    What can you tell me, I recently stumbled across these things and can't find much abut them. I know the builder is on here somewhere, but the clips on the site alone are not enough to go off of.

    What are each of them based on, or what are they similar to?

    I'm not sure I can exactly answer your question but most of them/if not all are silicon transistor based. Many of them feel like a fuzz face but they are a lot more versatile. One of my faves, the Magic Number, can get pretty Muff like. I had one of the tour boxes for a week and they were all awesome pedals, highly recommended

    How are the clips on the site not enough? They are fantastic clips that really show what each pedal sounds like. AFAIK, most of the BA pedals are unique designs and not clones of other circuits.

    There's two Tour Box threads here on TGP where you'll find reviews from several guys you know from here and the D*A*M forum.

    Cali68 just did a video demo for the Future Man stomp you can see it here:

    Take a look at the links and if you have any other questions you can PM me.

    Oh, and just to clarify, one of the pedals...the Solar Myth is somewhat fuzz face based but none of the others are. :)

    Do any of the pedals get close to the Maestro FZ1a?

    I just noticed the post...
    I'd say that the Spooky Tooth can cop some of those
    Maestro sounds. It's got a few other sounds in there as well
    It has a fatter sound in general though, not quite as buzzy.
