    Foxrox Cap'n Coconut value?

    For the build quality/sound quality, you'd still struggle to rival the CC2.. I owned two, and kick myself every time I see them on the open market. Also, even though it's out of production, Dave is such a great guy to deal with in the event that you ever have a problem with it. IMO... KEEPER...

    AM AR20DL, Jacques Prisoner, Malekko Ekko 616, Maxon AD-9 Pro or MXR Carbon Copy?

    If it makes you happy, stick with it man. I used to be a slave to the trends on here for fuzz and delay.. it's a never-ending battle especially if you have the funds to throw around. That said... you've gotta try the Deep Blue

    AM AR20DL, Jacques Prisoner, Malekko Ekko 616, Maxon AD-9 Pro or MXR Carbon Copy?

    The only problem about the AR20DL is availability... I totally agree with erksin that it's probably the best 300ms out there. Since you're chasing just one, you may wanna try and locate the AR20DL-XL... I think it upped the ms to 600... not quite the same as the DL, but you get a little more...

    Has anyone compared the Empress Compressor to the Strymon OB.1

    I've been leaning that way the entire time, but the ability to pick up a used OB.1 for reasonably less than new is the only thing that keeps me humming... I may make the leap of faith and snag an Empress soon... if just $50 sets it lengths ahead of the competition, I can't argue that. It sounds...

    Has anyone compared the Empress Compressor to the Strymon OB.1

    Which I find pretty interesting... for the price-point of a higher-end opto-comp, and its multiple features, I just don't get it. Maybe just because of the name people assume that it uses one of Strymon's digital Sharc Processors (which it absolutely doesn't), so maybe people are thinking...

    Thanks for the insight... and the links... since I did actually search for a 1 vs. 2 thread

    Has anyone compared the Empress Compressor to the Strymon OB.1

    The demo vid for the empress that Burgs has done just makes it sound like EVERYONES rig could benefit from having one.. Id still be interested in hearing from people who have played BOTH and could expand a little on their own experience. :)

    Has anyone compared the Empress Compressor to the Strymon OB.1

    I've heard good things too, and being that I've tried my hand at Ross clones several times, so the optical compressor seems like it's more my kinda pedal... and then of course there's the Empress Compressors that I've yet to hear any bad hype about.. These two really have my attention right now...

    Has anyone compared the Empress Compressor to the Strymon OB.1

    I'm really interested in trying out a nice compressor, and these two have piqued my interest. From what I've read, the Empress seems to be a hands down favorite, but I haven't heard much about the OB.1. Anyone out there A/B the two of them? I'm looking for more overall balance on my picking...

    Should i trade my big muff for a swolen pickle ?

    If board real estate is paramount, another option might be the Blackout Effectors Musket. It's a really tweakable Muff pedal that sounds great and it's about the size of an MXR pedal. Search for a used one and you can get them for a really decent price.

    Great Analog Delays?

    That guy is.. digital, but sweeter than most analog delays I've ever played. Never had any experience with the PCB version, but my old HW was amazing.

    New Klon Pic

    At one point in time I questioned the authenticity of the ebay auctions based mainly on speculation without ever reading anything on TGP directly from Mr. Finnegan. After his last lengthy response concerning the auctions, I'm almost ashamed of myself, and do apologize for my questioning the...

    Cheap(er) non-TS overdrives? BD-2 alternatives?

    And the OP also lists a few pedals of interest, so gauging from the samples given, one could assume that "cheap" doesn't necessarily mean the $20 or less rack. I think "reasonable" should be the operative word. But you're right it's probably just TGP, since a used Barber for the right price is...

    Cheap(er) non-TS overdrives? BD-2 alternatives?

    Barber LTD SR on the used market would be an excellent choice for a low-gainer, but when you push the level and drop the gain control it can get nice and creamy. Worth a look.

    WHAT KINDA FUZZ w/ a Barber LTD???

    Hey gang.. Just picked up a Barber Dual Discrete with an LTD and SuperSport inside.. I've basically got my whole board together with the exception of fuzz. I've played 'em all but never with the intention to have a permanent flavor on the board. Since I got the Barber I've been using the nice...
