Memory Man with Hazari. Is it worth it? I'm not trying to get the analog memory man sound with it, because I know that won't happen, but is it good enough as a main delay pedal? I'm selling my verbzilla and this kid wants to trade this for my verbzilla.
That’s a pretty good deal you’re kinda ripping him off, go for it!
Pretty sure you've always wanted to see me naked.. Well.. I'm feeling pretty adventurous today so go to datelink5(dot)com (switch [dot] with .) then sign up and find my profile under the username 'lolsummer69'. I hid my face in the pictures. but I want you to guess who I am and then hit me up on Facebook lol. Good luck.
Do you have any hands on experience with the Hardwire stuff, especially the reverb? It seems like you turn it down based simply on the fact that it's Digitech. It gets positive reviews from people on The Gear Page as well as TDPRI and Harmony. I also love mine.
Digitech is joke, the only thing that justifies their existence is the Whammy which is very unreliable and brakes about every two years or so. Hardwire isn’t too bad, but it’s like Digitech has had such a history of making shotty products that the one time that they put a little effort into making something people start losing their shit and over-hyping them.

Hey man great blog :)
I just want your opinon on whether to get the Line 6 Verbzilla or the Digitech Hardwire Reverb, I'm looking to play shoegazey and post-rocky stuff and don't have much cash to fork out on an expensive pedal
The best thing for a shoegaze style 'bloom' or dreamy reverb is a Yamaha SPX-90 rack, unfortunately. Both The Horrors and MBV used it to great effect. There are loadable patches called 'bloom' and 'early reflection' which are the same parameters used by those bands.
However, the Yamaha Magicstomp pedal, I'm told, can give a similar sound, but I've got no experience with it.
Personally, I use a very old DOD/Digitech PDS-3000 Pedalverb. It's quite rare now, but it has an amazingly unique reverb quality and a brilliant preamp which can oversaturate the reverb trails into it's own overdriven crescendo. It also has a hold feature for infinite reverb (think of it as the EHX Cathedral almost 20 years before it even came out), which is - in my opinion - better than the Cathedral's (I've owned both and sold the EHX to keep this).
For both those bands, what's essential is an early reflection, gated or ideally 100% wet reverse reverb with short trails. It's as much in the playing style as it is the reverb. A boatload of compression is always a good idea too considering that's where Kevin Shields always maintained he manipulated his guitar from most.
Are there any good fuzz pedals that can be used on both bass and guitar? I heard the russian big muff is pretty suitable for bass, but from what I've heard, it sounds bass heavy on guitar. Is the bass big muff pi any better?
Try to get an EHX “Green Army” Big Muff or a Zvex Woolly Mammoth.
Are there any cheap delay pedals capable of super shot delay? Most of the cheap ones by behringer don't have anything less than 200 ms? I'm looking for something a lot shorter, preferably 50 ms and under.
I love my AC-15's overdrive and its clean tones, but hate that I can't switch between them without a boost. Should I go for the TS9, OCD, or what? I've got a budget of up to $150. I play a jazzmaster and mostly indie stuff.
I don’t believe in multi-effects processing units because they are often clunky, hard to use, and don’t sound as good. Also there isn’t just one effects unit company that makes the best of everything each brand has their specialty. Like Boss for example, boss makes good reverb and digital delay pedals, but they can’t ever get distortion right. So if you buy a boss multi-effects unit you’ll get the good digital delay, but you’ll be stuck with the terrible distortion.
Hey, do you think there is a point in buying a Digitech Whammy pedal, when you can buy a Digitech RP55 modeller (It's only 150 USD)? I've tried both, next to each other, and the whammy effect sounds the same to me, and you could use the RP for a wah (Not for delay/reverb etc, because they are BAD). What do you think about it?
The Whammy is the only excuse that Digitech hasn’t gone bankrupt a long time ago. So I don’t think you should buy anything from them that isn’t a Whammy.
What do you think of the turbo rat? I want a little more distortion than the normal rat can give me.
I don’t really like Turbo Rats but I guess that’s just my personal preference. What I would do if I were you is stalk the Rat on top of something so you can keep the Rat’s distortion but with more power, try using a boos pedal.
