Win a Beta Aivin U-600S Pedalboard with 6 Guitar Effects

The U-600S pedalboard contains 6 Beta Aivin effects pedals: Digital Reverb (RV-100), Digital Delay (DD-2), Overdrive (OD-100), Acoustic Simulator (AC-100), Phaser (PH-100), Multi-effects (ME-100). The pedals are enclosed within the U-600S pedalboard which is a case with built-in speaker and power supply. To try the pedalboard, I used the Ibanez AX-125 plugged in the clean channel of my Hugues & Kettner Edition Silver. In the videos I only tried the effects one by one. I could have made more videos to check all the possibilities, but I tried to keep it short to make an overview of the different pedals. For each pedal I played a riff or arpeggios with different settings.

I liked

  • The power supplied pedalboard.
  • The pedals metal cases are strong
  • The multi-effects pedal has many settings possibilities. For example you can use it as 1/ use it as an equalizer, or 2/ add delay or reverb, to each effect of the ME-100 (chorus, flanger, phaser, rotary, pitch, A. wah, T. wah and tremolo).
  • The Acoustic Simulator is quite good, and I still didn’t check all the settings.
  • The Digital Delay est good if you look for a short time delay effect (2 modes: 400 and 800 ms).

I did not like

  • The A-wah and T-wah effects of the ME-100 are rather strange to use! I’ll stick with the classic wah effect, I like the feel of an expression pedal under my foot.
  • The overdrive might be the weakest effect of all 6. Let me explain. Up to 12 o’clock on the gain knob, I think the OD provides a tone how I expect it to be. But if you push the gain further, it is more like a distorsion with a loss of definition. Some might like it though.
  • Though there is plenty of space for the pedals, these are made to fit one format (Boss and Boss clones pedals) so if you want to add another type of pedal you might lack some flexibility. But don’t complain, 6 pedals are good enough to keep you busy a couple of months.

The U-600S is a good solution to transport your effects pedals at rehearsals and gigs. The boutique effects fans won’t fancy that much… But I think that the beginners will be pleased with this fully functional pedalboard. If you have questions about the effects, contact me and I will edit the post to answer.

  1. Hello, je participe parce que je deviens accro aux concours Muzicosphère.

  2. Non merci je ne souhaite pas gagner ce pedalboard

  3. Very nice gift!

  4. Wow,

    This looks like such a simple solution for beginners to have multiple pedals at their toe’s wherever they want to go.

    I’ve been playing for two years, have a single multi effects pedal which is fine for at home but not for moving around to my mates places. There’s nothing like being able to combine the effects that you’ve tweeked to sound just right by having multiple pedals that you can slap a lid on and take away. Wow, I could really use this to get my sound out there at my friends places and the little gigs i play every now and again.

    Hope i’m a contender to win this!

    Josh.

  5. Man I really need a pedal board for my pedals now that I’m getting back in to the swing of performing in a band. I would love this! Looks great.

  6. I really need to try out all 643,218 combinations of those 6 pedals and their respective settings.

  7. This is THE ideal giveaway to me. I need this for playing live. Count me in on this one!

  8. This is far better than my old multi effect pedal. I might not be the best guitar player, but I would sure look cool with this : )

    Hi, I’m totally broke as I don’t have any work ( winter season ) and when I can work again ( in summer ) I need to pay off my parents ( I borrowed some money from my parents a while ago ( also for stuff I needed to make my music )) So, it would really help me out!

  10. I’m in a band called My Bloody Valentine.

  11. Ooh! I should most certainly win this giveaway because I make many sound noises and this will help me make different sound noises and penetrate the inner ear workings of human and/or other entities.

  12. Zul and Hiz Bass

    Why ??? because Tom Morello is god and i love his tone ^^

  13. You see, I have a problem… Every morning I hear out from nowhere these strange noises… It’s like old fashioned 8 bits nintendo tunes. Sometimes they just wont go away, and sometimes they are like playing heavy metal riffs in their own square/sawtooth way… not to mention the percussion made of fizzy intermittent noises.

    I decided to go see a doctor, told him my “problem” and he said:
    -Duuuude, what you’re hearing is the music of the future! Go get yourself some effect pedals and share what you hear with the rest of us-

    Then he said with a very serious tone in his voice:
    -But do me a favor, do NOT go and buy $1000 worth of effects until you already know how to use them!

    After paying the medical bill, I have left exactly the money for import taxes… Should I take this as a sign?

  14. Ca fait des années que je veux un truc comme ça pour trimballer mes pédales en répét !!!
    Je le veux, je le veux, je le veux.

  15. Quand j’ai vu ce magnifique pédale board, ma bouche à émis un Whaaaaaaaa d’emerveillement…malheureusement ma guitare n’a pas pu suivre car elle ne sait pas faire ce son.
    Peut-être pouvait vous l’aider?

    Sérieusement, le Pedalboard à l’air très complet, et je pense qu’il pourrait vraiment faire un malheur accompagné de mon petit lampe…

  16. Fruits Confits

    ???

    Des pédales ? Kesako ? Avec une planche à pédale en plus ? Pour quoi faire ?

    Je préfèrerai un grille pain.

  17. J’aurais besoin d’une nouvelle pédale pour ma machine à coudre.

  18. Mandarine Man

    Jouer du rock sans pédales, c’est bêta et vain,
    Jouer dur, rock, ces pédales, c’est Beta Aivin!

    Come on Pedalboard, we ‘re expecting you!

  19. Bon, bah Kleuck déclaré vainqueur, c’est la logique des concours. 🙂

  20. gildas le fur

    Je veux pouvoir embêter mes voisins avec des nouveaux sons

    Niark vive le rock et les guitares

    les guitares
    les guitares

    et les effets pour guitares

  21. Randy Saunders

    With respect to Dr. King, I have a dream!! Please help this old grandpa make his dream come true! Let me win the guitar, amp, and these pedals, and Santa can stay home(like he always does). THANKS!!

  22. Je joue dans un groupe, où je suis sensé assumer des parties de shoegaze. Le problème du shoegaze, est qu’il faut avoir des pédales a regarder, et qu’avec mon rig réduit d’étudiant, c’est assez difficile !
    Tandis qu’avec ce magnifique Pedalboard Beta Aivin U-600S avec 6 Effets Guitare, je serai ainsi le maître de l’effet, de la modulation, de la saturation et du tremolo, sans oublier les délais, la réverbération, et la simulation acoustique, le tout dans un magnifique emballage d’une utilité sans contexte.

    S’il vous plait, rendez vous compte que je dois à chaque répetition être compétitif face à un guitariste utilisant, fourbe qu’il est, son ordinateur portable tel un multi effet, rendant ainsi mon son fade par l’illusion de sa technologie !

  23. avec ce pedalboard ça va décoiffer à la maison, les voisins vont même croire que nous sommes devenus des pros !!!!!

  24. Andrea Grosso

    So guys,i must be the winner!!!

    Se vedemmu ( Bye bye) =)

  25. I just got an all in one effect-pedal. It was pretty cheap, but it seemed to be a nice pedalbord. It worked pretty well for a couple of months. Untill yesterday! I had to peform at a local event and a lot of people were there. The first 2 songs went fine and it was time to play “Helicopter” by Bloc Party. The first 2 bars went good, audience was enthousiastic, but after that 2 bars my pedalbord just shut itself down! No sounds, nothing! I tried to let it work by tapping on the volume pedal, but nothing happened. It was so embarrassing. I had no effects at all and we had to skip the whole song and continue with song where I didn’t need to have distortion or any other effect.

    So just after I got home I tried to find a way to repear my pedalbord, but it seemed to be broken. Now I only have some distortion on my amp (whitout footswitch) and need to buy other guitar effects. The only thing is that I don’t want to waste money on cheap stuff, so I need to save a lot of money. And I still have some performances planned in just 2 weeks! That’s why I think I deserve (and need!) the guitar effects! It would really safe me and keeps me playing with my band! It would be awesome!
