This was my first gig, a couple weekends back with the AmpliFIRE pedal. I sound checked with my normal rig for this gig and had planned to use AmpliFIRE specifically for a cluster of five songs in the set. After line checking it to be sure it was flying right, I ended up using it all night from start to finish. Sounded killer! I stay very busy gigging and my father had actually built this first set of patches for me. Although in the end I felt they were a little to gainy, the tone was very happening and it just felt great in my hands, very dynamic! Just a Plexi patch and the ability to kick in the overdrive and delay for leads. Foot-switch #3 was used for tap tempo's. I ended up using it on everything, including mandolin and with the lap steel. Very impressed with this red box!
