    Sounds just like 1989... or a "metal" riff on Stranger Things...

    Perhaps. Production is more like "Wayne and Garth in the basement" level, though.

    For my next exhibit, we move ahead about three years to 1991-92. I had been successfully using the Zoom 9002 for a couple years as my guitar DI--it was a hell of a little machine for the time, and I think it was directly responsible for the later revolution started by the original POD.

    However, proving that a little money in my pocket is a dangerous thing, I figured I would blow a bunch of $$$ on Zoom's "new and improved" semi-rackable guitar preamp, the 9030:



    OMG, what a piece of shit!! The effects were actually damned good, but the preamp was awful--a huge downgrade from the 9002. Apparently, the incredibly artificial guitar sound in these made them a favorite of industrial music producers some years later. Unfortunately, mine had been dragged around the country in the bottom of a storage bin for years and was a brick by the time I could have sold it for anything.

    I agree, however I'll go a step further and say the reverb should be in the trash. Spring reverb sucks. I still have no idea why it's included on mark amps. I'm glad the knobs are at least in the back like the on-board cab clone on the newer marks, that way I can ignore they exist.
