No words.. I'm OCD about this pedal
I have been searching for the sound that this little box is capable of dishing out for a very long time. A lot of reviews state that the V4 is a total let down, but I can assure you that this box is nothing but sheer delight. A lot of people say it's thin, it's not, scooped, it's not, it's transparent as glass and it doesn't color my sound at all.Why would Mike Fuller degrade an Iconic pedal, so IMHO, as he mentions, he improved it with each version and now he's satisfied with the final version and so am I :)
Also using 18V is a must if you're looking for more headroom and it has a total different feel and sonic character.
I have a V3 clone which is the closest I can get to the actual V3 (I'm from South Africa) and although it is a different sound, I actually prefer this version, although I cannot say if my clone is on par with an actual V3.
The build quality of this unit is superb, the knobs, the switch, the enclosure, everything is just ROCK SOLID, so if you're back and forth about this pedal, stop and pull the trigger, you won't be disappointed, unless you're just not into this type of sound.
