    Does anyone have experience with this company? www.aramateffects.com I'm especially interested in the Mojo Fuzz. I'm just looking for any type of feedback on the company or pedal, thanks.

    I have his Soul Patch fuzz. Great little tonebender clone that I use a lot. I emailed the guy (whose name I now forget, duh!) a couple of times before I got it and he was very personable and eager to please.

    sounded pretty good, very similar to '69, Sunface, etc. Paint job was pretty funky but overall a cool pedal, should have kept it. -GFI

    Same here. I used to have the Soul Patch fuzz. Great sounding. Great build quality. Customer service was excellent, when I e-mailed him.

    I had the mojo fuzz. Nice pedal, nicely made. I kind of regret not keeping mine as well. I'm just not sure that I'm a fuzz guy...

    My experience was nothing but positive. Keith is his name, and I echo radicool's sentiments. Cool guy and good customer service.

    I had a soulpatch cool bender style fuzz. Sounded fine, used it till I got a Pedalworx bender that sounded cooler to me. Sold the Soulpatch to a friend who really enjoyed it. Good build quality IMHO. I've heard his green machine, they were also quite good.

    I had an Aramat Green Machine for a short while.

    I've got to admit I didn't like it at all but I suspect that it was really just that I've moved away from TS style pedals. The Green Machine still has a big mid-hump and a lot of compression.

    Keith was very good to deal with to the point that I'll probably try something else of his at some stage. Everyone I know who's used him for mods has been very happy too.

    I have an early Mojo Fuzz in the tall enclosure with hand painted labels and swirls. Great price and it sounds wonderful. The Mojo pot (bias) can get you into a wooly fuzz if you dime it. It's great at all volume levels too (better when cranked though). The PCB is tiny and looks like it was drawn with a sharpie. Never had a problem with it and I'm glad to own it. By the way, Keith is a really nice guy to boot.

    I got a Soul patch used from a music store a while back...It's the closest thing to my original Colorsound Supa Tonebender sonicly and it is a much smaller footprint as well as true bypass. I use it at gigs for and extra overdrive/fuzz sound....And it makes great feedback with a Strat! Keith at Aramat is very helpful as well.

    I still have a Green Machine that I got of Ebay in his pre-website days. It has its own unique voice in the ts family of pedals. There's plenty of top-end clarity to go with the chewy mids and has more boost than a stock screamer. It's not my go to o.d. these days, but it sounded great through darker amps, especially my old 1x15 combos; Old Flame & Delta Blues.
