    As you will see in the video, I toggle through the different tones available on the three way switch. Fun pedal, lots of sustain!

    Haha, I'm not necessarily trying to sell pedals, just trying to be helpful.

    Thanks!

    WOW...that sounds nice & creamy rich, without being too smooth (if that makes any sense?) I had the first version of the pedal when it was first released and regret not sticking with it. You've really shown how well that pedal sounds in the hands of a terrific player.

    It really is a great smooth overdrive without being too smooth, I know what you mean radioboy950. It's a great alternative to other D-style pedals.

    Sounds great... I really like your tone here and the playing.

    Yeah, the Ecstasy, along with a reverb, has become pretty much my favorite pedal ever. At first, I'd used it for 'drive', but then I took to running it with the gain almost all the way down on the Smooth setting, mostly for a more 3D type clean. Then I had to get a Zendrive to use for the more driven tones.

    I don't know how to post clips, but I finally made a couple short, clean clips with the Ecstasy through my Carmen Ghia. I'd be glad to post them... what's a good place to easily host MP3 files?

    It's not that I dislike Strats, but most pedal demos with a Strat end up sounding kinda all the same and SRV-ish.

    pedal & playing sound good, to me!


    hmmm.
    when i play a strat with or without pedals, it never sounds anything like SRV;
    the same goes for most of my friends, marc ducret, wayne krantz, oz noy, matte henderson & jeff beck included in that very broad bunch of strat-players.

    but, that's neither a point-of-pride nor meant as any kinda disrespect to SRV:
    just the facts, ma'am;
    just the facts.

    I just meant that a lot of amateur YouTube demos of overdrive pedas by beginner players end up sounding all the same, and often like bad SRV (and I'm not referring to anything roknfnrol has done!).

    A lot of my favourite guitar players use Strats, and really I think a Strat in the hands of a pro player can give the widest spectrum of sounds and overtones/harmonics compared to other guitars.
