bump for the fact you know you need these settings.. Smile

Bump to thank all who blazed trail about settings and also contributed some advice, especially 'Nowhereman' and Mike for his demos & persistence. I finally went & played one at the shop now that they're a Strymon dealer and Holy Cow is this thing wonderful. Been cleaning up the detritus of previous GAS phases and will pick one up in the next week or 10 days.

One thing I did note (some advice from Ivan that turned out to be true) is to pay some attention to bass rolloff (secondary function on the Tape Age knob). Clockwise rolloff of some of the bass from the echoes lets the luxury flow longer without getting in the way of succeeding notes. I tested this in the shop and it makes a big difference. Really versatile pedal (unless you're someone in a Shadows tribute band with a dedicated box for that where every echo in front of everyone is well known, nearly down to the millisecond).

Didn't want to leave it behind in the store but they wanted something called $$$ so guess I'll force myself to go back. Plus there will now be more room on the board and, big benefit, a much shorter signal path between guitar and tank/amp.

Also, for search engine... For those on a really severe budget I've had a Behringer EM600 for awhile and it served very faithfully and has some nice features(it's going away along with the Voodoo Labs Trem and the Carbon Copy). Never once had a glitch with the EM600; it would seem that the company putting a QA/inspection presence physically in the town where it's made had an impact. One tip: Download the manual for the Line6 Echopark (that it's cloned after) - the EM600 manual is written in Chinglish and pretty tough - common syntax/grammar issues.
