Well I just recieved my 3rd Captain Coconut. Seems like everytime in the past after I have been using the CC for a while, I start reading all the threads about this latest and greatest vibe or this latest and greatest fuzz, I sell the cc to justify the purchase of a new vibe and fuzz combonation only to comeback to the realization that the vibe on the CC is the best to my ears and the fuzz is as good as any that I have owned if not better. Well this time I had been settling on a vibe and fuzz. Mind you I didn't think it was any better than what was in my last CC and not as good in some ways, and I was itching for a octavia type pedal to incorporate in some original material and after all the research, I was going to get an Octron. Well after some thought and considering all the costs, I decided to just get another CC2. I have tried all of the "bad ass" vibes out there and several other Fuzz units, and I now can say with the utmost confidence that not only Does the CC2 have some of the best sounding effects but it is by far the best and I mean best value and bang for the buck. I have tried alot and I have spent alot of jack that I could have saved if I would have just stayed with my original captain coconut. So I am writing this for 2 reasons. One, to give props to Dave Fox for offering a fantastic pedal at a great price and two, to maybe help someone save a few $ by making a good solid choice the first time.
