    Nice. The RM Boost is one of my favorite pedals. What does that wah sound like? How is it voiced?

    The Wah has a nice thick Hendrix/SRV vibe going on.
    Very usable sweep and no crazy harshness with the toe down.
    I don't think they will be on his site, it's more of a 'build on demand' custom order deal.
    The best thing would be to contact him directly.

    And yes...that RM boost kills! it sounds great paired with the Blues Devil.

    I think so (to an extent)
    I love my LF. I had been searching for a fuzz for 6 months, and the search ended once i tried the London.

    How "full range" is the dark side of the booster? My problem with treble booster clones, is that for what I am doing, even on the darkest tone setting they lop off too much low end. I have been wondering about the RM and the Addrock Boostmaster (since I love MJM and Addrock).

    How do you like the wah? Could you maybe do a clip? Tell me more about it.
    I think I'm gonna' get him to build me one due to a friends high praise of it- someone who I trust when it comes to tone.

    how does the RM compare to other treble boosters? like the AM beano or the DAM red rooster? I'm keen to get one of these pretty soon just not sure which one...

    Sadly, the MJM was my first experience with a treble booster.
    I went to Mike's place to try/buy the Wah and was blown away by the RM, so i left with that also :)

    Love my Blues Devil---just a great pedal--also the London. I don't know if it gets talked about much--but Mike is great at returning emails and helping out---I had an LED fail in the London---he was fantastic at walking me thru the fix. And I bought mine used!!! Unlike other pedal builders--I won't mention----they are AWOL ---even before the $$$ sale---I hate to see what their customer service after the sale would be like!
    MJM is a great company IMHO.

    He was great in the emails before I bought my custom London.

    Big fan of Mike's work myself. I didn't bond with the Blues Devil, but my London and China are tops. I have a BritBender in the mail too.

    You'll be glad you did. I have compared it with a sixties Vox, original Cylde McCoy and a Teese Picture Wah a long time ago. My favorite is the original Clyde and the Ulysses, though the Clyde is bit to trebley/bitey and hendrix-y for my taste. The Ulysses just quacks and honks the right way for me. And I don't know if your knowledgable with the original. MJM uses the "tropical fish caps" just like the originals.

    My good friend who's a member on here convinced me to it after telling me all the wahs he has (and has been through) and how he prefers the Ulysses to all of them.
    I've got a Pro Analog Supa Quack which I love, had a Pic wah (w/ FFT) that was great and an older Vox which was awsome. I'll see how it stacks up, though based on what I've heard it's awsome! Can't wait. Not a bad price, either. I just wanna' find a really cool old vox wah cases to house it in for that extra bit of mojo ;)

    I had mine in a regular Vox wah casing. Everyone thinks it's a regular Vox. :D

    I love how MJM's enclosures are smaller now, two years ago they were one step bigger.

    Does anybody know if the MJM foxy fuzz is available in that smaller enclosure? That would be nice!
