    Mesa Boogie Amp Simulators. For more details see the manufacturer's website.

    UTILIZATION

    Could not be more simple ... if not careful the effectiveness of hyper knobs ... they are dangerous!!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use it in computer music. It plugs directly into the gnralement line between the sound card. I use it with all kinds of guitars. I bought this having watched APRS:


    I have to say does have some of the beginners ... I thought I had finally idalie pedals for my solos ... but ultimately I do gure its frquences in "large" saturation ... (Very loud).
    The bass is heavy and drooling as I do not like them ... almost impossible to correct ...

    I redcouvre today not to give me......

    I redcouvre today not to give me sound big, but to make super clean and crunch. So it seems the nivreau gniale enough ... The clean and crunches are gaining in volume and clarity. It's wonderful twang!!

    Connects to bottom of my pod xt has turned not bad either ... but I does not engage in amp simulation on the pod xt ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    So it is the good or I was not expecting it ... sr sudden I'm going to make good use! CHRE but it is super quality and effective. I think when I have the means to pay me the rest of the collection ... <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" />

    The metal box is nice, (it is reminiscent of old boxes of candy or chocolate or sugar)
    Pedal, which simulates some amp models MESA-BOOGIE.
    HP 12 simulator built in.
    1 input and output Jack 1 / 4 "
    1 x 9V DC to power (ability to feed via a 9V battery)
    6 plastic knobs (Level, Mid, Character, Drive, Low, High) extremely sensitive and effective.
    Metal case that looks solid
    On / off button pleasant


    UTILIZATION

    "In appearance" is a classic distortion pedal, with its many Bonton and light on / off, except it has a look of facade amp with wood top, the white border and beige canvas type vintage amp, it's funny.
    The manual is quite complete and is all in English. It may repel the......

    UTILIZATION

    "In appearance" is a classic distortion pedal, with its many Bonton and light on / off, except it has a look of facade amp with wood top, the white border and beige canvas type vintage amp, it's funny.
    The manual is quite complete and is all in English. It may repel the anglophobes and neophytes, with all its technical terms but the pedal is very easy to use and insert examples of settings will give you a tiny glimpse of what this pedal can do ...
    For my part, I got a good sound pretty quickly because I had already a clear idea and the purchase was not done randomly.
    However, there may be a bit disappointed or surprised at first but we have to tweak the knobs in all directions and all try to better grasp and use it better. It is preferable to simply follow the examples of manual ...
    The sound quality of this pedal is undeniable.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sounds are particularly effective and reliable. By the Character and cons with high gain, the sound becomes very mushy. The knobs are very, very, very sensitive and we need to know (it even says in the manual) to lessen the treble too present, do not necessarily lower highs. As with all pre amps there ...
    For simplicity, we put less of character, more sounds are crisp, clacking. More lifts his character, the sounds are more aggressive but have this annoying tendency to become mushy, but it is probably more or less up for it by playing with the low, mid, and high drive.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use since April 2010 and I am very satisfied.
    I wanted a sound very typical American, with harmonics and the grain so special that goes well with my guitar. Lacking the means to acquire a double or triple Mesa Rectifier and knowing that we are sometimes disappointed to eventually do not have the sound we waited, I pulled over this simulator and I do not regret it.
    Used with a Fender Stratocaster Tom Delonge and a Hot Rod Deluxe limited edition customized, I have the sound I needed even if it seems unlikely at first.
    In short, a great pedal that needs to be tamed and that is what it's worth.
