    Just got some new guitars so I'm reassessing my board and thinking this compressor might be something I could use.

    So, what guitars & amps work best with the janglebox? How does it interact with other pedals?

    Thanks,
    dave

    My JangleBox plays well with both my Mesas, a Nomad 100 and Blue Angel.

    As for guitars, I play a Les Paul Custom, a Les Paul Special (P90s), a Strat with WCR SRs, a Danelectro 12 string, and I just got a G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Semi-Hollow. The JangleBox loves them all.

    Thanks, guys. Great clips! Just called the toll free number and got a pre-recorded message saying the wat time was 3-4 weeks. Either this thing has really taken off, or they're building them to order.

    Have they always had a 1 month turn-around time?

    thanks,
    dave

    Recently picked one up...really adds a nice character to the tone across the spectrum. A bit brighter and deeper at the same time. Not exactly sure how the controls interact, but I like what I hear.

    Well, you're just the lucky little ____, aren't you!! I had to wait four, count 'em, FOUR weeks for mine!

    I'm kidding, of course. Welcome to the JangleBox club! :) You will be a member for life.

    Yup, got mine real fast. It's pretty much like an good old DynaComp w/a switch to cut or boost treble. Haven't found much use for the dark setting, but does it ever *JANGLE* in the bright mode!! Not a subtle effect- I almost sliced my head off the first time I kicked it in. Very nice in front of a low-gain OD.

    The Janglebox ranks as one of my all-time favorite effects...

    I had one on my board for a while and I really liked the sound. I ended up getting rid of it because for some reason I had to adjust the level constantly in gig situations. Using a Tonepress now.

    JEEZ!! This ole thang's popped up!?!!

    I don't even remember starting the thread, but, FWIW, the Janglebox's off my main board now - replaced by 2 compressors; Diamond & BJF.

    The Diamond's an opto-comp, 1st generation model.. very subtle compression, very good 'tilt' EQ circuit. This one's always on.

    Step on the BJF when I need *real* compression. It's everything I loved about my scriptlogo Dynacomp, but 'true'-bypassed & w/o the noise.

    Janglebox's in a rack drawer not gone/forgotten - This is one cool pedal that I still bring out occasionally, depending on the amps/guitars I'm using
