    Yeah, I'm not surprised it went so quickly- those Guyatone Micros have been selling for at least twice that usually. I have it in my head to buy up a crapload of different ones and rehouse them all into a killer true bypass analog multieffect unit.

    Bongo..are they all pretty decent pedals across the board? I have the MD3 micro delay and think it sounds great, and have been looking at couple of the other micro series pedals...I hate the way they did the backs though...that rubber ring holding the back on sucks...makes it hard for velcro to catch to a board...

    I have two of them, the BL-2 and the SD-2, and they are both really good sounding; I have never heard a negative review of the Micros' sound quality, only their flimsy construction. So they are ideal candidates for re-housing.

    Hmm, well I find this a good opporunity as any. A work buddy is offering his Qtron, and I've never used an Autowah other than the XP100's (for sale BTW, but someone's not been getting back to me on it so I'll make a post on F/S on it soon) and I wanna find that aggressive bassballsy envelope filter. Qtron got this? Or is it more used for funk?

    Bonafide Tool-o-holic right here, since 1994. I was more of a fan of Paul D'amour until Lateralus came out.

    No interest in this auction, but the thought is much appreciated! *salutes a la Mike Watt*

    Maynard be praised, achoo!

    (I feel like startin a forum fight for some reason. Might be that I just spend quality time with my RE-20 and am beginning to really get more neat sounds out of it, could be that I got paid today. Regardless...yea)

    You guys got somethin' to say to me? Why don't you say it in the microphone. I got a backup mike right here. Check one two, testing, testing. Yup, they both working and guess what? they don't like no feed back, what's up?

    Back in 19-diggity-4 in my first band I was the only one to wear earplugs, on a somewhat irregular basis. When anyone would piss me off, I'd stick the vocal mic into the middle of the giant, unknown, nonmovable 4x15 cabinet we had hooked up to whoever felt like plugging in, creating more feedbacked sonic destruction than a Sunn O))) show.

    Lesson learned: don't mess with me... I mean, wear earplugs. :)

    I'm not a fan of Tool but I saw them at Lollapalooza '93. All I really remember is the drummer played with his back to the audience.

    We called it diggity cause the Kaiser had stolen the word twenty... I chased him for diggity six miles, but gave up at diggity seven"

    The important part is that I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time see...
