No no no no no! In fact I’d say the MS series are at home live and in the studio, and, you can go as far out as you want, way beyond "traditional" it has a top end reverb algorithm, plus, you can chain loads together, plenty of emulations of classic pedals too, but you can connect as many effects as you like, until you run out of processing power.
There’s everything in there, and I’ve heard some amazing things too, it’s great because you can spend ages programming, and store for gigging, or, get really experimental and go really deep in the studio if you have time to mess around. I’d start off with the CDR-70, it’s so good, for what? £75?

Alrighty then! I better check it out.
Yes about $175 Cdn if you can find one. They seem to be out of stock.
Who else have you been telling about them over here? :D :D :D



I’ll just pass on this bit of research in case anyone else is thinking of getting one -
Seems there was a batch of them that produce a high pitched whine which you can’t get rid of. So if you buy one make sure you can return it, just in case.

Just googled this Line 6 Helix HX Effects Multi FX Pedal, and I'm well impressed - up to nine stereo effects can be dialed in at once, and street price seems to be current around £369 inc VAT.

When so many single stomp boxes can cost you £150 and up, and come in mono, this is a real bargain, and Line 6's reputation for their modeling of stuff like silicon/germanium drive is also excellent :thumbup:

All of the Helix range is very good indeed. I sold a number of original pedals once I'd A/B-ed the simulations to my satisfation.

But like any digital processor, it's essentially software in a reassuringly 'not a computer' box. With that in mind the Helix Native plug-in is even better value! ;)

I got my CDR70 from Amazon for £75 GBP, currently they seem to have crept up a bit...

I haven’t had any issues, but thanks for the heads up.

Loads of guitarists now using these digital pedals, I've never once been able to identify the difference at a gig.
But I am the only guitarist I know who's using a digital guitar with analogue pedals! :)

So you’re the guy who shows up to the gig and strums his ipad.

That's probably my most-used gigging guitar. :)

Curses Drew!
I almost managed to forget I need one of these and one of the latest electrics.
Hmmm maybe if I live on canned beans and sardines for a few months (years?) I can afford them.
