Hey guys, instead of getting a bunch of pedals for my amp, I was thinking of upgrading amps altogether and buying a Vox Valvetronix VT15 or VT30 with the 5 button footswitch. Do you think this is acceptable?

It's got tons of effects and dedicated reverb.. just no wah :(.

My friend has the VX15. Decent little amp!

I'm thinking about buying a looping pedal for my kid for Christmas.  Budget ~$300.   I could be talked into spending more if there is a compelling reason, though I'd prefer not to if I don't have to.

Anyone got a recommendation or a horror story?

So I bought a loop pedal and I'm entirely unsure where it belongs in my effects chain. Are there important things that I have to keep in mind when using it? Distortion and the like?

Put it last or near last. I run my two delays after my looper.

Yeah I was thinking the same, thanks. I would have just tried it, but all my gear is in the practice room so I only have an amp to try it out with. First impression: this thing opens up a whole new world of awesomeness! Now I can finally play my songs the way they're meant to be played.

So I think imma buy a Barber Dirty Bomb when I get a job and start making bank.  I was so stoked when I found out the guitar shop in town sells Barber gear.

Glad this thread got resurrected, so I can tell everyone that I bought one of these


Will let you know how ridiculous it is when it comes in the mail.

I think Jon (Cernunnos) just got one of those, too.

Right now I'm kinda lusting after the new Malekko Chicklet reverb. About the same price as a Holy Grail.

Yeah, but as it is it just has two settings: "Dismember" and "Off".

The one i got was a bit simpler than that(not the deluxe), but very awesome. It sounds good as a straight up delay and also makes some very strange noises.

I want a Geiger Counter but it costs as much as my guitar : |
