And just why is the boss harmonist "absolute garbage"?
Because it’s absolute garbage. Especially when compared to other pitch based effects units such as the EHX POG2 or the Eventide PitchFactor. Go check it out at your local guitar shop and you’ll see what I mean. I don’t get why some of you people get pissed off when we say that a certain pedals sucks. We’re just trying to help you get a good sound. I mean if you wanna go and waste your money on a piece of shit pedal who am I to stop you?
I've got this sparkly new Rickenbacker 330 6 string because I dunno, my fingers just didn't like the 12. I've got a Pitchfactor and a POG2 on my first board that has sex with my Jazzmaster, but want to build a second board for my Ric. What would you recommend as an octave pedal for the Ric? I've been considering a PS6. Are they crap, compared to my Pitchfactor and POG2?
You already have the two best pitch based pedals on the market I don’t see why you would need another one, and yes the PS-6 is absolute garbage.
Just like to add something to the Line6 M9 post. I got one to use with bass and it's awesome. No low end drop out and even the tuner works well for lower frequencies. I do not however use it for any drive/sustain/fuzz effects (DM4/yellow box features), delays, reverbs and modulations.
Yeah I never used the drive/sustain/fuzz either, cause it simply sounds like shit.
unless you're broke and have no other options, is it ever really worth selling pedals? I've cut my board down and haven't bought anything new in a year now. I have a lot of cool stuff that sits on a shelf to be used once in a while, or not at all. I could probably get rid of a lot of it, but past sellers remorse, the chance of finding use for something again and the fact that I'll never get back what I put into it always stops me. I am an addict/hoarder.
It really depends on what you decide to do with the money you get. A good thing to do would be to sell whatever you’re not using at the moment, take the money and get something else. If you don’t like it, you can always sell the new shit and get back the old shit. You feel me? Obviously you can’t afford to have everything you want on your board, so sometimes you need to make sacrifices in order to really find what you’re looking for. Try it, get rid of some stuff you may not want anymore and take the money to get stuff you’ve been dying to try out.
I just got a tube half stack for a really good price and need to start building up a board. I have an american big muff pi at the moment. There are so many different pedals, i just don't know where to even start.
Depends on what time of music you want to make obviously. Get back to us with a couple of “influences”.
i'm thinking of buying the small clone, but recently the electric mistress caught my attention... what would you recommend?
They do different things but we like both. Bobby would prefer a mistress and I would go with the clone but it’s really up to your sound what you should get. The mistress will send you to outer space and the clone takes you deep underwater.
If you guys are gear whores who are obsessed with all things related to electronic musical instruments why dont you talk more about guitars, amps, and cabs. I would really like to see that from this blog.
We don’t talk about anything first of all. We only answer questions as they’re sent to us. We enjoy displaying the pedalboards of well known musicians because it’s the heart of their sound, which in most cases is hidden. Guitars and amps are too bland boring and generic everyone uses a les Paul , strat or sg with a Mesa triple orange ad30 or vox ac30.
I have been looking at Boss RV-3's recently. Is there any difference between the Black/Grey labels and the Pink labels? If so, why the change and is there a massive difference in production numbers that you may know of?
Everybody (nobody) talks about how the RV-3s with pink labels are better than the ones with the grey labels. But in reality there is no difference between the two whatsoever. Both were made in Taiwan with the exact same components. Boss literally just ran out of pink labels so they started using grey labels.
What's the name of the white pedal in both of the Jonsi pedal boards you just posted? Does that say T-Rex something? Sorry for my ignorance... Also, if you had the time could it be possible to post a list of pedals/equipment (as far as you can see/know) along with the picture when you post pictures of pedal boards? All the best
It’s a T-Rex Bass-Juice. We really don’t have the time to do that. However if I’m ever bedridden or nursing a serious injury again, I will personally go back and label all of our pictures myself.
Hey Bitch Tits Last Time I Asked For A Unique Guitar Sound You Just Said "Jimmy Page Is God" And Linked Me To A Video Of Him Playing With Zeppelin.... I Meant Crazy Spaceship Sounds And What Not. Opening Line To Blackhole Sun Type Stuff. Feel Me?
To the people who keep asking about the Holy Stain, they are really good pedals for the price. The reverbs sound a ton like the typical EH reverb, the hall sounds absolutely incredible. Tremolo and the fuzz sound good too. Everything on it feels and sounds very analog. I do agree with you guys here about multi-effects though. The Stain is not very well suited for live use because you have to use the same settings for every effect. Good for someone new to pedals.
Hey, i've got a Hot Rod Deluxe 3, and a Jaguar H/H, The clean is good and full sounding enough for what i want, but when I use the amps drive its a little lack lustre. I'm thinking of getting a decent drive pedal to boost my clean channel to drive the amp, people have said the Fulltone OCD or Plimsoul. I've also had ZVEX Super Hard-on suggested to me. Any help with direction on this would be good. Thanks
I personally use a fulltone OCD version 1 with my avri jaguar and twin. I’ve owned versions 3 and 4 before as well both are garbage and lack a proper gain sweep. I’ve owned a boss super overdrive and fulltone fulldrive 2 MOSFET I loved both to death and wish I hadn’t had to sell either. The Plimsoul is trash. The modern inane tubescreamer isn’t so bad. Any of The above mentioned should work fine
