    You guys make me want to try one of the Amptweaker pedals but damn...I really hate the way they look lol. Might try it out though, maybe I can put it in a different housing or something.

    You can order a custom one with any color scheme you want.

    I get what you mean. They are not classy looking. BUT...they are one of the most badass and sturdy looking pedals around! They look like they can take a beating (which they do) and have a very functional design.

    They can even double as a weapon since they have heft and weight.

    I briefly owned a Tightmetal Bass Jr and didn't really jive with it because:

    A: The bass versions are revoiced for bass, and since I play baritone, I guess I should've stuck with the guitar version

    B: It was the junior, I should've went standard or pro for more eq

    C: Also should've gotten the presence/resonance mod installed

    But I have to agree with the above. Out of the almost hundreds of guitar pedals I've owned or used over the years, that Amptweaker was literally THE best in terms of build quality. Fucking phenomenal pedal...

    Need a Fat metal pro with the built in depthfinder mod something fierce

    Well, it's not really the color, more so the shape. I don't like the looks of the Thorpy stuff either. But being able to order a custom color does help a little. Hm. Maybe...

    I would love to be adopted by James Brown to be honest. Or get into some sort of apprenticeship. Man is a legend.

    I really wonder what those VH-140c settings are that Mark and James used. I’ve got a VH140c preamp and IMO it sounds nothing like my 5150. Maybe I’m doing it wrong.

    My tightmetal jr works better with the eq pedal. My gear was stolen and I had been working in a pedal amp setup and now this is my principal setup. I agree with the "not so good" noise gate and I'm using my decimator. I'm really happy with my sound, in spite the circumstances and I think I won't get another amp

    It's a humble pedal, I'm using the delay only for solos , it doesn't sound bad, as I said before my amp, guitar and cab were stolen, i can't spend money and I was looking for a pedal setup with the ehx Magnum and all pedals that I already have at home and finally they bring me a great solution sounding reasonably well.

    At first glance it reminded me of the Ibanez DML10 I had back in the 80's. It's a Modulation/Delay pedal that would completely drain a 9v battery inside of a few hours. The Behringer though, has a phaser, pitch shift & tremolo that this one doesn't. Essentially, with the Ibanez, the 1st 2 modes are chorus/flanger settings and the other 2 are echo/delay settings.

    Tightmetal Pro is absolutely the closest to a "5150 in a box". The KSR Ceres does also sound excellent, but different.

    I thought about getting one off & on for years. The issue is that a new Pro here in Canada is over $400 & The Depth Finder mod is an extra $75 on top of that. Granted, there are a few nice tweakable parameters on it but it's still quite a bit of coin for a single distortion pedal. With the Preamp Live that I got, there are over 100 different amp sims to choose from in addition to a dozen or so boost/drive pedals and dual noise gates (pre and post amp). All that for $485 taxes and shipping included.

    Dunn DE1984/Redeemer. It's a straight up 5150 pre.
