@Dannyalcatraz - Well understood. Granular Delay was already on my list, which is why I got the Charlie Foxtrot. I also got it because it was more compact and less expensive than the other pedals I was looking at, like the Red Panda Particle Delay. Still, the wealth of functions in the Mood pedal help justify the high price.

@Mark Schmieder - Glad you got that worked out. Let us know when you explore some of the other features, I may have to get one, too!

@Caevan - While the Slow Attack effect is something that can easily be managed with an Analog circuit, my Malekko Sneak Attack is also digital. Malekko recently developed or acquired - I'm not sure which - a new DSP, which is the driving force behind the Sneak Attack, Charlie Foxtrot and Scrutator pedals. Not really surprising when you consider that one DSP chip in a MFX gives us a whole library of FX types and functions.

@Larryz - Thank you, brother, looking forward to it, wish we could meet up somewhere in the middle! Kansas City BBQ sound good to you?

In the meantime, I found something I had been looking for, at a stupid GC Used Gear price that I couldn't pass it up. I'd been wanting a Malekko Scrutator for a while now, and seeing them for $140-160 in the Used Gear listings. Too close to new price for me, once you add in tax & shipping, and I'd already picked up some pedals recently, so I'd been holding off.

Yesterday, I saw one listed for $110 in Excellent Condition at a nearby GC, so I was tempted, but decided to wait on it. This morning, when I looked online again, it had been knocked down to $100?!?!? I figured I was already saving $50-70, plus I didn't have to wait a week for it to get here, so I went and got it, dropped it off at home, then went about my day of gardening work. I'll have time to really dig in tomorrow.

BTW, it really is in excellent condition! No marks, no dings, no Velcro, not even any dust from the display case. IDK . . .

Woot!

Just out of curiosity, do you ever shop eBay or Reverb? I do, and I’ve found some good deals on them. (Plus other sites as well, depending on what you’re looking for,)

I tend to stick with GC and my FLUMS, because I want to have a brick-&-mortar store to return something, if it isn't right. The folks at my FLUMS have known me for a long time, so they always give me a good deal, and I like supporting them. OTOH, my nearby GC's often have their Used Gear at prices too low to pass up, like that Scrutator.

An even more absurd example - Earlier in the week, while looking for a power brick, I'd come across a Ghost Fire pedalboard (Chinese-made Pedaltrain clone) with a PP2+ mounted underneath, and all the cables for the PP2+, in a gig bag, for $39.99!?!?! On the same page, there was a PP2+ by itself, for $99. $39.99 might have been a fair price for the pedalboard alone, but with the PP2+? Didn't really need the pedalboard, but since I was looking for a spare power brick, once again, I couldn't see passing it up at $55 with tax and shipping. My plan is to keep the power brick, sell or trade the pedalboard, and come out having spent little or nothing for the power brick. My wife calls it "working the system."
