    It's two buffers, one coming in, another going out.

    No, it’s a Digitech Bass Synth Wah. I like it better than the one made for guitar. You get bigger deeper sounds from it.

    As in 2 separate buffers, in and out, in one device? Or us it buffering one in and out in a special way?

    That's interesting, I was using an MXR Bass Auto Filter for awhile for the same reason. Then I found the Lovepedal Rubber Chicken, which is my favorite because not only does it not drop bass like all the auto filters do, it sounds more like an actual wah pedal than a filter, which is perfect for me, I'm not doing quacky Garcia sounds...

    I never got the hang of playing keyboards but I’ve always been attracted to electronic type music from Susicide to LCD Soundsystem. I use the Bass Synth Wah to get a big long moog like sweep. If you ever come across one, use those settings I have on that strip of tape and you’ll hear what I’m talking about. It’s kind of one trick pony but it’s a really cool trick.

    I actually use mine, in conjunction with a chorus pedal, to get a kind of Stevie-Wonder-keyboard sound, like on Superstition (I actually play that keyboard part on guitar with my band). So more of a funk application for me, BUT NOT the standard "quacky" funk sound you usually hear, I'm more trying to ape funky keys.

    Here is another for your consideration... BTW yes the mod can get a bit extreme, but is very easy to dial in sweetness. Skip to 10:15 in the video for an example of what it sounds like
    Here is my setup

    I've owned the Brigadier, twice. AND the El Cap, twice. My favorites have been (besides what I currently own), the Echosex and the Deluxe Memory Boy.

    The Echosex sounded incredible, but had a weird input situation: there was a switch to choose between 2 different input levels, and neither was unity volume. One was less and one was more. I couldn't live with that. But it sounded amazing. And looked ... SEXY!

    The DMB has an issue if you didn't put a buffer in front of it: it had a little tone suck, and I hate that. Plus the modulation controls were SO touchy, the sweet spot was SO small.... kind of a PITA.

    The Carbon Copy (regular) actually sounds as good as either of them, and is smaller, cheaper, and true bypass.

    I never married to the Strymon stuff. Something about it just sounded... plain... or something. IDK, hard to describe. When I discovered the TC Flashback, I preferred the TC models to the Strymons.

    I've owned (TC): Flashback, Flashback X4, Alter Ego X4, and now Alter Ego v2. I love the presets of the X4 models, but it's pretty large for a pedal board. So I went with the v2.

    Just for giggles I refinished the cases on these aways back. My problem now is that since I got my new Katana head I don't use it much anymore and at 70 I've forgotten which is which and what they do. Oh well. I guess It'll come back to me or not, whatever.:(:D

    That board should be dubbed Dark Matter.”

    It looks very slick. Do you remember what sort of paint you used? It has a nice and slight crinkle to it.

    LOL wow, now I don't feel so bad about the amount of pedals I own which still pales in comparison to a few on here. My next step is to lay them all out and configure them properly and then figure out which pedalboard and Power Supply to get. Did just pick up the TC Electronics Polytune and love it!
