    Do you people still use it? (i don´t see many on your pedalboard pics)

    I have 2 of them (1 as backup) and once in a while i like using the Diesel Dawg. I really dig the sound, sometimes in combination with envelope-filters (MXR BEF or 3Leaf Groove Regulator) and sometimes i blend little clean signal into the chain.

    What i don´t like: it´s a very huge and heavy pedal and its design is very very ugly in my opinion, what did the G&K designer smoke? Switching batteries is horror. I might take a look inside and try to re-house the circuit.

    Also not many videos on YouTube, but here is one i just found:

    I use an adapter on mine. There are some pics floating around of guys who have re-housed this unit.

    Lots of ugly pedals out there that sound good!
