Yes. It has amp and distortion modelers built in to it. Well, it wont make your amp totally SS sounding, but it will make it sound a lot worse.

Considering that's coming from a guy with a Spider... i'd take it with a grain of salt. I haven't used that particular multi-fx, but i have a Boss Gt-8, and with my tube amp, some of the effects suck some of the tube amp sound away and some are quite transparent. Best thing to do is find somewhere to try it out.

Your a dick. This kid has been on a long winded tube amp search, and I salute the fact that is buying a new amp. Just because you can't afford top notch equipment, doesn't mean that your a noob. I know this guy Mike knows his stuff...

I don't want it to sound like an SS... >_>

I really want the distortion models and I've only heard good stuff about the wah effects and such. I'm really interested in it. If its like a pod where the warmth of the tube is still there, then I'll get it for sure. I'm sure a lot of distortion pedals make the distortion sound like an SS amp. I just want the tone of the tubes to still be there.

@grim

Modellers are digital, so they will make a drastic change in your tone. Just try it out either way, see if you like it. You might want to look into a Boss GT-8 if you can make the plunge.

He doesnt. Hes asking if it will make it sound like a Solid State because he doesnt want it to sound like a Solid State.

I'm really mostly interested in the whammy, big muff, DOD 250, the wahs, the univibe, and the tubescreamer. Will the tubescreamer model function like a regular TS? same for the DOD? I would like for the modeler not to actually model the amp, (even though it says in the description) but for it to push the amp like a regular OD.

You should just get the real pedals. It will sound A LOT better and will last you along longer.

BTW, I dont think many people have had experience with the pedal, so you should just try it out if you can. If you cant then I'd stay away from it for sure.

I've actually tried the EX7 a few times. I almost bought it just for the Space Station. I didn't spend a whole lot of time playing around with the on-board distortion. It wasn't amazing, but it was alright. You can always turn them off and use it solely for the effects.
#15
yea well, distortion is one of the main things I want in it, also is the whammy and the wahs... So yea I guess I could buy the distortion on its own while using the ex7 for the effects.
#16
You never know, you might end up liking how the distortion sounds. Wait till you try it out yourself.
#17
Your getting your Valveking on Thursday, which means you don't have it now right? I'm just giving him my experience with multi-effects and a tube amp which i own, not which i've tried in the store for a limited amount of time. I'm not ****ting all over the spider. It isn't as bad as everyone thinks, it was my first amp too, and its an ok practice amp. I don't think i was coming across as a dick (ok maybe a little) but if i was, sorry.

PS Cowdude, get back to me when you've actually paid for any of your gear, and not got mommy and daddy to support you.

That's the main reason to get that pedal - I wouldn't hold out too much hope for the distortions on it but you never know...

I haven't tried that pedal but based on my experience with Digitech it will make a tube amp sound digital (to me that means rather sterile.) You would be much better off with some analog stomp boxes.

Its not about the Spider, I honestly think its a piece of ****, its just making the assumption that I dont know what I'm talking about because I have a Spider. That makes you come across as a dick.

I was thinking of getting it, because it has every effect I want in one pedal and is cheap. I know the models won't be as good as the real things, but will they get the job done decently without making a tube amp sound like a solid state?


i wouldnt get it for the distortion models really. they arent that great. if you want just the distortions look at the DF-7. the effects themselves sound fine through my tube amp though.

spot on.
#26
^you can use em, most of the review on harmony central say the treadle uses force to use and stays in place if just left there, meaning I can leave it on whammy or rotating speaker mode and not touch the treadle. Theres a guy on youtube who did it wit ha confortably numb solo.

I think I'm just gonna get a vox wah, a whammy, big muff, DOD 250, and Tubescreamer on their own. maybe later a univibe. I would rather have a better tone in the long run. Thanks guys.

Get out. So what if he had his parents buy him his gear. Is it a crime for his parents to have worked hard so they can afford to have their kids have stuff they want? I dont think so. You are just mad that you can't get awesome gear like that.

#28
Well, I know I'm making assumptions but usually modeling systems, they are getting better but not yet, will leaving you itching for the REAL sound you are looking for. They can't hold their own against the original thing, and if that is the sound you want, that is the sound you NEED.

Its more about not working hard for your own gear. You appreciate it more in my opinion b/c you know how many weeks or months you spent putting the money together. Its not a crime for parents to give their kids everything they want, its just stupid.
By the way i could afford his gear, i just have other things to spend my money on, like a down payment and mortgage.

aight, the whammy on this sounds too digital when you get to high up in the pitch shift up. down is perfect. this pedal is great but the distortions are a little off. i would just use the dist on your amp really, i dont really have a choice cuz i have a vox valvetronix and my brothers bass amp hooked into it. its better than the distortions on my vox, IMO. but its a great deal if your gonna use this for the effects. sum changes shuld have been made like for the univibe, rotary, vibrato and such but other than that the wah's are almost identical to theyre main chassis. the flanger, wahs, space station are probs the best ones. i got myn for 100 bux cuz i got it on the day for its 66 percent off sale and its a real great deal. i would spend bout 200 origionally due to its features (i give that a 10 outa 10) but the sound quality about an overall 8 outa 10. just try it out a lot at ur local shop or whatev
