    This stuff is insane!! I think I'm gonna get them to build me a custom Atoner/Phasuer Fleur sometime soon. Then down the line when i can really dive in im totally getting a Triwave/Panneur/Tremulus/Nocto. F'ing amazing.

    Whoa... that last one looks like a Moog synth with a hormone problem.

    Which knob makes breakfast in the morning?

    haha, seriously. that last one i guess is a custom build of every pedal they make in one box w/ a mixer. they also do all sorts of crazy custom stuff with the meters, lowpass filters, anything you want basically. most of it is pretty out there but for the experimentalists i think this is pretty much the holy grail.

    WANT!

    ...when you absolutely positively have to have a pedal that no-one will ever figure out how to use.

    yeah i'd love to be playing into some kind of crazy crescendo and then hit the loco button on the nocto and just throw everything into total chaos for a few seconds... glad to see people are as interested as i am here... i agree, zvex stuff is cool but it doesn't even approach the level of "screw it lets just make the wierdest stuff we can" mentality on display here :eek:

    so for you guys who have known about the company for a while... have they evolved or have they always been making this kind of "wtf" gear?

    I've had a stereo trem for awhile. Great pedal - great folks to work with.
    Here's a pic of mine at the top of the page.

    This isn't really WTF gear. A lot of pedals that look prettier sound just as weird like the fuzz factory or a subdecay noise box. Its the looks of the pedals that makes you think they are that much weirder than anything else.

    Couldn't say how wtf some of the pedals are - but the Stereo Panneur is more wtf than any other trem pedal I've tried. And it ain't just the box!;)

    strata, thats awesome!

    and by "wtf" gear I guess I'm just referring to the insane tweakabilty & modding options of all of it. but pedals like the noise swash and atoner are like noise generator hybrids w/ oscillators and all of that jazz. thats all i was really referring to.

    I believe it was Einstein who first stated that there were only 2 types of guitarists in the universe. 1) The type that like to play, and make music, and
    2) The type that like to fiddle with countless, or was that pointless...?) knobs and things.
    But hey, what did that guy know anyhow.
    I say more power to ya bro, heck, see if you can get them to add a few (more) that do nothing but impress your (whoever it is that your trying to impress) People.
    Rock on Gadget man.
