    I love my Flint... but that's because it's flat out one of the most versatile reverb/tremolo combo's out there... hands down... and it actually sounds good... LOL.

    I'm interested in their tape machine too... among others. Pedal-genie. Yadda yadda... I will be getting an Empress Superdelay from them to try, and will be trying their tape machine soon too.

    Got to go with Ruger9 on this one. Which exciting overdrive tone is this going to cover that hasn't already been covered by the 100's of overdrive pedals out there? I have had a boat load of them in my life from just about all the builders and manufacturers. I can't get excited about another od. When I use OD it is the BYOC OD2 gets about most of the OD tones plus an independent clean boost.

    I agree with you. I tried some OD pedals in the last year, not many of them but the most significant (imho) for each "family" of circuits that suits my playing style. I realized pretty soon that even if most of them were fun to use, I noticed many overlaps between features/functions and most of them were not crucial for my setup. I'm sure I saved lot of money (which I spent for other gear) but it's a road every guitarist should cover for sure, I'm not saying that distortion pedal are useless. I ended up using a Carmen Ghia for dirt tones and a Princeton for cleans with a couple of boosts/ODs.
    I don't expect from Strymon anything different from other dirt pedals in the market to be honest, but I'm curious to hear some review.

    This pedal actually kinda reminds me of my mesa. It's not trying to capture A sound; it's designed to let you find YOUR sound.

    Two of those pedals I don't have to live vicariously through you for. I got em.

    But how about giving us some demos of those Strymons.

    Would love to if I knew how to upload videos ( and had a decent camera ) . Forum member nickurso has done a few and there very helpful . One thing I like about Strymon is the way they hold there value if you ever want to sell them down the road . Example - Strymon new $300 , used $250 / Boss new maybe lets say $130 , used $55

    The only way I can upload a video is by publishing it to YouTube first then copy and paste the link

    By the way how much are you loving your Big Muff. I basically got mine by accident and it just might be my favorite pedal. Now it's not the most versatile, for example hasn't been used during a set at church, but just playing around at home I have the most fun with that thing. It's real close between my OCD and my Big Muff for favorite Pedal.

    Great pedal and enjoying the trip back to the 70's once in a while ....lol. Just pick up a used Jangle Box and that pedal is just awesome too . Maybe one more pedal and my board will be done for this " play at home mainly an acoustic guy " player .....:)

    I played through one of these for a little bit the other day when I was demoing the Dr Z Z-Lux amp I just bought.

    I only took a minute to dial in a mild OD sound and thought it sounded really great, then a lil flip of that mids switch and bam, solo time. I think I want to get one of these to really sit down and fiddle with. Not sure I reeeeeeaaaaally need it but if I keep the Z then I'll be freeing up a spot on my pedal board where my trem pedal resides so, I mean, I need to put SOMEthing there right??

    I've had a Dyno Brain in chevy orange for 6 years now, but a mini atomic brain is what resides on my board these days.

    I still haven't been able to beat the ubangi stomp, that and a brain cover a lot of ground very well. Right now he's not making them but I think there are rumors they will be showing up some time in the future
