    It's 100% not a Sunlion.

    Big Country had a great and unique sound.

    I'm expecting an Expandora. Stu G used one for years, and I bought one simply trying to cop his fuzz sound. Wish I had kept it, great pedal for soft OD or silly gated Fuzz.

    The OD/fuzz side seems cool. I'm interested in hearing the demo. I'm also wondering if there's anything fancy with the boost side of it, or if it's just a simple volume bump for before or after the OD/fuzz side.

    I would actually consider getting this if one foot switch is bypass and the other switches between OD and Fuzz with the boost knob activated . . .

    They teased an Expandora-type pedal a zillion years ago.

    Sounds cool. Can't wait to see what's going on with the controls.

    Hey Aaron! So the left side is a modified Expandora. Stu used these for years on all the well known records etc.. Its a fun circuit and the pedal turned out super versatile. Stu has been a blast to work with :)

    Seems to me like JHS did a little celebrating over the release of The Kilt and decided to get on TGP to rebut/defend.

    I don't get it, so it's supposed to be derogatory to write this off as a covert clone of a sunlion, which is in turn 2 clones in one box? There certainly are some blurry lines in the TGP imposed stompbox morality

    Is this different from the Stu G pedal JHS made for him? Been seeing it on his board and thankful to finally hear it if it is. Sounds great! Now I just need a 50watt Park and Stu G's fingers.
