On http://www.brianmay.com they are showing three pictures of the new pedal, still with no information. What sucks is that the pedal which would reveal the knob markings is broken. What gives? There should be some information about this freaking thing.

Thanks much Bohardy.

Thanks VERY much Adam.

My assesment of the pedal now is both bummed about my fears that it would be as much to recreate the guitar for those who don't have it, rather than a tool designed assuming you are one of those who do. That being said, as long as a strong attempt or try for recreating the Brighton Rock delays would be worthy enough to make it worth the dough. The Keep Yourself Alive sound, which I can only assume includes a recreation of the unique phase modeling Brian did, is a bonus. The Deacy-esque 'A Winter's Tale' mode promises a chance for something else WAY bonus.

My optimism is based on the fact that Digitech seems to be leading the way with this, and they seem confident, only trailing in a definite way Boss in terms of reputation. My confidence in Brian May led guitar products was skeptical with the lower quality of the Burns guitar(though I really don't bitch so much as meet others more knowledgeable and experienced with guitars who trash the Burns visciously), but I am confident and sure as hell that the BM special Vox amp, cheap as it cost, fails miserably to recreate the Deacy Amp as it should be. From my inquiry, Germanium transistor technology will be present, or the recreation is dead before it starts. "Silicon is shit!" a bad ass guitarist who made is own Deacy(which sounds authentic) once told me.

All I really know is that, if there is a way to use my Burns, AC30 Vox and Fryer Treble Booster with the Digitech or anything else to recreate a reasonably sounding Brighton delay harmony, without insane volume, I would get off my lazy ass and practice 'til the cows come home.
