    Hey thanks man, @SubApathy nailed it.

    I bought it new from AM with the mods. It's a '74 reissue phase 90 and has the following mods: external mix knob, internal volume trimmer, orange LED, true bypass, and 9v jack. So it's the awesomeness of the 74 reissue with none of the drawbacks IMO. The mix knob makes it like a phase 45 but I'd probably leave that out if I ordered again.

    Very unique and cool board. Inspired me to look up some of the pedals I never heard of (Red Snapper, Earth Drive).

    thoughts on the Earth Drive? How do you like it? Does it clean up with volume knob?

    I seem to gravitate toward CB and need to try that adineko for sure.
    Total tragedy tho.

    I like it a lot. Yeah it cleans up with the volume knob just fine like any other low gain overdriver.

    I find it's the best pedal I've ever played through that tames your bridge/neck positions. So you don't get ice picky to flubby - it aims all your signal into what you want.

    Got the H9 the other day for $250. Got it home and found out it’s the Max! Running the dirt section into the loop of the Boss MD-500 so I can run certain presets pre or post.

    Great score! Craigslist find? I missed one for $385 on reverb as I was contemplating if I needed it or not.

    Really excited about this one!

    Most of the pedals on the board are ones I’ve acquired from the local pawn shop over the past 8 months or so including the H9. Also got the board and voodoo lab mondo that’s underneath there too. I typically don’t have a ton of extra money to devote to gear so layaway let me acquire some of these pricier pedals that I normally wouldn’t have been able to get all at once. The pawn shops around here tend to get really good stuff in every now and then.

    Man, I’ve lost so much time with this thing. It’s been an endless source of creative juice.

    Last Tuesday I had my first rehearsal after the Covid-19 lockdown/quarantaine.
    Was a bit lazy and just set the BD-2 with a fair amount of gain.
    Ignored the Smallsound/Bigsound mini and left the BD-2 on the whole night.
    I had so much fun ... the band I play in and the songs we are playing leave me plenty of time for me to adjust the volume knob on my guitar when needed ( never did that, used pedals for less/more gain and or volume )
    I can focus on my playing a lot more without worrying which pedal to tap in or out or stack or ...
    It's simple, but it works. Came home and took the mini right off the board.
    Still stoked from Tuesday that I can get by with only 2 pedals.

    Excited to share my new board. Selection of some of my favorite pedals. My son and I made the board from some scrap wood, stained, and velcro'd.
    Thoughts?

    Well small change to the main board. I need to get the Harlot back on there but it will require a complete power supply switch which I'm not looking forward to.
