  • Hi guys
    can rack effects be used together ie reverb and delay or can i only use them on at once?

  • Rack Mount Effects are a pretty expensive route to go down George. You could achieve equally good results from separate Stomp Boxes for considerably less outlay.

    There is no reason however why you should not use Both Reverb and Delay etc.

    If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

  •  I got hold of a second-hand Behringer V-amp pro (same as the V-Amp models but is rack-sized and has a couple of extra outputs).  It's good and very versatile and I forget what I paid, but it was cheap on eBay.  Maybe ?70?

    You can use a wide variety of fx together, but you are limited to the combinations allowed by the unit (maybe you can get under the bonnet and cook up your own, but I haven't worked out how).  Using your example, reverb is an effect all on it's own and can be put on top of any of the other effect combinations.

    Stomp boxes are a great way to get exactly what you want although two or three could easily cost the same as I paid for the Behringer .......

    Why do you ask?  Do you particularly like the idea of rack-mounted kit?
    I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?
