the jekyll and hyde does sound kick ass..a friend of mine has one and it really beefs up his strat..he plays that thru a JCM 900..sounds wicked.I hope the jemini sounds as good and better..

Even the stock DS-1 has an amazing tonal range. Mind crunch to chunky rhythm to searing lead with a single turn of a knob. And to mine and many other's ears, sounds good through both cheap transistor amps as well as big tube rigs -and- is a good starting point for many well known mods such as Keeley's. All for just 40 bucks.

Even if the jemini were two identical distortions, which has been proven to not be the case, it would still be an extremely versatile pedal. And I would imagine it would sound better/different than a stock DS-1 and include an even wider range of gain and tonal possibilities.

Yeah.....It's the best pedal I've ever tried!

On the TS-808 side it adds a bass boost option which really adds bottom to the traditional 808 sound.

On the DS-1 side it adds a added EQ knob and a sharpe/blunt switch whick I think makes this side sound even better than the Keeley mod.

I can really get any sound I want out of the Jekll and Hyde.

It will be interesting to hear what the Jemini sounds like.

I'm still relatively new to pedals and such. I got a DS1 for Christmas and love it, so whats the advantage to having the Jemini over a DS1 and TS? Does 1 less connection make the overall sound better? Less power consumption? Will too many connections ruin my tone?

EDIT: Also, what Tubescreamer do you think this is similar to, the TS7 or TS9 that I'm looking up on Musicians Friend?

Hey bobtrack - its been a week now. Is the Jemini so good that you can't stop playing long enough to share your thoughts with the rest of us?

Why are you guys so anal about it being labeld OD and Distortion? Can you not remember Left and Right? I've never seen such animosity about labels.

The pedal isn't actually available on the market yet.

We'll be posting news about it on Vai.com when it is.

Peace,
