Andy Summers talks about this one in this Boss interview. He says, "I’m very happy to say my main thing that I’ve been using is the VG-99—it’s killer. It’s so good. I mean, it’s the best [modeling processor] anyone’s ever made, as far as I’m concerned, of the ones I’ve tried. You know, I’m standing in front of my recording desk, and I’ve got all my amps out there, and I always go through this guilt trip like, 'Oh my God, I better go and plug in an amp.' And then I end up plugging in the bloody VG-99. [Laughs.] It’s so good. You get it out through the speakers, you know, it’s great."more
I play through a Roland VG-99 and some Keeley pedals I keep on the side, like fuzz, delay, and compressor. The VG-99 is great because it has a million effects built in. I can sit there and create a bunch of my own patches, so I can have the perfect rhythm sound, the perfect Jimi Hendrix sound, and a perfect backward tape sound at the flip of a button."more
"No, I actually play Becker guitars. They build my Roland [GK-3 Divided Pickup] right into the guitar for me, so my Roland [VG-99 and FC-300] system is seamlessly integrated. It makes it so easy for me to run the Roland system. It’s literally plug and go. It’s really a wonderful piece—the guitar is 100% handmade. It’s made with the quality of a Paul Reed Smith, but it has more of a bluesy tone, an earthy, deep tone."more
