Who uses them?
I think Brad Whitford of Aerosmith has one on his board.
Greg V ( nashville session guitarist , Jewel )
Lead guitar in Lonestar (can't recall the name right now).
George Lynch mentioned that he uses the Tim
Lyle Workman has orange Tim on his pedalboard
Doesn't the guy from anthrax also use one?
I don't know if it's still on his board, but here's a pic from a few months ago.
He might have ditched it - I've not talked with him for a bit...
Paul C himself! (I mean, rumor has it. I haven't seen his board.)
So in other words, no.
The thread used the word "famous".
Other than Brad from Aerosmith, none of the others qualify.
Of course, there are tons of boutique effects that are rarely in the hands of pros: Menatone, BJF, ZVEX, Tonezar, etc.
You know what a LOT of pros do use though?
So I looked up the definition on Famous.
Definitions of famous on the Web:
celebrated: widely known and esteemed; "a famous actor"; "a celebrated musician"; "a famed scientist"; "an illustrious judge"; "a notable ...
Famous is the fifth studio album from U.S. post grunge band Puddle of Mudd. It was released on October 9, 2007 on Flawless Records. The album was originally set to be released in May, but was pushed back to add more songs to the album. ...
Famous is an American rapper born in San Antonio, Texas. Known as Lil' Ken throughout his early years with the San Antonio group 3rd Degree, he has since changed his name to Famous and has signed with Chamillitary Entertainment.
Famous is the title track and first single on the third studio album by post-grunge band Puddle of Mudd, o. The song was sent out to rock radio on May 11 2007 and was officially released on May 21.

Well known; In the public eye
very well known
known and recognized by many people
A few things occur to me here:-
1) What are we using as a definition for "famous"? You've used a more stringent one that what I'd personally apply when posting on a guitar gear forum.
Some of these folks while not as historically well known as Aerosmith/Brad are still playing with Artists selling a lot of records (Jewel, Lonestar) and playing in front of a lot of people.
2) Is "famous" (as in household word) as valid as say "guitar player of considerable repute"?
3) Is it really valid to compare use of the products of really big companies with significant marketing budgets to the product of one guy who until recently wasn't even building as his primary job and depends purely on word of mouth?
so... so far just Brad...
Mr. T has one. .... and because of that...I'm buying one.
George Lynch has a new "mini" magazine with the new Premier Guitar Magazine and mentions that he likes it a lot.
If I dont know him,he is defenetly not famous!
So far only Aerosmith guy....
I dont care for hired guys tha play for semi famous pop stars 1
