    This thing is great. Compared to the Digitech Rp200 that I have, the distortions are much better. The RP200 distortions all sound way too processed. You don't get the subtle nuances in your playing like you do with the AX1500g. Also, the Korg unit simulates a tube sound much better. The digitech models sound very similar and the biggest difference between them besides price is features. Zoom effects don't even compare. This unit is also surpisingly extremely quiet. The fact that it is quiet, it has very close to "real-time"effects (as opposed to other processors) and that it is one of the only effects processors with an A/B switch (that can be used as a true bypass) makes this baby one of the best to use in a live situation. For effects themselves, you get a lot for what you pay for. However, I must concede that the digitech effects are substandard. However, when i use distortion on the digitech it is way too noisy, I get way too much feedback, and the noise gate kills the overall tone. Unless you really LOVE Boss effects, the most overrated effects boxes out there, I highly recommend not wasting your money for the ME-50 or GT6. Those processors only simulate those crappy boss pedals. Boss has not changed a thing since the 80's while other companies have continued to improve their products. that is why a lot of newer brands put out better products. If I were to upgrade, I would get the Line 6 XT Pedal because it has the best combination between features, good distortion/overdrive and effects. If you only want good effects for cheap, then i would get the Digitech GNX1.

    I love the sounds that this processor produces and after learning how to program it was very satisfied with it until it suddenly and for no apparent reason began changing programs on me in the middle of a gig. I could not get it to work properly after that even after the unit was repaired. It just was never the same. Get a Boss GT-6 (no longer in production) if you can find a used one and are doing a lot of gigging. It has the balls to take to the road and survive. I do love the flexibility of this multi-processor and it does have the sound just not interested in the embarrassment of playing a solo and having the sound change to something inapropriate during a show.

    Awesome

    By Wesley5150

    from North Carolina

    Everything I've read about AX1500G was good so I bought one and I was pleased. I use it mainly for the effects. The distortions weren't important to me since I use the overdrive of my amp, but they do sound good. It's easy to use and program and it seems to be constructed well. The only complaint I have is that I wish it was a little bit bigger so the pedals would be a little further apart. Other than that, I highly recommend it.

    Awesome toy!

    By guitardude-P1TLw

    from Undisclosed

    I've had mine for over 6 years and all I have to say is WOW! It's pretty darn good for musicians on a tight budget. The modulations and distortions sound just as good as the expensive processors. You just have to dedicate a couple of hours tweeking and adjusting until you get your perfect sound! I invested the time and the money and I'm so glad I did! Best processor for this price EVER! GET IT NOW!

    Great Pedal.

    By MAX O.D.

    from NISHINOMIYA-SHI, JAPAN

    When I first played it at the shop, I knew I would buy it. Great sound and easy to use once you learn how to get around the presets and go to individual. I can get pretty much any sound I'm looking for and have NO problems with it. One of these days I'll read the manual and figure out how to use the many effects that it's capable of.

    A Nice Pedal except..........

    By Tony-bT-cS

    from The Valley,VA

    Okay before I go ranting with the negative comments I will focus on the pedal's good points first. With it's metal construction it is a very sturdy and durable little piece of equipment, with no need of worry of getting knocked around a bit. As for editing and programming you could not ask for anything better. All knobs and buttons are easliy acessable. With its headphone jack you can practice without the need for an amp, which is great. A built-in tuner is always handy. Now, I have saved the worst for last. I originally purchased this pedal for the main purpose of direct recording into my Tascam Digital Eight Track Recorder. Although the clean sounds are pristine and clear, forget about using distortion/ overdrive. Something to do with the level control that makes that preset sound crackly and full of static and very brittle. Also the factory presets sound very dull. If you want a nice pedal to practice with and maybe even live, then this is the one for you. If you plan to do any direct recording and want distortion/overdrive you might want to try something else.

    Probably the best multi-fx...

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    ...at least, the best multi-fx for this price!I checked out a lot of the competition when I bought this (such as the Boss ME-50, the Behringer V-Amp) and this is better in quality and tone.There are many features, so it gets a good mark there, but I'm only giving it an 8 for two reasons:1. I don't like the wah sound very much- just a personal thing.2. This pedal is a little noisy with some amps/guitars.Quality-wise...well, this is a Korg product, one of the best manufacturers around, and this lives up to their reputation: fairly heavy, but not too bad, solid metal casing, the expression pedal feels solid, the stomp buttons can take a beating... very well built product overall, and like I said, it's not expensive.Now, I've given it fairly good review, but not top notch because it's a little noisy, and also it took me AGES to work out how to use the thing! I only recently realised I could edit the effect parameters (such as speed of the flanger) easily, having owned it for a year! I'm not the sort of guy who likes to read instruction manuals, but you really should for this pedal!One last thing: THE PRESETS SUCK! Ignore all the presets and get straight down to dialling in your own tones, because the factory presets are terrible!

    4 years of tone heaven

    been using this product for over 4 years now. i should retire it now but i still can't find anything to replace it. its the most versatile multi fx i've ever used. the only downside is the LCD screen in mine is starting to loose its brightness

    I Lo ve it!

    By A_Minor

    from Bay Area California

    I owned the AX1000 and Loved that. I upgraded to this AX1500 after a friend begged me to sell them my AX1000. After much research before buying both I found that no other brand offered as many simutanious effects at once other than this. The pre-programmed are actualy very impressive. Others I have used in the past have lacked in many ways. The cabnet sound is very accurate. The unit is very sturdy yet light weight and easy to take with you. There is nothing in this unit that I feel is lacking in terms of on stage, practice or midi interface. I have never had a single problem with either model #. Not one time has it failed to function properly or has it ever broken or cracked. Easy to use and operate. BUY IT! You will LOVE IT!

    Cool effects, poor loop

    I own this pedal and love the effects. It's easy to use and easy to plug and play right from the box. Saving custom effects and using some of the presets can be difficult at times, but reading the manual should help. The only thing I would change about the pedal is the built in loopstation. You can adjust it from 8 to 16 seconds, but you sacrfice quailty. Also, it always seem to run slightly off tempo because of an annoying pop at the end of my loops. It seems like it lags a bit at the processing. It might just be my pedal. Overall I love this thing. It's rugged and can be thrown in with a lot of equipment without worrying. The effects are great and there are lots of options.

    Amazing for the price

    By TPguitar17

    from CV california

    First off the sounds you can get out of this thing are amazing! Unlike a lot of modeling systems where alot of the tones sound the same. Their are only a couple on this that are like that. The distortion on it sounds very good. A lot better than an ibanez tube screamer. The best part about is useing it for recording. It makes recordinds sound so good! And you cant beat the price.
