Finally after 2 weeks of waiting i got my Marshall MS-2 Pocket Amp. It plays like a dream and there is a decent enough sound out of it. I just need to get my cable cut down to length and everything will be grand.

I would never had expected this thing to be so loud! this thing is crazyily loud but i love it, i just fits in your pocket and although looks a bit big and heavy, its as light as a feather.

Rock On Laddies!

wait till about wednesday or thursday and ill tell you if the line 6 DL-4 is any good. from hearing one guy use it live it and hearing clips on musiciansfriend.com and reading the manual, it sounds great.

well, my dl-4 came yesterday and just a few hours ago i used it live.

i got it and messed around with it some. i had lots of fun with the loop sampler and messed around with the settings that are pre-programed from the start. after i erased them to start on my own settings, i got very confused. it is a little bit difficult to find the perfect setting on this pedal, but i suppose it would be the same with any other.

i got lucky and before i played, i saw a guy who owns one of these pedals. he was very excited to show me all the cool stuff it could do and he quickly grabbed my guitar and said 'check this out'.

We found about 6 settings that i REALLY liked. it was hard to only pick three. 2 of the settings kind of sounded alike and i didn't figure that there would be any reason for both of them. One was the Memory Man. while i really loved the way it sounded, i don't play like The Edge so i skipped over that one. One made your echo's sound like someone was working a volume pedal. That was especially sweet, but i didn't choose it because i couldn't throw out a faster lick because the volume would still be down.

I ended up with Analog With Mod., An echoplex type setting, and an echo with a kind of phase/flange thing on it that sounded really sweet, especially when played fast.

The virdict: this is the coolest, most versital delay pedal i have ever seen. it is kind of intimidating at first, but after a few hours with it, you will have the sounds you want.

I have the Digitech GNX 2 it has the Whammy in it along with every other expression pedal known to man. Three wah's, volumne, and the pedals also programable to any other function you could think of. Plus a few you wouldn't! :)

If I where going to be a rock star I would no dought have a different setup although for what I do, this pedal assembly does everything I could ask for and more.
