    You weren't supposed to share that part about the diodes. That was supposed to be our little secret. Now everybody's going to want those, which is really going to upset bigfoot.

    Woody and organic, like cedar and dog **** mixed together. It’s greatest quality is touch sensitivity.

    Mine was delivered today. Unfortunately it was delivered 60 mins after I had to unexpectedly go out of town

    Man, that’s a bummer. Hopefully you aren’t out of town for too long.

    I'm curious, too. Hopefully, they are too busy playing them.

    It sounds like a proper klone. It has that nasal quality if you want it, a nice clean boost of course, and sounds nice at about half way on the gain. I haven’t compared it Head to Head with my af1, but it has all the qualities I expect from a klon style pedal. Plus it has pickdropper’s meticulous attention to detail.

    I forgot how ****ing completely awesome it sounds to boost a timmy pedal with a klone. I have Timmy on 70 percent gain, RC on slight gain. The result is like a very touch sensitive miab.

    I got the #5 in. Great build quality and perfect size. I only got to play around for an hour or so today, but I really enjoyed it. It pushes my amp quite hard. I know the original non parody design of this amp was the intention of pushing a bit more gainy amp but I find it works quite nicely with a very clean Fender style amp.

    This mirrors my experience as well. While I do use it to push the front end of a hot amp, I’ve spent a lot of time with it in front of clean Blackface Fenders (my Vibrolux in particular). I find the frequency response of the pedal complimentary to the amp.

    I got #7 while was gone fishing in Vancouver. I spent some decent time with it today, it is a killer pedal. It does exactly what I wanted it to do and what I expected, from a very nice robust boost right up to a healthy amount of hair and gain if desired. Really nice sounding and well built.

    I was using it in front of a Two Rock 10th Anni on the clean channel with a strat and it made it sound noticeably bigger, fuller, richer, and then you start using it to push the amp and it just goes to a lovely place. Thanks a lot, love it.

    It has come to fruition. I received #9 yesterday, and I should be able to test this weekend. Build quality looks great. This thing's purdy.

    For those who bought Reverse Centaurs and have been having ongoing PM discussions with me, can you forward me the discussions? I'd like to keep in contact and I accidentally clicked "leave all conversations" when cleaning up my inbox. Bummer.
