Comments about Yamaha dg_stomp:
I use this for studio work, playing on a wide variety of different projects, from hip hop to industrial to jazz. I haven't used it live yet, but that's coming right up. I picked this up used, cheap, and I'd say it holds it's own, tonally, with any modern processor I've compared it with. I discovered you can put an overdrive pedal in front of it and it behaves very much like a tube amp; there was none of the digital "sqarbles" you'd hear if you tried that trick with a POD.
That said, the user interface is very 1988. The cryptic, 3 digit LED display guarantees frequent trips to the manual, for a while. Assigning a midi controller was particularly arcane. (Yes, it has midi in an out, a nice feature which was sadly lacking from their subsequent Magic Stomp!) Being able to turn off the speaker sim with an actual button makes it all forgivable though. This unit would have been perfect if it had an LCD and dedicated up-down footswitches; I've managed to get around that by working the up-down buttons with my toes. Aside from that, the knobs are a lovely thing!
It's also built like a tank. I took it partially apart to see how difficult it would be to mod the up-down buttons...and was surprised to find that the steel back plate is only about 1/3 of the weight; the rest is in the top section and fairly heavy-duty circuit boards.
All in all this unit, while dated, still is very usable. For what these go for used nowadays I might grab a second one for backup.
