I bought this at Sam Ash Hollywood and the guy helping me made sure I had everything I needed and a good space to try it out. Admittedly there's no way I could've coaxed even half of the sounds this pedal had to offer in store. But the employee was so helpful even getting two different power supplies out of their boxes because the first didn't fit quite right. I really enjoy the through-zero mode on the Pyramids. The Pole Up and Down are awesome too and the trigger/tap button really opens up some creative options. As well as the momentary proprietary switching that Earthquaker offers on the bypass switch. The only other pedal that I think could come close to this is Free The Tone's flanger equivalent, and that comes in a bigger footprint if I'm not mistaken. All in all I can't recommend this product enough and all of Earthquaker's other offerings. I have several pedals by them and they never disappoint. Hats off to Sam Ash Hollywood and the one in Westminster for always having killer pedal selections and for their willingness to go above and beyond just to let a customer try out a pedal in a crowded store.
