    Taken me a few hours to get everything dialed in. I’m going to use the Tumnus as my base layer OD instead of transparent gain - I really like the low to medium gain of this pedal. The dials on it are incredibly responsive - gotta go a bit at time to dial it in.

    The Xotic Wah - wow! I had a Cry Baby 535q and liked it but the XW is on a different level. Just nails the Wah part to Voodoo Child - the top end is rounded / smooth and not shrill It’s pricey but worth the money. Got a B stock for 168$ on reverb Love the smaller size of it - it’s lighter and fits on my pedal board

    I’m pretty happy with my board right now - a killer Wah, a clone ‘69 germanium fuzz, the Tumnus , Friedman BE OD for Marshall, and a Zendrive clone for lead tones (the sustain is amazing without adding distortion - tone stays clear so the highs sing) and a great delay pedal in the Carbon Copy

    Awesome looking board! A lot of people dismiss the Friedman because it's such a high gain pedal, but I love my OD Deluxe. I just got the Tumnus mini a few days ago and between those two pedals I'm in OD heaven!

    Congrats on your recent acquisitions! :)

    Q is a solid Wah pedal. I’d definitely perform with one. But the high end can get ice picky

    But the Xotic Wah just has better pots and caps Much smoother and responsive. It’s a step up in quality for sure (and also price)
