    I've been playing around with my Mimic and I'm finding I get really great results now with 2 x enhancer blocks instead - it doesn't affect the tone so much as the mimic (which is what I have found). I think I'm preferring the 2 enhancers to the mimic if I'm honest. I don't necessarily care about...
