    I just picked one up....if you didn't notice, its $99 at alot of the major retailers. Big discount from what it used to cost. I gotta say that i love it too. Far better than any chorus i've owned previously.

    i'm sorry, i'm not set up to record and 99% of my gear stays in my bands trailer an hour from my house.

    Where did you get yours?

    Enough to make me dump my Analog.man? Doubt it!

    Hm. The demo video is especially bad--not that the pedal sounds bad at all, just the horrible demonstration of it. But I will admit the last half-second where he actually plays bass notes sounds pretty good, and has a Palladino flavor.

    I do like the pop-out-of-the-side Level adjustment knob..
    And all TRex pedals run optimally at 12v
    And German-made! :thumbs-up:

    nope. i think it's a danish company, but i heard they're manufacturing in china nowadays... :meh:
    it's a cool pedal, it sounds pretty organic. not as harsh or brilliant as let's say a digitech. i did some clips some time ago, but in a synth setup with some octavers put before: clip 1 clip 2

    Says the sweeper is 9v DC. Which is a nice change from many/most of their pedals. I've stayed away from many of their pedals just do to the off the beaten path power requirements.

    Ugh, tell me about it. He just gets done saying that it doesn't cut the low frequencies, then proceeds to play up at the 20th fret :rolleyes:

    Anyways, it's actually a nice sounding chorus. Doesn't kill my GAS for a DC-2, though. :crying:

    UP TO 12v, sorry. At least that's what I read when I was researching their power supply boxes

    Just got mine yesterday and it sounds great. Good deal for $99 on Amazon, Guitar Center and Musicians Friend.

    WOW! Thanks so much for posting this.

    I looked on MF but it said that there weren't any available. I checked Ebay and bought one from MacDaddy Music.

    I've been looking for a good chorus, and was looking to buy an analogman, but didn't want to pay that much. I can't wait to get this!

    The pedal sounds pretty good in the musikschmidt demo. I just wish I could understand German.
