  1. Yes the Dallas Treble booster would be a very good addition, Tony and Brian May amongst many others have used it.
  2. As far as I know Tony Iommi Still uses the Parapedal, watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgLkqELGBf8
  3. Two new pedal models I would like to see added to the HD 500 are Fulltone OCD and Tycobrahe Parapedal Wah. I wont be holding my breath though.
  4. I have tried the blue comp with the Plexi, I will give the Engl a try, thanks.
  5. Thanks, I will give it a try.
  6. Does anyone have any good Stoner/Doom tones for this unit similar to an Orange Thunderverb?
  7. Thanks for the reply, I will give the Coulordrive and Q filter a try, what were you amp and effects settings? I have been getting fair results with the Overdrive pedal which is supposed to be a DOD 250 Sim, fair results, but it lacks edge. I am new to the HD500x so I am still finding my way around, I will have a look for the rangebastard.
  8. Hi, I am trying to get a tone close the basic tone on the first five Black Sabbath albums. During this period Tony Iommi was using a Laney Supergroup head boosted with a Dallas Arbiter Treble Booster. The closest thing to the Laney on the HD 500 is probably the Plexi, any ideas which of the pedals would give a boost similar to the treble booster? or has anyone achieved a good Sabbath tone in some other way? There is very little in Custom Tone, and to my ears they don't come close to the Iommi tone.
  9. Thanks for the replies guys, pretty much answers all my questions, love the tone of this unit, it really has blown me away with the quality and I have only been playing with it since the weekend.
  10. Where are all the amps that are present on the Pod X3? the X3 had all the expansion packs, Metal Shop, power pack, and effects junkie ect, do I have to buy the expansion packs to get them on the HD500X? are the packs even compatible with the HD500X? Its a great unit, but it would be better with the other models included on it.
