    That's the Gain Changer. All the same build techniques from the big box stuff also applies to the compact models. Dave made zero concessions and didn't resort to board-mounted anything, including the LED!

    This is one pedal I've wanted to get my hands on for a long time...

    nah, there are some artist out there that I'm sure sell pedals based on their art work.
    Gone are the days of simple mxr graphics

    boss pedal don't really offer any real estate with the big black pad on top with room only for a line off type , I am not complaining

    Digitech tries and does some comparatively interesting art

    I own a pedal that I really don't like to look at, but it's a great pedal see next image,

    To me, MXR and Boss are the blue jeans and white t-shirts (or, if you're upscale, basic-cut 3-piece suit)...they're classic and never go out of style. There are elements of cut, collar, lapels, etc. that change with the times, but even in those times, there were basic classics. And you can never go wrong with them. Artwork is fun. Function and reliability are better. You know what you're getting with those guys.

    Oh, and I've been dying to try that Freqout pedal. I've been watching them on Reverb for a long time. How do you like it? Does it do amp-style feedback like a howling hollow body? Or something else entirely?

    Yep. Keeley Aurora Reverb. Love the sound, can't bare to look at the cheesey disco motif. I've considered replacing it for that alone.

    If I didn't already own too many delays, I'd definitely grab a Chic-a-delay. I love the stacked delay concept in a single pedal. Very functional.

    I'd also like to find an OD No. 30 with the astronaut graghics, or better yet, the stormtrooper graphic. Its a modified EM Drive.

    it does the classic yowling amp at the sweet spot, way loud type feed back at any controlled volume and you can chose the pitch of the feed back /++good/ horror show , john cale viola early Velvets feedback , Flipper the band feedback, a Ted Falconi tribute pedal was it worth the money Yes , howling on demand . If lost stolen I'd replace it.

    Cody at Westminster can now do custom graphics for any paddle you buy. I was considering a Fuzz pedal with a CFA sauce cup graphic and label the controls sweet , tangy
    Yup I can do that.....

    Yeah, the overdrive pedal I mentioned is a different builder. I think the Star Wars pedal is kinda rare. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a cease and desist order involved in that one. But the engine of it is just the EM Drive, which isn't a very expensive or coveted pedal to begin with. But any one of these are cool.

    I traded emails with Cody once upon a time trying to get some info on the Calvin Comp's architecture (I was curious if it borrowed from Blencowe's Engineer's Thumb) but got radio silence on that one.

    Bottom line.

    I depend on the sound, not the looks.

    I play a 12 string electric guitar. I have alot of compressors. I have alot I don't use. And I am currently building my own pedals as I work towards making my own Janglebox compressor.

    But about 5 minutes ago, I had to force myself not to buy the Marshall ED-1 comp, that I have never heard or even seen, because it's called "Edward the Compressor" and as a history nerd, I think that's fantastic.
