    But, from an economic standpoint....I could buy a car for what it would cost to assemble this board. And certainly a nice rack-mount effects unit or modeler. What's the motivation to stick with the boxes, when the cost starts reaching stratospheric heights?



    I realize the obvious answer is: "it sounds great", but there's got to be a point (especially for gigging) where you start to see diminishing returns.....




    Well, from my own experience, the one main plus is in the form of real-time tweak-ability. In theory my HD500 does everything I need and more but I realized I like having the ability to adjust parameters in real time without having to dive through menus so I started putting together a proper pedal board. With just a handful of pedals I've far exceeded the cost of a HD500 or similar multi-fx unit but I find the new (old-fashioned) setup to be much more conducive to experimentation.

        Incorrect. This is an investment board. He said it earlier... He's never going to gig with this. This is for collecting, enjoying, and profit. Function is not a priority here...

        • it is a badass board for the studio.



          greeny .... is there any difference between the cheese source and the big cheese/brown source combo? i always thought those were the same circuits.

              I used to have a Big Cheese, Brown Source and Cheese Source all at the same time, and found the fuzz side of the CS to be noticeably brighter than the standalone Big Cheese. It may have been because of a slightly revised circuit, or maybe just the slight variances of components... or something else...

              The Brown Source side was identical to the standalone pedal as far as I could tell.

                that's a Shin-ei Companion clone someone offered me. rules. no Blue Box here, unfortunately. YET!



                the Dano is a V1 fuzz. ****************ing rules too.... i think i prefer it to any other Big Muff-type sounding pedal i've tried so far, but i'm still in the honeymoon phase. it's, to my knowledge, a Frantone Peach Fuzz, which is why they had to stop making it.




                Sweet, and Fuzzy!

                        OK....then, I'll alter my analogy a bit. For the money invested in that board, I could put together a hell of a computer-based studio, including some nice Pro-Tools equipment and guitar modeling software that would make all the same sounds. Right? What am I missing here?

                                i've found this too really. although i've found the source side to have a little more volume on the dual than standalone. the dual one is ****************ing kickass.
