So my good buddy/former band mate gigs in a Dead tribute band, covering Weir's slot. With my suggestions over the last 7 years, he had built a big Pedal Train board full of prime pedals, plus a Hard Truckers cab, and has been powering it with a Mesa TA15. The rig sounded and recorded beautifully, and got tons of compliments on his tone at gigs. A recent health issue got him thinking about the load in/out, setup time, and stage real-estate it took up. So in one big selling binge, he dumped all but 2 of his pedals to fund an AX8, and plans to gig direct to board, plus a good stage monitor. Question for those who have switched, what will he miss, if anything?
