  1. Any thoughts on which of these multi-fx are better? Advantages/disadvantages? Any experiences with either would be greatly appreciatted. Thanks. :)
     
  2. If you do a search you will find heaps of threads about those two multifx pedals and also the zoom

    I have the digitech bp-200. The main reason i bought it was because it had lots of effects but also a built in drum machine. The drum machine is good. The effects are alright takes a fair bit of work to make a good sounding effect esspecially wah sounds. It is a bit noisy through my amp as well.

    Its a good buy if you want to try some new effects but if you only want one a two effects buy stomp boxes/

    If you have any other questions feel free to ask

    I have a Pandora. Cool box, with lots of features, and it's reasonably easy to figure out. There are some things I wish it had, though:

    1) A footswitch jack. It's easy to get around this, though... provided your effects loop has a blend control, run the output of the Pandora through one side of an A/B box, then to the effect return. Punching the button takes the Pandora out of the equation.

    2) The power switch is too easy to move. I've already run down a set of batteries because the thing turned itself on when I put it away.

    3) It pops when you turn it on and off.

    4) If the batteries die, you get no signal at all. Dumb. It should default to pass-through so you don't go quiet in the middle of a gig.

    5) I wish they'd put the patches in some sort of order (like alphabetical). It would make finding your favorite patch a whole lot easier.

    It might sound like I'm really down on the unit, but these are all just nits. I get some good sounds out of it, and I like it a lot.

    They hardly compare.
    The PX-4B sounds much better and has way more functions, but it's painful to use live.
