    Just tried one of these today and was really inpressed with the sound. Im seriously considering getting one. Ive just read lots of reviews where the only complaint is that the pedal has too much bass.Not a problem for me! :D

    Has anyone had experiences with it? Opinions?
  2. I had one (I sold it maybe a week ago).

    It sounds pretty cool on it's own, but as soon as I got in a band situation, I found it didn't cut through no matter what I tried.

    It didn't cut out much bass though, and the "frequency / contour" control was very powerful, but it just didn't cut it.

    So I sold it and bought a Snarling Dogs pedal.

    Which Snarling Dogs pedal did you get? I just ordered a Blue Doo to add a little grease and grime, but it's backordered by a week or so... Wondering if you have experienced it.
  4. Yep, that's the one I got. I would say it adds dirt (in a kinda blown speaker way) rather than grime, it's a really warm tubey kinda sound, with I'd maybe say too much bass.

    However, the true bypass is nice, and the tone bypass feature is such a good idea, I'm surprised more pedals don't have it.

    I thought the pedal was almost exactly the sound I was looking for, but if it doesnt cut then its gonna be a problem. Ill get it, and if it dont work, its going back. Thanks
