dude, how is the eh stereo pulsar chout? im thinking between the eh holy grail,eh stereo pulsar or the carl martin surf trem...

do you have some clips of the stereo pulsar? i've never seen one in shops around here. i've seen the stereo pulsar trem demo, the normal one and it sounds badass im guessing this is just the same only with a stereo input in a smaller box?

please anyone share your imput and impressions of these pedals

it's a good pedal. Not the best tremolo out there, but for $80 it's a pretty good one. It's EH so you cant really go wrong. Strong, sturdy construction, great effect, small casing for a possibly crowded pedal board. Go for it. It's the one I've been saving up for.

I don't use/like reverb enough to justify buying a reverb pedal, but the HG has a good reputation. Don't know about the surf trem.

Stop, Chout, STOP!

You have enough pedals. Save your money and buy a boat!

Found a deal for it on craigslist this afternoon.

The real reason I bought it is because it will be part of our album cover, but it sounds damn good...better than I thought. Perhaps slightly less smooth than my Deluxe Big Muff, but in the ballpark.

Granted, it has no tone control, so not as flexible. It seems to react similar to some guitars though, when you turn the volume down on it, it seems to get a little bassier warmer sound.

Here's a recent one, but I have parted with a few of them since. The right board is my main one for gigs.
