    Anyone have one of these?

    I've been watching some of the demos at PGS and they sound pretty darn good.

    The Chameleon sounds particularly good and has really warm sound to it from what I can tell.

    I agree with you. They seem to be pretty cool and unique. Anyone tried them?

    i really want one of the java distortions.

    it seems like the only place to get them is PGS or the hipkitty website.

    I had the Cream Distortion. It was really nice. I liked it with Humbuckers, it hissed to much with single coils, that's why I sold it. I bought it used, the guys at Hip Kitty said something might have happened from the original owner, & that they've never heard of that before. I'm gonna try another one again.

    The Oxblood is an absolutely amazing pedal. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase anything from the Hipkitty lineup-- truly outstanding stuff! And the customer service is also above and beyond!

    fellsilver,
    Do you own the Oxblood? If so, any info (incl. what amp you're using) would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the Chameleon. I use it as a boost with a bit of hair. Interestingly, the gain knob goes in the reverse direction that what you would expect normally (cleanest = cranked). I don't hear much difference with the harmonics knob (2nd vs 3rd order), but that is likely because I am using it as a boost... but now that you have me thinking about it again, I may go and fiddle with the settings again.
