if you want perfect pinches, work on your technique

I think you should trade in the spider 3 since it's trash.

If you're going to use a multi-effects processor, you might as well just run it through the PA. No need for the spider 3.


what sort of effects and stuff are you looking for anyway? i mean you basically just listed a ton of metal... in which case all you really need is a really nice distortion sound, and maybe a boost or slight delay/reverb.

i do play metal alot but every metal musician has there balads of course so i do need a nice clean sound, what im looking for i guess is the podXTlive but what amp do you suggest i run that threw?

No, you CONCUR, and "extentuate" is not a word.

Anyways, you could have all the gain in the world, pull a half assed pinch harmonic, and it'll still sound insane, but technique is really the best thing to work on. It'll give you incentive to get better, not just run to cover up your technique with pedals.

If you can't get enough gain with your spider, something's wrong. If anything, an od, like a Bad Monkey, with the level down, and the gain all the way up could help. You will need to stand further away from the amp though.

Run the Pod through the PA if you want or a nice clean amp, like a JC120, or and Ampeg.

what i'd do, get the xt live, keep the spider as a practice amp for around the place, and get an amp that has a power amp in on the back of it and feed the amp from your xt live from there. that'll get you the best sound with very, very little tonal shaping. of course, the only knob that'll work on your amp will now be the volume

thanks. appreciate all the advice i've come to the conclusion that im gonna get the podXTlive and just hook it up to my spider 3 so i keep the settings but can now manipulate them with my feet while playing live! thanks guys!
