I'm tempted to pick one up as they're not that pricey used (and for the glowing reviews).
However, I'm a bit turned off by the size; I just don't get into the whole small-as-we-can approach.
If a drive has a good range of distortion, I'll typically add an additional footswitch and 2nd gain pot so I can set them at two different gain levels and toggle between them. Easy way to simulate two 'channels'.
Just curious if anyone has done any analysis on the SL yet. Seems like a prime candidate for stripboarding due to the size (minimal components or is it SMD?). I'd be all for moving the DIP options externally, separating them in to external toggle switches.
I've got a used one on the way, should be here this week. I'll give it a spin and if it sounds as good as (almost) everyone says, I'll try and work up a schematic. I think it would be interesting to rebuild in a larger case and work the DIP switch as external toggles.
