Pod VS Johnson
A while ago I wrote to the list and asked about the Pod and the Johnson. I
decided that I'd go for a total amp upgrade, and get a Line6 Flextone II
After a week of tweeking, I was unhappy. While I got some good , though
bassy, guitar sound, I use a Roland GR-30 Guitar Synth and I need
can produce a full range. I ended up totally ditching the guitar amp, and
running the guitar/synth into a Digitech 2112 tube preamp and effects
what's probably inside the Johnson Millinium amps, I would suspect.) and
directly through my JamMan and into a pair of Peavey KB60 keyboard amps.
It was like turning on a light in a dim room! The guitar alone sounded
better, and the synth sounds, well it was no contest.
I returned the amp to Haight St Music (who were VERY nice about it,
had it for almost a month and had missplaced my receipt and was beyond the
exchange policy) and exchanged it for a Roland MC-307 Groovebox. Very nice
little drum&bass machine, pretty much a full function sequencer with on
sounds. Lot's of them.
My two cents.
