It’s pedal day, I guess. I picked up this Boss RV-3 off of Reverb the other day and just got home with it (the seller was here in Denver). I’ve only played around with it long enough to make sure all the knobs do things.

:upside_down_face: Tuner, then compressor, then do a ton of research on which preamp has the sound you’re after. Don’t compromise and spend less or you’ll end up buying 2 or 3 of things before you end up with the one you originally wanted but compromised on. I’ve got a drawer full of pedals so far because I compromised at first.

I got a korg chromatic inline tuner, you can see that just above the scarlett solo. Or is there a difference in pedal tuners?

I think I’m seeing the joys of those…

lol, so just go straight for the darkglass huh?

Well yes. I love my Peterson Stobe tuners. I’ve tried many different ones until Peterson, I’ve not changed the brand since.

Solid choice if that is the sound you want

If that’s THE one. Absolutely. I’m an Ampeg fella myself, and after not dropping the coin for an Ampeg twice I just got one and :heart_eyes:

I hate Darkglass, with passion. Spend your money somewhere else.

Is that just based on your bad experience with the Element? My Microtubes X was awesome.

100% I’m sure they make good stuff. I just hate them. There are other companies for me.

I’m very easy going, understanding and forgiving person, once I’m pushed pass that threshold, I flipped and I hold grudge. :rofl:

I think the Element was simply a bad design, lots of people had issues.

I initially bought a Zoom B1four, then started buying separate pedals (I have a tuner, a compressor, a chorus and a delay - all lovely pedals) then I met my band’s guitarist who has a Neural DSP Quad Cortex.

WOW!! That thing rocks, but the price is eye watering (£1,500 in the UK) and I simply can’t justify that kind of expenditure. So I bought a second hand Hotone Ampero One. A fraction of the price, but quite a lot of the functionality. Basically, all the pedals you think you need are emulated in it and you can set up specific patches - got a clean and a dirty I like - but I’ve also got patches for specific songs. It’s fantastic. It also works as an interface (making my Scarlett Solo redundant).

I really need to sell the separates now, it’s just finding the time!!

I’ve got a Zoom also and I like the idea of the all in one’s, especially for testing out different cab sims and overdrives and stuff. I made the decision that I just prefer the old school pile of stompbox’s slapped to a board of some kind. In the end I’ll pay more than I would if I just bought a Nueral. I understand that. It’s more of a sentimental decision going back to my wannabe Thurston Moore days.

If I were to play live again (aint gonna happen), I’d just get a quad cortex and run both my bandmate’s guitar and my bass through it.
