    Some of those CM pedals look a little tall to me.

    Yeah , a second look and I guess you're right and you'd know. Some how they just look a little stumpy to me but it may just be that there a little bigger in general.
    Whats your general opinion on the CM comp, yah or nay?

    Man what do you think???
    I bloody work for CM
    Hehe
    Well I have used it longer than I have been employed....and size is due to the fact that they are not 9v pedals.
    Boss pedals are taller...and more "stumpy"
    The comp, and the HDB's, plus the phaser is coming down to standrt height, only the pedals with extra print are still going to be in the tall boxes, until we get the time to make it otherwise...but we are alittle short of time and such to just do it right now.
    Well besides the optical we have made, and some 19" comps...I have never cared much for other comps for guitars....always to much effect and too little what it is supposed to do, keep the signal even.

    I'm aware of your employer But I think I remember you not liking a pedal or two (Delayla?) and was just curious. I may just skip the cheaper comps and start with something nicer, just wanted a little verification. I will say, if I get too many CM pedals I'm going to have power cords everywhere

    I do not like any of our black box 9v pedals, neither do I dig the old Delayla much...but that is more a question of hating making it
    Which is a PITA!

    Exactly, if you use the dynamics of the distortion pedal then you want it after the pedal.
