    I don't see much about this guy on here.

    I was doing a search for a nice Tremolo pedal the other day. I was pretty much settled on the Malekko (although they seem to be out of stock everywhere), and came across his (Chad is his name) "Crimson Clover" Trem. I have to say, from the video demo I saw (from JetyCityMusic), it's just the flavor I'm looking for! It can do a wide range of trem sounds, and has an added volume knob for some boost. It's also a great looking pedal with a lot of character (would look great on my board), and with a "too good to be true?" pricetag for a hand-wired, true-bypass "boutique" product ($130).

    Anyone have any info about this guy and his stuff? I'm really tempted to buy this thing and give it a shot.

    I have one and it's a well built unit, inside and out. Sounds pretty good too. I got mine used from someone on here but Chad was pretty friendly answering my questions and whatnot.

    I've bought the Fat Foot and Rooster Fist (discontinued I believe) from Chad and also had him do some custom work for me. I've always been blown away by his helpfulness and promptness. I didn't like the Rooster Fist when I first received it and he had me send it back and changed the tone pot all free of charge. I love that pedal now too. You seriously can buy with confidence. He's a good guy and will treat you right.
