Here's a quick demo of the Lovepedal, Woodrow. The dynamics of this pedal are intense, letting you go from clean to meltdown with just a twist of your guiitar's volume.

Actually more of a caffeine and Ween influence on this one. Weed just makes me shred lullabyes.

sweep... tap... divebomb... sleep.

Cool pic Budlite. a Love-burst trifecta!

Hey, nice chops, but I'm still devoted to my Keeley modded "9"

John -

It seems like the Woodrow is quite a bit thicker gain-wise than a CoT50 (and looser in the bottom end too), am I hearing that correctly? Always hard to tell with my crappy monitor speakers...

Ever play an Analogman Sunface NKT275? I wonder if these compare at all..?

The dynamics sound killer - Sean really has an ear for that stuff!

I'd say you're hearing things pretty clearly. :)

I wouldn't compare the Woodrow to a Fuzzface style circuuit. They seem very different in feel and in the type of grit and gain.

Sean is a madman!:AOK

Has anyone put it up against the Gainster?

Good job on the vid, as usual!

What I heard on Sean's clips was this "swell" in the notes that I often associate with the tube amps. Hearing that freaked me out and I had to order one. That is the first and only new pedal I've ordered ever!

You won't be dissapointed. goes anywhere from clean to breakup to full cranked tweed. and it totally is different with 90's, hb, and singles. a steal at his price. I have stopped using my other pedals because of the range and complexity of this one.

It is closer to the Mule in feel, but the Woodrow is a bit more dramatic in the amount of gain it has and the way it cleans up from your guitar's volume knob.

Marcello - The way the Woodrow cleans up and reacts to your playing dynamics makes it one of the more amp-like pedals I've tried.

Got mine today and just checked it out at VERY low volumes (the wife and kids are sleeping). Definitely worth checking out at that price! I ran it through '68 Princeton Reverb, '66 Deluxe Reverb, '68 Pro Reverb, and 2x12 Tophat Club Deluxe using a 335 and a les paul. Through the Fenders, it sounded pretty decent with the Pro Reverb sounding the best among them with the bright switch off. With the Club Deluxe, it sounded fantastic even at low volumes with the CD's gain knob half way up at the point of break up. You can hear and feel that "swell" that I've mentioned before. Really nice raw-type of OD with quite a bit of "hair" around the notes. Not a smooth, refined OD sound. I do hear little bit of fuzz-like sound in there along with the feel of fuzzbox, that sagging feel if you know what I mean. And like fatback says, it goes from all out OD to clean with flick of the guitar volume going from 10 to 8.
I'm going to try it at the band practice on Saturday at much louder volume. I'm sure it'll sound even better!
Well done, Sean!! :dude

Can you tell me what the pot is doing. Output volume and gain at the same time? and since there is no tone tone knob, did you have to tune your amp differently (less treble for example) and last, do you know if Sean is asking more to make it in the great sunburst color pictured in this thread.

As you turn up the knob, it seems to add volume and gain. I've only tested it around 10 o'clock to 1 o'clock range so far though. I did have to decrease the treble on the Fenders a little bit more than usual with other pedals, but not with the Club Deluxe. I never asked Sean about different colors for the pedal because I like the black finish for it...

Got mine today and so far have used it with the TCM Taurus and Gatton Tele into the CT22. Definitely a different flavor than the other distortion/overdrives I use most often. As others have stated it really cleans up well with the guitar volume. Not completely clean, but much less dirty, and every small twist of the guitar volume really makes a difference. Very nice. Can't wait to get this one to a gig.

big mike
02-08-2007, 10:54 PM
Got mine today as well. I'm at a loss for how to describe it, but its very cool. I dig it. Different sounding than my other pedals. very responsive to volume knob twiddling as everyone says.

Pretty dang cool. I'm not sure it sounds tweed, but then again, I'm feeding a very british voiced amp.

Sounds great...as usual. :) Do you have that valve boy pedal on?

BTW, I think your pedal collection pales in comparison to your toy collection. ;)

Greg

fatback
02-09-2007, 12:11 PM
There was no Valveboy in the Woodrow demo. I've tried it, but prefer the Woodrow on it's own.

Toys are good. :) (Both the musical and non-musical types.)


I'll see if I can get a tele-Woodrow vid together later for folks.

cheers.

fatback
02-10-2007, 01:22 PM
I'd say that the Honey-Bee is lower voiced in the mids and has a deeper "chew" to it. They are pretty different feeling pedals to play through.

I had a few requests that I tried to fill with one vid. So here is a bit of Tele into the Princeton with either a "little China" Cot50, the Woodrow, or both together for some "certified" grind.

What did you hear? THat's what's most important. Call it what you want, but judge it by it's tone.

Do you guys feel the Woodrow will give better/more authentic results when matched with a Fender-y type amp vs. a Vox or Marshall?

I just picked up a Woodrow from a fellow TGP'er. The second video convinced me. I spent the afternoon playing my tele through my 5e3 on about 9 to get ready for its arrival this week.:D
But, now I'm getting CoT GAS too! I had a lil China that I sold after a while, but I'm thinkng about getting a regular red to try out too.
Man, I thought I kicked my Lovepedal habit.:crazy

Anyone else hearing a hint of "stuck wah" in the Woodrow, or is it just me?

BTW - just hooked up my Gatton Tele to the COT and Woodrow into the Pure 64 and got lost for an hour and a half. Man, that was fun!

The clips on the Lovepedal website sound way too much buzzy and fuzzy to my ears. Fatback, how do you get rid of this? your video sound great, no buzz and fuzz.

fatback
02-12-2007, 11:00 AM
stratplayer - I used an Akai Headrush2 for the loops in those vids.

Leo - I'm not sure. It's probably a lot of things; different rigs, cameras, guitars etc. Also I was playing a lot with the volume and tone knobs on my Jazzmaster in the vid. With the guitar opened up the Woodrow can get almost fuzz-like.

Catherine - I haven't tried the Woodrow yet through anything other than my Princeton reverb. I'm curious also to hear other's results with the Woodrow through their amps.

big mike
02-12-2007, 11:39 AM
Hmm...didn't find it too buzzy through mine. It does really like single coils, and doesn't seem to care for humbuckers too much.

With my esquire, it's pretty sick. (In a good way)

George Johnson
02-12-2007, 08:31 PM
Got mine.

Saggy, squishy, slippery singlecoil goodness.

One of the most fun pedals I've played in a long time 'cause
it can get that "something's about to blow" thing that I crave so.

Sean's got a great ear. :AOK

I'm not Big Mike, but he brought it over Sunday and we ran it through my Cam18. I agree, it sounded pretty happening with a strat but pretty ordinary with 'buckers. Just not much extra happening. Pretty dead simple pedal, but why no tap for a pedalboard?

big mike

Different rigs and ears too though. It's a damn cool pedal. I love it with my esquire!

I think the "fixed wah" thing someone was hearing is the drop in treble when the pedal is engaged. It still emphasizes the mids, but without the high-end frequencies, it does sort of sound like a wah held at a lower-middle position. That's (probably, IMO) why it sounds great with single coils, but only average with humbuckers.

Yes, and thank you. That's what I'm hearing - just a touch, but it's in there. More noticable with certain amps and guitars than others.

BTW - Tried it with the Grosh Bent Top into the CT22 last night. Sounded GREAT with the humbucker in the Grosh. Sounded decent with the 335 the night before. I'll probably hook up the strat tonight and see how it does.
