    A few weeks ago, I tried to start the tour of the Abunai 2 and SEVERE... no interest. At the request of TGP member, I decided to give it another try.

    Email me with your info and I'll put you on the list. I'm not going to respond to any of these emails, so check the list for your name as I update. tftourbox (AT) yahoo (DOT) com

    Rules:
    1) Testers will be responsible for all the shipping fees to the next tester
    2) Testers have 7 days to try the pedal, then it moves on
    3) If the pedal gets lost some where along the way... the tour ends
    4) I would appreciate comments, but not manditory

    But most of all, have fun!

    Wow, that's really awesome. I am totally in for this when I can. Is there any way I can reserve a spot for something like 7-8 months from now?

    I'm guessing Canada can't join in on this tour box?

    I'm in for sure if allowed/approved to be. I'll make clips of it running direct, and through a number of other setups as well. Sounds like fun!

    When you send me an email, please use the address above and include your TGP name, so I can keep from using anyone's real name.

    This is a great start. I have the SEVERE box out to a TGP member right now, so I'm waiting to get that back. Once the SEVERE has returned, I will box it and the Abunai 2 in one deal so they can stay together.

    Thanks all!

    Severe Tourbox arrived today! All I can say is WOW!!! It can nail tones from AIC, Queensryche, STP, etc... Below is a spot on review by Guitarjosh. I have the same exact impressions with the pedal. The brite switch is a great feature on the pedal, it adds versatility to it.
    I will return this pedal to Dereck early next week so he can start the Abunai and Severe Tour box.
    I'll get one for sure!
    Here is a pic of the tourbox:
    I'm using a les paul and a Suhr Badger 30 with matching 1x12 cab. Sorry I don't have recording capabilities, so no clips for now.

    Just so I understand correctly, the "tourbox" comes with just two pedals Severe and Abunai?

    Was thinking of just taking the plunge without trying first but this tourbox idea has my interest as well. By the way, the Severe video on your site is absolutely a fantastic way to get an idea of the capabilities of this pedal. Who says you can't tell anything with clips!

    Quick update... I'll be meeting with the current tester of the Severe this Wed. I will have it and the Abunai 2 boxed up and sent out to our first tester on Thursday.

    I'm going to run through my emails and PMs just to make sure I got all the participants.

    Thanks and have fun!
