Its $53 + $27 in shipping. If they could only figure how to ship it for cheap
it's a straight clone of the Fender with no improvements. I'm not particularly interested tbh.
You required yourself into a very small hole.Yesterday night I wanted to sit in bed with my guitar and practice a song while I watched some TV. I own an Axe FX 3, I used to own an Helix, an HX Stomp, a Quad Cortex, a Fender Mustang Micro... none of them do 100% of the job I would like a product like this to do, the way the old Korg Pandora did.
- The various modelers require too many cables, are awkward to use in a situation like a couch.
- Mustang Micro sounds like crap for high gain and with hot pickups. Doesn't have a tuner. The UI is absurdly hard to read and doesn't have a phone editor. The jack is awkwardly placed and doesn't plug in some guitars I have like my Ibanez S.
- Boss Headphones are too expensive and.. it's boss.
Requirements (just to be crystal clear about what "old Korg Pandora" means...)
This seems like a wide open market for someone like Yamaha to make a winning product, but nobody seems to have caught on. Am I missing something?
- battery powered
- small (can fit in pocket / gig bag front pocket
- silent / headphone practice
- good high gain sounds
- phone connectivity for editing
- can play music from an external source, ideally wirelessly but onboard storage could work
- has metronome or drum machine integrated
Yeah possibly, but I believe it's not such a strange set of needs really. Boss made a product for it, i would buy it if they were even minimally competent at software. I'm looking forward to the Nux pro.You required yourself into a very small hole.
I use a RP200. It’s cheap and sounds incredible through headphones. Good luck.
Nah, why bother with bad sounds. I'm just a few months away from a very likely solution. I'm not in a hurry.Still going here?
This sounds less like ‘silent practicing’ and more like nailing other people’s tones in the songs you are learning, under headphones, wirelessly. (?)
Again, ‘practicing’ can be done unplugged on the sofa. So I don’t get it. Other than that, plug into your DAW and deal with wires under headphones man.
I use the regular NuX MightyPlug to practice along to, works great. I even uploaded a lot of backing tracks with drums and bass (and even vocals) to Dropbox and just jam along to those. Works a treat.Nah, why bother with bad sounds. I'm just a few months away from a very likely solution. I'm not in a hurry.
Exactly, I'm waiting for the Pro version to get to market. On paper looks perfect.I use the regular NuX MightyPlug to practice along to, works great. I even uploaded a lot of backing tracks with drums and bass (and even vocals) to Dropbox and just jam along to those. Works a treat.
Pricey, and not Dunlop. Too rich for me, but I'm glad it exists:A bit of paraphrasing going on there. As I recall his dad told him there was "no future in music" when he was very young (pre-polaroid), only to later jokingly ask why he was wasting his time with that electronics stuff (Rockman) when he could be making another record. Speaking of the rockman I still hope some day Dunlop does something with that brand other than the Guitar Ace headphone amps. At least a preamp pedal or something based on one of the more advanced units.
When you click the "Brand: GOAT" link on that page, you get very interesting results.Pricey, and not Dunlop. Too rich for me, but I'm glad it exists:
Given how complex the rockman stuff gets internally the price honestly does not surprise me.Pricey, and not Dunlop. Too rich for me, but I'm glad it exists:
True, and why it's unlikely there will ever be a sustainor pedal. That thing was packed full. Even with much smaller & cheaper modern surface mount construction, it's a beast that I'd bet would cost $800-1000.Given how complex the rockman stuff gets internally the price honestly does not surprise me.
