Super Teil!
Peter352, 19.10.2020
Der Sidekick von Crazy Tube Circuits ist jeden Euro wert. Ein wunderbar weich und genial klingender Chorus. Ein brauchbares Echo-Gerät und vor allem ein Hall, der einen regelrecht umhaut, so schön klingt der, insbesondere im Exiter-Modus. In Kombination mit dem Echo lassen sich sphärische Klänge zaubern. Aber auch als einfacher Spring-Reverb jederzeit auf höchstem Niveau klingend. Schade nur, dass lange Hallfahnen beim Ausschalten des Effekts nicht nachklingen, sondern abrupt weg sind. Außerdem: der Flanger kann mich nicht so richtig begeistern. Nebengeräuscharm ist der Sidekick auch. Ein genialer Kauf, der richtig Spaß macht. Ich habe auch den Stereo-Hall von Crazy Tube Circuits, um verschiedene Halltypen per Fuß abrufen zu können. Die Jungs aus Athen reagieren auch super schnell, nett und kompetent auf emails.

Ein kompaktes Pedal für traumhafte Klänge
Mike Perschy, 19.01.2020
Ich war auf der Suche nach einem Pedal, dass Delay und Reverb vereint. Zufällig bin ich dann auf Thomann auf dieses Pedal gestoßen und siehe da, sogar Flanger und Chorus, beide auch auf meiner „must have“ Liste, wurden von dem Pedal vereint. Bewertungen sind bis heute rar gesäht, also sah ich mich auf Youtube um. Ich fand dieses nette Video: war schnell begeistert und bin es heute, nach dem Kauf und ein paar Bandproben, noch mehr.
Für mich wichtig: Das Pedal liefert drei verschiedene Reverb-Arten. Man braucht wahrscheinlich nicht mehr und alle klingen phantastisch. Der zweite, separat zu schaltende Kanal ist jener für Delay. Auch hier wird man nicht enttäuscht. Klang und Einstellmöglichkeiten sind vielfältig, aber nicht zu überladen, sodass man schnell den gewünschten Ton findet. Schließlich der Chorus bzw. Flanger. Beide klingen richtig gut nach 80er-Rock und lassen die Rockherzen höher fliegen. Besonders der Chorus ist beeindruckend vielfältig und klingt richtig gut.
Fazit: mit dem Sidekick hat Crazy Tube Circuits ein Pedal geschaffen, dass zwar nicht günstig, aber dafür richtig viel für‘s Geld bietet. Die wichtigsten Sounds der 80er und einen sehr schönen und dreifach einzustellenden Reverb, dazu noch ein sehr schönes Delay. Wirklich traumhaft! Wenn man das alles in Relation zum Preis setzt, hat man ein richtig gutes Angebot vor sich. Außerdem spart man massig Platz auf seinem Board, denn der Sidekick vereint allein vier Pedale in nur einem einzigen kompakten Pedal.
Für mich ist der Sidekick genau das wonach ich gesucht habe.
PS: meine Bandkollegen haben ganz schön Augen gemacht!
Absolute Kaufempfehlung!

Bonne pédale facile à gérer
Bruno724, 15.05.2020
C'est bien conçu au niveau des options de routage ( simul HP vers DI et/ou sortie casque, cab sim pour basse ou guitare, true bypass ou buffer, réglage de gain, tous réglables par mini switch internes) un vrai plus.
Bonne réverbe plutôt brillante avec 3 sons
Délai également bon
Chorus / Flanger moins convaincants (ça sonne numérique et tror brillant) mais font le boulot
le tout switchable indépendamment, ça fait 3 pédales dans un boîtier très compact. Je regrette un peu la qualité du chorus.
