    I love mine.
    Best echo I've had since the Echoplex days.
    There are so many sounds & types of echo to be had in that little box.
    Give it time and enjoy!

    Just remember, you will have to dial in some boost and warm up the bass settings right after you set it up.. none roots rock guys set up the default. These will help

    Do I dial in the boost from the Atomic Brain, or from the Cap itself?

    i have been playing this beast for quite a few year but still wondered how to set up those secondary functions for a maximum rockabilly rendering. Thank you Mr TV.

    Are those preset especially done to be used with your Dyno/Atomic Brain ?

    Congratulations!! Probably the best delay I'll ever play! If I could I'd have two of them ;) BTW, where'd you get the sign? I know a man-cave that could use that!

    Mostly Brain, a bit of El Cap. At least that's how I do it.

    Have the Brain do what it does best. All the time.

    By the way, it took me some time to get used to the Age, Bias, and Flutter. Effects not accustomed to hearing.

    I have the Atomic Brain and the El Cap and love the pair. However, when I max the gain and use the abby on the Brain, I seem to get some clipping from in the Capistan.

    have you tried the Ubangi Stomp after the brain? I've had it before and after and I like it after.

    Yes, I had it that way originally, but it compresses too much, so I switched them.

    What about the built-in spring reverb? Is it good? Is it surfy?
