Garrett Coakley noted: >>Well, I *heart* my Korg AX-30 multi effects unit. How can you not love >>something that has a preset distortion patch called "Hostile" Thanks Garrett!! That certainly looks like a lot of fun! (Nice Marshall combo too! I used to have one of those. A Tele through a Marshall?? ... Are you sure that's allowed?) ;-P I think I'm leaning more towards the new version of the Korg Pandora ... it's a little more portable for lugging between the 'upstairs' guitar and the 'downstairs' guitar. >>it can do stereo output Heh. I used to run a Zoom 505 through a pair of Sony powered walkman speakers for a pseudo-stereo effect ... It's pretty wierd walking about and having the sound from multiple sources. But, alas, I gave my Zoom to my son when I bought him an electric bass. >>(watch that phaser doesn't mess with your head!) <sniff />RonL. has no phaser ... <sniff /> no flanger ... <sniff /> no compressor ... <sniff /> no roto-uni-vibe 'Leslie' emulator ... <sniff /> no cabinet or tube modeling ... <sniff /> no echoplex (although I played with one back when they were _analog_ ... moving the heads around the tape drum ... waaaay fun!) ... <sniff /> ... He's just _so_ deprived! ;-( >>Has an in built expression pedal too, so let those psuedo >>Hendrix impressions fly *:) Oh shooot ... *now* I'm gonna have to dig around in the closet and find my Jim Dunlop CryBaby Wah ... and put a few more callouses on my fingertips! ;-) RonL.
