    I tone tested mine through a Marshall JTM45 RI just breaking up. Gibson Les Paul with Seth Lovers. Celestion Redback speakers.
    The middle toggle position is way louder and brighter than the left and right. L and R is real dark and muffled until the Tone and Voice are cranked up more.
    In the Left position a couple times it jumped way up in volume and treble, kinda like there's a loose wire???
    Right now my favorite tone is the toggle to the Right and adjusted brighter.
    I like the FAT tone it provides. Its different than my Barber Direct Drive and Super Crunch Box. I think it DOES help get Duane tone.

    Bluesky: Thanks for starting this thread or I would've never known about it this pedal.
    I put the toggle to the right and cranked the Tone and Voice. I loved the tone it gave me. Very unique and different than any pedal I've tried.

    Fantastic. I haven't explored this pedal fully but that's becuase it sounded fantastic as is. I don't crank the gain, about 11:00 the level just under 12. Toggle to the right. Just a beautiful natural overdrive. Loved it with single coils as well as hummer.

    Great ZZ Top La Grange or killer slide tones.
    What I havnt figured out yet is a great fat clean lime I heard in a lot of the demos and is really the Allmans tone. Fat cleanish with sustain. I just have to experiment some more with amp volume / master and guitar volume. But this pedal is very touch sensitive and dynamic.

    Highly recommended before the secret is out and you can't afford it.:fingersx:

    Right now I dialed toggle to the right with Voice up and Gain about 9 o'clock.
    Its kinda clean and lots of sustain for Duane type tone.

    I'm away on a work trip until Friday:(

    But glad you are enjoying it Bluesky! And thanks for finding this pedal and recommending it! I didn't get a chance to bust out the slide when I was messing around with it, I'm willing to bet any objections I have with the tones from the toggle switch will be much better suited for that sound.

    As I said I have been using clean Fender (Deluxe Reverb) and Dumble profiles as I wanted a neutral base for the pedal, but I definitely want to get it in front of a Marshall as I'm sure it reacts totally differently.

    Thank YOU Gentlemen!

    Jody did all the heavy lifting doing all of Dickey's solo parts! He really nailed it. He's from the UK and I'm from Long Island. Collaborations like we were kids on the same block. And he's a little more than half my age! SHOWOFF! LOL

    We also did Soulshine. But rather than guitar, I figured out the Hammond B3 part Gregg does. Again, Jody NAILED Warren's guitar work!

    I hope this new pedal inspires all of you to Rock like an ABB guitar expert! BRING IT BABY!

    There was five of the Duane models from one vendor on reverb for $199 yesterday. Today it says qty=1 @ $229. Too spendy for me at them moment, but I'm pleased with the tonez I get using this with my Rte 66 or my 5E7. We do a ABB tribute set at certain shows and this gets it done with either amp. I'll wait for early adopters to start flipping the peacocks then grab one. :cheers:
