Re: Effects was Re: [Harp-L] Jason's organ

no offense to Richard who I think is a marvelous and amazing
musician/person but the sounds of his unit was wimpy compared to mine.
There is a place for such units but there is no way it can stand it's
ground vs a set up like mine or Jason's etc...

by "real" pedals I mean dedicated pedals.  The RP unit have sounds
that are trying to emulate other pedals and they are a watered down
version of the real deal ie; Boss DM-2  The RP octave patch was
nothing compared to the demonic death sound of my HOG.  If you're
going to lug around gear then a pedal board is no big deal.  To me,
the RP units are best suited to really small venues.

BTW- I deny the power of a real amp and minimal pedals... MORE is MORE
in this case. Bigger and better is the way to go for this stuff.
