Any of the distortions have the same kind of brutality as that of the Tri-Metal pedal or are the distortion patches reminiscent of those in the crappy plasticy Zoom 505 units? I have a Tri-Metal pedal I would sell if I knew I could replace it with a G2.

How does it compare to your ToneLab???

 

 

I like it better for the stuff I do.

 

the delays and reverbs on the G2 are pretty cool plus you can have 2 delays running at once.

 

The distortion can be really really tight and dead silent between stops. It is also good for headphone practicing because of the drum machine and it has the line out for direct recording.

 

the cleans are pretty good, some sound too compressed but I use it mainly for the distortion and fuzzy sounds.

 

the tonelab does sound tubey but I really dont care too much about tubes anyways.

 

for 100 bucks its awesome.

 

I got it for 90 out the door!

for high gain {censored} this thing is very good. IMO the noise gate is dead silent and You can turn it up really loud. Im using a few different distortions and fuzzes I want to see how they cut in a band situation. But you get pretty much a 6 band eq.

low, mid , treble
and low mids and other things I forget. You can make it sound very thick too.

I havent played with the flange enough.

but for 100 bucks this unit is worth it at least for practicing.

you get a headphone out, a built in drum machine

a ton of effects.

you can turn off the preamps or amp sims and just use effects.

there is alot to be had.

an external expression can be added.

the ring mod is good too! :evil:
