Hey man, thanks!

nice, whats the loop station like?

The LS is definately worth every penny. If you find one, get it. I like the one I have over the board and stompbox versions.

You can record 11 phrases, or a total of 16 minutes, you can overdub what you just recorded, you can overdub your overdub with vocals, you can upload them onto your computer..... I love it.

Happy Birthday and congrats. Review the stuff for folks that may be looking at these things, maybe?

I've discovered a new holiday the past few years: Tax returns. I'm about to spend my tax return holiday money on an apartment-sized amp, if all goes well.
Feel free to call me Kyle.

Yeah man, I definately will. The LS will be a while for a review; that'll give me a chance to really mess around with it.

I've been meaning to review the V847, but time hasn't allowed for it.

1: 16

2: Definately the loop station. Don't get the Digitech one; it's nowhere near as user-friendly. I also suggest that World Tour case that mine is sitting in in the second picture. The padding is about 1/2 an inch thick.

3: I like both of the Vox's, but I got the V847 because of the 9v adaptor option. I think the McCoy has a slightly broader sweep than the V847, but I like the more upper-mid focus of the V847 as well. The V847 has its real change near the treble end of the sweep, and gets that SRV and Jimi sound. The McCoy does it even better, because that is what they actually used. It's really just personal preference. Both model the 60's-70's perfectly.

Hope that helped

Yes that really helped man. I will be done with my gear in about an year. The clyde mccoy doesn't can't be used with a 9volt battery, is that what you are saying?

Na, I mean the McCoy doesn't take a 9V adaptor. It only uses a 9V battery. I got the V847A because it could use batteries or adaptors. Also, I had a spare adaptor lying around in my room

happy birthday!! and dont you mean V847A! :P

And yeah, I did mean the V847A. Thanks for the correction

EDIT: By user-friendly, I meant that the Digitech is a chubi in the area of deleting phrases (if you don't know what a chubi is, try typing in "bitch" on you phone in word mode . Gets quite a lot of use around teachers among me and my friends :p.

Here is the process of recording a regular phrase (no backing/vocals, just you):

Press Mode until the LED beside Inst/Mic is lit up. Press AutoStart if you aren't overdubbing (starts recording when you start playing). Press the left pedal. Play riff. Press left pedal again to stop recording. The phrase will begin looping (can also be set for a one-time play). Don't like it? Press Exit + Write. Both buttons light up. Press Write again to delete it. Like the riff? Press Write twice.

The Boss LS also lets you record off a CD, like most phrase recorders. But, on the Boss, you can cut the guitar parts, making your own backing tracks.

EDIT NO. 2: The LS can also be used as a dummy load for the tubes on my amp! I found that the more I cranked the Instrument level knob, the higher the gain got coming through my amp. Same with the clean channel. Man, this thing just gets better and better......
