The pedal is great and versatile.
Incredibly well built. I don't tend to be a "modeling" type of person, but they knocked this out of the park - and you can hardly beat the price for a swiss army knife type of tool.
I own both the mini and full version of this pedal, I have 3. The amp and cab sims are worth the price alone. The mod and ambience sounds are top notch. It even has multi effects setting with 2 at once (Distortion and Delay, etc.). The amp sims have separate out for the paired cab sim (quite good too) so you can run without to amp and with to house. I'm sorry they discontinued this box. It's much more powerful than the mini version but both sound the same. The issues arise when you have more than one XTOMP on a board and want to load a patch. If you just use one, it's perfect. You can use as many at a time as you wish but can only BT to one.
I bought this to explore new sounds without the individual cost of buying unique pedals. Once I found what I was looking for I went out and got those to build my chain, The unit sounds great and could absolutely be used as a permanent part of your board if you choose. Love the way the knobs change color to reflect whats loaded and which control is available. The software is super easy to use.
The effects and amp models are realistic. The sound is great. It stacks super well, I use an overdrive in front of it, makes the amp models come to life. Sound good either way! You can get cab sims on most amp models on the stereo unit by using the right (bottom) in.output jacks. I need more, because the sounds are awesome. Responsive. Hotone's modelling system is the best I've ever heard. The price, service, and speedy delivery were also great! Sam Ash is a great store, always high quality instruments, effects, and amplifiers!
I use this for practice and recording, and it's great! I've only scratched the surface of the available stomp models, and I must say the Hotone modelling technology is truly impressive. They are very very close to the original pedals and amps, close enough for most practical purposes. I have the stereo unit, and and contemplating getting another, possibly two additional mono units. The reason is these pedals sound so great, I wish to use more than one sound at a time, or switch between them quickly. Great product, great price, and great service! Thanks Hotone and Sam Ash. PS, I've been a Sam Ash customre since the 80's when I would visit the Manhattan showroom. They always get the best stuff!
Great product, very versatile and hard construction!!
As a hobbyist, you'll know no limits to the sounds offered by the Xtomp. As a performer, you'll need to designate your pedal with that sound effect that turns you on. You can add more Xtomp pedals if you feel compelled to make expanded use of the sounds offered in the Xtomp library. That is to say, changing effects on the fly is cumbersome . This process is app dependent. That said, hats off to the developers. Well worth the investment! Coolest pedal I've ever owned.
This pedal is awesome, you basically download an app on your phone and you can import any effects you want into the pedal. This makes an incredible addition to any pedalboard and comes packed with a bunch of different effects to transfer over. The best part is that once you have the pedal, they continue to release new effects so you basically have an entire store's worth of pedals at your fingertips. This is an awesome device from a great company.
