    Just wanted to start a thread dedicated solely to this amazing new offering on the scene.

    I was an early devotee of this pedal, getting one several months ago. It led me to seriously rethink tone. Because it sounded so good I ended up going much cleaner and enjoying the pure deep tone of my new clean"ish" sound.

    Yes, the Super 300 can get dirty if you want it, but it always retains that depth, even with the gain maxed.

    It also sounds amazing stacked into other pedals. My personal favorite so far is stacking it with my Diabolik. Second fave is stacking into my Blammo Perkolator, although truth be told, the Rusty Box/Perk combo is probably the best cleanish/dirty sound I've ever heard.

    Anyhow, just wanted to get this party started. Post your pics, thoughts, settings, sound clips if you care to join in. Here's a pic of my current "pedalboard" with the 300 figured prominently in the middle. DSC06725.JPG

    I’m in... the Superb 300 is the shizz.

    I’ll post a pedal board pic later, but I can tell you the that the Super 300 has been a disruptive force on my tone. Like @Peaveylover this pedal sounds so good, that I too have been completely rethinking my tone.

    I can't help but notice how different our knobs are set up. I tried running it at full gain last night and just left the knob there before I took my pic, but usually my gain knob is at 9 o clock or so. I do love pumping up the mids though. Basically it's impossible to make this pedal sound bad at any setting. I think this pedal is a real gamechanger and one of the most important bass specific pedals ever released.

    None, I do home recordings only. So I'm going direct into my MOTU M2. I may be interested in a cab sim pedal, but I'll probably get a cheapo mini one like a mooer or joyo.

    I’m running my 300 through a Mesa TT800 and a couple of Subway cabs, which sounds pretty awesome on its own.

    Is that why your settings on the pedal are tending towards neutral?

    That’s what I think.

    Between Dean and K we've got some heavyweights putting their names behind this pedal. Anybody on the fence should seriously pony up and join the big boys.

    I cut the highs but set the ultra high switch to "on" and have it set so that the bright switch kicks off this really good dirt. It's sounds insanely good. I've been thru a ton of preamps (rack and pedal) and DIs over the past few years and this one is a keeper!

    I run mine thru a Quilter BB800. Great amp, works with Preamps very well!!

    Same here. I was a Fender tone stack devotee most of my life, but this pedal had a lot to do with changing the way I think about my sound. I just sold an Ampeg SVP-PRO, and I wouldn't have sold it if this pedal didn't sound so damn good.

    I’m in the next batch so I’ve got a couple of weeks to wait still. Looking forward to it though.

  15. I just snagged the last unit of the current build batch. I am rather excited to try it with my Two Notes CAB M+ and DSM OmniCabSim Mini. I also want to see how it well works on guitar that “Stones” vibe.

    Remove the 'bright' footswitch and make it a mini toggle, put it in an enclosure half the size with top jacks, and I'll order one right now and have a Super300/SV-PRE/Fliptop/Slampegg knockdown dragout of 'Ampeg in a box' pedals!

    So you DID get the last one from that batch, which means mine will be shipping in late March. :(
