    I just came home from NAMM 2008! I had a great time.

    My BF Pro Reverbs safely arrived at Eminence booth... but both (2 amps) reverb pan were broken!!!

    Luckly enough to find CE distribution booth and I ordered 2 pans... then someone from Eminence borrowed his friend 's reverb pedal. I had a extra adaptor.

    Man, what a great tone from this pedal! I am glad that what happend both reverb pans.... Great way to meet new friend and fantastic gear!
    I just order Mr. Springgy for my upcoming tour in Japan.

    Here is a video.... Jamming with Gary Morse (Lap steel player for Brooks & Dunn... Nashville studio musician).
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Et-2aQoKz6M

    He was using my '67 Pro Reverb with Eminence's Wizard & Governor... with Mr.Springgy pedal. Od pedal is visual sound.

    I was using my 65' Pro Reverb w/ Eminence 's Texas Heat & Red White & Blues... with brand new reverb pan from www.tubesaandmore.com
    P-R4AB3C1b Great tone! and my od pedal is BB Preamp.

    that is pretty sweet! Quality of the vid isn't quite good enough to really capture the reverb but that some great playing!

    I was there watching when you jammed with him. Looks like you were having a blast! Sorry I did not meet up with you after that.

    Have fun!

    Mike,

    I had a great time. It was just pure fun...jamming... great conversation through music. Gary is a heck of nice person too! If I was playing by myself... you could interupt me.... Hope I meet up with you next time!
    Maybe in Nashville...

    Does this reverb sound good in the loop? I know the guys at Van Amps recommended that you don't use their products in the loop, rather in front.

    I did see the Fuchs booth, but no one was playing each time I walked by. I saw Andy messing with knobs and showing some stuff, bu was hoping to see either you or ScottL playing.

    I knew you were comin up at the Eminence booth though, because your Clay Jones' and that strat were chillin :)

    I was there 1pm on Thursday and 11am Sat & Sun. Sorry about that. I was busy and wasn't on TGP that much. Next time I should post my schedule somewhere...

    What day did you see me at Eminence booth... I was using my CJOD or my Ethos pedal... Thursday & Friday... then Friday...Sat & Sun.. I was using my BB Preamp or CJOD.

    Thank you so much for your kind words.

    I don't know. It sounded great just plugged it in... I never use pedals in the loop so... it doesn't matter. Maybe you want something bigger?

    It just simple one knob and small. I am happy to find this at NAMM.

    I think I must've been at the Eminence area around 3 or 4pm, the cool thing was that it was right near a major walkway, so you guys got a ton of listeners.... wish I could've stopped and said hi, I kept telling my friends about your DD2 Delay youtube video :)

    Is that strat a John Mayer strat?

    Don,

    You always fun idea! I will tell Lee about it.

    Great pedal! I will bring Mr. Springgy to my Japan tour next month.
    No worry on my reverb pan.

    Did the quality of the reverb change when the amp was overdriven. I have that problem with my Verbzilla. As soon as I put some overdrive on it gets boomy.

    Great playing Tomo, really enjoyed the pictures. Where were your settings on the BB Preamp?

    66' Pro Reverb was here at home. I shipped my older Pros at NAMM. Actually I have been using that 66' Pro Reverb (the one I got from you) went NY gigs... working lessons... Doing great work for me.
