    Benado Effects
    http://www.benadoeffects.com/

    I was perusing through the September 2012 edition of Premier Guitar and making notes of things that seemed interesting for later research. One of them was Benado Effects, and specifically because of the option they are doing of combining their pedals into multi-effect units.

    AR Jazzy Blues


    It is difficult to hear things well in NAMM videos, but here they talk about this one.

    Anyone here with any experience with this company?

      It comes across as stark. It's just begging for some etched artwork or something.

          i don't really get the multiple fx in series as multi-fx - it just seems so much more limiting than just buying the pedals as single units. especially when there are no re-routing options...

          also, their big multi is $1250.

            A benefit to it could be easy of transport and fewer cables.

              i guess so... but 3 pedals/4 cables vs 1 big pedal/2 cables?
              to each his own!

                  well once you have it on a board, transport of multiple single pedals is just as simple. and cables...meh...you set them up once and youre good to go. and what if you decide you dont like one of the effects after all, then youre screwed because you cant just sell that one effect off and replace it with something else.

                  and that price tag is ridiculous

                    It is high, but $1250 /5 pedals plus an a/b box is about $250/effect. Not great, but not unheard of in the boutique world. My guess is resale would plummet though. Overall, it has little appeal to me. I think its market is pretty limited too.

                      Yeah, it's like this weird extraneous middle ground between multi fx processors and single pedals.

                      Multi FX processors are cool because you've got thousands of FX in one box. Single stomps are cool because it's one little box for one sound. Easy to change out, simple as pie to use.

                      Now you've got these frickin things that take up the space of a multi fx, and have all the limitations, but none of the advantages of single stomps. So you like the delay and drive, but get tired of the verb. WHOOPS!

                      I think two drive pedals in one box is about the limit of practical dual stomp boxes. Like a TS and a Rat, or a TS and a Muff. Something like that. But these three/four different effect boxes like this and the Tone Tattoo are just silly if you ask me. No one is that decisive. Especially not a musician.

                      Then, when you're done with it, have fun selling it. It will be a stroke of luck.

                      I mean I have no idea about the sound of the actual pedals, I'm sure they're great, but this build style just seems very impractical to me. YMMV.
                      Sometimes you follow your heart. Sometimes your heart cuts a fart.

                          yea, resale would be shiite. could probably sell that for like 300 bucks tops

                              More importantly the delay has a control for 'Repet'.
