    Yeah I'd like to see some reviews of this one too. It would be very cool if I could use it to control the speed on my Lovetone Flanger.

    I might pay $30, but not $110.

    I see your point but I also see people buying crazier things for way more money.... :) Like Way Huge stuff. I saw a friggin' $99 pedal going for $285 on ebay because they didn't want to wait a few months... So I personally don't see the 100$ price tag that bad.... If I would have thought about it more and had patience at the time, I probably would have gotten the Deja-2. I also didn't know about the Mojo (if it was even available yet) at the time of my vibe purchase back in '99. These are just other options against this unit. The 2 mentioned above either - have or at least capable - of a sweeping speed control. I don't have good enough balance to play and attempt to control a knob with my foot during a solo. :)

    [FONT=&quot]I'm using one with my EP-3 to great..well...effect...heh...love it..obviously worth the price as
    1. I find it very useful.
    2. ItÂ’s less than a million dollars.
    3. I didn't think of it.
    4. Even if I did, I'm not handy with power tools and such...
    5. I program for a living and can't believe I'm paid so much to do such a thing, as it's so ******* easy to do and most of the time, seem pretty pointless etc..etc..[/FONT]

    Well worth the 100 bucks IMO.
    :AOK

    Radically expands the usefulness of any pedal.
    If you not gigging, I wouldn't buy one (just bend over your chair and twist!).

    How much are expression pedals (and they're pedal specific anyway)?
    Like get AM or Keeley to mod your delay for an exp. pedal, how much will that pkg. cost you?

    I have one. Get the attachment that grabs the pot just right for the travel you're looking to achieve and you're all set.
    It's a little short for your foot to fit on, but then again, it's consequently pedalboard real-estate friendly. Just get your foot used to the functioning and you're golden.


    BTW, anyone check-out "nondeplume" and his Nag-Champa music above? GREAT STUFF!
    I like the Guided-By-Voices vocals, the sounds are excellent and the production's right-on.
    :JAM

    FWIW - The HC reviews are not good.
