    It's so interesting to see how people are using their Studio Boosts (front of chain vs. end of chain; in front of preamps vs. after preamps). Different strokes...

    I find it way more controlling before everything, but I can see it effecting some things too much. I noticed that with my P15, sb>p15 got a little too much, whatever you call it, saturated? I'm going to see how it fairs after the p15 with my new power supply, everything @24

    Exactly. Boosts, like compression, tend to find homes at the bookends as sometimes you want to boost to hit something in your chain harder to really overdrive it and other times you need it to give your full signal a bit more umph. I have almost always preferred adding a boost to the end of my chain. The Studio Boost also is super clean and adds some of that studio magic to your tone so I really like to take my signal and be able to just add more of it. The biggest problem with the studio boost is that when you turn it off, you REALLY feel it. As such, I've been using it as an always on tone enhancer on my guitar board (studio one sits towards the end of my chain for my bass setup). I also really love the SunRay with guitar. It's a tube amp in a pedal...sounds so good when you smash it with an ODB to really drive the SunRay.

    I love swag. I just received a Fliptop, thought I’d show off some Broughton swag, box candy if you will.

    You got a bag?? Okay that's it. I'm contacting the manager and filing an official complaint.

    It’s very cool.

    Very similar to the Broughton Pi, but doesn’t have the Buffer buster feature.

    Calamity/Pi are definitely in my top 3 Bass muffs.

    It would have to be something really cool to convince me to trade it.

    I’d consider it for a SunRay, or something unique like that.

    I think it comes down to settings. I've had success with the silver deluxe in a mix with more midrange heavy knob settings, but it definitely doesn't have grindy treble on its own like the helion

    Got my Fliptop today. VERY versatile EQ pedal. I feel it does a B-15 approximation as well as the SV-Pre does the SVT. An HPF before the Fliptop sure helps rein in the “pillow”. (or just turning the Bass knob below 12 o’clock) I prefer it to my Barber Linden and SansAmp VT-Bass. Thanks, Josh.

    Had a brief introductory exchange with the Fliptop. 9 volt, gain maxed, Bass and Treble at 8 o’clock, almost fully CCW, was surprisingly thick and awesome. Same gain, Bass maxed, Treble at noon brought its own joy. Gain at 11 o’clock with B & T maxed for something completely different. Each tasty in its own right. THEN I, what did you do daddy, what did you do? I hit it with approximately a 5-10 dB boost from a clean Saturn VI. Wowee Zowee that was tickling. I feel like I barely know it, but I suspect it will continue to grow on me.
    While I momentarily tested the range of the cab sim, as I suspected, it will not be a feature I put to use. I’d guess it does a fine job of emulating a speaker cabinet, which is the last thing I want to do.
    Someday, when I feel like being bad, I’m gonna start a thread informing everyone how people who use cab sims are losers.

    FT = maybe too subtle for some? Gotta dial it in, then season with other pedals. It’s nice.

    FlipTop really shines in a 'no amp' situation like going direct to a board or PC.
