    Sonny Boy Williams is one of the greatest ruggers in the world. All Blacks!

    Ha! Yes you did. And you sucked me in on that thread, too.:eek:

    Here's my reply in that 2014 thread:

    "I have two of them.
    I bought one from GC on closeout and went back the next day for another.

    I could easily live with it as my only od pedal. It was never designed to be used as a "stomp box". The switch is not robust enough for that. It was designed to set on your amp and set it and leave it. It also has cab emulation so it works well for going ampless direct into a board."

    I sold one on Ebay, and haven't used the remaining one in years. So I guess I lied about living with it as my only od.:oops:

    I'll have to get it back out and play around with it again. Each of those 10 stops on the dial are very different. Some are mid range honky, some are raunchy, some are smooth. The guide tells you what each voicing is modeled after. I still think it was ahead of it's time. That and the fact that it was NOT designed as a "stomp box", rather meant to be mounted on top of your amp or somewhere close to your hands, not your feet, maybe doomed it to obscurity.
    Oh- the 50's setting sounds much better to me. The 60's is a bit much.

    I should probably start bringing it to gigs just in case, because the amp sim is not bad, and no matter how well we maintain our tube amps, things can go wrong. You could use the Sonny Boy and go direct and finish the gig.
