I'm thinking of getting this pedal. Thoughts?



Here's the video detailing it.

Oh god no.

EDIT: They cloned the circuit inside Clapton's sig guitar and put it in a box and are selling it for $330.

It's just a mid boost that can be had for a fraction of that price.

True, but it's what Clapton and Buddy Guy has. Plus, you can use it for more than one guitar.

It's not even a clone. It's the $70 ($53 on eBay and via discount retailers) official Fender board in a box with a massive mark up. Bunch of ****ing clowns.

Like I said, buy the real thing for $70 and put it in a box yourself in an hour. Doesn't even look like that piece of crap comes with a power jack.

You really needed another thread after we told you it was an overpriced piece of crap?

Buy it. Best pedal ever and you'll be super happy.

Not sure if trolling.... You think the person demoing the pedal would know how to play guitar right

Lets take a $99 Guitar into a $99 Amp to demo a $330 pedal, make sure the guitar is out of tune and also be sure that the guy doing the demo can't play for shit.

If you're selling an overpriced $330/250 pedal I don't think this is the best way to go about doing things, what they needed to do was a full marshall stack with a few girls in bikinis walking around and slash playing the guitar, atleast.

If you're gonna sell stuff for too much money you gotta do it right! Girls in bikini's at the very least.
