    Yup. Just get it. My buddy ordered one and it was sent to my address for him so he wanted me to exercise it for him before he came to pick it up. He is lazy so I knew I would have it a while. (Ended up being mine for almost 3 weeks!!!!)

    What a fun peddle. It sure does that jangly Vox TB thing. I was very impressed!!!!!!! Yes make sure it is the 8 knob version..

    It is also quiet when cranked.

    I think Music Toyz has them in stock.

    Ok

    HERES THE DEAL!
    Every time ive asked questions about gear everyone says just buy it and return it( not just this forum, others as well). I DONT WANT TO DO THAT. I want to read reviews, hear demos it, at the very best demo it myself. But sometimes I don't have 200 just to try something.

    Im not mad but seriously.

    There has been a great deal of discussion on this pedal in the past. You can get many opinions on this pedal and its competitors by doing a search.

    I've got one and I think its great, chimy, amp-like, tweakable. The boost is very good and I also use it in in front of my Hao Sole Pressure. The TBIAC is the main pedal I use. YMMV.

    Just buy it and keep it because a search will tell you that people love it. FWIW I sold my AC3CC AND my Bruno UG 30 because this pedal, through a blackface style amp (in my case a Bruno Cowtipper) becomes an AC30.
    Period.
    Enjoy.

    What amp are you playing through? If it is a Blackface Fender or any BF inspired amp then I can assure you you will be more than happy with this pedal. It goes from light sparkle to full out AC-30 grind and all points in between. As stated before just do a search and you will uncover lots of threads on this little wonder.
