    Cool. Thanks man. Anything else I should look out for. I just got it today and can't wait to get home and try it out. I've been wanting one for a good long time.

    Do you have a Timmy? If so - stack the HB in front of it set as a treble booster.

    Can somebody remind me again why I sold my HB? DOH!

    Mr McBroom retired, so there may be no more "new" hellbillys

    CB, congrats on the new pedal and hope you enjoy. if it's not your flavor, I know a local guy that's interested in buying it ;)

    From what I understood he was venturing from pedalworx but may be coming out with some stuff of his own. I am not sure though.

    I've got a Donnerbox HB.

    Here's the secret (for me): ya gotta max the Piggie knob (It's the "level" knob I think - but it's not just level, it "does" something else as well).

    This pedal is the sh*#!! There are a ton of tones in this thing. I put it in front of an Eternity and a Klon. It goes from a gentle shove to pushing the whole chain over the edge. Love it!:Devil muahhahah!!

    I never could max the level, it was too darn loud!

    Great pedal, and works well with others, including Tonefactor's new Huckleberry.

    I keep my HellBilly fairly late in my chain, but I don't always have other pedals on too. It does sound fantastic with my JangleBox compressor in front, and/or my Fulltone Clyde wah.

    I don't use it for a lot of full-out distortion or fuzz very often. I keep the Tone and Gain knobs at 1:00 most of the time, occasionally bumping up the Gain to 3:00-4:00. To me, the HellBilly sounds best when it's just on the edge of going wild!

    The "piggy" knob is a Bias control. I used to like it at 1:00, but yesterday I turned it up some more, like 3:00, and I like this setting better. It made the signal stronger without adding more distortion.
