Me doing a demo of my Digitech RP50 guitar effects processor. I pretty much go through some of the presets to show what it can do.
It was like $50 bucks new, so it’s a great deal for the money. The only minor problem, which I forgot to mention, is the fact that the switches for toggling effects are close together and it’s easy to accidentally go into Bypass mode by hitting them at the same time if you have big shoes on. Other than that it’s awesome. I’m playing my Fender Jaguar HH so you know. Enjoy!
The MXR ZW-44 Wylde Overdrive Pedal performs like Zakk. Whether on his groundbreaking work with Ozzy Osbourne or with his own Black Label Society, Zakk Wylde’s guitar playing is loud, tough, and relentless. Zakk’s take-no-prisoners attitude extends to his quest for tone, too. His signature ZW-44 overdrive pedal will turn your clean amp into a heavy, chunky, crunch machine. Or, use it like Zakk does and kick it in front of a dirty amp for a screaming, sustaining lead tone. 3 simple controls output, tone, and drive make getting up and running easy, so you can concentrate on your chops.
www.premierguitar.comPG’s Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the Tonic Amps room. In this segment, we get to check out Tonic’s Vapour head. The Vapour is tone machine for small to medium sized clubs with a 20 watt Push-Pull, class AB output section (EL84 or 6V6) utilizing a clean to mean single channel preamp. This amp can be tonally controlled with a Treble, Mid, Bass tone stack with a presence and bright switch. This amp will give you tremendous gain felxibility in both your volume control and pick attack. As opposed to using channel switching you can easily set up the amp and use the volume knob on your guitar as a gain control. This amp also features a 4-8-16 ohm impedance switch so that it can be better matched with your speaker cabinet.
