This thread is ridiculous. And to be quite frank, insulting. Indian call center labor is far to expensive for the average pedalmaker. You'll get much better rates farming that work out to unemployed miners in Appalachia, although there the language barrier can be just as brutal as you'll find...
To be fair, those Tone-Lok series can suffer badly from crappy switch syndrome, much more so than Boss pedals. But I paid $25 for mine at a GC and they're available dirt cheap on CL and Ebay all day long, so its pretty much a no brainer. Every guitarists should own one at one point or another.
I have a Tim and its on almost all the time. I've heard a Klon...no thanks. Nice pedal, but for a fraction of the price either the Timmy or the Tim will deliver a lot more, and if you want that clean boost sound, sure no problem. Still not sure why people buy overdrives for clean boost though. :D
The DE-7 is one of the best delay pedals I've ever heard, analog or digital. If you're looking for a wash of ambient delay regeneration its really hard to top. I have one hooked up along with my DMM and it lets you get that same glorious wash of feedback but at much longer delay times. The only...
Throw an overdrive right after the fuzz if you can't turn up...definitely helps. I have a Tim right now but I've used everything from an SD-1 to a Fulldrive to a DS-1 with the gain down and even that thing helped.
Pretty sure they already did that:
I think its digital though, like most/all of the other XO sized things. I'm not a big digital/analog snob but I've always felt there's something a bit special about the analog flangers.
I think it was posted earlier, but just in case:
Has all the manuals, new firmware updated brochure, all the software, and there's a forum, although its been locked down since 2006, but probably some good info in there.
Yeah all you need is the unit and a power supply. Everything else can be snagged from the website for free. I bought mine new in the box and all the info on the site was far superior to what it came with.
