    Has anybody tried this yet? It has been out a while, but I have only seenone review at Harmony Central. I seems cool. It has two switches. One for off and on and one to "modify" the on sound. You can have it add either a 5th up or a 4th down. You can add distortion to the synthesized note too. It sounds like a neat box, but I want to hear more about it first.

    They sell it at www.musictoyz.com and www.musiciansfriend.com. There is nobody in town that has it.

    I found sounds:

    That sounds like a cool pedal. I think I want one. That and the Akai synth-bass pedal.

    I thought it sounded like a cool pedal. I would like to hear more about it, and/or try it.

    FOE_Bass, I woul be real interested in how it is. The review at harmony central was very detailed and in favor of it. I read another somewhere out there that said it stunk. The stinky one did not go into detail, so I am wondering if it was just a bad taste.
