Well I sing, play guitar, bass and keyboards so maybe the X3 Live is ideal? I have a Marshall JCM800 original 80's amp so is that a good amp to have?

Yeah, the X3 live will work well with that (just using it as a multi-fx pedal). But, you don't strictly need an amp with the X3 live, you can plug it straight into the PA system.
The X3 has 2 inputs/outputs so you can run 2 out of vocals, bass or guitar through it (also really good for recording).

I think it's great and would recommend getting one. BTW I got my X3 live new for £330 including a carry case (I got a shop to price match www.guitarampkeyboard.com


EDIT ADDED BIT:
IMO it's worth the extra cash than the XT, it also comes with all the extra patches that you would have to pay for with the XT.

Cool. I was looking at Guitar Amp Keyboard for the X3 Live and I will probably get it from there to be honest when I get paid in a week. I'm looking forward to getting hold of it already smile.gif

Cool, hope you enjoy it!
BTW persevere with the instruction mannual - I didn't find it very clear at first.

Looks like you can tick 'many effects' off your wanted list - altought I must admit: I still can't get it to simulate a good whammy huh.gif if anyone has any good suggestions that would be appreciated (apart from buy a whammy).

I'd imagine the best way is to own a Digitech Whammy Pedal as well I'm afraid. Can it do Wah well? Volume?

Maybe I'm just not using it right.
Is anyone here (who has the X3) happy with the whammy? (not wah incase there was/is any confusion)

never really tried the wammy, never tried running both pedals through eachother either, cant see it working out well unless i wanted a ton of effects at the same time.

i never use my XT now, im letting my friend use it. the X3 is definatly worth the extra money if you can afford it, if not, theres nothing wrong with the XT.
