Does anyone have any experience with these pedals? They seem great, there aren't too many videos of good quality out there though. Can anyone shed some light on it's functionality and sound? Thanks!

I've owned a Fireball II ever since they were released. It's a great pedal that is tweakable for your particular amp and guitar. The construction is amazing and the enclosure is miles above a Hammond box. It's ergonomic, the shape protects the pot and external switch and it looks great all anodized and all. The internal trimmers and switch allow for a good range of treble and mid shaping. It's easy to adjust and sounds great from a mild breakup all the way to really ballsy overdrive. I'm kinda surprised that they aren't more popular really.

I've tried the Fireball 2-great sounding pedal. Similar to a Barber Burn unit, with a slightly different midrange.

I have a Fireball I which was a direct competitor of the Fulltone Fulldrive II at the time. The Banzai was a bit smaller and slightly better sounding to my taste. I've always read great reviews about Banzai products, but their product line has not evolved a lot, that's certainly the reason why they did not become famous.

I had a Fireball II for several years. Didn't dig it that much as a dirt box into a clean amp, but it was a fantastic boost into an overdriven amp. Stupidly, I sold it, and now I'm regretting it, as I've come back around to the idea of boosting my gain channels. Sadly, I doubt I'll find a replacement anytime soon... :(

Update ~ I found one on the 'bay, bought it, and just got it a couple days ago. Sounds great ... actually sounds better as a dirt pedal into a clean channel than I remembered. Maybe my current amp is a better match for it? :dunno But I'm very, very happy I re-bought this pedal. :aok
