Hard to say... I haven't used any others (Strymon, Eventide) in that price range to compare it to. I got it new for $345. It sounds great and has some unique effects. Very customizable. I have it synced to the DAW MIDI clock but I wish I could set the BPM like on the Nemesis. The app is necessary to really get into all the settings. It's nice having everything all laid out and accessible on the screen, and I'm already using the computer for recording.Ventris: worth it?
I have since upgraded the Pro Tone Pedals delay to a Way Huge Echo Puss. Although the volume boost on the Pro Tone could be useful, the modulation and tone adjustment on the Echo Puss made it take the place on this board.View attachment 105357
I use this one with my Mesa Mark 525.
guitar > Russian Pickle fuzz > VHT Valvulator buffer (mounted under) > output A to Strobostomp HD > Decimator II G-string guitar input
buffer output B > The Depths vibe > Crybaby Junior > 805 overdrive > Mark 525 input
Mark 525 effects loop send > Decimator II G-string Decimator input > Pro Tone Pedals delay > Walrus SLO reverb > Mark 525 return
One output from the buffer acts as a key input for the Decimator II G. Muting the StroboStomp engages the Decimator gate in the loop. The board is a Pedal Train Classic 1 and there is a rear mounted Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus along with the VHT Valvulator. It makes for a heavy board. I also have the Pedal Power giving a bit of voltage sag to the Ruzzian Pickle fuzz and a slight boost to 12 volts for The Depths vibe and the 805 overdrive.
How do you like the MXR chorus? I had one, but just couldnt pair with it. Ended up with TC Afterglow. Maybe its the settings I used, idk.
I haven't got to test it extensively yet, but I will say that it seems to be a more subtle Chorus than some of the others I've tried. I have a Source Audio Gemini & it gets really wet & that's the sound I enjoy. The MXR build quality is fantastic like always.
That's fucking brilliant!Mock up. I’m gonna try to swap in an SD-1 into the black and white custom enclosure if I can make the control scheme fit. The Joyo is getting replaced by something. Hopefully a guv’nor or swollen pickle. I bought the “board” at a thrift store. It’s a desk organizer and it’s rather sturdy. I’m liking it a lot for this purpose.
I had the MXR a long time ago. It was fine but i sold it fairly quickly. I like the Boss better (I can tell because I bought a 2nd one for my other pedalboard).How do you like that Boss Chorus? I almost bought one but I went with the MXR Analog Chorus instead.
