Anybody tried the AMT Fatal Tube pedal?

    I've seen this pop up from time to time. Looks interesting, but maybe a little redundant for the B7K owner. ...Or not?

    Anybody have any experience with one and care to comment?

    I picked one up for $60 last month. I dig the warmth of the tube emulation, but I run it in a loop in front of my EHX Bass Big Muff... for a touch of warmth in the beginning and lots of dirt from the muff during the sustain of a chord. The on-board EQ's are so-so, but the gain and drive give you chance to find that overdriven sweet spot. Even at its most saturated, the warmth comes through. I have to qualify that by saying I play on Rotosound 88 tapewounds. No experience with the B7K...
