    I've got a chance to pick one up dirt cheap.

    Opinions?

    Thanks

    I've got one of the black ($199) ones, first one I've owned so I can't speak to how they might differ. Nice clean boost, useful overdrive, on the smooth side (not quite as smooth as a Mosferatu or Ethos). Not sure if it'll stay on one of my boards but definitely a flavor worth exploring...

    I have one of the current ones as well. I like it pretty well so far. I know I like it better than the white E I owned a while back, at least with my current amp.

    I don't own one (I own a couple of the "handwired" ones). But I played through one the other day; felt like home. It did seem to have more gain, which could be a good thing. But I didn't AB to mine.

    All I know is that it sounded like an Eternity. :cool:

    Actually it is pretty funny - a drug reference as MDMA (ecstasy or "E") is often cut with speed.

    OK, back to the thread.

    I have a Roadhouse that I love. Have not checked out any models since then.

    Cheers,

    Edward

    I have a Silver one with black lettering that I bought a few months ago at Truetone Music. It's street price was like $279. Is this a handwired one? Does anyone know??
