great pedal, great people, and a beer hostess who kept up to a dozen microbrews straight.

Who can ask for more?



On the gear side, I was most impressed by the pre-amp that's in the pedal. VERY Binson-like.

To my ears, the Binson always had a somewhat unique amplitude-domain/harmonic distortion content:

You get a little more warmth to the overdrive in very quiet as well as the very loud passages, while the vast middle area has a bit less distortion. (of course, the repeats get warmer thru each pass, etc) But the preamp alone makes for a nice effect by itself, and worth quite a bit.

Again, sounding very much like my Binson.

The 4 repeats are very well done. You get all the great syncopated action if you set for less than 4.

No arguments there. It sounds like an Echorec.

TB or Tails, your choice (just be handy with a screwdriver and dont be a klutz).

Superb oscillation ... swell upon swell ... cascades galore.

Howard rocked the place...no Steve Hillage runs tho....only slight disappoint....this thing is made for Hillage-like gliss.

....memo to Nic: get Howard to listen to bits of Fish Rising and see if that doesn't make sense for a demo.

Andy from PGS is a very friendly guy, willing to talk with anyone (even a low/no-profile sot like me).

And Nic. He is good people. I can't say anything more, and nothing more needs to be said.

He's a good man, loves what he's doing, and who he's doing it with.



All in all, a good time. A nice port in the storm (literally).


Job well done guys. And Ladies.

That pedal is well worth the cost.




PS: Castillo is very kind and cares for all of those around her.

Friends, coworkers, even itinerate sheep farmers.

I, for one, will hearby refrain from making the typical guy-comments ever again.



...unless she takes the first swing, then the gloves come off.
;)

 

:lol:

 

They're good folks. Thanks for the after-action report. Sounds like you had a great time! :cool:

You turn legal and your game goes to {censored}? You're doing it wrong.

 

 

My game has always been {censored}.

 

But yo, I got a secret club you can join, if you want.... We got club exclusives, a Christmas 45 coming out and enough pretense to fill a steamboat.

 

You down bro? Just need a $50 donation first.

I think you bailed at 9:32....that's the time that was on your iphone when you told Saul it was time to go.

mofo, I was standing right there waiting to introduce myself when you bolted.

 

 

 

 

...also no okra in that set of boxes.

What?! Why didn't ya stop me? I'd had a few and had to get home before it got any uglier. lol

 

 

We were talking so much {censored} about you after you left!

 

Get this. Randy introduced himself to me by LEE-furt Randy. And well folks pronounce their handles differently than I do. I didn't actually know who I was talking to until he said, "I have some pickles in the truck." And suddenly DUH! I had to give the guy a big ole hug and apologize for being a drunken aloof.

Oh and I have plenty of beets this year. Remember last year, Erksin, when you didn't even offer me one to sample? Remember? We're gonna send this guy an awesome care package!
