Do yourself a favor...get this pedal. I found it to be really really good as an always on pedal near end of my chain...provides warmth, fullness, 3D kinda feel, adds touch sensitivity to my strings...all the time being extremely transparent. This is an exact vintage reproduction of the echoplex preamp. I a/b'ed with the MXR echoplex preamp, which is also a good pedal, but the Chase Tone is just better in all ways. I have one of Kyle's wahs (the picture clyde mccoy) and he just makes great stuff!
