Okay, got some time in now! Killer, tomorrow i try it through an amp:D
All headphones so far, thats what i been doing alot lately, i just stuck it before the Brain, Morley, Memphis Sun and OBNE headphone amp and enjoyed, there's a hell of alot of good noise in that combo;)
I guess i should explain that setup, the Morley JD10 is all kinds of things but its mostly a badass amp emulator, kinda Sansampy, i have it set as a kinda AC30 sound, the headphone amp is pretty neutral, sounds like a board pre, so those two get me my basic amp tone and y'all can figure out the rest.

Congrats on finally picking one up! They sound killer. When you get your second one… my votes for a different color to better tell them apart.

That’s such a great looking classic Atomic Brain as well. :)

Thanks, that was my first Brain, it really is beautiful, rootbeer most of the time but shines green in the right light! These old one's are all hand done so grab one if you can, i got this some years ago here on the forum, got another one too;)
The stuff i love, that becomes essential, i like to have at least two of.

There's one on Reverb right now but its the same color as mine, still tempted! I'll probably wait for a new color scheme though i do love the color of this one, reminds me of ancient studio gear, like a old Altec preamp.
I have an original and the beer and blood red one or whatever the color was

Congratulations, I see that there is a blue and white one on Reverb.

I just got my second Brain (Mystery) thinking it would replace my Atomic Brain. Instead, I ended up having two Brains, always on, both a smidgen above unity gain. In my case it works well because they each have their own voice. The Atomic is deeper and fuller, it controls the bass. The Mystery is clearer, it controls the treble. Mind you, they are the same, just ever so slightly different.

I just saw the one like mine, its gone now. I'll just get another new one from Tavo when im ready, maybe a JrB. There's basically no price drop for used anyway.

Have you messed with the internal trim pot at all? Im digging the preset tones and ive been able to use all my (well most, too many to try all) electrics through it with great results, even the Jazzmaster! It really is a special pedal huh?;)
