gitapik Posted September 22, 2021 Share Posted September 22, 2021 ...but I could use some talking through. I got the HX Stomp a little over a month ago. The idea was to have a travel companion for practice, recording, and jams. Took some time, but I've definitely gotten better at setting up my presets. Up until recently it was all about the headphones...and all has been going according to plan. I was (and still am) extremely impressed with the sounds and ease of use. Then I plugged the Stomp into my Quilter Micro Pro Mach 2. The 8" speaker serves well for electric/acoustic guitars as well as PA systems (Pat Quilter's a pretty smart guy). It sounds so good. Honestly: I don't get the "won't give you that amp in the room" phrase. The Stomp through that amp absolutely rocks the house. So here's my "big" board: The sounds are awesome, but the Mastermind, serious as it is, is nowhere near as intuitive as the Stomp. And there are a lot of wires to trace when there's a problem. And it's heavy and bulky to transport. Thinking of dismantling it and getting a Helix. Honestly never thought I'd say that. Total valve amp/stomp pedal guy who loves his sound (I don't play many covers). But I've still got a nice small board and could make another with a few of the pedals I'd keep (Semaphore Trem will never leave my side). It's just that the sound possibilities with these multi-effects modelers is far exceeding my expectations. So I know that, in the end, it's up to me...but I could use some talking through. It's a big step for me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
