    It just has too many knobs!

    With pedals like these, It's like ( just my inability to make a decision) every rotation of every knob sort of sounds better and worse than where it was before, and you ( me) don't know what to do!

    ( I do like dirt pedals that have separate Bass and Treble, maybe
    even Mids
    But I get tripped up with mid-shift, notch, other options)

    I once has a Dunlop Tremolo pedal ( that had the 'purple side-nipple too),
    and it was too complicated for me- went back to ( then).cheap Boss

    Looks like fun...not sure I would use it but it looks like fun.

    It actually has the same eq setup of my old Peavey Combo amps...hmmm...Amp in the box?

    But, 18v is twice as much power. A guy named blowtorch should love things that are twice as much power.

    When you release the reliced version of your signature pedal, I’ll sign up.

    And you know, if worst comes to worst- I've got a Jaguar bass and I'm not afraid to use it

    I'll have to get back to you on that one, I've only run it momentarily through a modeled clean twin with a noise gate engaged.
    I have a live band prac tomorrow night and I plan to put it through it's paces then

    It would even be cool to have it if it really sounded stupid with guitar, like it was a chorus + 71 Hz HPF, with a swept narrow-Q band pass filter controlled by the venue’s ice machine.
