line 6 m13
Anyone here using the Line 6 M13? I did a search and didn't get any results. I'm considering getting one of these. It's either the traditional pedal board or this. Tired of having my pedals laying all over the floor taking up space.
I currently have a compressor, NS-2, TU-2, Bad Horsie, RAT, Digitech Whammy, Boss DS-2, Phase 90, and Line 6 DL4. If I get a M13, I'd probably sell the Phase 90 and DL4. Probably keep the rest until I really have lots of time with the M13 to compare to the originals before selling them.
I've read really stellar reviews, and some nasty ones. Since I would depend on my amp's tube distortion, the distortion sounds aren't a make or break for me. I'd be using the distortion/overdrive models most likely as a boost for leads with my amp. I'd be getting it predominately for all the other goodies. One forum I found said they have had some serious problems with the buttons breaking within a week. Sounds like a quality control issue there. But, many, many reviews that said the thing is solid as can be and sounds great. I found one review by an analog pedal builder who said he was so impressed he couldn't tell the difference between many of his actual pedals, so he'd put some up for sale.
Just trying to research before buying, so what do you guys know about this thing?
