HEy man.Just found this thread. My wait is over. I signed up for a Constable and an OD/boost-pedal-to-be-named-later. I'm really leaning toward a Page, but before ordering, I'd like to pick this group's collective brain.
I've seen a few videos with Simon, and I think TPS guys, in which he shows the Constable INTO the Page. Sounded incredible. I'm fairly certain it was a regular Page, and not a DS.
But I've also seen a lot of discussion in which people put the Page out in front, before other drive pedals - and obviously before preamps and/or amps (e.g., the Constable).
So can people here in the know explain a little bit how well and how versatile the Page is before AND after the Constable? I know I'm buying a Constable for reasons outside the scope of this thread. I'm just trying to understand the pre and post pros and cons of the Page.
And also, among the versions, which Page pairs best with the Constable ... and why?
Does the Page DS work well before other pedals/preamps, or is that more just a Page thing?
And finally, for a sanity check, am I completely off base anyway? Despite Dan from TPS's glowing comments on the Page. Should I be looking for a different Kingsley pedal to feed that Constable? In which case, I'd be out of scope of this thread and dumped back into that 605 page mega thread.
Looking forward to any and all responses. Thanks in advance to anybody that chimes in.
First off, this is not the right thread. Post it here:
You'll get a better response. Trust me.
Secondly, different people will have different opinions, but I'd wager that most people with a Constable and a Page have tried Constable > Page....but then chose to run it some other way.
Right now I run an EQ pedal with volume maxed into the Constable to provide gain. It works well, and frees up the Page for an edge of breakup sound. Works well for me. It sounded great going Constable > Page, but was too much of a sacrifice in flexibility for me. I have a Jester Sizzle on the way (should land in Blighty imminently) and I plan on using its boost to run into the Constable. Maybe that'll be the way forward. Not sure. For now, I'm happy.
Also, I'd strongly recommend a double plexi Constable. You lose nothing, but gain a functional second channel. For the Page I'd get a Page TS. There's basically no reason to ever get a normal Page V2 in my book. The TS does those sounds and many, many more.
