    Sounds like it could be worth a look. I think I'm more interested in the 3 new heads. I love my TD650, but real curious as to what they're putting out.
     
  6. i wonder what the other new black label pedal might be.
     
  7. Two new pedals? Did I miss something?:meh:

    That would be pretty cool. Looks like one of the heads is gonna be a Classic 160. Doesn't give the size of it, but calling it a "bass-amp-to-go" leaves me thinking it could be a nice lightweight amp, and that it'll be the smallest amp they make.

    I'm kinda crossing my fingers for an all-tube head. Not that I'd be able to afford it anytime soon. They could call it Sleipnir. But I guess that name would be better suited for an 8x10 cab...
     
  10. From what I've seen and read, it does seem like a small (both in size and power, at 160 Watts) and portable head.

    I'm not so sure. That name could work well for an amp with eight valves in it too! :)

    And more on topic: I'm sure that the MetalDrive has a potential of becoming a popular pedal in the metal crowd, but personally, I'm more curious about the other pedals they're coming out with. Whatever they are.

    cool. i'm thinking about getting a distortion/overdrive pedal, but then the problems start. i did searches and what not but i didn't find the info that i'm looking for. what's the difference between an overdrive and a distortion pedal? there a literally thousands of distortion pedals out there, but how do i know which one is for me if i can't try them all? i'm really curious about the ebs valvedrive pedal because it's got a valve, passive tone controls and can be used as a preamp for recording. i don't need chainsaw like tones, more something full and smooth. any suggestions? is there a point to get a pedal which is vlve based and has passive tonecontrols if 'im plugging into a valve amp with passive tonecontrols (TE V6)?

    Distorsion, eh? :D
     
  13. if you use an all-tube(valve) amp, I don't see much need to get a tube pedal OD. In fact, a clean boost is probably as good as most ODs in your case!

    I agree, I have yet to find a tube pedal that I love through any of my bass amps [they are all tube amps], it always sounds too muddy, and coming from me that is saying something.

    +1 a booster to push the tubes into saturation sounds fantastic!
     
  17. Want tube tone? Get an all tube amp. Too heavy? Hit the gym.

    I said that is all I have, I have 4 tube amps and my day job involves lugging around beams and hardi pannels.
