    I have an audio kitchen big chopper, single ended 4 el84's, 30 watts.
    The second channel is fairly flat, and works really well with Dr Robert. My cabinet has a blue and greenback.

    I think they tuned it on a el84 equipped dr z amp.

    I want to tell you that I want the Dr. Robert, Lonely Heart, White Pedal, Magical Mystery Box, and the Rubber Soul

    (today at lunch with my bro we saw a beautiful boat named Day Tripper sail by, and I started feeling major Beatles love)

    I have the Jext Telez pedal. I really like it as an fuzz thing of its own. When I heard the demo of the Aclam, I heard a lot f similarities to it, but I guess it must be different in some ways too.

    It is believed that jimmy page used one of these amps in the studio early on in zep, most notably with ‘the lemon song’ , and you can really hear it on that. It’s got a unique tone that the jext nails. It’s very
    possible that he used it on other track too, perhaps around the ‘BBC sessions’ recordings?

    Great, I use a Monoprice EL84 so it’s good to know that it plays nice.

    Listened to the demo more, looks like the pedal can get really fuzzy too with the mids and gain cranked!

    The website has clips for different settings on the pedal to emulate Beatles songs, from Sg Peppers, Rain, Paperback Writer, Taxman, etc.

    I received mine week before last. Much more versatile than I expected. Love it!

    To me, it sounds/feels more like an amp channel than a pedal, if that makes sense?

    It's a fantastic pedal. I just got mine today and played through it for 30 minutes and it's got it's own thing going. Excellent chime where the chime sticks out but you can hear the bass in the background. Great note separation in the cleans and it can get all kinds of fuzzy when using the mach button.

    Pricey but worth it, imo.
