    This is just plain nasty. There isn't a ton of volume on tap but fed into my recently acquired Blower Box, setting the Mini with low gain/max vol/aggressive sag to feed the Blower Box is nasty. Plus the two can complement each other. Think I found my new mini pedal board o' doom.

    Edit- Sorry for the iPhone quality recording. I recorded it into my looper > iPhone. Too lazy to pull out my Scarlett > Mac.

  2. The bias knob is SO powerful and integral to the Mini. It has a wide range of tones even without using the bias, but IMO/IME that control totally makes the pedal. Can't say I've ever tried it at such low gain like that, but now I'll have to. :)

    Yup. Played this set-up in practice and it just killed. I should have left the last note hanging on the audio sample because the decay is just amazing. Such dirty grimey tube-like tone.

    The thing with the Mini was to max out the volume and adjust the gain for functional volume with the primary intention to have the sag/voltage bias as the main factor effecting the color of the Blower Box.
