The VG-99 is a truckload of guitars in a single package
Not only does the VG-99 have great effects, distortion, echo, chorus, etc. and great amp emulation - it also models different stringed instruments. Bass, acoustic guitar, dobro, les paul, strat, tele, dan-electro, banjo, mandolin, SITAR - and to top it off, gr300 analog guitar synth. With two parallel effects chains and individual tuning for each string in each chain, the sound of the 12-string acoustic patches is amazing. I use the BOSS RC-50 looper when I perform, and the VG-99 complements the looper perfectly. I can get authentic bass, any guitar I can imagine, and vintage synth all with one guitar. If I get bored with that, I can hook my AdrenaLinn III up to the guitar out, and attach a synth to the midi out.
I'm trying to conserve floor space, so I appreciate that a double footswitch and a continuous controller pedal can be used with the VG-99 as an alternative to a full midi control pedal. And the D-Beam controller is a great dramatic effect. The APC-33 clamp let's you attach the VG-99 to a microphone stand, saving even more floor space.Read full review
