    Most things sound really good with Philip Sayce playing them. :dude

    MJM seems to like him. Lately, I've been more and more into the MJM stuff. A lot of what draws people to buy certain pedals is the sound clips. If someone makes great pedals, but puts lousy sound clips on their website, people are probably going to look elsewhere; probably.

    Don't get me wrong, Phil is great player. I just wished that he didn't play a'la SRV on every soundclip.

    he's growing to the polarized ranks of mayer around here... I can't say its' a bad thing because it turned me on to how good the guy can play so I chalk that up as a positive, but - yeah yeah... we get it; the guy rips but sounds too much like someone else for you.

    how about the sound of the pedal anyway?
    I like it.
    Rock on.

    This is my second Blues Devil. I've used my old one for atleast 5-6 years now. It never left my board.

    I get what you are saying. But think back to the late '80's-early '90's and all the bad SRV wanna-be's (Corey-somebody or other). I have heard way worse than this guy.

    Exactly. Another SRV clone.

    That's why I like Doyle Bramhall II. He could easily be an SRV clone, but he never went that route.

    I dig Philip, He's a nice guy and a fantastic talent I agree not doing the most original thing, but thats hard these days anyway. Again in his defense ushually your first influence is your biggest no? That should explain alot. I respect him and his talent. KWS is a SRV wanna be, Philip is not.

    DBII's originality reminds me of Hendrix.

    oh yeah , sweet looking OD!

    Ok not to go way off track but I love DBII...but he ain't got the chops to be an SRV clone. Not bashing DB cause I love his playing and sense of music but unless there is secret footage of him ripping Scuttle Buttin I'm saying he's not fast enough.

    if you've seen some of his earlier stuff you would know for a fact that Doyle does have the chops... espechially some of SRV's signature licks in the E blues scale while including open strings..

    back to the blues devil, what a great overdrive!!! :AOK

    He actually had a band with Double Trouble (Arc Angels). True Doyle probably can't rip like Phil or the others, but he does right better songs.
    And this cd is just a perfect blend of blues/rock and good songwriting.

    Oh yeah, back to the Blues Devil. IMO, it is the best TS clone with true-bypass, out there!

    Damn. That was an awesome clip. If the pedal makes me sound like that I'll take three. :D

    (And some talent pills, too, please :( )

    Last post but that's OFN and nothing there that proves Doyle can play half as fast as SRV or KWS or any other SRV "clone". There' more argument there for a Hendrix clone. No doubt there are a couple of SRV-esque licks there but that could be an Albert King influence and not SRV and they're not fast or "chops" oriented SRV licks.

    Buy a pedal from Michael everyone!

    Hey, I've had a very early custom (knobs are configured in a triangle, like a regular TS) BD for years now - My favorite 808 clone, but the crudely hand-etched circuit falls out when I open it up to change the battery! Most of the fire-engine red paintjob's gone too, but the pedals' still goin strong.

    What happened to your first one??
