I’ve tried all that digital-processor stuff, but I like cheap pedals better. To me, the tone has more grit and balls. On the road I use a Boss ME50 that sounds great, but I have a few old pedals that I always go back to, like the Crybaby wah, DOD envelope filter, Electro-Harmonix stuff, and now the Pigtronix pedals. Of course, Moog pedals are also the bomb. As for amps, about 90 percent of the time I use a backline rental amp at wherever I’m playing.more
From a raunchy fat Les Paul through a Marshall...a Chick'n Pick'n Telecaster...to a smooth acoustic all from one processor. Along with some other random noisemakers...lol
As a series of individual stomp boxes with some overall tone shaping and whammy effects, this is a great unit. However, if you use it as a true multi-effects rig with banks and patches, there is a disappointing level of latency when switching between patches, which is exaggerated further when switching between manual / stomp box mode and multi-mode. My one has been through the wars, with support bands spilling nasty liquids all over it, and dropping it from great heights... It was badly damaged and out of action for years until someone recently managed to repair it. I was amazed that it came back to life at all, so kudos to BOSS for that. I'm now removing this from my rig, along with Line 6 Spider Valve 212 amp effects and a Line 6 M13, in favour of a BOSS GT-100 to "do it all" and simplify switching processes and reduce set-up times.
dials and stomp boxes for your pleasure. this pedal board has all the capabilities of direct in, mono, stereo, and midi ports. i dont use it to its full potential ..usually use the stomp box distortion for a sustain boost but i try not to rely on it. also for a digital board the peramiters of the expression pedal and wah really add a nice flavor. very user friendly. my favorite thing about this pedal is the fact that you can set it and leave it... you dont have to save pre sets (although there is a memory bank)
Great range of good sounding effects with proper knobs and dials to play around with - fantastic value for anyone starting out with guitar effects - had this for years and it till works and looks as if it's brand new. Using it more for home practice recently as I find it's a bit easy to switch in and out of memory / tuner mode in a live situation - but it's convenient to get out and use in a hurry
Awesome box of magic tricks. Great value for money. Could drop a house on it and it would still carry on as normal. BOSS rarely fail to deliver. Had this thing for over ten years and I'm still finding new sounds from it. Great piece of kit.
