amazing tone and playability)
Peavey Millennium 4 (the old version, US made. Very fine instrument, great preamp. Not to be confused with the current import BXP)

Guitars:
Epiphone G-400 (traded it with a friend for another old Epiphone I had. It's in a pretty messy state but is perfectly playable and sounds good)
Amada 4870 (Czech made classical guitar. Very pretty, sounds good)
Daion Year series The '78 Century (Beautiful steel string acoustic by this undeservedly forgotten Japanese brand)

Amps:
Acoustic 220 head with Acoustic 402 2x15" cabinet
Peavey Basic 60 combo

A newcomer to the family:

Casio CTK-900 keyboard. Seems like a nice toy.
