Well, I sure hope I did not step in it this time. In a moment of mental weakness I made an offer on the X330 (Tabaco sunburst) that was on fee-bay and it was accepted. The problem is that one of the MPC is missing and so is part of the connection wiring and clips. here is the link.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/370844480077?ss ... 1439.l2649

so, how hard will this be to fix? also do any of you have an MPC that you will sell?

oh - also what do you think of the finish" I thought that X330 were cherry sunburst.
thanks

It looks like all that's missing is the module connector from the picture-check the mpc wiring diagrams on the forum to confirm when you get it. If that's all,PM me and I'll send you a connector.

wow so that is good news - thanks. btw - I see there is an ebay for three mcp mods - I only need one so if any of you are interested in the other two let me know and maybe we can go in on it together.

I am not sure because I am very new to this and have never played an MPC. My guitar will be coming with a phase module and I do not know what would go good as a combination. Suggestions are of course welcome.

btw - are my eyes playing games with me or is the finish of the one I am expecting (please see above link) different that the typical cherry sunburst that the x330 is associated with?

I think a power over drive is great there is a slight loss of volume on most of the effects so that's a great one to add a little more volume or increase your volume for a lead passage. If you really like it thorny modifies these to add more gain and volume
