Yes, I just read the entire 8 page thread again & also took another good look at Jon's site, but I'm specifically interested in hearing from players who use strats & teles w/nonmaster amps like bf fenders & Voxes. Any info on how this pedal interacts w/others would be useful, too. My hearing's probably starting to go, as I seem to be favoring brighter sounding designs like Lovepedal Eternity and Timmy. There have been some notable exceptions like BJF HoneyBee and my new CrunchBox, but I'm finding most tubescreamer type circuits are too dark, congested & flabby for my present taste. I've made a number of additions to my board recently based on input from players here at TGP, and with the exception of the Zendrive, every single pedal has far exceeded my expectations. So, thanks for all your help, and thanks in advance for any comments you'd care to make about the suitability of the Blackstone appliance w/my rig(s).
