Similar to the EHX Users' Guild, I shall form a Visual Sound Users' Guild.


This thread is for discussion on the company that has some of the coolest pedals on the market.


To get things started, what VS product do you own? I personally have a V2 series Double Trouble Overdrive.

Are the V2 pedals any different than the original pedals tonally? From the pictures it just seems smaller and less sturdy but I don't know. Maybe being a owner someone could clear that up.

^ I thought you had no need for pedals?
Seriously though an H2O would be nice, i'd like a Route 66 overdrive as well.

Ya, I wish I had no need for pedals. I should have bought the Spider III.

/sarcasm

But, kidding aside, I really do love Visual Sound pedals. They are really great products, I just wish they were more affordable. Or I wish I would stop blowing my gear fund on crap I don't need.

Have owned an H20 replaced that with the boomerang chorus delay. No more unity gain problems. Also owned the route 66.Something was mising that I just coudn't put my finger on replaced it with a Barber tone pump. Visual sound makes some good pedals but not the best.

^ Nah.


The Double Trouble is really cool. I can get a pretty awesome range of tones. I'd get an H20, but I don't think the delay would be long enough for my uses.

I'd get an H20 but I don't reckon it's as good as a Deluxe Memory Man.

Any thoughts on that?

It depends on what you're aiming for, it's a chorus/echo; the DMM is delay, if you're interested in a chorus and something like slap-back than the H2O is suitable, the DMM is for you're crazier delay needs.

On the subject of VS pedals in general, I'm thinking of the Jekyll and Hyde - but, I'm curious as to the range of tones they can produce: bluesy? classic rock? grungey? modern/hard rock? metal?

Basically, what is the range of the J&H?

The Jekyll and Hyde, I'd imagine, would be able to do just about anything. A single overdrive on my Double Trouble can get up to classic rock territory, and the J&H has a distortion channel as well. (In case you didn't know, the OD channel on both is the same.) The J&H should be able to do at least hard rock if not more.


If you have anymore questions, you should ask Slats, because his son has one if I remember correctly.

Lol he's not alone I got a #1 Echo and Sovtek Smallstone.

Of course there's always room for my 1 spot. I especially like how the wire length is long enough to reach my pedals form the outlet. The other adapters only go out about 4 or 5 feet.

I have a 1spot powering my board right now if that counts...

I've heard the H20 is nice but has its share of problems. Any thoughts on that? I'm looking for a chorus and a delay so the 2 in 1 looks appealing.

I have the Jekyll and Hyde pedal, The OD side is a very good Tube screamer clone, that I like better than the Reissue 808. It has more volume than the stock 808 so its really good for pushing your tube amps distortion further, plus it has a bass boost which would be handy if I where not using it to OD my amp. The Hyde Distortion is okay, it is pretty versatile it can do anything from blues-classic rock all the way into hard core metal territory and further when used together with the Jekyll side, It's a decent distortion pedal but I prefer my amps OD over the Hyde distortion, but its nice to able to totally change your tone of your amp with a stomp. The distortion side really left me feeling like all other distortion pedals I have used, they just don't compare to a good tube amps OD, don't get me wrong, I have yet to use a distortion pedal that I think sounds as good as my Peavey classic 30 stock distortion. The Jekyll and Hyde is as good or better than many distortions pedals I have ever used, but the bright side is the OD is nearly worth the price of the jekyll and hyde alone, the distortion is a nice bonus.

I have one of the original H20 pedals cant report any problems with it, except the delay side is very batt hungry. It does what I need it to do. I have a old dod delay but dont need it and the one in the H20 only chorus I had before was a cheap danelectro. I have thought about one of their vol pedals but havent seen a huge need for one. Their power supply is pretty good.

The DT is a wonderful pedal. I made metal tones come out of a clean Mark I. It can most def handle anything.

Seriously. I can get any tone I want out of my Double Trouble without a problem. Since my amps a little one channel thing, I just set the DT to what I want, and treat it as a second, and if I'm playing light enough stuff, third channel. I absolutely love it.

When I was going through the booklet of settings to try, the SRV tone was more br00tal than anything else. It's wonderful, and way worth the price.
