I'm wrapping up NPD weekend and really have to say the Catlinbread Zero Point Flanger is pretty darn fun. It doesn't use the typical automatic flanging waveform like every other flanger I've tried so far. So it dispels with the all the knobs. It has two switches. The top one is a standard I/O switch. With it on and in front of a cranked dirty amp the effect is subtle. It remindes me of the slight warble or chorus_y sound you hear on the repeats of a modern style tape echo pedal. Actually sounds pretty cool, and I'm fairly certain I'm going to over use it lol.
Supposedly this effect is designed to sound like two tape decks running simultaneously. Below the I/O switch is a momentary contact switch. Pushing this switch is like to touching the flange on one of the tape decks and slowing it down. It's sort of like using a wah. The real magic of the pedal is the modulation when you step on the momentary switch and it ramps up, and when you release it and it ramps down.
Super fun to use!

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
