    Not cheap...but if it could replace all other ods it might be reasonable...

    The price is for buying something made by the guy who made pedalboards for The Who, Pink Floyd, Queen, etc. etc.

    The price does not imply it would replace all other ODs.

    My point was that I might spend that kind of money if the pedal covered enough ground for me to not want or need other ODs.

    The Who or Pink floyd won't sell a pedal to me.
    I don't care whom he worked for.


    But yes...I guess some people might be star struck and just buy stuff because of the associations here. :)

    Don't waste your time for that. For this money you can buy a board of drives...

    You are definitely my hero. Again.

    I've been waiting for a review of this pedal since its release.

    I can't speak to the overdrive, but I have a clone of the SS-2 built by @johnk_10 specifically for bass (SS-2B model), and it's fantastic. If the overdrive behaves like the SS-2 you'll likely be very impressed.

    That was fast! I'm looking forward to your thoughts and recording. I'm kind of obsessed with OD, and this one's exotic.
