    I have one, they are cool. Very open, a touch bright, with a more raw and "clipping" sort of overdrive. Very upfront and able to push a lot of lowend if wanted. I like the pedal, the EQ, but probably wouldn't use it for heavy overdrive settings. Hope this helps...

    Thanks guy. Those things sold out in one day I believe. Brad Whitford has had one on his board for a while along with the Klon he and Joe P both seem to like.

    I have one on my board & love it. I use it as a mild overdrive, clean boost w/some grit. I also like to stack it with my Fulldrive. Lotsa hype, but it is a great tool for me.

    Right here
    Were there some on the MToyz site recently? I check every once in a while. Where does it appear on the site? I hate waiting lists.

    edit: okay, now I see where they are listed as out of stock.

    I use a Tim at the end of the dirt line. Amazingly transparent overdrive, with an also amazing eq. It just plain makes everything sound better.

    Interesting pedal board!
    Could you please tell me what kind of pedal is the green pedal?
    Which patch cables do you use?
    Which pedal board do you use?

    Thanks.
