This has to be a joke. This is a bit much for even the worst corksniffer.

    If I didnt know better I would think this was a funny underhanded way of making fun of how people here are about pedals. :messedup

    I dont think a tribooster + a step should equal $350 though.

    If you love that ugly, botched relic they use for their graphic, you're going to love the tone of the pedal.

    *pssst!* none of the buttons works (and it'll wind up selling for $3000. on ebay in a year).

    What about the Klon? Or any BJF? Cornish??
    I think we're talking about a misdemeanor offense here. GAS pushing with intent to sell.

    They don't resort to this kind of BS.

    Maybe James Lipton will have it on a show - "The pedal's studio". "If you have not experience the orgasmic aural pleasure of this device's sonic pedigree and bliss, RUN, DO-NOT-WALK to your nearest boutique shop and procure one IMMEDIATELY..."

    They're layin' it on a bit thick, I admit. But, the proof is in the pudding (no matter how thick it is).

    Has anyone actually tried one of these? It could be great. Although, I admit I would'nt pay more than $200-225 for a booster no matter what it was. Never say never, I guess.

    As a luthier, I truly believe every little bit adds up...but that's a bit much, even for me.

    I remember Chris weaseling his way into the forum and touting it "anonymously"...till he got called to the floor and fess'd up.

    Can't wait to hear the reviews!

    Is that true? That's pretty funny! Kind of like Bob Levy writing an anonymous letter to say how funny he was on the Stern show.

    I hope it's a fantastic little box and I have no reason yet to believe otherwise. They just need a professional to rewrite their marketing copy (and nix their "guerilla marketing" efforts).

    If it's as good as they say it is, they have every reason to be proud of what they've achieved, but it'll sell itself without all that half-insane mojo rambling.

    I have to admit this is pretty funny !
    I bought the upgraded Rockett Boost and yes it is an awesome pedal, worth every penny. The pedal will speak for itself as more get into circulation.
