«  Very good pedal but not a fan of sensations offered »

Publié le 06/28/13 à 15:23
What are the effects or types of effects available?
Volume pedal OR expression!

What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
Analog, L for Low-Inpedance (low impedance so).

Are they edited? Via a Mac / PC editor?
Not.

What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
An output jack EXP
Input / Output Jack.

Is this a rack or rack MODEL?
Not.

It is a metal pedal (aluminum) rather massive (more than Crybaby Classic), passive (no power required) offshore platform (whose hardness is adjustable via a screw Torque), surmounted by a adhesive pad or too much adhesive or too slippery.
The pedal will not move soil (laterally or longitudinally) and appropriate to the effects, or the keyboard for his "Expresion" function.
For volume, the pedal has a minimum volume adjustment via a potentiometer located on the flank of the pedal.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?
Yes, child.

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
Idem.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
Never.

In short, it's plug and play whatever use.
However, I'm not a fan of feeling offered by the board that I find a little big for my little girl 42. Not very practical either to play seated, the tilt axis is not ideal but it really depends on the user.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Volume: it is his taf. The action on the sound is progressive and bypass the pedal is clean. No kinks, no buzz, it is clear, clean and crisp. Hard to beat
In expresion pedal: ditto on the influence on the sound.


Which instruments do you use?
I use it as an expression pedal on a guitar multi-effect (Zoom G3)


Which ones do you prefer, you hate?
All!

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
I owned five months.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Plus:
- The solid and safe appearance of the pedal
- Transparency
- The progressive side by volume
Less:
- The feeling with the expression pedal

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, only Crybaby (no idea on the model), the Whammy (which I loved the feeling to use the foot) and expression pedals style of the multi-effects Boss or Zoom.

How would you rate the quality / price?
On the great occasion.
New, it is a bit expensive for the technology offered. The pedal may well be massive, aluminum should not cost the price.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
No but it still remains an excellent pedal less.
