Hey RG, I always liked mine, not that I use it much anymore.  What is the difference with the 'B' from the original?

Quite a bit Richard, and if I am honest I don't know if I like the 33b.

It cannot track for shit unless you select the "Chord" tracking option.

However this Chord Tracking option is not available when using certain other modes and you are left with "Normal", "Distortion" or "Bass".

And of course why not select distortion then since I am using distortion all the time?  Well because it doesn't work very well.

Now comparing this issue to the original and supposedly inferior IPS33, well the 33 wins hands down thanks to the distotion loop.  It tracks so well, and sounded so thick and "chewey", this is what Impressed me with the 33.

So everything I read has said the 33B is the best out of the two. so bagging the 33B I was expecting a bit more, and sadly I was let down. 

When I figured out that I could use the 33B and get it to sound ok using the "Chord" tracking i was immediatley relieved as it sounded great suddenly.  However then I discovered that it wasn't available in certain modes, mega crisis time.  I need to evaluate if this device is going to be useful to me or not now.

Other things that the 33B has are different internal stuff going on, it also has a, LCD read out as opposed to the digital number read out on the 33.  There is more processing power as well that allows for a few effects at once.  But then I only want the intelligent pitch shifting so none of that really matters to me.

It could be the 33 just suits me as a player.  It has more than enough scales to select from without ever running out in my opinion, but also you can transcribe your own custom scales.  Surely that's all one needs?  Well that's enough for me.  The extra knobs and whistles of the 33B are nice to have but if it can't even track as well as the older model, the f++k that!

Shame as I was looking to have one at home and one in the studio.

MJMP told me a while ago to look at my old 33 and see if the transformer says anything about 230v near by.  Low and behold it does, so I seem to recall he said I could possibly wire the 33's transformer to cope with the UK voltage which would be awesome as I hate having the step down transformer.  I might take a look inside the 33b and see if it has the same transformer, and see if I can perhaps copy the way it is wired up?  Good idea bad idea?


Oh the 33B has a remote control as well.

Sorry Herby  :wave: , but it was kind of predictable and I probably/definitely need to source one of those 4.5v batteries for mine.  I once programmed all the harmonies for the highway star solo, but I couldn't change them fast enough  :facepalm: (I would need to sequence them) so in the end I just went with a Gm patch, worked well enough.

Hey RG, thanks for the run down  :thumb-up: , very good to know.  I'll stick with mine, it does what it does quite well.  When you get a chance, try not using the dist loop and see how it tracks, I found no difference, still tracked just fine (although I understood why they put it there etc and used it for quite a while).

It will be good if you can rewire the tranny for 230v  :whoohoo!: , or possibly swap the 33Bs tranny in, although it may not be compatible  :dunno: . I'm not a fan of step downs either  :facepalm:

after waiting for 2 months, finial got my CAE line mixer plus. version 2 has more in's in mix one compared to the previous mixer i believe.

saving for two yamaha spx90's for detune and a voodoo lab gcx and ground control. hopefully i can get that stuff by the end of next year.

one step closer to finishing my rig. i am desperate for a 20 space rack.

I'm interested in using it in a "simplified" B rig consisting of my version 2.01 MP1 and Mosvalve 1160.  Looks to be a pretty advanced unit for the time (circa '89, I think).  Tube and speaker emulation, analog effects.

Well I'm hoping it's a lot of fun actually!  What do you mean?

I was joking about someone breaking into my account you know  :lol:

I was trying to deny the fact that I went and bought another axe when I really shouldn't have, but hey, this is the GAS thread!

Excellent now I am quite glad I fooled you as I have provided you with an great excuse next time you need to buy a sneaky bass purchase!

Well it is very me that axe!  Superstrat and not a common variety one.  I like Tokai guitars, I think their very under estimated and underated.
