Good and Bad

Ok I seen the youtube video and just had to try this pedal out. At first I was blown away by the cool effect that it does, and my original intention was to use this pedal on a few cover songs. I didn't want to add a full blown talk-box rig to my setup, so I thought that maybe this might be the ticket. There were a few problems that I ran into. The first problem is obvious. You can't add it to your pedal board because of the one piece design. The design itself is a good concept, but they need to come up with some type of attachment/holder for us guys that use pedal-boards. The next problem, and the biggest reason that it never made it into my live setup, was the lack of tone control. There is absolutely no way to control the bright harshness of this pedal. The sound guy was having fits. He'd have to roll the high end off every time I used it. So remember, with not even a basic tone control knob of some sort, you're left to the mercy of the engineers that designed this. You can only control two parameters with this. On/Off and the amount of fuzz. Getting there, but no cigar.
