Pieces of gear that everyone seems to like, except you...
« on: December 12, 2011, 09:59:58 PM »
MI Audio Crunch Box - Some say it is one of the best Marshall in a box pedals.  I tried it personally, and found it very fuzzy and quite frankly, it did not cut very well the way Marshalls are supposed to. 

Vox Pathfinder - Very coveted, at least in the GC and B&S forums, but I don't know... they sound tinny to my ears.  maybe they work very neutral with pedals but not my cup of tea...
 
Still thinkin...

Lovepedal Eternity Burst - a lot of people like it both as a stand alone OD or booster, etc. Known to have that "woody" tone (which I really like..but then..), actually, it's the woodiest among the Eternities. I didn't like it. Feels really cheap, too. I'd take a Digitech Hardwire CM-2 or Visual Sound Route 808 any day.

Seymour Duncan JB-Jazz - heard and read great things about them popular set.. the go-to set when changing or upgrading pickups.. only had them for a while though, instantly realized that my previous Dimarzio PAF36s would be better in every way, at least for me.

Lovepedal Eternity Burst - not my thing, I guess.

RC Booster - again, not my thing.

Boss TU2/3 - There are better out there at the same price range.

SD1 - Boss has made better things than that..

tube amps?  :eek:


I dislike the hassle of changing tubes, I dislike that it's fragile(tubes), I dislike how you have to crank it to defeaning volumes to get "the sound"

which is why I'd take an axe fx over any tube amp any day of the week  ^-^

Guitars:
Gibson Les Paul DC Pro It sounded good but its neck design just wasn't for me. I suffered from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms for almost two months because of it. Sold it to Louis Isok (WilaBaliW).

Pedals:
Empress Multidrive Overhyped, in my opinion. It's versatile but doesn't have a particularly great sounding OD, distortion or fuzz.
Bixonic Expandora Again, overhyped. Average-sounding settings.

What's the moral lesson of the story? All-in-one drive pedals may offer more tones but tend to sound only mediocre to average. Application-specific drive pedals sound the best to me.

METAL ZONE! had one for just a month... it just didn't give me the extra "oomph" that i was expecting... had it swapped to a Digitech Double Play PDS 2700 (but sold it here in PhilMusic after 2 years, but it was very worth it)

Squiers (guitars and basses), can't get the action low enough without em' buzzing all over the neck especially the higher frets.

Fulltone OCD - It sounded fizzy to me. The Barber Direct Drive was much much more amp-like.

Sansamp GT2 - I have to admit this one is really handy, but I just didn't like the sound I was getting from it.

Vox Satchurator - Fizzy. Top endy, but with a nice vocal tone to it. Pretty much nailed Satch's tone recorded with a cellphone.  :-o

Toneczar Openhaus - It sounds too 'open'. I love tight sounds better

Fender amplifiers - They sound pretty decent but every time I plug into one, I get insane (more or less, crappy) feedback. Fender amps sound thin for me also

^^ same reason
By trying to look unique, everyone ends up looking the same.
