Comments about Vox ToneLab ST Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:
This is a great sounding multi-effects pedal, especially for the price. The controls are a little complicated to begin with, but it gets pretty easy after you read the manual and play with it for a few minutes.
I like the tube amp sound, and the presets based on songs such as FreeBird and Smells Like Teen Spirit. The pedal is nice and small, you can pack it in a suitcase or gear bag and transport it easily. The headphone out feature is great -- you can basically use this pedal as a practice amp without hooking it up to an amp. You can also hook it up directly to a PA system and it sounds quite good.
The only downside is that you can use only two effects (plus reverb) at one time.
Comments about Vox ToneLab ST Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:
This sweet little box (and it is REALLY compact) provides so many different amp models, cabinets and effects, it'll take me years to go through them all. Which doesn't mean it's hard to use. The interface is pretty intuitive and the manual does a good job of walking you through the steps. We perform with amps and without depending on the size of the room. The VOX ToneLab gives us the ability to get the same tones either way. And it is so amazing we both bought one. Fantastic device -- wish I would have had this years ago.
