Not to long ago, I came to the stage where I needed to upgrade my pedal arsenal to a more professional sound. I wanted a creamy sounding, gain filled, durable, easy to use pedal and that basically describes everything that the Golden Cello is. From the moment I got this pedal I've loved everything about it! The overdrive tone it gives is just perfect at any gain level and it seems that you can't find a useless sound in this pedal no matter how you dial it in! The delay is sweet and simple, which is everything it's supposed to be for this pedal. Now, note that the delay in this pedal, in all it's simplicity, is no replacement for your multi-featured tap-tempo delay pedal, it's merely a fun extra that can give you a cool atmosphere to your sound when you want it, and for that, it is a wonderful sounding delay!
The best thing about the Golden Cello is that the sound it puts out is EXTREMELY influental on whatever amp you put the pedal through, which is good because it means that while you'll still get the influence of your amp into the mix, you wont be getting a wonderful sound with one amp and then a terrible sound with another (you'll always get a good sound!), infact, I played this pedal through an awful solid-state halfstack at a band practice and everybody there was blown away by how good the pedal sounded and how well it cut through. In the same way, the pedal reacts wonderfully with other OD's and distortions (I use it with a Ibanez Tube King OD and it sustains for years and gives harmonics at a touch!). Overall, I think I would reccomend this pedal to anyone looking for a botique overdrive, regardless of how long they've been playing. If you're looking for that thick, creamy, singing overdrive tone that will set your guitar tone apart from the others, I'd highly reccomend this pedal!

I really wanted to like this pedal but ultimatly was disappointed. Great idea but just doesn't work for me. The distortion sounds good, but not great; a little slow on the the attack and not alot of tonal variations. In other words I couldn't tweak the tone to the spot I really wanted it to be in. But it was mostly the delay that lost me. The dealy just doesn't sound very good and for a live performance it requires to much hands on tweaking. Overall good idea but I need better control for both dealy and overdrive settings that can't be had in this all in one.

      Comments about Mad Professor Golden Cello Combined Delay and Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I needed to find a reason to like a very expensive electric violin with a nasty sound. Not as in desired overdrive but as in immature. I tried this out , thought it was great, used it at a rehearsal one week and the angels sang. Good for sweet AND overdrive. Used about 2.5 hours The next week I thought everything from the ground on my violin to a blown amp had occured. Ah....but the light on the Golden Cello was off-- had to remove entire bottom plate with Phillips head and waste anothr 9 volt battery. Of course it didn't come with an AC supply. Angels singing again, but this is not going to be feasible to replace during a gig. Going to have to add yet another purchase for the adaptor to this money pit of an instrument.
      Thank heavens the "price" was 1/2 of retail. I'd recommend for sound, but this is an expensive little unit...expand the cardboard packing a bit and throw in the AC, wouldja?

          Comments about Mad Professor Golden Cello Combined Delay and Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I purchased the Golden Cello pedal had it for about a week, returned it because could not get the sound out of it that I wanted, or herd from others.

          I play an American Strat, and with the tone cranked up on the pedal it was still very muddy, esp. on the lower strings, and extremely muddy on the middle and neck pickups.

          The only place it sounded semi-good was on the bridge pup, and the B & high E (treble strings). Maybe the one I had was defective, but it absolutely sounded different from what I herd, esp. online.

            I used to play for a living, now am relegated to a bedroom guitarist. With the turn of a few knobs I can bring back yesteryear even through a bottom line Fender amp.

            A very fine, smooth OD. The concept of combining a delay is a good one, but a more variable one would have been even better. Also, remote foot-switching of the delay would have been nice. Maybe I'm asking too much of a portable device?

            It doesn't sound anything like a cello, but the convenience of having a delay box along with a fuzz is great for players who don't want to carry around a bunc of pedals when they play.

            Loved how this baby sounded on its own. When it came to gigging live? Very sorry that it simply did not cut the mustard. Not only was it unable to cut through a loud mix, it didn't hold its own in a softer mix. Was lost the second you clicked it in. Of course, using it in a recording one would be able to isolate the pedals sound enough so that it would most likely work out well. Truly very expensive to purchase just for recording IMHO. Thank goodness the return policy makes it a smooth transition to bring one back.
