    I'm actually playing mine at the moment trying it out with different amps/cabs in amplitube3, I love it :lol: it's surprised the amount of songs that sound great with this pedal.

    Edit; Booker T & the MG's Green onions is a Blast on it:cool:

    i still like mine. i personally did not think the c9 sounded great but iv not heard it in person.. i think the b9 sounds better.. each to there own i guess is the saying. i think my next ehx pedal will be a pitch fork. seems you can get some cool drone tones with it... like the sintar peal but cheaper.. but i guess if i had the cash a pog could do all that +.

    Not for me. I enjoyed it for a few days but we have parted ways. I just prefer playing guitar, lol.

    I was going through my patches on my newly updated Boss GT100 (the new 2.0 firmware) and found a new Organ simulator pedal model.

    Incredibly fast polyphonic tracking, tweakable & footswitchable for vibrato, etc. pretty much sounds same as this.

    Nice!

    Had my first shot at playing through a B9 this week. My initial impression is about the same as I had before I played it. A) It's like seasoning on a steak. Nice if you don't over do it. B) It requires some knowledge of how an organ works within the musical scheme in order to get it right. Meaning it's very "technique" driven.

    With my CS Nocasters I found it better using just the neck pickup and with the tone rolled back quite a bit. Not muddy, just not full on dimed tone either. Some organ models require a little more high end than others but the pedal itself can shriek like a banshee as far as highs go.

    For my style of playing and my usual spot as a guitarist in any all guitar band I could definitely get some use from it. Now I want to try out a C9 to check out the differences.

    I use mine all the time. I always wanted to play B3 and now that I've adjust my playing style to it I feel right at home on it.

    just open it! I mean, you do have to fill out the warranty card within 15 days anyway, why not do it before you forget? ;)

    That's just so they have your address and know where to find you in order to implant that chip in the back of your neck. ;)

    I waited for these to be out for a while, before biting the bullet, and read reviews-threads etc... Damn, this thing is fun and I'm breaking out the Booker T, Procal Harum, and Sam The Sham riffs baby. love this thing. At my next gig our fans better bring their roller skates!

    I'm hoping to pick up a C9 this weekend at Guitar Center.

    I'm torn, though. Our band could really use a PA system, even a cheap 200 watt system, for our rehearsal space, but the C9 could also add a lot of interesting sounds to our eclectic set list. Frack! I just don't know. I've wanted a B9 for forever, and now the C9 looks so awesome!

    Well would you rather have a PA where people can hear you or a pedal? Unless you want to become an instrumental band. By the way used B9 pedals are showing up on Reverb.com. You can probably snag one cheap now that the novelty has worn off.
