    NGD Not behind the curve this time.

    Bought a Mooer GE300 from the Canadian Distributor, not even available in the US yet:

    Nice of them to include the button toppers.

    Lots of I/O.

    It's so damn small though.

    Wow I was starting to think I'd never see one in the wild. Thoughts so far?

    I have no idea who made this or what it is but congrats!

    I haven't been keeping track of much guitar related gear these past couple of years.

    The amp models need some tweaking, effects seem good, synth is nuts.

    Fixed. It's a Mooer GE300.

    First impressions:

    Pro: The Tone Capture is really cool. I was able to get eq profiles for my rhythm and lead channels, which sound close enough to not really tell. I used the VHT model(Shittcow ) as a basis, since the Laney is super dry.

    Con: The amp switch control is kinda lame. You can't set it to be on or off at load of a patch, so if you want to use the rhythm channel for one, and the lead for another you have to manually switch it. Maybe they'll update this down the road with firmware? For now I plan to run the rhythm channel from my amp as 4cm, and use a tone capture of the lead channel to get around this.

    Pro: The Boost pedals in the thing sound fantastic. I put my MXR in a drawer for now.

    Con: They put a full 3 band EQ on each boost pedal, which gets annoying when all you really need is a tone.

    Pro/Con: There are a lot of amazing sounding metal amp models in this thing. Did it really need models of the 5150III, OG5150, and 6505+? Pick one! The Friedman model is sick, the Randall Satan model is not. I need to learn how to tweak this stuff, I haven't used modelling beyond the Katana in a decade.

    Pro/Con: My 3 yr old loves the LED lights and wants to just play with the buttons.

    Effects do the job. I haven't deep dived into anything like the shimmerverb. I'm still working on getting a good Phase90 style effect out of it, but they're easily as good as Boss/Digitech/etc.

    The Synth Engine is interesting, but I'd rather have polyphonic pitch change that sounds good instead.

    The PC editor is good, I'm hoping for an android version like the Preamp Live, so I can use an old tablet as an interface.

    Overall, for $700 this is better than the Headrush in amp models, not as easy to use, and doesn't integrate as well with my amp. On the other hand, when I plug it into the PC it actually works.

    I'd be reluctant to buy anything mooer where the software side wasn't already where I needed it to be.... having to borrow a PC to update the firmware on my Ocean machine was a pain etc.

    This does sound great though and the amp switching seems like a minor oversight that they'll hopefully fix.

    I have PCs, that's not a problem. Just got addicted to the touch screen interface of the Headrush(but that unit was defective and wouldn't connect to a PC).

    I could probably be fine with a couple pedals, but I've always been a multi-fx guy.

    Are you totally sure about this? I was able to use my MS3 to channel switch when I had both a Mini Rec and a Mark V25, and it would know that my clean patches were channel 1 and my heavy patches were channel 2. You can set this in the MS3 as control 1/2 or control 3/4 and use a TRS cable in the jack. Are you sure it's not available in the Mooer?

    Also, it goes without saying...if it doesn't actually moo, it's false advertising.
