Giggity indeed! I like the sound of that!

I like to plug a power strip into itself. The current loop generates infinite free electricity!
I've come up with a solution that I honestly think works out best for one of both of us.

Seen the vids, haven't seen one in real life; it'd be fun to try one, or to have one on hand as a sort of 'Swiss Army Knife' utility tool that could sometimes be just the thing. If I had one I'd probably keep it around, but I probably woulddn't have it permanently placed on my pedal-board, and I personally don't feel in any hurry to get one to begin with... know what I mean?


If you have a TC Electronic Stereo Chorus/Flanger, you can get a similar enough effect to some of what the Giggity does by summing its two stereo outputs to mono via a Y-cord or the like and setting it to "PM (Pitch Modulator)"-Mode and dialing in thinner, brighter, scoopier, snarkier tones to taste via the pedal's Width knob. Great for getting funky single-coil cluck from a humbucker guitar. Think continuously-variable out-of-phase mid-scoop.

I can appreciate that Kev. I think mostly it's cool for those of us who don't have money, room, or inclination to own a Dumble and a Marshall. And this preamp could be just what my Fender Blues Deluxe needs to make me love it again. I'm all for getting the most of out every piece of gear, and $150 to turn a $700 amp into a tone machine is well worth it.

But like you, I'm not in any rush simply because I don't have any place to really play my amp as it is. Plus, I recall being very happy with the various distortion and overdrive pedals I already have (it's been forever since I've been able to plug them in). But it might be fun to check one out at GC and return it within 30 days if there just isn't much use for it.

The TC Stereo Chorus/Flanger is definitely on my list of pedals to get if and when I decide to get a new chorus. It's one of the few that isn't so obnoxiously over the top. Thing is, my TC Nova Delay already does a great subtle chorus-like effect, so it remains to be seen whether I will ever bite the bullet on the SCF. It's an expensive pedal if you don't use it regularly.

I love Voodoo Labs stuff. The Giggity sounds splendidly and the Sparkle Drive Mod is a killer little sod! I think I have some shopping in my immediate future. :thumb:

Don't get me wrong, revo', you and I are more or less on the same page here, really. I like keeping useful pedals on hand that I might not use all the time- :geek: case in point, my excellent Home Brew Electronics Compressor-Retro, or HBE CPR; it doesn't do very well with my Les Paul, but DAMN if it ain't magic with a Tele or Strat- ESPECIALLY a Tele! :cool:

I would :love: LOVE :love: to have a Sparkle Drive or Sparkle Drive Mod!

The digital-model of a Sparkle Drive that's on my DigiTech GNX4 is the pedal-model I most often use on it. I can get some really smooth Jazz-Rock kinda tones with it, as well as the more 'sparkly' sorts that it's generally more intended for. I'm sure that a Sparkle Drive Mod with a Giggity would do more of the same, and more betterer.

Haha! Yeah, I thought of exactly that too. In fact, I thought maybe Quagmire sponsored a pedal for giving your guitar porn-soundtrack-like tone. :-)
