    I just got one and I'm diggin it. I'm using it in front of my AC30 right now and I'm happier with it than the AC Booster I had been using. The boost is great, I can move from rythm to lead in one click and no extra pedal on the board. I'm down to an Analogman CompRosser for clean boost and the TS-9 Deluxe for crunch and leads and my trusty Echo Park.

    No, I use the AC30 at church, so it stays there. I have a Fender clone at home so I don't think one would do the other justice.

    I will say this, the deluxe is 18 volt, this gives more headroom and to me an increase in the lows as well and maybe it's my imagination but the mids seem smoother too.

    I don't know, I dig RK's stuff, but $160 for a mod? sounds a bit steep to me...

    $160 !!! :NUTS

    I can appreciate what he's doing (wonder where he's putting the extra circuitry?) but that's pricey. Does that include the pedal?

    Here read this and save yourself some $$$

    jakeddy - I don't mean to sound negative - if you like it and it's working well for you then it's money well spent.

    $160 is to mod your pedal, $250 includes the pedal.

    I just saw that, it VERY simular but I'm sure there's some difference. The US Price is $192ish plus shipping.

    Not exactly the same, no boost (as in adjustable volume boost). I'm hearing these are going for $192.00 plus shipping so that would be $197.00 or so. The Keeley was $249.00 shipped so I guess the boost cost me an extra $53.00.

    But it's got that COOL BLUE LIGHT. :p

    HA! After looking at your "interesting mods" I wonder wher he got his idea from? At least, it could be said great minds think alike?

    I need to hear one of your pedals sir.

    yeah you do. vaughan's assorted mods to ts9's should be on top of the heap of all those other guy's pedals; i've been saying it for years. the best of the best, imo. super versatile
