Sooo I've read a couple of the threads on TB in regards to this pedal and have decided to give it a go. It's been out for a good while now hasn't it? I'll be letting you all know what I think! My plan was for this to replace my sansamp bddi. However i played this at a practice tonight and it sounded great, so now I'm not sure what I'm doing with it lol. I also read up on the source audio multiwave distortion pedal which seems pretty stellar as well. It seems to be able to do the same thing as the red ripper plus more and for cheaper (i am getting my red ripper for $130). I feel like the multiwave may be to much for me as far as options goes, but I'm the kinda of player that always finds/discovers uses for a pedal. Maybe it'd be more worth it to go with that instead. Nonetheless i will be trying out the red ripper so stay tuned for those who are also interested!
