    I don't think it's worth $300

    For $300 can't they afford some nice silk screening on the box? Or at least write neater? :p

    The box is a horrible afterthought IMO. Lousy paint job, bad writing, knobs you can't see the position of, and a master volume that will undoubtedly get bumped anytime the footswitch is depressed.

    But the real problem is that at $275 it enters a crowded arena of great (and better executed) preamp pedals from the likes of Demeter, Tri-Logic, Aguilar, Sadowsky, Eden, EBS, etc.
