    Anyone have any experience with these? I feel like MXR/Dunlop has been putting out some good stuff. Im very happy with all my Drive pedals (200lb Fuzz, barber DDSS, Occtone MKII and Katana Boost) however Im very intrigued by there joint product with CAE (Custom Audio Electronics which is Bob bradshaw who does ridic custom rigs for major stars)

    Here is the Boost and Overdrive

    Also, on the CAE Website - they are releasing a wah soon as well

    After years of modding existing wahs comes our very own "custom" wah.

    Features include:
    Switchable clean level boost with Level control and status LED
    Same circuit as the MV401 Boost/Line Driver Pedal
    Switchable Fasel inductors (Yellow and Red) for completely different voicings with LED indicators
    100% hard-wire bypassing

    So - anyone try these? Have any experience or clips?

    I have the boost, the older version. Neat little pedal to add some "oomph" when needed.

    I had the OD boost and hated it, the OD sounded very rough and jagged in my rig, the boost was OK but not special enuff to keep

    Same here. The 401 boost by itself is nice. I use one for the buffer only on a big board.

    I'm waiting patiently for the wah.
