New Toy Day! big pictures

Presenting:



A toyroom fx thread.



My new Overdrive!

I was on the hunt for a new overdrive. I wanted something with clarity, drive, and a great sound. I looked and looked and looked, and finally broke down and sent Mr. Green an email on his site. He was very professional, and listened to every need I asked for. And delivered.

I believe it is a Zendrive clone. It ridiculously transparent. It just turns my amp up a notch. Its tight, articulate, and so clear. Even with heavy gain the overdrive allows every string to ring out clearly. This pedal way surpassed my expectations. Insides were very nice and tight. Everything clean and clear. BUT I forgot gut shots. I have to leave the pedal up in Kentucky, and I live down in Nashville currently. I need a smaller cab for my JCM because only getting to play it every few weeks is killing me!

I even had the ridiculous request to have him to add the Mario Powerup mushroom on it. Its a good looking, and fitting design for this awesome pedal. Tim is a great man, and I must say, if you need a nice overdrive, send him an email over at his site. You will not be disappointed.
More pics!

I believe you that he built a great pedal, but I don't believe that he was professional.

Damn, he is being professional. Maybe he hired a PR person? That seems like BS marketing speak... Way too sugar-coated for my tastes.

Haha **** you guys, so he wasnt all that professional. But he did everything asked and surpassed my expectations. So its a win for me.

Except, where the **** is the batter supply? Lucky me I had an old boss pedal power supply around.
