    This pedal is top notch! I can't say enough about the sound, quality craftsmanship and the guys at Keely Electronics. Superior! I recieved an email reply from Robert himself when I let them know I had recieved it and was trying it out. Class act is all I can say!!

    That is one killer pedal. I have owned two of them, will probably have another - just great pedals. Congrats!

    how is this pedal, say different than the Fulldrive 2 pedal? or a Fat boost? I was thinking about getting a new O.D pedal myself

    I totally agree!

    I have the GL version and it smokes, yet is incredibly faithful to the original tone.

    I had my Strat sounding exactly like Tony Bourge's SG while playing "Breadfan" with the GLTMB kicking AM's SunLion into mayhem at tonight's practice . . . one super boost!

    It might be somewhat like a fatboost (never tried that one), but it's not much like a Fulldrive II, which is an overdrive. The TMB is a clean boost and germanium treble booster in one pedal. It will kick the front end of an amp that's already working and has some grit to it, but it won't impart the level of overdrive on a clean amp that the FDII does.

    Those are two of my favorite pedals.

    I bought Jkoeth's TMB point to point version ( only 200 made), waiting for it to arrive-should be any day now.

    I have a early version point to point and I can say that TMB is the best boost pedal available.
    Killer consumer service of Keeley and Legendary Tones.

    if your a 'leave a pedal on & roll the vol. down for clean',guy,the modern side almost maxed+an orange squeezer is a killer tone.

    I've got TMB #008, and you can't have it until you pry it from my cold, dead pedalboard... :dude

    That's the same quote I almost used when I emailed RK to let him know I liked it!!:D :cool: I was thinking of the "Meet The Parents" kung fu grip analogy though;). I'm sooo glad I finally bought it, I'd been eyeballing/drooling over it for a while now.
