    Weasel, I gotta swerve back to the tone topic for just a sec before we go back on the Must Have Effect topic, because the weirdest thing just happened...

    As I was sitting here reading your reply, my Zune (on shuffle) fired off a live bootleg of Danny Gatton playing Sleepwalk. Then the next thing it randomly (sorta, there is an algorithm) played was a studio version of Sleepwalk by Larry Carlton. LOL No contest, but a hell of a contrast!

    Danny's tone is big plate of spicy nachos, and Larry's tone is Cheeze Whiz on a Saltine. I've always hated that ES-335 + Orange Squeezer + clean Princeton Reverb sound :( Makes me think the next song in the set is the theme to Threes Company LOL

    I'd still say technique effects tone... for instance if I shifted my picking hand back toward the bridge the fundamental tone of the notes gets more trebly, and thinner... if I shifted that hand down over the 12th fret and play the same note, the fundamental note gets bassier, rounder and fuller... I used a technique to affect my tone. To me, tone is something I hear, technique and gear are what produces the different tones. I think. I always reserve the right to be completely wrong :razz:

    Tone is not all in the fingers, I think equipment plays a big role in how you sound. The music you make on the other hand is all up to you and everyone does that differently.   A good player can emulate anyone, case in point if you didn't know better would you think this had the actual players in it ?

    I think only you can answer the "Must have effect" question. It's really up to what you need or want. I don't really have an answer for you as I keep it uber simple. Guitar --> wah -- > amp (w/ a touch of reverb).

    What I want Ias far as an effect's would be delay, reverb and an eq.

    I am one of those minimalists when it comes to effects but I sure like the keeley compressor. I should say I don't own one but have used them and love the way they sound. It is on my current wish list.

    [/quote]I would like a sound demo on one of these and see how they sound, I would go to youtube but I'm sure the sound has been edited so many times before it gets uploaded.

    I just re read your initial post.. the thread got side tracked a bit and my initial answer could have been a little more helpful. So, here goes.. Based on your original question, I would drive you towards the Cube 60. (note: i love the Roland amps!) It's got independent 'verb and Chorus effects with the addition a few other choice effects as well as very good amp modeling (IMO). :)

    [/quote]I know, I was thinking about getting the 60 and the batt powered street cube when I start street busking.

    That way I will have all my effects and an amp as well.

    the manual says you will get about 20 hrs time on a set of batteries. i contend that it is longer than that. i dont ever use the power adapter (you wont belive this but my dog ate it :oops: )

    O0 on the micro-cube! There is something about those little guys that Roland got right. I'm talking about the original 'cubes, i have not played or heard the newer models however they look even more versatile.
