    This trick is hooking them up right. There are at least two videos on youtube which show how to do it right. Once it is hooked up right it works great. You have to use the send/return or you're not getting it right. Leave decay all the way down. The instructions are written in about nineteen languages. The English is written super small and hard to see. The diagrams they show how leave you scratching your head. Look at the video. The old European guy has a quick and easy to use painless video.

    Going through the latest Nashville players boards posted here, the pedal that shocks me the most to see in there, is... the Boss Wah (PW-something). You can hardly read a good review of it online and it can be found everywhere really cheap, and see how many pros use it! Impressed.

    That's why I rarely read reviews anymore. Even if I do, I usually take them with a grain of salt or less.

    The Bad Monkey has taken the place of the Screamer. Everything but the ISP and BM go through the FX loop, then the BM to the ISP to the amp. His Git tech, Jimmy Johnson runs everything from the backstage.

    Can that 1Spot be any bigger?

    I love the "Belle Epoch"! Might be my favorite pedal on my board?

    You hit it on the head. I was talking with Tom Bukovac who's been a big user of both our modded GE-7 and the XTS one over time and he said when they're layering parts in the studio with multiple guitars, it really helps carve out a frequency range that's not competing with the other parts on any particular track. I'm not sure to the degree he's using it in a live application.

    Tom is great.....inspiring player to say the least.

    Yeah it's safe to say the GE-7 is really a great utility box. Does so much. I saw a video with Tom and he was using the GE-7 live for more of a midboost. I think he uses it a lot more for various things in the studio.

    They have some very good effects. . .the reverbs and delays in particular are very good.

    I think I saw a shot of Joe Perry's a few years ago that had L6 stuff on it. Probably just for live work, but that's gotta speak volumes for it.

    With the Line 6 M-series, the whole thing in Nashville is the ability to have the smallest pedalboard with the most effects at a whim. Everything moves fast in the session world there and while you might be able to find better sounding single effects, the fact they are smaller yet hold SO many different effects is appealing. Couple that with a Timeline and there ya go. Most of the space comes from the drive section, so if they add a ton of single pedals it eats up more space.

    Most people in Nashville use them for everything but their dirt sounds. But mostly delay and reverb. I LOVE the verbs.

    But it comes down to a small pedalboard friendly format with as many sounds in it as possible as sessions there move fast. They can cut a ton of tunes in a short amount of time. They really can move quicker with a multieffects box and take up less space on the studio floor (plus all of their dirts/comps that take up a fair bit).

    The M series just offers good tones in one box on a pedalboard friendly platform. The G System and some of the BOSS/Digitech multieffects boxes are not pedalboard friendly. They ARE the pedalboard. These guys still like to use pedalboards rather than a switching system or MIDI. Hence, I think, the use of the M9s.

    Granted some of the bigger boards also have the other 2 big Strymon boxes (Mobius/BigSky), but a M9 and a Timeline will take you far.
