So to cut a very long story short, the collective answer to my original question seems to be best summarised as 'No.'

Although I did learn to use the plural after writing 'None of us,' so it hasn't been a completely wasted afternoon. Thanks, MOF.

These multi-sounds in one pedal all sound well and good, but the reality is that for live use, you'd probably be better off with two pedals that you like, as each pedal type will probably require different gain, volume and tone settings to get the best from them. So, probably useful at home if recording, but far less so for live use.

Of course for the money, even if you found one drive you really liked and stuck with just that one, then it's still a decent way to audition several pedals at the same time.

Unless in this context "none" is "not one", in which case...

Pedant alert, it depends on the context, 'none' can* be singular or plural. "None of us need a car" is correct and 'none' in this context is equivalent to 'not one', above quote is ambiguous I think so maybe it could be either?

* Google, I admit, was my friend here BTW so not being a smartarse.... well not much anyway :blush:

edit :- my Google obviously took longer than yours.....

That's kind of the idea. I am intrigued by the option to switch between decent analogue clones. And then use the one I like. If I ever play music that needs 101 different overdrive settings, there's a Line 6 M9 in the cupboard.

You've opened a wormhole in the generational feedback barrier. Like having our own kids and suddenly (all in one go) realising how intensely annoying we were as children and how much we owe to whoever put up with it, we are now faced with what we became as adults as our own words are reflected back to us with the confidence of an infinitely informed adult talking to a senile old codger.

It’s not easy pretending to be senile, old is easy enough. The trick is to use it to your advantage when necessary. :smirk:

Based on advice received so far ... no idea !

Probably sometime. I have yet to receive my recent global shopping: a pair of DT880s and some Bulldog pickups. The pickups are in a post office somewhere in Cape Town. I am not allowed to get them, because they aren't food or medical supplies. The headphones won't get dispatched until early June, apparently.
