    Pretty cool pedal, thanks for sharing!

    Dunno whether it's my hearing, the standard YT mangling of audio, or my laptop speakers but, in all honesty, I was hard-pressed to hear much of a difference in most of his examples. :confused:

    I was really hoping that it would really do what it claimed, but I didn't think it did a very good job of emulating the various guitars.
    Plus I wouldn't want to have to tweak the tone & volume every time I switched the guitar type. He seemed really happy with 335 emulating his strat, but I didn't think they sounds at all alike.

    Only one that I thought sounded 'different' was the Strat emulation from his Telecaster.

    So what was the sound he was going for with the humbuckers on both Teles? Looked like TV Jones on one and some kind of humbucker fit into a single coil size on the other. This comparison was questionable at the start. Having said that I noticed some change in sound all the way through but sound like a different guitar? huh?

    Technology:eek:
    Interesting gadget.

    Forget the guitar profiles!
    I need a player emulator.
    I'd profile Clapton, BB, Stevie and Jimi then I'd be all set.(y)

    This presupposes you have the guitars you want to profile to start with, certainly an interesting gadget

    As a "tone multiplier" that looks pretty good.

    You can probably achieve much the same either with a digital amp simulator or a good graphic. What this can't do is change the feel and setup of the guitar which is why I swap about. some of my guitars feel better for open chords some for barres and little chords some for power chords. And the gibson scale length is much better for the blues in E. Alaso if you break a string and swap patches you still have a broken string. Swap guitars and it's fixed:rolleyes:

    cheers

    Their own demo makes it sound better (naturally).
