The harmonizer had no problem making this painfully evident. Yes, there are some things it just won't work on. (I can't think of a better example than Dylan.) And worse, it makes it screamingly and comically obvious when it doesn't! Don't be so sure about that. I have a Howlin Wolf/Tom Waits voice and the Harmony G tracks really good when using the upper third.
  2. The SG is cool but a little muddy. A DOT is a fabulous, and versatile, guitar.
  3. I currently use a POD X3 Live to process a Variax 700 guitar direct into the PA. I use both electric and acoustic sounds in my blues/country/folk duo. I'm happy with the POD, but am thinking about scaling down from the X3-L. Any suggestions for a small, inexpensive processor for my needs (must include amp modeleing).
  4. I play a Variax and use both electric and acoustic modeled sounds. I use a POD or Digitech RP500 straight into a PA. I only use three patches. Clean for the acoustic; clean for the electric, slightly grungy for electric. The patches are set up so I can add tremelo or a slight solo boost, if desired. BTW - I do stripped down blues, folk, and hillbilly. www.bossdiablo.com
  5. I presently gig with a Line 6 Variax 700 through a Line 6 Pod XTL straight into a PA. I'm diggin the acoustic sound more and more with the material I'm doin. But I also do some Chicago Blues with an electric sound. I'm thinking I might want to get a smaller and simpler processor/modeler that would be cool for both electric and acoustic. Any suggestions? Peas and love CB
  6. I've been using my Line 6 Variax through a Line 6 XTL direct into a PA. My current sets use both electric and acoustic guitar sound. The XTL is fairly good at both, but I'm looking for something smaller. (and I'm a little bored with the Line 6 sound). Any suggestions for both acoustic and electric processing/modeling? Gracias

  9. Originally posted by rakester hey man, personally i hate the flextone when i tried it out, sounds way to digital for me. with all the effects, models and all the other shizer it looks like a good deal. but at the end of the day you are getting soemthign like 40 ok sounds from it when you could buy a valveking for the same price and have a great sounding amp with many greta sounding tones compared to a load of ok sounds. i would get a valvekign any day over the flextone. all tube is the way to go, and tube amps sound better cranke wheras digital amps tend to break up I disagree. On paper a Valveking 1x12 seems like a cool amp. But I used one for a few gigs and found the speaker to be really harsh - sometimes offensive.
  10. Originally posted by tlbonehead The market changes. And look at all the people here who change amps even just out of curiousity or boredom. The Nomads and the Mav both had a pretty long run. I've had my Nomad 45 head for over 5 1/2 years. That makes sense. But it seems like Mesa Boogie overhauls their line much more than other manufaturers. It's confusing to know which amp is directed at which market (except for those big chrome heads and 4x12 cabs that are obviously for medern rock or metal). Again I play blues and roots rock. I like the rectoverb and nomad combos because of the solo boost. I think that is a really useful feature.
