    Not that familiar with Paul Gilbert however I did find this vid interesting and informative.

    Paul Gilbert is amazing …… 64th Note King !!! I was particularly fond of the “Mr. Big” era ……

    Paul is amazing. I love to see his interviews not only because he's a wonderful musician, but also because he's always in a good vibe. I wish I have his temper.

    One of the only guys from the "shredder" genre whose music I actually like. I love that he's so good without being a douche bag unlike a lot of other good players.

    Years ago a friend brought over a live album by some band I'd never heard of... Racer X.

    I was amazed, and we listened to it over and over that evening

    Paul is always fun to watch. And a really good guitar player too.

    Interesting that there is no TC Electronic MojoMojo pedal that he kept on banging on about all the time!
    New sponsor I see.

    I really don't need any more overdrive pedals....but I'm really tempted to pick up a MojoMojo.

    I have nowhere near as many pedals as Paul Gilbert, but I do like what he does with them.

    PG is great! Love watching him, and he always seems like he's just genuinely a friendly good guy all around.

    339 I did buy one. Unfortunately it sits on a shelf now.
    For some reason I did not go for it. :shrug:

    I like Paul Gilbert because he's a "collector" of lawsuit era MIJ guitars ,as I suppose I am
    And he never seems to take himself too seriously

    Also Josh is a cool guy , he NEVER slags rival pedal makers in his videos ,in fact ,he always seems to do the opposite

    Gilbert has always been a genuinely nice guy with a meticulous, yet light hearted nature. Me and my singer at the time met him eons ago when he had just released the first Racer X album, definitely not a massively known player at the time anyway, and we both came away thinking "damn can he play, a super gifted musician, but he's such a nerd!" LOL. And I have to say it's been cool as hell to see over all these years him remain the same exact dude I met. Totally NOT a rock star. The notoriety, hit songs, signature gear, fame, respect, etc has not changed him at all.

    Afraid I don't remember! lol Wasn't on my board for more than a coupla hours though. Guess it just didn't give me what I was looking for.?:shrug:
    Based on Forum responses looks like nobody has one on their board either??
    Maybe if you Google and find some reviews on the pedal it will give you a good idea to order or not?

    I did get to see him once, supporting Satriani in Manchester.
    Took a while to get used to seeing him in the headphones he wears live.
    Amazing player.

    @axe4me posted this MojoMojo vid in a thread recently.

    Here's one he did in 2018 when he was still TC's man.
