Two quick things:
I've had a Verbzilla for a couple of years now,
and never quite gelled with it. The main reason
being that I can always hear some sort of
annoying digital quality to the effect. It just
sounds crispy to me for some reason, and I'm
normally pretty forgiving when it comes to
digital dirt. Also, I've noticed some tone suck,
especially when the trails setting is turned on.
Obviously though, YMMV.
Second, I've also got a Behringer RV600, which is
a dead-spot-on clone of the Verbzilla. It
probably costs about 1/3 of the Verbzilla price,
and I'm sure you can find Behringer all over
Norway. And while I haven't done a side-by-side
comparison (my Verbzilla is back in storage in
the US, while the RV600 is here in Japan) other
people have. And judging from my memory, I'll
vouch that the Behringer is a 99% faithful
replica of the Line 6 box.
If you're in doubt at all (or just looking for a
great bargain at ~¤35) get the Behringer, check
it out, then spring for the regular pedal if you
"Image is blasphemy. Text is heresy. The spoken word is a lie."
