    Hi Glynn,

    Thanks for noticing the healthy amount of gain in there! It's quite a bit more than a TS type of deal. I wanted to make sure that the pedal would be flexible. Blues, after all, doesn't mean whimpy!

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention,... the Blues Pro LOVES to play with other pedals. I got an absolutely stunning gain sound by stacking 4 Blues Pros together! The firist 3 had the gain at 9 O'clock, tone on 7 O'clock (all the way down), volume at 12 O'Clock. The last pedal in the chain was set the same, except I turned the tone up to 1 O'clock.

    Man, I'll have to try stacking. After playing with the BP for a while now, I can't wait to try the crunch box!

    You build one hell of a pedal Michael!!

    Mate, you're one hell of a guitarist!!! Those clips sound awesome! How did you have the bivalve set up? What tubes are you using?

    :eek: Thanks, I almost do the pedal justice!


    Nothing to fancy gear wise. I have the stock THD preamp tubes and a pair of GT 6l6 (rated '5') in the bi right now. The settings are the same for all the clips, except for the volume and more/less input:

    High gain clip: More, cut off, volume 12:00, treble 2:00, bass 12:00, attitude 9:00, no noise reduction, no hotplate, lo-V

    On the low gain clips: Less. cut off, volume max, treble 2:00 bass 12:00, attitude 9:00, no NR/hotplate, lo-V

    The rest of the gear was a boogie recto cab, a blue baby bottle for the mic, and my trusty 93 PRS with EMG's.

    I really love the THD stuff. Mr. Marshall does some very interesting things, and I have a lot of respect for that! I'm actually thinking of picking up a Univalve myself. They look like they'd be a lot of fun.

    I'm hoping to pick up a flexi, or perhaps the next amp that rolls off the THD think tank. The uni was very impressive, and I bet it kills for recording. I'd pick up one just for Garsed's slide tone!

    Can any Blue Boy owners chime in here on a comparison? I read Mike's great info on his site and am interested in seeing if there are other opinions.

    I love mine and it is most definitely a steal at $89.99 shipped! Haven't recorded any clips with it but, I'll remedy that soon. By the way Glynn, the tone in the high gain clip is divine!

    Thanks! This box has definatly got me into the flexi territory. I'd love to hear the BP in front of the flexi, so post clips when you get 'em down!

    Michaels pedals are the best IMHO....
    He can tell you, I am a huge fan....
    I have 4 of the original prototypes, which is now the Blues Pro, 2 Tube Zones(New and old model), 2 Blue Boys, Blues Pro, another new prototype of his, and the ultimate......Blue Zone......:D
    It's both the Tube Zone and Blue Boy in one pedal....
    I have been selling off just about all my OD pedals since I found MI Audio....
    Goodbye Tim, Klon, TS808's, RC/AC Booster etc etc etc....
    None of them even come close to true tone and diversity....
    And his customer service is second to none...
    Steve

    PS-Michael....I will be ordering 6-7 of those "Other" pedals by the end of this week....

    Awesome!

    I'm also trying to decide what my next pedal should be. I dont have a fuzz box, and the clips sound pretty cool. Any recommendations?
