Black Truck Bump
Interesting. Looking forward to hearing your impressions of it, when it arrives.
AC/DC Black truck movie music bump!
I've been looking for the perfect multifx. I need something with OD, delay, and trem minimum, and preferably a built in tuner. Also, I just won't do the scrolling around through menus, it's gotta be just straight-up knobs, so I can adjust quickly on the fly if need be.
I used this for a bit
...but found it in general sort of dark-sounding, I switched to this and was happy for quite some time
but eventually found it sort of "mushy" in general.
Like the clips I've heard of the Black Truck, and hoping it will be "jusssttt riiiiigght" (hoping that built in EQ will help with that)
The only multi that I haven’t come to hate within a couple months is a Donner 3-effect pedal. It’s just distortion, chorus and delay. No display or anything, just little knobs. I’ve come to the conclusion, after trying a few, that multi effects pedals are just not my thing. But...I also try to keep an open mind. I haven’t tried them all, by any means. Maybe there is one out there that’s just waiting for me to discover it.
Yeah really I'd sorta rather put together my own small board, component- by-component, except I really like to only have to worry about power to one thing, and one jack in and one jack out, and not have to worry about having one of those panicked "find where the signal died" episodes live.
What's the difference between the black truck and the red truck?
Perhaps you want to check out the Boss GT-1 too. Very easy to set up, even more easier if you connect it to your computer and use Tone Studio.
The red truck, if I recall, did not have trem, which was a big negative for me. Also, the black truck has full on distortion (hi- gain) available, and is more of a contraption for hard rock-metalheads
Just took a peek at that, looks more menu-scrolly and less knob-turney than I'd like
Hmm... I had one. It was really easy to use. I have the GT-100 now and I find it easier. Just scroll to each virtual pedal, and use designated knobs to adjust tone. Is that "knob-turney" enough? I like using the Tone Studio better though. It looks like a virtual pedal board. You can rearrange order of pedals or A/B split somewhere, put a pedal in front or after preamp sim, adjust settings of each pedal, etc. I love mfxs!
Looks like a nice toy for at home. Seems pretty cool and I like the 5 band EQ. That’s always a nice feature.
I’m not sure if something like that would work in a live setting.
What gives you doubts in this regard? As I stated earlier, I've used a few different very similar things, and they worked just fine, I simply became dissatisfied with the sound for different reasons
Now if it had MIDI presets...
It looks like you have to adjust between types of modulation on the pedal? Is that correct?
For me, I don’t think it would work. Perhaps for some, if you want to keep tinkering during your set, I dunno?
The reason I think this would work for me, is the only modulation I use is trem
