Anyone try one of these yet?<br /> <br /> I'm going to try to get to GC this weekend to check one out. What I hear on YouTube sounds pretty good. Especially for arpeggio type stuff. No, it doesn't sound exactly like a real 12 string. But it might be close enough for live gigging for a few 12 string songs. One less thing to have to haul to a gig. True bypass too.<br /> <br /> There are a few vids out there. This one is pretty good.<br />

Interesting. Online pricing seems to be $150. I like the sound of 12 strings but don't play them much when I have one, so this seems like a pretty good idea to me.

That's a pretty good emulation but definitely not like the real thing. The B and hi E string on a 12 string don't have a tone an octave above. If you're just playing chords it's not as noticeable but, to me, it sticks out when doing single note stuff on those strings. To the average listener they couldn't discern a 12 string from a 6 string anyway.<br /> <br /> +1 for the Danelectro 12 string comment above. I have one and they are GREAT sounding 12 strings.

I ended up getting the Mosaic from Sweetwater and I really like it. Works great. For playing arpeggios and single notes it's amazing (you're right about the B and E string, but it actually still sounds good). With the guitar isolated, when playing full 6 string strummed chords you can hear a tiny bit of digital artifacts if you listen very closely, but sitting in the band mix you can't hear anything but the sound of a 12 string.<br /> <br /> After my last gig (I play in a Beatles tribute band), a couple guys came up to me and asked me how I got that 12 string sound with my 6 string guitar. Very cool pedal. Think it's a keeper.<br /> <br /> I had been considering a Dano 12 string, or even a Rick, but this works great and for 6 or 7 songs per gig, I don't have to change guitars or bring an extra with me. Works for me!

Just picked up one of these used. Fun toy. However much some say it "misses the mark", I'll trade that little bit for not having to buy an actual 12-string, lug it around, pay for strings for it, re-string it and try to keep it in tune. Sounds "good enough" to me, but then, perhaps I'm a Tone Philistine.<br /> <br /> Sounds nice and jangily through a crappy little Fender SS amp I had laying around. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Now...where the heck did I put them...

Love that pedal for live work. It's still on my board. <br /> <br />

FWIW, this original topic has been resurrected after 2 1/2 years.<br />

"...this original topic has been resurrected after 2 1/2 years."<br /> <br /> Yeah, well, I read the thread back hen and took note, but was focused on playing bass so my gear money was all going towards that at the time. <br /> <br /> Then I recently pretty much fell down a Byrds/McGuinn rabbit hole which got me messing with the bass parts of those tunes, so one thing led to another.<br /> <br /> BTW: the guitar I'm running through it is a little Gretsch 6122-JR (loaded with Filtertrons) which seems to be well-suited to the task.
