    Anyone have one of these?

    I just ordered one (and I am super excited).

  2. First I have read of it, any links? It sounds awesome!

  5. That's a cool site, JohnK is a TBer correct?

    Please share your thoughts when you get the pedal in!

    I have one. It is great. I believe my pic of it started this whole thing.

    The clips sound great. That Orange sound is why I picked up the EQD Monarch, which I'm really enjoying.

    JohnK, do you have vero layouts for the Orange preamps modded for bass? Particularly interested in the 2nd one. I see the Citrus MKII on tagboardeffects but not with bass mods.

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    I have been experimenting with one of these for a while. Cool pedal- very nicely made.

    I find that it struggles a bit with a higher output bass like my Cirrus (18v active electronics), I need to cut to around 60-75% to really utilize it.

    It has an interesting tone stack- takes a bit getting used to. Anyone have clips of theirs?

    The Monarch is a great pedal!
    I already play an AD200b, and the Monarch into the Orange is a great combination for hefty push while still maintaining my overall tone.

    Also (as a side) - is John K responsible for the Tagboard Effects Blog? I've just started dipping my toes into pedal building and that site is incredible!!!
