    I was wondering about that, since you have amps that cover somewhat similar ground.

    I love my DB -> Heritage Colinial. That was my NYE rig, along with a delay and wah, and turned heads for three sets. Very nicely voiced pedal. A little small for my feet, but I wore pointy shoes that night, so no trouble this time (didn't take well to Docs, tho...).

    I just sold my v1 to a friend who likes the horizontal pedals. I LOVE my v2 with the trim pots. I'd absolutely LOVE to see a vertical v1 with a trim pot for the highs on ch1 and the v2 trimpots for ch2. Here's my little photoshop Dumb Bell. Maybe this will get Jay inspired for v3?

    I'll have one in the mail from a fellow forumite tomorrow, so excited! I'll make some clips with my tele and casino and post them asap.

    From the clips I've heard and the youtube demo with the rosewood tele[sorry I don't know your username off hand] I can barely wait.

    HA! Thats some handy photoshop work Frenster! Those stompers look pretty close together though - may be hard to pick one off at a show.

    Im making a custom Dumb Bell for a customer now - single channel with 3 knobs like everyone wants. The gain and tone are not like most pedals though - they make more subtle tweaks rather than big sweeps.

    Heres one I made a couple of weeks ago, dual channel with a separate volume control for each channel.

    I must say, v1 is about the coolest pedal I've ever seen...or heard! I just wasn't into the horizontal thing. I love the other one's you're coming up with!
