    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.

    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!

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
