    My BJF pedals arrived!
    Been waiting for them to complete my board:

    The PGC added some great sparkle to my sound. Still tweaking with the body knob. I had the RC boost as a buffer to push my signal through but the PGC does that well/
    The PPF (cool paint job too) was a complete surprise. I've tried a lot of different fuzz pedals and just couldnt bond with them. This is by far the most usable fuzz I've ever heard. Imagine a fuzz that allows you to still hear each and every note in a chord. Its amazingly articulate. Other fuzzes I've tried needed a slightly broken up amp or to be stacked with some other drive to work. The PPF works great on its own through a clean amp. Still working with the nature knob which sounds cool in all positions.

    Now I have too many drive pedals. :jo LOL I really like all the different "flavors" each pedal has. The RC is now my clean lead boost. This board is way over the top, what was I thinking.
    More experimentation is necessary.:RoCkIn

    Cant wait to try these pedals out at rehearsal.:dude

    P.S. A setting I like for the PPF is: Volume: wherever you want it
    Nature: 11:00

    NICE board...

    How do you like the AM mini clone? How do you use it - not for Lesliei-sh tones I'm guessing because you have the SCH-1 for that, right?

    Very nice. A Pink Purple Fuzz showed up at my house recently, looks just like that! Very nice settings.

    I like how flexible it is. It can pretty much sit anywhere in the signal chain.

    I love the AM clone, had a regular size one but switched to the smaller size for the space. I think it does a great Lesliei-sh sound, the SCH is works well for just cool deep chorusing sounds. The PPF going into the AM chorus with the faster setting sounds awesome.

    Yeah, I am amazed on how it sounds great anywhere in the chain.

    Opened it up to remove the battery, I guess Bjorn draws a little something in each one?
    Cant remember which was which, one is an ear with an earing, the other a foot.

    Sure.
    Analogman (Mike) makes a great pedal.

    Very cool!

    I'm waiting for a BJF pedal (PGC) right now and this thread made the anticipation even stronger.

    Great board! How does the Zen Drive fit into the chain?

    Right now I have the Zen last of the drives, I may move the RC to the end. The Zen sounds great stacked with the Timmy. With the PGC it sounds even better. Its my go-to lead pedal.:RoCkIn
