Tone for days...


Actually the middle pickup is very clean clean sounding...not as boomy as the neck pickup, or as pingy/growly as the bridge pickup...middle pickups have a good blend of tight bass, sparkly treble, and a clean attack.

Nope.

I have a friend who used to have an older version of this that he loved.

BTW, my man I apologize I haven't had a chance to send the pedal yet. It was a crazy week and I haven't had time to get to the post office. I was going to send it from work, but they wanted 50 bucks for DHL.

I've got to do a bunch of stuff tomorrow, so I'll take it and do it.

Sorry.

Don't feel bad. I feel bad I haven't done it yet, but time was tight this week.

I didn't even have time to go the luthier's to pick up my SG that had to have it's cracked neck and headstock fixed.

Anyway it should probably only be about $15.00 to send it through the mail.

If you can find an earlier version it was pretty simple. It had effects built in, different beats and rhythm guitar patterns to solo over.

Yup.

The three things I like are these...

Quote:
100 Rhythm and Bass Patterns
The one hundred built-in rhythm patterns cover a broad range of styles that include rock, jazz, funk, blues and dance music. The PCM sounds used in these patterns produce realistic accompaniments that are fun to play along with. There are even Bass patterns that let you specify the key chord, so you can practice any style of music while listening to a full rhythm and bass line. Since you can use the effect programs at the same time as these patterns, this is a great way to practice your picking, improve your rhythm or develop your sense of pitch. You can also make Chain Pattern settings to combine up to sixteen different rhythm patterns.

Built-in Phrase Trainer
You can record up to 30 seconds from an audio source such as a CD, MD or MP3, and play it back repeatedly (looped) at a slower speed without changing the pitch. This is a great way to learn complex or rapid passages by ear, since you’ll be able to hear the phrase slowly. You can also record a phrase that you play yourself along with the built-in rhythm and bass accompaniment, and then practice soloing over the top of it.

Combine Your Playing with an External Source
You can connect a CD player or another external audio source to the AUX IN jack, and use the Key Transpose function to change the pitch of the song upward or downward by as much as one octave. The PX4D also contains a Bass Canceller function that erases the bass sound from an external audio source so that you can play and hear your bass along with the song.

yep I liked that built in phrase trainer specially. Im have read some reviews, they say its pretty good. Altough Im seeing its too "practice oriented". Not a lot of experimentation, but since I never practice I just play, it might be thing I should get.

gotta love that telecaster, altough I would put a maple fretboard not rosewood. And I love the color of the SG on the right.
BTW, why 2 SGs? are they any different?

I had the one on the right first and I liked it, but it got blown over at an outdoor gig in the guitar stand by a strong gust of wind and got kind of banged up. I was so bummed buying another was the only thing that made me feel better. I also wanted a backup that was the same because I frequently break strings (although not so much lately) and I like the idea of switching quickly to a similar sounding guitar.

The one on the left though has some serious mojo and tone. I actually like it the best.

Yeah, he said it's loud and I believe they're kind of dark sounding, so I'll be able to use my Dallas Rangemaster clone and dial in some serious Sabbath, Who, Cream tones with it.
