    Doesn't seem to be a club for this amazing piece of hardware here on TB ...... so I'll start one.

    I guess I'll be number 1 :)

    Doesn't have to be a XV

    I've got one. Awesome parallel looper. It's a beauty of a pedal and the presentation factor of how they packed and shipped it along with the candy was amazing. Could'nt really ask for a better implemented tool for your board. I love mine!!

    Been using the Schism for almost 2 years now.
    Best utility effect ever!

    I LOVE this guy. Parallel Loopers are essential to every bass player who uses effects....most of them just don't know it.

    That being said, I upgraded to a custom looper that I based off of the Schism but with a momentary footswitch on the first channel for stutter effects, a feedback loop on the second loop, and a dedicated tuner loop. But I DO still love this guy.

    Y'know what I love about your pedalboard?

    I don't recognize a single freakin' box on it!

    Man, I gotta bone up on what's new...

    I got one while he was still just an eBay entity before Badger was even a name. When I had a board it defined my arrangement of pedals.

    It's not as fancy as those newer XV models, but it still gets the job done.

    That's a lot of dirt on one board. I love it.

    Your money resents you for keeping it in the dark.

    If the Schism doesn't feel wanted there will be retribution.

    Your amp has been looking for a threesome with two effect chains.

    All your face melting power can't be held in check by one serial signal path.

    Parallel fuzzes make for interesting new sounds especially when combined with interesting EQ and other filters.

    Octave down chain in parallel with octave up chain, or ring mod chain.

    At least two of these are legit.

    2 effect channels and 1 clean channel each with their own mix control. How could you not?

    "Feeling overburdened by money?" Borderlands 2 players will recognize that one.

    These two would do it for me.

    After days and nights of TB and google, going with the schism, it nails every need and from the reviews, seems amazing. Now I wait...

    I've been thinking about fading in and out my channels... took me about 10 minutes to realize I can put a volume pedal in either or both and do some sweet dirt/modulation fades.

    For instance:
    ch1 - high frequency gated-fuzz > filter > phaser
    ch2 - heavy bass fuzz

    So I'm blasting away with all effects on (I do it a lot, and it sounds surprisingly awesome), then I fade out ch1 so the mix is overwhelmed by muffled fuzz only. I guess I'd have to then bring up the volume of ch2...

    I may have to buy another VP-Jr...

    Had mine for a few months now - I've found it great for stacking distortion with fuzz and clean blend, ideal for getting close to Timmy C/Justin Chancellor dirt sounds. Just looking forward to getting my new board through so I can wire this in to its permanent home :)

    Although I find my xotic blender extremely useful as a mod loop/blend.... These just look amazin. Really wish I would have gotten one of these.
