    Just picked this up last weekend. Haven't had time to plug in yet as I was doing some traveling for work this week.

    I picked this up at Shroeder Audio in Chicago last weekend when picking up an amp. This is their new Apollo OD. Completely hand wired pedal. It's suppossed to be a super flexible big fat and warm OD. I just wanted a new toy to try. Will plug in this weekend for a tone report. Tim Schroeder and crew build amazing stuff. His new amp receives rave reviews - so I figured this should be good! Sorry for the bad phone photos!!!

    I should also mention the main reason I haven't been able to plug in yet is it's power supply only. I'm mainly a battery guy, and don't have a power supply handy. Need to buy one asap! Maybe a Voodoo Labs or something. Any recommendations?

    for just a single 9V the 1-spots are nice. Boss 9v are fine too. Just as long as it is a 9V tip negative (like most pedals).

    I stopped by Schroeder tonight to pick up my Jazzmaster (great work by Sam at Schroeder, BTW) and saw those Apollos. Didn't have time to ask Tim and the guys about it, but I'm intrigued. Any impressions yet sickboy or are you still getting the power supply lined up?
