I got my Mystery Brain today. Only got to play it for 20 minutes... Its amazing. Thats all I can say. I have Boss RE-20.. Nice pedal, but it couldn't carry the the Mystery Brains jockstrap..

Really, I knew it would be nice, but its REALLY nice.. I didn't have time to really use it, but the little I did, I was impressed.


Thanks Tavo!

It's pretty awesome, isn't it?
I never thought I'd use that preamp, I had no real use for it, I just wanted a great tape echo. And I got a great tape echo. But it also turns out that that preamp does amazing things to Filtertrons and single coils. The preamp's on now more often than the echo is.

Pics? Which series is shipping now, is it the silver ones? Glad you love it. Think I need one!
I'll post pics later this morning.. Its the silver one. I also payed the extra $30 for the Toshiba chip..... The Boss Re-20 is a cool pedal, but thats going on ebay soon.

Just an update...( I promise to post pics)... I've only got about 45 minutes playing time with it. Had to work at my sisters all day yesterday and my brothers all day today... They've been robbing me of time with my Mystery Brain. I'm not one of these guys that can literally write up a review about a rock and tell you why you should buy it... But you should buy this pedal.. The Boss RE20 for instance, nice pedal, but I don't like the way it sounds with dirt... Thats just me, i've only played it with the Jr Barnyard, but it sounds great... I've plugged my Setzer Hot Rod and Esquire into my Vintage 47 EH185 replica.

Really, if you can swing it... Buy it.

How do you get a "wet" sound? :)

Spring reverb setting everything close to max on the oceans 11 reverb the wet dry is 50/50 on the reverb as well , my mystery brain is set 50/50 wet dry mix as well, I dunno it’s a rockabilly surf mix , but I can also with pick attack or playing style make the surf more surfy and the rockabilly more rockabilly then the ushaul mix of both spring reverb and delay pedals , either way my billy Brain pedal or mystery brain pre amp drives that oceans 11reverb so good !!

Got mine today! Again Tavo knocks it out of the park with another fantastic pedal. I’m at a loss for words on how great this pedal sounds.
Won’t be able to sleep tonight knowing there is a Mystery Brain rollin’ in the room next door.
