I own the BSIABII. I like it a lot but here are the issues. 1. Not enough bottom end. 2. Sounds great at low (home) volume, but at band volume gets lost in the mix. 3. Very noisy. Would the Brownie be any better with regard to these issues? Main Guitar: Partscaster EBMM EVH w/Guitar Fetish PAFs. Surprisingly, the pedal sounds best (most Van Halenish) with my stock Mexican Tele, but alas, no whammy bar. Amps: Peavy Classic 30 for low volume situations. '71 Super Lead for louder situations- but run at pretty clean- volume at 3 or 4. (I almost never have the opportunity to crank this one up or I wouldn't need the pedal, right?) Same issues apply with both amps.
