Stick with DOOM!!!!... or give it to me...
i'd say stick with the board of doom. it may be heavier and bigger but i like to have the individual pedals to be able to swtich around order and tweak individual parameters.
just my $0.02
Seriously, your pedalboard of doom is rather dreamy. If you ever part with it, I'll give you $10
stick with the pedalboard of doom and buy me the VBASS!
but you could get $15 from me!!!!
Pedalboard Of Doom vs V-Bass vs POD XT Live
I can see that as being a problem. And I wish I had your problem.
The problem is that I'm now a singing frontman bass player, so I need to make things simpler at the gig. I can't be tweaking settings between songs because I need to deal with the audience then. Also, the board is so big I rarely use it at home because it covers half the spare floor space. And it's now the biggest and heaviest part of my rig (or at least the most cumbersome) since getting a lighter amp for my rack. Plus I'm looking to swap out some of the pedals and replace with others, which requires entering rewiring hell... It does sound great though...
Any feedback on the multi-FX monsters?
get a vbass then!
wow. that is one of the nicest boards i've seen.
Doesn't the V-bass require you to use some sort of additional pickup installed onto your bass? (maybe that was something else?)
I'm guessing you're willing to sacrifice some effects that you you have right now, that arent on any multi effects, like the Unibass, and fancy delay modes...
i guess the natural thing to do would be to find out what effects you require from a multi effects board, and try it out yourself. but man, that board you ahve is really sweet. You could probably swing a straight trade for a used Line 6 Pod XT Live with just that Deep Impact, and sell everything else for a net profit.
(give me that unibass for free!)
I can vouch for the PODxt, but you may not need all the amp/cab modeling. But, since you have a wonderfully clean setup right now (PLX into your Acme's), you might want the modeling. In my mind, there's no better cabinets to really show what the PODxt can do.
The effects are totally useable, flexible, and tweakable, and do a stellar job at recreating the real thing.
I would suggest keeping the Deep Impact, though, because even though the PODxt has some great Mutron and synth sounds...they aren't Akai.
edit: I've also never been much of a fan of all-in-one floor-based units. Way too much bending over, and you WILL be tweaking everything in either the VBass or PODxt Live. Get the PODxt Pro and the FBV Shortboard.
Are you insane?
I'd keep that board. That thing is sick bro!
The bonus of the V-Bass over the PodXT are the bass models. You have your J, P, MM, etc. along with some amps, cabs, and effects.
If I had to part with that board I would go the V-Bass.
I reckon I can buy either the line 6, or the v bass cheaply here. I'll buy it send it too you and you just send your board to my mum's house in wales. Everyone's happy! Stickwith the board stick with the board stick with the board stick with the board stick with the board stick with the board.
Ah, you're all old romantics... It really does look like the V-Bass can do everything I need, whilst requiring less tap-dancing and being much easier to lug. But is it voltage switchable? Really don't want to have to use voltage converters when I go overseas.
I'd say get the V-Bass and keep the pedals... if you can afford it (I don't know if you planned on selling your pedals). You'd regret it later, because that is a great board. I'd keep the pedal board of doom tucked away, and gig with the V-bass (as a vocal/bass guy).
You will get better tone out of it. Maybe just simplify your settings or your use of it. I would keep it for looks alone.
Keep the pedals! That's a killer setup, you could always get a looper to simplify things.
You haven't said so on this thread, but I see someone using your name has sold the deep impact on ebay
Looks like despite the pleas to keep it you've made your choice
