Hello there! I'm in the process of downsizing, I don't use effects too much but I like having the option to use an effect now and then. I have a Verellen Meatsmoke on the way, so I should be set for overdrive, and I'm thinking of adding one more pedal for the occasional chorus, synth, fuzz, octaver etc. A looper would also be nice. Before you suggest Zoom (which I respect and indeed offer great value for money), I don't know if I'm biased but I think I'd like something more high-end, as the rest of my gear is. I'm looking for studio quality sound. I'll try a friend's Zoom B3, but from samples many effects sound a bit harsh. I prefer to get what sounds best, because usually if I go for "value for money" sooner or later I'll start craving for something better so in the long run I tend to pay more, so I prefer to pay for the best from the start. So, I've read a lot of threads to see what's available and I'm leaning towards the Eventide H9. I'm looking for something that is true bypass, relatively small and sounds as good as it gets (for digital). I think it fits the description better than most... It's expensive, but I could swing it if it's the best option. Do you think it fits the bill? Would you suggest something else? Thanks!
