    The Tone Quest seems to have "reviewed" the pedal and Indoor Storm had a unit...
    I just hoped somebody heard it...

    What is this and who is it made by? It's the first I've heard of it at all.

    No joke,although the name is kinda funny...

    It's an overdrive pedal...seems interesting,I guess.

    Indoor Storm had one,it's sold now.I figured,since it's a boutique pedal,someone "in the Know"must have got it and what better place do you know for those in the Know?

    The descriptions sound good, but for $275, I don't feel like just buying and trying.

    You're right!
    I'm tired of feeling like becoming the"guinea pig" for so many(costly) things but this one sounds interesting...
    Thanks for the photo!

    Hey, while we're at it how about a smaller box? I detest pedals with huge hammond boxes and a tiny circuit inside. Listen builders, I'll spend the extra $10 for the smaller box!

    Call me a junkie but everything else being equal, I'd rather have room for 10 smaller pedals than 5-7 larger ones if they do the same thing. I might even be able to carry a smaller pedal board, fancy that!

    Coco Montoya had one last month. He was so effusive about the Uncle Spot amp used in his studio that I didn't get a chance to ask him what he thought of the hoochee-mama.

    I briefly played through the Hoochee-Mama one day at Indoor Storm. It so happened that Jack Briggs was in the shop with a prototype of his new guitar -- I believe he called it a Classic. So the pedal seemed interesting, but honestly my focus was on the ultra-cool Briggs. I want to A/B the Hoochee-Mama with the Xotic & Barber pedals they stock... but I guess I've got to wait for them to get another one in.

    Just got a hoochee mama. To me it sounds like a boutique TS. It's big and open sounding and really makes my amp sing.

    This pedal and the GGG standard overdrive are the only two pedals that have come close to my Landgraff DO.

    I need to do some more A/Bing with the Landgraff.

    I just heard the standard OD on GGG's website. THe clips are nice, not a smooth sound, kinda like a ds-1 /ts-9 sound with more bass. Very Satriani tone-like clips. I wonder how ppl have tried and kept this pedal? Has it worked with many amps or humbucker and singles like the fish factory does.

    Congrats!
    A comparison to the Landy,a benchmark pedal, would be most welcome.
    Does it favor single coils?

    Had the GGG Standard Overdrive along side the Landgraff. Wanted to like it (to save funds). Sold it. There's something to the Landgraff tone that is richer and nicer.

    Currently have the Landgraff side by side with a Hoochee Mama and a Time Machine boost.

    For crunch the Hoochee Mama is slightly bigger and more open than the Landgraff. The Landgraff cleans up more quickly though and stays punchy with the guitar volume control turned down. The Time Machine has more options but isn't as big sounding as either of the other pedals.

    I only use humbuckers.

    Cool!
    Where was the toggle positioned on the D.O for the comparison to the Hoochee?

    I like big open crunch that cleans up when you play soft.

    To get this I run the Landgraff on the middle switch setting, gain at 11, volume at noon, tone to taste.
