I didn't believe the hype on this pedal until i heard it... now I find myself cursed --- finding something I totally want, but just can't have. (I don't do wait lists or $300 OD pedals, sorry) Well what are my alternatives?? need that singing, but still fat and juicy, dynamic tone that works as well with single coils as it does with humbuckers (its gotta work great with my tele). Not looking for a dumble pedal... more old-school mesa. Somewhere in between Santana, Eric Johnson, Neal Schon, Allan Holdsworth, etc. The first two are more important tones to me though. Gotta sound good with fender guitars and amps... what's out there??
