I like it, but channel one seems a bit fizzy sounding. Satchurator or this... Hmmm... The Satchurator is more versatile IMHO...I own one and I think it's got an edge over the Jemini because you can blend the two distortion channels and the range of tones is very broad...There is also a lot more gai...

Right that's it. Your off my christmas card list. I could care less...I really don't care for stubborn, ill-informed opinions which are not substantiated by established facts. At which point did I state they are selling the pedal in England for £50? I didn't. What I was demostating was the value of...

99.00CAD=50.0361GBP No offense, but your calculation doesn't show anything besides a lack of understanding of basic economics...Are they selling it for 50 GBP in Britain? No! The price in Britain is 85 GBP, which is the equivalent of $168 CAD. The Brits are paying more for the pedal, not less... :r...

..which is equivalent to $168 Canadian. Nice try.
So you don't see the correlation?
Sure I do...It's a lot more expensive in Britain.

Steve's Music Store, Toronto, Ontario, Canada...They gave me a quote over the phone of $99 because they have the best deals of anyone in the country, but when we went to pick it up, it was listed at $119.

Utter Tosh! Wood isn't required for great tone: No but all the best songs ever recorded have used wood. Different woods give different tonality's. Either being surface mounted or in the body ie:pups. Every single aspect contributes to the tone. For example... your pic. If I were to use another type...

I think they are highly over-rated IMO...I think a lot of people neglect companies like Lovepedal, MI Audio, Subdecay, and many other boutique(ish) companies who put out far superior pedals IMO, in favour of the popular brands available in any store, like Boss, MXR, Digitech etc...

I should imagine that as a professional musician, Steve has his strings changed for him every gig and probably during it too, sometimes, not just for the perceived loss of 'tone' (which I doubt is significant at a gig at such loud volumes), but due to trying to avoid string breakage during an impor...

How often does Steve change his strings?

Just wondering how long a set will last him for one guitar, both at home and on the road. I would assume his strings on the road last only one show...

What point did I miss specifically? I didn't miss a thing...You said "nobody can even get it yet". Is there some hidden meaning or coded message in what you were saying? :roll:
