Hey Keilnoth, there is a small spot on one of the pots that crackles as I pass through it but I imagine a bit of cleaner would fix that no worries. I don't have any problem with the stacked dials 'sticking' though when trying to turn one of them.

My gripes are pretty minor. In general, the knobs feel a bit flimsy which contrasts sharply with the whole heavy duty feel of the pedal. The other thing I don't like is in dim light you can't see where the dials are set, there are no markings.

On the positive side I do know a number of users have switched out the stock 12ax7 and gotten some great results with aftermarket tubes.

One day, I will open it and try to fix the crackles and sticking knobs... I think there are small screws on the side of the ring knob. Perhaps playing with those will fix the sticking problem.

Changing the tube is a pretty good idea if you are not satisfied with the stock one. smile.gif

Go ahead! smile.gif smile.gif

All you have to do is edit Keilnoth's review and add yours in there too, that's the idea behind mini reviews, having all opinions in one place, here's an example of the MT-2 stomp with a couple opinions:
