Hi Aldo,

 

I don't have access to a decent camera and setup to do this properly, but I will say that even after trying out a lot of different pedals and effects units, I have always returned to the Digitech and it is still part of my guitar rig although I only use one setting now (number 7) for a blues tone into a Mesa Boogie Quad FX send and return back to the Digitech then out to a Mark IIA Boogie combo. The original Digitech tones sound much better that way and I would suggest that as a way to do it just keep the levels in the middle so you don't blow up your amp.............

 

 

It is a great unit for all kinds of guitar tones and for acoustic guitar recording and also for vocals although it isn't the quietest FX unit. It's relatively easy to edit as well.

 

Good luck and enjoy.

 

Regards,

 

David

He did but the best man was Mike from The Moody Blues, I don't know if it was Mike Pinder.

I have a question; Did not Tony Ashton marry a Swedish girl named Annie in 1969 with George Harrison being best man.

Sad to hear Tony Ash has gone, been out of touch with Haverstock Hill for quite some time, but will always remember good times in the Steeles, Haverstock Arms etc with him, hope Sandra is keeping well.
