    Hey, I just ordered a Toneworks AX1B Multi-Effects pedal. After listening to some sound clips on the catalog's website, I figured it was the thing for me. Has anybody ever seen/heard/used/witnessed the use of the thing? Is it good, or did I just blow $120?
  2. I used to have one..
    it sounds decent, but it cuts away some volume and makes the B-string sound a little bit floppier..

    but the effects are very decent, no hissing etc like the * shiver * ...ZOOM... * shiver *

    For $120 it's a nice pedal.. ideal for effect-rookies, but once you get a little further with effects, you'll do the same as i did.. exchange it for analogue pedals.. they sound just a tad better.

    Well I guess I don't have much to worry about then, because I don't have a 5-String ( I use a Fender Jazz Bass, btw ), and I don't need too much volume anyway. Now if only my check would clear......
  4. I owned the AX1-B. I found it to be better then the Zoom stuff at that price range. I paid $135 for mine when they first became available. Good effects for the price. Great for headphone practice and it's got a good tuner, besides the neato effects.
    It's fun to play around with.

    I sold my Korg AX1-B because I needed money to support my desire for expensive handmade analog pedal effects. Delicious!
  5. I personally do not like a whole whack of fx's put into one box for not a whole lot of money especially when they are plastic. I would agree they are fun to play around with but they also have a load of sounds you would probably never use. IMO

    I only own 1 Korg product, and am very happy with it.

    My PX3B (Pandora).

    I have one and I think it's pretty decent for the price. The only bad this is the bypass, it really sucks the tone and volume.

    Interesting enough, I think it suffers from some of the problems that ALLIWANNADO describes; but, I still love it. It's an excellent practice amp or tool to have on hand to play along with CDs while not disturbing neighbors. This is not to mention the drum machine included, the tuner, the spatula, food processor, recording thing-a-ma-jigger, and all the other stuff it has. Cool toy.
