    • Thanks Winston, I appreciate your concern. These are dark times indeed, we cannot control the world or others around us. Sad...   Currently I have a Boss Katana 50 Mk II and a Peavey Vypyr VIP 1 (with a 10" Scorpion speaker) AND a Digitech Element XP and Zoom G2 - both mulit-effects pedals.  I'm trying to get used to the Peavey Sanpera 1 pedal that allows selection of presets for the VIP 1 and has a switchable volume/wah pedal, I don't really like having it on the floor.  I can tolerate the 2 button (4 options) footswitch that goes with the Katana.    I just don't like having stuff on the floor. I've used the Digitech and the Zoom for recording but they sit up on the desk for that function and I just use one sound at a time.    For the past 20 years of so I've focused efforts on creating a range of tones by using my fingers and picks. I like a moderate level of gain, I can transition from fairly clean to a singing tone easlly. Once in a while I use a rotary speaker sound and try to decorate "Hammondish" and on a couple of tunes I like a single long delay. I have those things at hand.    It took me quite a while to dial in a few tones that I love on the Vypyr VIP, almost everything was set up for absurdly high gain when I got it. That's not my thing, at a certain point of high gain all guitars tend to sound alike.    So if I did buy a Boss GT-6 it would be because an absurd bargain fell into my lap. I have to much stuff already!!!! Cheers, Kuru
    • Yeah.  I got a chuckle out of that dude giving advice on how to pick up a female.🤣😎
    • There's no shortage of KBs on the market today encompassing every feature a musician could need or want in order to play music.    It really comes down to finding the *right* KB or combination of them (new or used) to cover all bases and ponying up the bread to buy them.    Of course, there's probably more fun in complaining about the shortcuts taken and real or perceived limitations of KBs instead of making it work. 😎
    • "Being able to power an outdoor gig without a noisy, unreliable generator is a benefit I hadn't even considered." While I love EVs, I feel obligated to point out that this is a false dichotomy.  I power my gigs with a quiet, reliable generator.
    • Before I respond, I feel like I should apologize to the Forum. I hadn't looked at the news before I'd posted, and might have held off for a decent interval before announcing my new toy, in the midst of tragedy. I'm truly sorry.   @KuruPrionz- Let me just say that if you find yourself contemplating a used GT-series processor, send me a PM. I'll tell you what my experience with them has been, and forward you some useful links.
