Ah, sorry for bad link. This should work:



...I've been with Matchbox Twenty and Rob Thomas for a long time. Was in Rod Stewart's band for a bit in there and worked with Bono and Edge as a guitarist for Spider Man, Turn Off The Dark.
Best,
Matt

I own many amps but for this tour I'm using a new-ish Vox AC30 Custom Classic and a Fender Twin '65 reissue (for my pedal steel).

Makes sense to me. I'm running some similar drives into my AC30TB and my Magic Brit MK2 (AC15 style).

Out of interest how do you use the Plimsoul compared to the Timmy. Is one lead, one for rhythm or do they get combined?

I had been doing the OCD (v.4) and Timmy thing for a while and I used to stack both very effectively for a huge sound. Now that I've replaced my OCD with the Plimsoul (I love being able to blend the even and odd harmonics via the stage 2 knob), I don't need to ever have both on at the same time as Plimsoul gets me there by itself. Now I use the Timmy as a dedicated mid gain sound.

matt... gotta ask....

why do so many touring pros use the DL-4? is yours modded?

i love the things that pedal does... but it doesn't cut it for me in a bar band... the volume drop and tone suck are unbelievable...

and every time a discussion about the DL4 starts around here... people say "well, all the pros use it!" but nobody can ever answer why....

btw... very cool gigs...

Welcome Matt ! I think we might have sold a bunch of cable for your Rack Systems rack. Was that for you? Great to see you here !

Matt, I saw Rob Thomas on the Something to Be tour in like, 2006, and your pedal steel solo on I Am an Illusion blew my mind. You rock.

boldaslove1977, You raise a good question there. I agree there is volume drop. There is also an audible break in sustain if you engage or disengage a switch while holding a note or chord which rather annoys me. In smaller boards, I actually prefer the Echo Park. I suppose the reason I'm using it for this particular tour is the functionality and ease of use. I've minimalized the volume drop by putting in the effects loop of the AC30, and I like the handiness of having 3 presets ready to go and a dedicated tap button. To my knowledge, there is no other pedal on the market that does that. Yes, there are better sounding delays out there and if I was doing a gig that was more delay intensive, I would consider something else, but for my tour purposes, the DL4 is the most convenient.

i always used to say the same thing about the 3 pre-sets, tap and ease of use.... until.......

i was actually have a conversation about this with someone last week... when they told me about the tc flashback x4... aka the DL4 killer. it just hit stores in the past week. i just gut it a couple days ago so i've only had a few minutes to play it... but this is the delay pedal i wish i had years ago. no volume drop... no tone loss... killer sounds... and it's actually even easier to use than the DL4.

Here ya go Bazaboy33:



Whoa! Love that Flashback X4. I actually did a custom Toneprint for T.C. right before the original Flashback came out. Wow, this looks like a winner to me. Gonna have to get my hands on one. Thanks for the heads up there boldaslove1077
