    I recently picked one up and love it. I play mainly 50s/60s Honky Tonk and Rockabilly music these days as my two main gigs keep me busy full time; so my days as half a dozen band's hired gun are pretty much done.

    Even though I primarily play solid state amps anymore, this pedal STILL does what it's supposed to do. I leave the first channel on all the time. It's gives me the liveliness and rich tone I love. I'm very much a "Fender" amp type of guy and this gives me that sparkle and chime and the fine tuning to not be an ice pick'y nuisance.

    The 2nd channel adds a ton of flexibility that I've yet to really make use of, but so far I like dialing it in for a more 40's Tweed tone..a bit more mid'y and honky a la Junior Barnard (while my main tone is more Campilongo/Roy Nichols/Kenny V into Gatton territory a la the Humbler Rockbilly era).

    Essentially it not only gives me flexibility but consistency from room to room and amp to amp.

    As a solid state guy, the one adjustment I made was putting it in the fx loop. MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

    As of now my rig is ALWAYS and ONLY a Hahn 228 with single blade pickups by Carl Bradychok, USUALLY a Tech 21 Trademark 60, and a Korg Pitchblack tuner > Wampler Reverb > Midnight 30 Starry Night Delay > Distillery all through the fx loop.

    The company hasn’t had ANY pedals in stock for going on two years. Anyone have any insight on this.
