    I've come to a good point in my quest to downsize my rig as much as possible (right now it's a laptop, interface, crate powerblock and 2x12 cab) but I heard really awesome clips of this pedal on youtube and I am ALMOST sold on it, because I had a 5150 for over a year (which I loved and I still do) and this pedal seems get really close, just 25kg lighter :lol:

    But still I know that youtube videos can only give you a general idea, so if anyone tried it please tell me what you think!

    I have the P1, E1, F1, and today the S2.

    As far as the P1, I have never had or played a 5150 before so I can't really compare the two. With that said, the pedal sounds excellent imo. It feels and sounds like I'm playing through an amp instead of a pedal (it goes through an EHX magnum and a bogner cube). What's also amazing about it is it cleans up real well when you roll your guitar's volume down.

    If you're thinking about getting the P1, I would go ahead and get the P2 instead. The difference between the 1 series and the 2 series is that the 2 has a clean channel when switched off, but that also makes it a non true bypass. Another downside is the clean has a fixed eq since the eq controls are assigned to the gain channel only. But on the flip side, the clean channel sounds like a nice fender and doesn't really need to be eq'd.

    You should also consider the S2 as it sounds like the P1 boosted with a tube screamer - tight. The E1 I don't like much because to my ears it's lacking some low end.

    yeah. I got mine from pedaldog.com

    talk to tony over there. he doesn't have it posted on his site, but he has the S2, R2, and Vt2 in stock. his shipping is really fast too.

    anyway, i don't know how a soldano is supposed to sound like, but the s2 definitely rocks!:hbang:

    If I hadn't already spent my very limited $ on a Bulava, I'd be all over the Vt2. I really want to try one out to see how close it can get to that godly tightness.

    Maybe the Bulava will be able to do it, too... apparently it takes a while to send a small pedal from Russia to here. I think they sent it on the back of a Ptarmagin or something, because the estimated time was 3-4 weeks, when I was able to send a couple amps from here to just East of Moscow in under a week.
