    Thanks! I was looking for a pedal that gave more boost than grit, but could get slightly gritty if it were dimed or if I dug in. I tried out 4 or 5 different things, and the Mesa was what I had in mind. Funny thing is, it wasn't even on my radar at all, so the salesperson did a good job! I also finally did myself a favor and bought a good quality Monster cable. I've always gone cheap there. So, I'm hoping these work really well in my setup.

    BTW, if anyone is in the South Houston/Galveston area and looking for a local music store with good service, check out Guitar Hacienda in League City. They also had a Silver Falcon and a Caddy Green 6120. I looked at them, but knew I better not pick one up and play it! LOL

    Happy birthday, man!
    Mesa products are usually great. Have not tried this one, though.

    Cool! Big Mesa fan here, although I only own one amp (that's enough). That pedal was hand made about 2 miles from my house; I took a tour and saw where they put the pedals together.

    Thanks guys! I've been a fan of Mesa stuff as far as dependability for a long time. In my bass playing days I had the back breaking 400+ amp and powerhouse 1500 cab. Those were built like a tank for sure. I would've liked to try out the new mini head, not the recto, but the one based on the Mk series, but I had tunnel vision!. I hope to play with this pedal some tonight and I'll give a report tomorrow.

    finally ran it through my setup and it sounds great! It can either do a straight boost, sending more oomph to your amp, or it can get a little gritty where it really thickens up single notes. Sounded good through both amps!
