Does it sound good into a Z-28? I don't know much about this pedal but it keeps coming up every time for some reason. I'm interested in the Hot Cake because I know it sounds good with Vox voiced amps, I hope it sounds good also with a Z-28.

It gets pretty aggressive with the gain cranked. I'd call it a distortion more than a low-mid gain OD, to be honest. It does both clean boost and low-mid OD very good, that's for sure. With the gain maxed it's basically some sort of a fuzz. I'm not into heavy distortion that much but I like the complexity of the distortion especially at low gain settings, when cranked it sounds similar to a RAT but more defined and fatter. It's a very interesting pedal, not very common around here.
EDIT: f**k it, I just ordered one. Still curious about your experience though!

ive owned 4 hotcakes in the past, always used them with a vox or vox voiced amp. sounded decent with those, but I would always sell and then think I regretted it and would buy another, I finally decided they were too fizzy for me and sold the last one and never got another. they only sound well with a certain type of amp. My guess is it would sound like poo with a Z 28 considering thats somewhat fender voiced, and the hot cake sounded like crap with fender voiced amps to my ears. pick one up and give it a shot, if you dont like it theyre an easy sell

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
