Opinions on MXR BlueBox pedal?
Has anyone tried the MXR BlueBox pedal, what did you think about it?

I've never tried one but I've heard they're supposed to be very unpredictable.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

I've got one (origional Script) and I'm not impressed. The tracking is horrible. I think you can get a very similar sound with WAY better tracking by using your favorite distortion and one of the clean octave boxes like the Boss OC-2. My $0.02 FWIW.

I've got 2 blue boxes,1 script and 1 block,yeah the octave part is ordinary to say the least,and its a mono thing too so as soon as you hit 2 notes it goes crazy,I've got a sheet of paper with my block logo one and it tells the user how to use it and how not to use it,I suppose cos they knew how weird it is.

Would you mind scanning or typing that in for us? I'd love to se what the designers thought was "appropriate use" for the Blue Box
