Which would be easier? - Changing the velcro on my Pedaltrain Metro, or changing the velcro on my pedals?

Recommended Posts

Basically I've recently bought a Pedaltrain Metro 24 off of somebody but they've put the hook/rough side of the velcro onto the board rather than the loop/soft side...
So both my pedals and board have hook side on... I'm currently only using 5 or 6 pedals.

Should I replace the velcro on the board or the pedals? I'd rather change the velcro on the board but I'm not sure how tricky that would be.

Change the board to loop. 90% of folk put the hook side on the pedal, so if you kept the hook on your board you’d have to change the Velcro on every used pedal you buy from now on. It would get old quickly.

If you haven’t got enough spare Velcro it can be cheaply bought online in rolls. When I was in the middle of my intense pedalboard phase, the big thing I learned was you can never have too much Velcro!

      So, I recently acquired a Darkglass X ultra for my studio. I'm using my Tech 21 Dug Pedal in one of my bands. 
      I'm sure some people I'm sure will be interested in the comparison? I sat down the other day with my Rick 4003 and set to work.
      Firstly, both pedals are brilliant. There is no denying that. Now, let's get down to the meat. The Dug is obviously based on achieving his own tone. Now, not everyone wants that. I don't. However, despite it having a fixed crossover it's amazingly versatile and even at more extreme gain settings is still musical. Now for the downside. The mid scoop. It's there where the problem lies with this. Even with fiddling you can't get it back as the pedal eq just isn't voiced that way. Most of the time this isn't a problem though. The clean tone is a bit so-so and it's impossible to switch from clean to dirty with settings that are workable for either.
      This then brings me to the Darkglass. It has both a filter for the lows to keep them clean and one for how much frequency wise of the signal gets distorted. Sharp bite to brutal fuzz is possible. The 7 band eq is great as well, so a clean tone is easy enough to achieve. This brings me on to the distortion. It has a different character than the Dug. The only way I could describe it is "Darkglass." It's just what it is. So, can you get the same sounds out of each? Yes, but it takes some effort.
      At harsher settings the Darkglass fizzes a bit and at higher low end settings the bass turns a bit mushy in my view. However, unless you're mental, you're not going to do that.
      So which is better? Depends on your point of view. The Dug is £150 cheaper give or take. But it's less flexible. The Darkglass has more things to get used to, but is much more agile to change on the fly. Is that worth the price difference? Depends.
      On a personal note, I'd use the Dug live as I know it better. However, I feel that more can be wrung out of the X ultra if you choose to try to. The fact  it has switchable cab emulation is another bonus. Maybe the inherent "Darkglassness" of it might put people off, but in many ways it's better than the Dug. Possibly, the Dug has a more musical distortion, but that is a very personal choice for the player. I'm a Tech 21 person for life, but always like trying new stuff. 
      Take your pick. I doubt either would disappoint anyone.
