    Bye, Strymon.

    I am sure there are guys that'll still want the individual approach with Strymon or the like, but for $1350, this wallops three of the big Strymon pedals in one shot.

    This would be pretty awesome all dialed in properly before a show. I do often end up tweaking drive pedals, comps, and delays mid-rehearsal/jam/gig, though, so it kinda runs into the same issue I had with the Line 6 M series, the Strymon Timeline, and most other modelers that don't have easy adjustment of parameters through knobs.

    It has been official for a while, they just put it in the shop for pre order.

    It's big enough as it is

    I'm trying to find a way to justify getting one of these but I can't since I still want a full fledged AxeFx and would rather use simple pedals with my tube amps.

    I don't see a location for the tubes.
