for years now I've used rack based effects, controlled by midi. After a long, hard think, I've ditched the rack and bought a line6M13 stompbox modeller from Richtone. It's really opened up my playing and use of effects. plus it's got a looper built in.

Saves a fortune on buying the 100+ fx on offer and I defy anyone but the most anal to distinguish the sounds from the original pedals...

tap tempo tremolo, proper tape echo, several compressors, 9 wahs, amazing reverbs, 2 pedals can control *any* paramter, 144 patch locations in each of 4 groups. You can even route some effects straight into the amp, others via the amps FX send/return.

Practically, it's a perfect economical solution - 1 cable in, out to the amp one board fits all and it's slotted into both my rock, ambient and improv gigs with ease.

I'm convinced....

I have had a line6 dl4 delay pedal for years and love it but I have a Digitech RP355 all in one pedal that is just a little less gutsy than my boss analogue effects. Maybe I should check out the Line6 gear. Incidentally I find Native guitar rig 4 pc software very 'gutsy' and can often get more kick out of it on a guitar recording than micing my Wem or Blackstar combo's

I have the line 6 m13 for about a year now and I can honestly say it's a fantastic bit of gear. Johnny Marr is using the the slightly smaller m9. Nuff said

So that makes us 4 better than Johnny Marr - in a Tufnellian sense - good enough!

Johnny Marr is a legend

The Opening Salvo of ' What Difference does it make' the other night on This is England 88, just blew everyone in the room away.l

Nice one Nick, was thinking of getting the even smaller Line 6 M5, got a couple of pedals on my board that i'll probably only use once or twice when gigging (chorus & delay usually) was tempted to get the line 6 instead, i've got the Echo park delay that i usually have set to 'slapback' but sometimes use a longer delay, thinke the M5 would be perfect as i wouldn't have to mess around with settings mid set.
would love the m13 though if i had the money!
