    There's a fairly lengthy thread in the stomp box forum about this pedal but how about we start a new thread here for everyone who's actually got one of the pedals and we can swap notes on different settings and their uses, useful tips, songs you use the pedal for and anything else that someone might dream up relating to this funky pedal?

    I'll start with a setting I found at the weekend which lets the guitar tone come through and have the organ tone just behind it to fill out the sound - very useful in a 3 or 4 piece band setting.

    Guitar control set at around 3 o'clock, organ control at 9 o'clock and modulation to suit the amount of rotary sound you want.

    This setting allows you to play full barre chords - with or without overdrive - as well as 3 or 4 note arpeggios with both guitar and organ tones clearly heard without overwhelming one another.

    I really like this pedal!!

    I've been using it almost strictly as an organ, guitar on maybe 8 o'clock, organ noon or 1 o'clock, patch #4 with the mod about 3 o'clock, and key click about 9 o'clock-good all around sound that works well with a lot of tunes-everything from House Of The Rising Sun to What I Say (yeah I know it's Rhodes piano on the recording! it still works!!)

    I just picked one up yesterday. Planning on using it with my Line6 MM4 with a fast and slow Leslie settings, going to make a patch on my HD500x to allow me to blend the organ and guitar as well as giving me volume control and a compressor ahead of it

    Aaaaah was hoping this thread to still be 'alive.' ..as I've only recently got my B9, I guess im a 'little' late for the party...
    Ive used an assortment of guitarz, and for the time being am using an acoustic 12st, and/or an IbanezAM200. Can achieve an almost perfect 'Hammond' push/pull effect using the 12st but cant get the dry reggae skanks to cut through. So, for live purposes I'll probably use the Ibanez. Also would LOVE to get a more subtle 'breathy' sound: alas Burning Spear type hammond. Hoping to devote a good jam to it later, experimenting with choruus, flanger etc. Any tips would be much appreciated. Also, can anyone recommend a half decent rotary pedal. Ive got my eye on a Boss RT20. Any good?
    Cheers Peeps x

    Hereby submitting my application for membership.

    To be honest, i haven't found a way to use it yet. I had trouble with the tracking and i didn't like the sound of it when playing chords...seemed too muddy. But maybe i judged it too hastily. Maybe i'll read something here to help me get a handle on using it properly.

    I want one of these! Tried one out when they were first introduced and had a blast with it. What a cool pedal.

    I haven't used mine since we got a keyboard player in the band, but I found it useful to blend one of the higher octave sounds (Cathedral if memory serves me) with the guitar to thicken up some single note lines without making them muddy.
