EHX Freeze...fun on bass?/Older units of higher quality than newer ones?

    I am interested in the ehx freeze and have two questions;
    1) those that have it...are you actually using it or is it one of those 'it seemed like a good idea at the time' pedals?
    2)I read somewhere that older units were of higher quality than newer ones.
    Is anyone here able to confirm this?

    Love my Freeze! Use it for synth pads, sympathetic droning, playing around with the root note of said song, organ decay and overall madness. I have it modified with a remote switch so the Freeze is on one side and the switch on the other

    Seemed like a good idea at the time. It was fun, and I tried working it into a few songs here and there, but didn't find much use for it in my band where the singer plays piano/keys/synth when needed.

    I have an early one, and it gets lots of use in my hard rock covers band.

    Thanks all!
    What other Mods are there, apart from the remote foot switch?
    Thanks again!
