    Anyone very familiar with the Red Llama overdrive? I ask because, like everyone else this time of year, I'm getting come-ons from every direction and there's some good deals at Chicago Stompworks, this being one of them. Online reviews are a bit scattered but mostly favorable.
    Thanks, Bernie

    I have one of the Chicago Stompworks Red Lamma clones. It is a cool pedal. It can get pretty dirty and fuzzy. I think it is a very good pedal for rock. If you are going to use for blues, you will need to use your guitars volume pedal to control the amount of dirt. Mike Campbell from the Tom Petty Band used the Red Llama (in his Camel Toe pedal). If you like his tones, you will like the voice of the pedal. I use mine when I am playing classic rock, not too often for blues gigs.

    I think I've got a clone on my "to build list" may have to dig that out and move it to the top
