    I've been wanting one of these for a while and finally one came up the other day for a decent price on Reverb. Any other users on here? What are your favorite uses/settings?

    It took me a while before I found one used ! I first thought I would use it for occasional flange or slapback but it has become my 'desert island' pedal ! This thing is so versatile, I just wish it could have 4-5 presets as I like to use it many different ways... So, it's difficult to tell you my favourite settings as they change from song to song. One use that I like is to go completely wet (blend at 100%) with a zero lag time and a nice amount of wobble (around 1 o'clock), this creates a slightly moving tone that goes well with chords.

    I had it as a saved search for a long time, and one went up for 265 a week or two ago, and it was gone almost immediately. This one went up for the same price so I snagged it right away (also comes with a favorite switch for saving a preset!)

    people rave about it

    I love it too. I really like to use an expression pedal with the Saturation control. Yeah, there are a lot of cool features in that box. Also got the Flint, El Cap, and Lex.

    This finally came in yesterday. It might be the most versatile pedal I've used yet? There's far more to it than I was able to get into last night, but the ease of which it can go from flange to doubling to chorus to slapback in unreal.

    Love this pedal. The tape saturation is great, but the tape time effects are amazing. Maybe some of the best dirty slap back echo I have ever heard, and I love setting to just slight flange with very limited wobble to get great ADT effects.

    For the first time I ran it out stereo to two amps, and when I set it to bounce was completely blown away.
