  • Awesome Marketing... Useless Product

    Just curious on some of your opinions about products that are on the market today that are advertised as a must have when in reality they are not needed.

    First one that comes to mind is a surge protector or something like this:

    http://www.guitarcenter.com/Monster-Power-PRO-1000-with-Clean-Power-Stage-2-Power-Outlets-102790748-i1125242.gc

    Which can have you shelling out $150 for no benefit.

    Are there any other items that you would tell a noob (like me) you will never need one of these OR the price just doesn't justify it?

        A sonic maximizer actually does something, whether it's desirable or not is up for debate but at least it DOES something.

              LOL. Tell me about it! Trying to set up my drumset while playing guitar on top of my QSC stack is a PITA!

                  Tis a joke, just busting his chops

                  I actually have used a lot of that gear and still use a sm57 and e835. Used to have a Marshall but I'm a Boogie guy.

                  Was teetering between a mixwiz and the studiolive (got the studiolive)

                        I wish someone who really knew what they were talking about could figure out what the hell those things really do and explain it.

                            Two uses:

                            1. Dubbing cassettes to your DAW. Really brings 'em to life.

                            2. In the FX loop of a Dual Recto, for Nu-Metal.

                            Other than that, not really.
