    How useful are you finding the TC Quintessence and are you happy with it?

    I admit it: I have a pedal problem.:eek: PB#7 is now under construction with El Pescadoro, Keeley 1962x, Friedman Golden Pearl plus some others waiting for a space.

    You're hooked. When do you find time to actually play guitar?

    Two Ubangi! I also thought two of the same pedal was nuts then I got the Fuzz Ray, Now I have two. I guess I am a special kind of twisted. Onto the real question, how do you like the Lex? Did you ever use a Neo Vent? I would love a good rotary pedal.

    I'm usually too busy to play because I'm always posting on this forum, my priorities are shot to pieces. :(

    I have 2 Ubangis just in case anything happens to one of them, similar approach to Atomic Brains and some Keeley pedals: The Abbey Chamber and the DynMyRoto.
    Before the Lex I had a DLS RotoSim, but changed after I heard the Lex which I like better, never used a Neo Vent.

    It's great, for simple harmonies. And I have the tone print slots set up for octaves. It tracks and sounds better than the Boss PS-6 Harmonist. It's a nice as a harmonizer PEDAL can get w/o spending big bucks.

    Well, this is a "mini-final" shootout, as I've been through them all. I couldn't even list them all here, there's way to many to remember. But all the "big names", many of them multiple times.

    I'm selling an AD9, which is great analog, but it doesn't have modulation... which is why I'm now checking out the Carbon Copies (both of which I've owned before)

    The Adineko is a keeper- it's a very swampy, liquid, unique beast in the delay world. the TC is a great "do-all" tape delay. I just need to decide on my analog, and I should be done.

    Except....

    VOLANTE. :eek:

    How do you like the Adineko? Oops, read your last post after I posted. Good to know it’s a keeper. I’m thinking of it for my next pedal.

    Edited to add Oops sentence.

    Holy guacamole!
    I have three boards and thought I was nuts! I do get that they are tools and all serve a purpose. Looks like lots of fun and great sounds to be had there!:)

    I like the pedal stand you made. Looks good for tweeking pedals at home.

    A couple of things about the Adineko:

    1) there's nothing else like it; and I'm not kidding! It's like a delay AND REVERB in one, but they aren't 2 separate effects... it's actually kinda' like the old school Sun echoes: part echo, part reverb. Kinda reverb, lol.

    2) it's got a "preamp" effect, it's not just mixing your dry signal with the echo; it's also affecting the dry signal quite a bit; like an Echoplex would (several people now make Echoplex preamp pedals for that specific purpose), it sort of removes all the rough edges, warms things up. That's part of the reason it's swampy.

    There are a couple of long demo videos on youtube, they are definitely worth watching if you buy one, because it's not like a "normal" delay: level, repeats, time... there's more going on... you really need to understand what each control does:
