    I have been so excited to get my hands on one of these. I got it in the mail a couple days ago, but didn’t get to play it until today. I love it!!! So happy with it.

    I will have a big learning curve I think getting it to match up with my 1974 Traynor Reverb Master. I love the pedal though and couldn’t be happier!!

    I think you will be pleasantly surprised it isn't as difficult to dial in as it may seem. Some pedals you really have to work with but an hour with this one and you'll be good to go.

    Awesome!
    You can take this with a grain of salt, but here’s what I do:
    I set my amp (or amps!) a few notches below the volume I want to play at, and I use the MB preamp (I rock with the abby always engaged) to boost myself to playing volume.
    For example, I love my deluxe reverb volume at 6. So I set the amp volume at 4 and use the preamp knob (usually at around 1 o’clock) to bring the volume up to where it would be at 6.
    I rarely ever switch mine off.
    It adds amazing definition and articulation, especially in the low notes, and with barre or power chords.
    I can play without it, but I DON’T WANT TO!

    Oh, and the tape echo is pretty cool too:cool:

    Enjoy!

    Congrats! I’ve said for the longest time it’s the pedal that I would choose if I could only have one. Although my recent Nocturne El Pescadoro is now tying it. Luckily I don’t have to choose which kid I love more. I can love them both. :)

    Congrats on the new pedal!

    @calebaaron666 You should consider changing your avatar. Now I don't want to sound sexist or anything like that, but I can't see anything you write because I have to stare at those eyes :D. Who is she, anyway? A familiar face, yes, but can't remember where it comes from.

    It’s actress Sherilyn Fenn as Audrey Horne from the show Twin Peaks circa 1990.

    The epitome of dreamy.

    So it is! I know the show but I never watched it back then. Maybe I should have done it :D.

    so cal
    I was so in love with Sherilyn Fenn back during the beginning of Twin Peaks, it almost made me question my engagement to my girlfriend(now my wife thank God) at the time. Our friends would gather and we'd drink coffee and eat cherry pie in anticipation of each show. Life was so easy then. .....sigh (walks off, kicking an imaginary can)
