Oui mais non
tuxy, 25.11.2020
Reçue aujourd'hui et renvoyée direct.

Je ne vais pas faire de remarque sur est-ce que ça sonne comme un Engl Powerball : il faut être réaliste ce n'est pas un ampli, donc non ça ne sonnera pas comme l'ampli éponyme.

Par contre Je m'attendais à une distorsion high gain ! Mais cette pédale (censée reprendre le channel lead 2 du Powerball) à moins de gain que mon Engl Gigmaster 30 head qui n'est pas réputé être high gain : cherchez l'erreur.

Powerball 2"Lead Channel in a Box"
J3101, 09.02.2020
Ich habe lange Zeit vergeblich nach einem Pedal gesucht,welches den Powerball-Leadsound erzeugt,aber bin leider nicht fündig geworden.Wäre alles nicht das Wahre gewesen,sondern irgendwie nur ein Kompromiss.Der Powerball 2 Amp ist mir mit seinen 21 Kg zu schwer und zu groß,aber endlich ist die Sucherei nun zu Ende.

Das Pedal ist sehr wertig gebaut,und macht einen verlässlichen Eindruck.Schon beim Auspacken merkt man,dass dieses Pedal einfach nur gut sein kann.Ich selbst habe noch nicht auf einem Powerball Amp gespielt,kann also nicht direkt vergleichen,aber die
Sounds aus Amp Sims oder Produktvideos sind schon verdammt identisch.Ich spiele eine Ibanez Iron Label mit DiMarzio Fusion Edge Pickups und gehe dann vom Powerball Pedal in ein Cab Sim-Pedal.Die Kombination ist für mich einfach nur genial und Metal pur.

Einen Minuspunkt hab ich aber dann doch noch auf Lager.
Nämlich das Volume Poti ist ein bischen schwach.Man muss wirklich
schon fast auf Maximum drehen,damit ein ausreichend hoher Pegel beim Cab Sim-Pedal ankommt.Wäre gut,wenn da nach oben noch mehr Reserven wären.

Bin aber trotzdem rundum zufrieden mit diesem Pedal.Einfach nur
empfehlenswert.

Tolles Zerrpedal
mikaspe, 28.02.2020
Da ich den Powerball Amp nicht kenne, kann ich das Pedal nicht mit dem Amp vergleichen. Jedoch bin ich mit dem, was das Pedal liefert, sehr zufrieden.

Die Bass-, Mitten-, und Höhenregler haben einen recht großen Regelbereich (laut Anleitung -7.5 bis +7.5 dB) und die Frequenzen sind gut angepasst. Die Zerre ist relativ brachial (was auch zu erwarten war), aber trotzdem durchsetzungsfähig und transparent. Von allen Zerrpedalen, die ich mal gehört und/oder gehabt habe, mein Favorit.

Super Sound
Player 123, 07.06.2020
Es ist zur zur Zeit mein Lieblingspedal, gespielt an einem cleanen MARSHALL DSL.
Auch bei hohem Zerrgrad nicht matschig. Die dreibandregler sind sehr effektiv.
