agreed. a high quality line conditioner should work. if you dont want the typical rack style, these tripplite blocks are killer.
How well does the Katana handle pedals?
Already did but could it be that the pre amp is making it sound fuzzy?
I can agree with the sentiment of what you say: reviews are not to be relied on in isolation. They do give a starting point though. And I see enough negative comments to influence me so I don't hold with your comments that people don't like to say they've wasted money on something that is crap.
Personally, because of my location I don't get to try before I buy. I'll get some ideas of possible candidates, check general reviews on vendor sites and discount ones that everyone says are sub-standard, and do more research on ones that get good average reviews. That might involve reading specific reviews of individual pedals, watching videos featuring the pedals, and reading forum posts by people who own those pedals.
I'm surprised you think the first step in that process isn't helpful, though I could agree it's less than helpful on pedals that are not very common - I've had to make a choice between a Chicago Iron Parapedal or a Wilson Effects Freaker based on very little information. But for a $50 delay pedal, I'd definitely be looking at at average ratings as a first step to weed out the better ones from the worse ones.
So really, how do you go about choosing a pedal? I'm intrigued...
not a clue what you are talking about. Site reviews are often fake. Also how many people that just bought something will say it sucks, they were dumb and wasted their money? I said nothing about other posters responses. As for op just trying to give best answer to helpDude, I can see you're frustrated with the OP, but there's no need to p*ss on the contribution of others.
1) Both pedals get reviews around 4.5 on vendor sites.
2) Pretty much how I built up my board. Can be tricky to know what features you may want to use and the cheaper pedals can be very limited in scope (eg: I got a cheap reverb that only does spring, so it hasn't helped me to figure out what other reverbs would do for me), so here the Mooer looks like it has more to offer than the Donner with the analog/real/tape switch.
1. Budget: My decision making is not budget-based, although you can use the 2 pedals I mentioned as a frame of reference. it's more about testing the water but not wanting to waste money on crap.
2. I don't know my needs, yet: I want to try one and see what it gives me.
I guess I'm just spoiled at having great tuning stability from my Floyds. But any non-locking vibrato system is going to have inherently worse tuning stability than a system that locks. Not to mention that 6-point trems don't have the tuning stability of 2-point bridges due to their lack of knife edges to reduce friction.
I'd just deck the trem so that its dive-only. Non-locking bridges are never good at floating at the best of times.
I heard from a lot of people that amp has not really good clean and I feel its not that bad, but not good enough. I have some money and i wanna upgrade my gear.
Tbh i thought you guys will vote mostly on HRD.
Well, could be they don't need that much gain, they're using it for a boost in front of a high gain amp, and a lower gain pedal run at its limits sounds different than a high gain pedal turned down.
Really, if you're after a high gain sound, that comes from an amp - not a pedal.
i have already pod farm, but i cant find good sound enough
monwobobboI live in turkey.So my budget isn't that good.Is Line6 spider iv 15 good ? Or any 20 or 30 watt amp ?
new amp . Pick up change will do nothingmonwobobboI'm using an Marshall Mg15CFX
jazzmonkey420 Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the clean tones, and I don't think the overdrive is too treble-y. But I think the overdrive is a bit fizzy, or harsh. Maybe it's just the result of having more treble, and you're right.
Worth noting that a LOT of these pedals are replicated (with varying degrees of success) in modelers/multiFX precisely because they've been around a while and because their sound is iconic. They'll have different names, of course, so you'll be looking for something like "Vermin Dist." One of the reasons I bought my first Pod XT "bean" was that It allowed me to try out a ton of options before I went out to buy the standalone pedal version of the effect on the Multi. After a while, I dented my forehead when I realized that no one in our audiences could tell (or care about) the difference. But by then, I'd acquired a ton of separate FX (some of them twice, when I forgot that I'd had one in my bins some years before) whose prices added up to some eye-popping numbers.
monwobobbo I use it as a distortion, but I keep the tone low. With the Marshall there were no issues. But the problem comes also when I switch to the drive channel.
