    Default BOSS PS6 Harmonizer

    Hey guys,

    I upgraded my BOSS pedal from the PS6 pitch shifter to the PS6 Harmonizer pedal. I have always had that pedal because it gave me the de tune feature and sorta gave me the FUCK / Balance sound so to speak. Obviously not a W/D/W setup but pretty good sound considering. I am waiting for the PS6 to come in and I was curious if anyone out there has one and has compared it to the PS5 for the De tune feature. Does it do a better job in that respect and maybe be a little better for what I am looking for? Running it through my 5150III 50 with 2X12 cab. I figured rather than going out and buying a Eventide pitchfactor this would be a cheaper and hopefully better choice for the sound I am looking for on a budget.

    thanks guys,

    Rob

    Can you get the effect Ed had on the solo on Unchained and the outro to So This is Love with that? I think I read that it was an Eventide, but I dunno. I'd like to find a cheap pedal version of that effect to use in my tribute band.

    well it came in and I have tried it out a little. Seems better than the PS5 as far as the detune feature is concerned. I seem to really get a nice Balancy type tone which is what I was going for.

    For the PS6 can it detune both up and down at the same time (ie +9 AND -9 at once) or can it only go one way and not the other? The reason I ask is I'm trying to get the Balance type tone and I can't afford to buy an Eventide.

    good question Bluto I really dont know. It has a detune setting and then you just adjust the Balance setting to the effect you desire. I get a GREAT Balance era sound on mine through my 5150III 50W though...
