    The artwork is cool
    The crossover is a great idea for any dirty effect, so is the input pad.
    Fully tweakable gate and clean blend too. It's got all the features of a boutique fuzz.
    And a price that is competitive with all the boutique versions that may only have one of those features.
    DI Output as well. What doesn't it do?

    Doesn't sound like its a gate in the way you are thinking of, sounds like its there to get rid of hum and other noises, not to cut the edges off like a Mammoth or Brown Dog.

    The gate may just be there to clean up noise, but I'm kinda hoping when set to maximum it can cut a note off abruptly.

    I'm liking the HPF & LPF. Gonna have to try one of these.

    It's got everything except a mid boost control/function - I wonder if the crossover is effective for preserving mids. If it is, I'll have to try it!

    Kind of surprised that EHX put several actual useful features on this pedal. Still haven't heard it though...

    If it works as well as it is planned, this may just be worth a shot. EHX however, have a lot to do to prove themselves to me, I've tried so many of their pedals and I really want to like them, but they just didn't cut it for me.

    Damn, I really wish they had put a Mids control on. That is the biggest thing missing for Big Muffs. The crossover is definitely interesting to me.

    Will have to give it a spin once available. Wish they had put all the jackage on top.

    Between the blend and the crossover control, the mids might actually be retainable. Who wants to sell me their used one ;)

    I fear this could be a typically half baked implementation - why put the crossover on a footswitch? If I stomp on that and it cuts the highs from my clean sound and lows from my fuzz sound, I expect the result to have a slight mid boost and overall volume drop...

    I would have much prefer they put that on a toggle switch and used the second footswitch for a feedback loop or pre-amp boost.

    +1 on the feedback loop.
    As is I suppose it can be used to swap between two different"characters" of distortion. Interesting to say the least.

    Damn, in five years this thing has everything... I mean, when they were at it, they could have easily put a cabsim for the DI, a mid button...

    Now seriously, this is exactly what I need. I'll buy it, definitely.
