I love the V2. I had a 1.4. Loved that a lot. Bought the V2. Definately has tons of volume. Very robust by comparison. My nephew bought one after I told him my impressions and he bought one. Loves it, says it's a game changer. Highly recommended.
Suhr Riot Mini. Love it. The Donner Morpher is a great clone of the Riot, just barely different enough to recommend without guilt. Pretty close
I'll buy a clone and if I like it, I'll buy the original, like the Riot. Usually better note definition and clarity, less mud. Plus you gotta give...
I tried the OCD when it came out, amid all the hype, and was completely underwhelmed. I didn't get what the appeal was, it was pretty ho hum. Like a car with low horsepower. What's the fuss?
The last couple of years, I've noticed a couple of friends were using them and they sounded pretty good...
The Eno Trouble pedal. Sounds great. I bought it cheap and learned it was a clone of an OCD. It's perfect as a low gain boost with my Hot Rod Deluxe. With the Marshall, less so.
Oddly, when the OCD first came out, I didn't like it. Go figure. I'll check out the latest version next time I'm at...
After looking for a good sounding Leslie simm, I got the Roctary. It seemed any of the better ones were pretty expensive and the lower cost ones just didn't do it for me. Some were awful.
The YouTube demos sounded great. I went to GC to try a used one but it didn't work. I ordered on from...
Finally. You'd think I was new... Thanks for the help.
My working man's, meat and potatoes board. Will a buffer help this rig?
wah - polytune - roctary - trouble - riot - micro chorus - carbon copy - flashback - Vibratrem - HOF
Hi, here's a question. I'm thinking of getting a stand alone buffer for my pedal board. I don't even know if I need one but the arguments are pretty compelling.
If I have a buffered pedal, ala Boss, would that cover the buffer issue? Would I need more than that? Am I just looking to spend $...
It does indeed. My bass player heard about a minute of the roctary and decided to buy one and lose his EHX pedal. Apparently it sounds great, which is nice to hear when you buy blind.
I like it a lot, I think it sounds great, still breaking it i but it sounds great. Lots of inspiration waiting!
Other than turning the volume knob down, I didn't use it for medium gain. I wouldn't take a Porsche to do the laundry! For medium-low gain, I use the Eno Trouble mini pedal. $24 delivered. An OCD clone that sounds superb. Oddly, I didn't care for the OCD when I tried it in the store.
After wanting one but not looking to spend that much, I'd been using the Rowin Morpher, a supposed Riot clone. Doesn't sound bad at all. I still had the itch for the Riot.
Bought a used one on EBay, but there was something wrong with it. Returned, but now I really wanted the Riot.
I bought one and returned it same day. Wasn't as focused as I'd like. YMMV, but i realized i should just get what i really wanted. Cheap is expensive and expensive is cheap. Anyway, love the Riot mini.
Well, sad to say I've returned my pedal. I was underwhelmed by the Golden Brownie. Just wasn't as focused as I'd like. The same afternoon I purchased a Riot Mini and that got me exactly what I wanted. YMMV.
