I had a Malekko Spring Chicken and I can't lie. The thing sounds good. It has some of mojo that just enhances the way drive pedals sound into it. I suppose that makes it less transparent, but in a good, almost trashy way. The volume drop was REALLY annoying and it was worth a bundle so I sold it. I talked with the Lee Jackson guys about Mr Springgy since it also used the Beldin (SP?) chip and they promised no volume drop. It is an amazing sounding reverb clean or with a compressor pedal, but I don't like how it alters my drive and fuzz tones. It is subtle, but you loose some body or something. Hard to explain. Will likely sell this. I've read the other reverb threads on here and other forums. I am looking at either the WET or WAMPLER FAUX REVERB. Can anyone help me out here?
