OK, I tried a bunch of their pedals over the weekend. I'm not sure how to describe it, but it's definitely the sound I am interested in. At first, since I was at a super-high end store, I played through them using Alembics and Foderas, and then I realized that I may not be getting a true idea of what is going on since I am unfamiliar with either brand. Those pedals sound amazing with American P Basses and Rics. I'm going to have to bring in my Nordstrand to give them a good run. I guarantee I will either have the head or a preamp pedal soon.
