    he77, yeah! well beyond versatile, even.

    and, it can get very, very extreme, with a vastness of possible sonic hues.....
    and is phenomenally responsive and musical:
    as are all of the PTD pedals that i've played.

    i've got a couple of tornitas, a mini-bone, a bone machine.....
    some deadly goodness, there, eh, mh?

    Sounds great!

    I love mine. It has so many sounds going on. One of the best Fuzzes I've ever played.

    By the way, I absolutely love your videos.
    Would you by chance have a transcription of your rendition of, Puff The Magic Dragon?

    Thanks guys for watching.

    It's worth the wait. This one has a new sili/germ switch. In future videos I'll play on the Germanium side of things.....

    Thank you Paul! Played it at a Blues band rehearsal last night and it just rips. Can't wait to play it with my own trio so I can dive into the more extreme settings....

    Awesome playing and awesome demo! I can't wait to get mine... I had no idea there was a red switch option though to switch to a germanium side. Do you prefer the germanium or silicon side?

    I suppose Paul might be able to chime in here, but is it being offered on the standard Bone Machine? Or the mini bone?

    There isn't on the standard Bone Machine. I think he only announced it as an option in late January IIRC, which is when I ordered mine ($30 extra). When did you order yours? You might still be able to add the switch to your order...

    Just the Bone Machine, as Paul said there just wasn't enough space in the Mini.

    The Germanium is more mellow. I like both sides.... Hard to choose one or the other.... For $30 extra, it's a great option to have. Here's a second video of just the Germanium side. I should make a video where I switch between the 2, but I'm kind of busy. Maybe soon....

    Well Paul changed my order to a Bone machine with switch. Hopefully this is the last time as I changed my order from Bone Machine -> Mini Bone -> Bone Machine with Switch.

    I can't wait.. just the sound I need for "Chameleon"
