    I was wanting a reverb/tremolo combo for a smaller board and picked up one of these used fairly cheap and in great shape. Trem doesn't get super choppy, but it sounds great. Reverb is really nice and goes from subtle to dripping wet. Opened it up and Jack himself signs these, apparently.

    Congrats. I love my D+. It is presently my standalone pedal for two of my practice amps. A little extra trivia and what got me interested in it is first, it is the lush Fender bias style trem that it is emulating and second is that there are few trem/reverb pedals that have an internal battery pocket. This originally was on my all battery powered four pedal grab and go. A great pedal that I have considered buying another just to try to shoehorn the innerds into my Fender Greta 2w amp. Enjoy.

    Rod, your posts about this pedal are one of the reasons I ended up pulling the trigger. Thanks!

    I love the Rat, want a Hot Cake, and regret selling my RV-6!

    The Hot Cake is amazing with my Blues Jr.
    I love the Plate mode on the RV-6 for my standard reverb tone.

    Ok, good to know. I have a Blues Jr. III I'm running into with Mosky XP booster (EP clone) --> Caline Pure Sky (Timmyish clone) --> Rat 2 --> Deluxe Plus --> TC Triple Delay --> TC HOF 2 set at hall. I know those Hot Cakes are good with Vox amps, too.

    Okay, I gotta join in on the pics with @RetroTeleRod with a pic of my attempt to have 3 modular pedalboards. Didn't last long because of adding too much complexity, but my small board with the D+ was really all I needed for our local blues jams. IMG_2904.JPG

    I just got one of these recently to replace my Hardwire Supernatural Ambient Verb, which I sold, and my Suhr Jack Rabbit tremolo, which I’m about to list. Once I sell the Jack Rabbit and an Electro Harmonix Canyon delay, I’m also going to pick up a Keeley Caverns delay/reverb.

    Once I get a power supply for my new board and a Ditto X4 with the yet unease’s funds, I should be fixed for pedals for awhile.

    I have three amps. My Champ 12 6L6 for gigs, VHT Special 6 Ultra 6V6 for jams and practice and my 2W Fender Greta (power tube is a 12AX7) for living room fun. All three take the D+ exceptionally well.

    Try the 30 dollar Joyo Ultimate Drive with your Blues Jr...you will be amazed at how good it sounds with that amp...I have tried the Timmy..OCD..Hot Cake and a Klon Clone and many more dirt pedals with it...and the joyo was the best ...also the American sound is good with it.

    I had one. I loved the trem on it - made my Maz18 sound like my sf Princeton, but the reverb was a bit murky for my taste.
