    How have we not put this one in yet?



    At least they were tring to be innovative. One of the first modelers, and it had a MIDI pickup too. I mean, everything it did was bad, but it was an inventive idea.

    I saw a guitar clinic back in the day with this guy, Coop or Cooper DeVille I think his name was, he was playing a Godin into one of those and got some ridiculously cool sounds with it. Lots of cool shit, mixing the piezo's in with the Roland. I never played one but I always wanted to give one a try.
    Perfection is the enemy of progress.

    You didn't take that pic in the 90s, did you? Every camera I had back then was like 1/1000th of a megapixel.

    Ola's video has made me kind of want to find a zoom 4040 to see exactly how bad it was. I think I may have used it with a VTwin pedal, before I switched to a boss gt-5 (with the v-twin).

    I've actually been gassing for a vtwin pedal lately as well. Even though i know that definitely doesn't belong in this thread.

    Incidentally, the morley pedal (wah) was my first wah pedal, so I had one, quickly got substituted for a vox. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't amazing either from my recollection.

    It's basically an SPX-90 in non-rackmount form. Who the fuck other than 17-year-old stupid kids like me wanted an effects unit in that form factor???

    Sound was pretty good, actually (the SPX-90 was a studio mainstay well into the 1990s). The REX was also remarkably durable. It made a couple long moves with me and was massively abused, and still worked perfectly.
    I remember the review of that in Guitar Player called it "The REXas Chainsaw Massacre" because of the exceptionally brutal digital distortion. Otherwise, they sounded great, but someone at Yamaha had too much sake before coming up with that form factor.
