    Always wanted to try this one. Mainly because of Justin chancellor. But it sure sounds good too.

    I liked the sound of this pedal in all of clips that I'd heard on the internet enough to push me to find one of these to buy.

    Once I got it home, I was amazed at how this sounded through my own setup. When I started combining it with the other effects in my chain... WOW! drool

    I was blown away by what adding tremolo did to the already awesome sound that I get with a bit of OD or fuzz and my Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter!

    This is one of those long shots that paid off :bassist::hyper:

    Heck yeah, what a great pedal. Definitely my favorite modulation, the tube really does add a bit of subtle warmth.
    Mine’s beat to poopie but it sounds fantastic. Actually been thinking of moving it in the classifieds but I’m too torn.

    I've only had mine a few days but I will not be getting rid of it. I searched for the better part of a year for a tremolo that sounded that way that I liked and after playing, literally, dozens of pedals I never found one that sounded like the clips that I heard of this one. Like I said, this is one of those rare longshots that really paid off and I'm not going to get rid of this like I did my Boss HM-2 from the 80's (bought NIB in 84') :banghead:

    I got mine as part of a trade deal a few months ago, and it’s truly great- unfortunately my need for modulation (even the most perfect modulation) is at zero right now, so mine’s up for grabs in the classifieds.
    I was running mine towards the end of my chain, giving things a nice warmth with most of the trem & speed dialed down.. This thing really is super versatile and definitely the first trem I ever meshed with fully, like you said.

    Dang! I wish you'd listed that last Friday! Then I could have given my money to a TBer instead of some random Reverber :(

    GLWTS! Someone is going to be very happily modulating like a mofo soon :thumbsup:
