    it takes a real talent to approach an instrument to be able to play the nuances of a differnt instrument and pull it off properly , I have a roland GR55 guitar synth , it has the sounds but unless you approach the playing like the intended instrument , its hard to pull off , cool video I liked it alot , clever playing and brilliant approach.

    I recall reading many years ago that Brian May did something similar, supposedly wove a broken guitar string through the strings on the guitar solo of The White Queen, sounds kinda sitar-ish

    I do quite a few steel guitar things on 6 strings...no pull benders, but a volume pedal is pretty necessary.

    interesting... that might work better since you kind of have to bend the paper clip to make 'soft contact' with the strings. will have to try! thanks

    I have the B9 pedal, and my bass player loves when I use it. Funny thing is, it's kinda cool, but he really loves it, and it has an intermittent problem where it lights up, but doesn't work, no sound, it may go a few days, then it's back on. We have a big show this weekend, and at practice last night I went to use it, and it didn't work. I just laughed at it, then he noticed I wasn't playing it, I motioned that it wasn't working, and he lost it. "Aw c'mon man not now!" I belly laughed at him. I could care less if it was on my board, I reached down, and pulled the power cord out, and back in, and it started working.

    My B9 does that - fire up the board, pull out the dc connector to give it a kick and then it just works - am looking at a bigger psu for the board to see if that fixes it (its maybe not enough startup current along with everything else to fire it up)

    For some reason, now the police use both sounds. It sounds like a sitcom when i hear the american siren sound.

    I think it sounds like the American siren when it's farther away.

    I think (to me) I sound like a banjo or mando when I capo up high on a couple songs.

    I'm using the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2, I figure that would be enough, but yeah, I'll keep plugging, unplugging until it finally goes, or I get sick of it...lol.
