So I ran out this morning to guitar center and picked up the last TL-2 hardwire pedal in stock. I have been tooling around with it for the last 3 hours and so far I am VERY impressed. I will be giving a real review after I try it with the band, but sound, construction, etc. are all there. I never was impressed with their products (except the whammy's) but these might give Boss a run for their money. I'm testing it with all my basses, including my 18 volt Fender Deluxe and MTD American to see how the pedal handles the higher output. I'm also A/B'ing it next to the death metal as you can see, I'll let you know how they compare. I'll be sitting here (watching the Giants game) annoying my neighbors for the next few hours. Go Big Blue.
