I'm really intrigued by the Pigtronix stuff. The polysaturator in particular. I had a Sparkle Drive before my illustrious brother "acquired" it. The simultaneous tone thing is really cool, especially without lugging around another 4x10 DeVille.
I noticed that too... Seems kind of an odd design, however I don't think that would be an issue in my case as I have all of my pedals on a shelf hooked up to a gcx. I am going to have to try this pedal out!!
I love the layout, because I can turn it sideways to save space on the pedalboard, and have both in/out on top. If it works as advertised, it will be an "always on" pedal when I use the pedalboard, so there are no worries about knocking knobs around.
I have the Philospher's Tone.
I really like this pedal.
It is fantastic for sustain. I have mine after my Keeley Compressor, and I use it on and off with different pedals.
I dont use it for dirt, just to sustain my sound when necessary.
It does amplify whatever is coming into the pedal, so if you have a noisy effect before it, you will get loud noise coming out, but if you run a clean rig it is great for leads and really giving you some presence.
