Re: Boss Waza reissue Dimension C chorus - DC-2W

... and it sounds- goood. Had a little panic there with the unit turning off in the middle of playing, and at first I thought I was killing it with synth volume levels. Turns out the battery wasn't that healthy- a fresh one soon kept things going. It's hard to describe- at the minimal setting, it ad...

Re: Boss Waza reissue Dimension C chorus - DC-2W

Wanted to find a chorus pedal, and in the process, discovered the Boss Dimension C- hadn't really been on my radar. Went looking online for a used one- and as usual, the price was- whoa. High- maybe too rare? So I kept reading about the WazaCraft line and lo and behold- a brand new one with double t...

I've been upgrading for a loooong time. First guitar was a 3/4 acoustic that somebody bought my sister, she abandoned it and I used it for my first band. It had no pickup, so I made one out of one side of a pair of headphones, and ran a cable to a mixer. It actually worked- I still have recordings o...

Bought one!

Love it, and am looking at the other ones.
This covers a lot of ground, and it's nice to fill it the background.

One guitar- playing keyboards, bass and everything else, albeit all at once!

Didn't even know the Wasp existed. Did my research, and another neat thing comes into view that's available to try out.

Well, got the Helix Floor because the price was more than right. And since I've used it for a bit now, I really am impressed at how easy it is to use, even without the editor. And the sounds- wow. They are quite good, and the amps aren't too bad- after a while, all distorted amps feel the same. Pret...

A real eye opener is the fact that I see on the various e-commerce sites, that the Helix rack is rarely/ never for sale used. I've seen lots of LTs, though. And from all the videos I've watched, most guys love them, then move up from the floor to the rack. I do like the fact that it fits in a rack, ...

I second that Behringer USB issue- sounded brutal.

Unless an 8 channel A/D gets cheap (other tha...

I picked up an 8 string 1956 Fender Stringmaster. Unfortunately, the guy split it- it was one half of a pair, only because he said he had trouble selling them together. He also had it repainted, and the guy did kind of a crap job on it. Sounds great, though- easy to play "If Not For You." Still lear...

I really like mine- sounds good. Distortion OK, but not overly exciting...

My only beef at this point is the fact that it is slightly longer than the Model D, which means I can't laser a nice stand to tier them together.

I wonder if the Pro-One is the same length....

Anyone have an opinion between the rack and the floor Helix? I'm considering this an all-in-one to size down the stuff- but I don't know if I have the desk space versus using the floor. Plus, the floor has the expression pedal as well... But it seems like the trend is that guys get the floor unit, a...

Hey all- I could really use your advice on this one. There's a Prophet 600 for sale near me- seller wants 1500 CDN (about 1100 USD) It's got damage- 2 of the switches are broken off completely, so it looks like it's gonna need some TLC as well. But they say it works. I could get it, and do the gligl...
