As cool as their Liverpool & British character pedals are I'm sort of interested in this. Has anyone heard or seen one in person? I think they're out.
As I have ZERO fuzz pedals, this things look great for my entry into the fuzz world.... and I really like the TOTALLY separate boost control.
So the demos show it getting a pretty good Fuzz Face tone. Can it do Rangemaster or Tonebender tones? Sounds like it might be similar to the Pedalworx (aka Tonefactor) Hellbilly that I still use if it can, but with a tone knob and boost. (Talk about a forgotten great pedal there...)
Sounds fantastic with the fuzz all the way down.
This is what I'm pretty interested in.... I've got several overdrive pedals, but I'm not a fan of NOISY fuzz type stuff. Especially since I'm playing at home a lot right now & not in a band situation with stage volumes to cover up the lil noisy attributes. From the tiny clips I can find of this pedal in low-fuzz(gain) territory, it still seems to be pretty smooth & quiet. Would you agree?
Around the 0:35 point, you can hear some of the low gain territory -- tho only for a few seconds at most.
Excellent Buffer! I read their philosophy on the whole True Bypass thing and it definitely made some sense. Think it just depends on how many pedals your running.I had a Tech 21 Reverb/Boost, and found out by accident how great the buffer was when I hooked it up as the first pedal in my chain once. If the Boost/Fuzz has that same buffer circuitry, that would be another bonus to this pedal.
Yeah, regarding their statement on buffers, I think the truth is in the middle. If you have 15 pedals, all true bypass, that's bad unless you had one near the front on all the time. But if you have 15 buffered bypass pedals, that is bad too, even if they are all good bypass.
Couldn't have said it any better!! Well put.
I'm actually kind of curious about their " Character" pedals now after how good this is. I know its a whole different thing but it would be nice to try to cop a bit of vox tone out of my Princeton if possible. Even a hint for some tunes playing live. I have that VHT 12/20 RT that I'll probably put in EL84's but would like to just take one amp.
