    Its probably the same size as the TES. It looks almost exactly the same anyway.

    Last year, maybe. But Eventide and TC just made that thing obsolete. Plus it has to run on a DD-5 for the tap temp, not the real sought-after chip in the 2 and 3.

    Maybe not. Im sure you could wire up a small tap tempo board for a 2 or 3 but there isn't any info on which they are using.

    Maybe I should be more specific. The chip has to be at least from the 5, maybe beyond. The one you want, the one Pete uses, is from the 2 (and the early 3s had it, too, I understand). And it won't work with tap tempo, as Pete explained to me.

    Im not really sure about the chip specifics but I doubt its a bad sounding delay. The 5s are pretty sought after currently and I liked the ones I had. Its all personal preference though.

    Wow... and it's a clone and they want 1k for it... amazing. Heck, for that much money, you might as well get the original Cornish pedal.

    Can somebody please tell me when they're going to make a version that's affordable? I mean, c'mon here.... it's using guts from an $100 Boss pedal!

    Why builders charge this much for a delay is beyond me... especially with quality products like the Eventide Timefactor out for 1/2 that cost and a million times more versatile.

    You can use it as a pedal board. Velcro four or five pedals to the top and you're good to go! ;)
