what pros? Oh wait... Firewood..

Dont waiste your money man, save upto 250-300 and you could get a Vox ad or Roland cube. it will be worth it on the long run!

dont buy it!
youll have the first month or two fun,but after that,its just a shitty sound and everything!you cant get andy good metal sound out of it!!
get a good amp and a dist. pedal and delay/chrous pedal!!

pro:effects are not that bad,not too difficult
contra:dist. not good,sound not good..


try it in a shop

i'm not really aiming for metal sound~ well, i have a decent distortion pedal and a decent delay pedal~ i'm still waiting for more opinions but since there aren't much replies to this thread, i assume the vamp must be crap.

Honestly I thought the Vamp 2 had just as good as high gain sounds as the Podxt. It really excels at that kind of sound.

I pulled mine back out after a year of sitting in the box, Ive been using a Vox ToneLab and a Digitech Rp350. I really think this thing is the champ out of those for metal & high gain. It can get a little muddy sounding but play with the eq and you'll be set man.

For a 100 bucks it kicks ass, not to mention the effects on it are top notch

I used one for about 4 years. It sounds good, particularly through a plain solid-state amp or through a computer for recording. Its technology is a little dated now and there are better, newer, units on the market but it's still a good unit, particularly for $99. It is essentially a reverse engineering of the original Line6 POD with a few extras. The two units sound almost exactly alike.

If you click on my sig link you can hear a lot of clips of it. About 80% of the clips for my website were recorded using it.

Yeah thats what I thought too it sounds just like the old POD. I always thought it did high gain sounds really well nice and full compared to some of the thinner sounding distortions ala Digitech,Korg ect ect...

Though I can't bag on digitech to much I love the RP350 its probably my favorite out of the multi efx pedals though the distortions aren't as power as the pods or vamps.
