jackssounds asked: I'm trying to design my board but I need help making some decisions. First, do you guys think that I could get away with using 2 analog delays without tap tempo or anything fancy? I would need to get a dotted eighth sound but I'd be using a Malekko 616 and a Deluxe Memory Man XO with the DMM set up for dotted eighth. Or should I get something with a tap tempo? Second, do you guys think I should be taking the minimalistic approach when it comes to the amount of pedals I actually have on my board?
This all depends on what kind of music you play as well as your personal preferences when setting up your rig in the home/studio/live. i have owned the memory man xo and the memory boy deluxe at different times and its just much easier to have something with a dotted function. makes adjusting settings mid set completely simple.
What do you guys think? Is this shit cool or is there like way too much going on?
Guys, there are 3 weeks left to join this amazing opportunity to get a brand new boutique pedal company started!
Head on over to Kickstarter to check out the The Germ and info on how to own your very own!

Those two pedals are so different dude. You might as well get both. It really depends on what you want your rig to sound like.
hiddenvoyage asked: tc electronic x4 flashback vs dl4 ?
Well the x4 Flashback is better on paper, but at this point you can buy 3 DL4’s on craigslist for the price of one x4 Flashback. So if you got money to blow go for a the Flashback. It’s a truly amazing piece of equipment, but if you don’t regularly shit money just go for the DL4. It’s a solid pedal, it won’t let you down.
apileofsmiles asked: Would you guys go for a vox ac15 or a fender hot rod 15 watt? I play mostly post rock and some indie stuff.
It kinda depends on what kinda sound you like. If you want a brighter, chime like clean, and a saturated distortion go for the Vox. If you want a smoother, twangier clean and a gritty distortion go for the Fender. I’m not gonna be able to declare a winner in the never ending UK sound vs. US sound battle. You just gotta go with what sounds good to you.
