I have, after a very long time, found a replacement for the sound I used to get with the Boss ME-10. Since it 'died' I have been most unhappy with the sound I was achieving through a P.A.
I purchased Boss's replacement for the ME-10, the ME-50, and basically it's junk, door stop material, almost completely useless.
The 'sound' I was after was a setting on the Pod 2.0 which makes my guitars almost talk with expression, this is a very good thing, especially for me.
I have tried both the Stratocaster and the Ibanez (which was almost a complete loss live) through the Pod and the sound is exemplary.
Lets get on with the playing now that the sound is good.
