let me add-just got back from <jmascis> @ slims(ear bleedin!) and everytime
i see him (or in the past-dinosaur jr) i wanna get out my experience pedal 
1. i got #2 but it is nothing like #1-dont ask me why...
the sound of that box is one of the most unique in fuzzdom-i have never
tried different levels going in like is suggested since i have no pots on 
guitars...but working w/ all the parameters that unit offers i get things i
have never heard any other way-its a one o' the kind type thing i think...
