2nd in the MKII line, or maybe a different colorway?
Agreed on Jay and Phelps. They have styles most like mine and I also play a Chimera.
I think that is number 2 maybe the collab with Meris?
That’s the Meris collab thing. 1978? Uhhhh... somebody help me.
EDIT - Oh. The Boss DS-1 came out in 1978. It’s a DS-1 w/midi. Haha
Agreed. This isn't really on my radar, but, pending actual in-the-room tones, it looks amazing and I don't think it's overpriced.
My guess is that my bandmate, who has 2 (two!!!) RevivalDrives on his board, will show up with an Automatone at a gig gushing about it, declare it unusable after the first set, and hand it to me to borrow for a week. Win-win!
I have to agree with those raising concerns about the motorized faders. It's not that I don't think Chase Bliss wouldn't stand by their products or that they hadn't field tested this to some degree. Mechanical parts are simply more subject to wear and tear and eventual failure (and require more maintenance) than solid state electronics. It may be difficult to test the effect of years or even decades of the faders moving and while also accumulating dust and debris from the floor. Maybe I am wrong and they beat the sh#t out of some prototypes and production models, logged hundreds of thousands of changes. I would assume changes during a normal gig would be less than a hundred, only a few times per song at most, but at any rate, the wear and tear will add up.
I appreciate that the faders provide a WYSIWYG aspect to pedal settings that has been absent until now. At the same time I think banks of LEDs for each knob (sort of like the organ drawbars on NORD keyboards) might have been a better, more durable option. Time will tell.
CXM: Chase bliss X Meris
The crowd that buys Chase Bliss pedals doesn't tend to keep those pedals for years or even decades.
This is the kind of innovation that makes me glad to be alive. Even the crusty reactions here are part of the explosion.
I will go to NAMM, play my guitar through this glorious box and, based on past experience, begin the financial planning process.
I'm loving how much fun Joel is having teasing and tantalizing everyone. As for the Automatone, I'm all aboard the hype train. From my past CBA experiences, I'm either going to love it immediately and wonder where it's been all my life or I'm going to struggle with it for a few enjoyable months until I realize it's not for me then sell it to someone more patient than myself. As for pricing, the RD Custom Drive taught me that it's worth paying two or three times the price of another OD pedal for a pedal that I end up liking 4 or 5 times better. I'm hoping it's the same with the Automatone.
My first CBA pedal was tonal recall, that was in 2016, still have it, still love it, my favorite delay actually hard to keep it for a decade when the company is not even 10 years old lol, one thing I'm sure, I'm not gonna sell that pedal ever
That sounds like a very prejudice statement based on your own conjecture. Typical of TGP. But perhaps I'm interpreting it wrong.
I still own every CB pedal (all 9) I've purchased and they all get used. I know many other loyal CB customers who are the same.
Just to be the devil on your shoulder...
The Chase Bliss website does accept Paypal... and Paypal does offer 6 months interest free financing... which is roughly $125 a month... Most of you probably spend that on Starbucks.
Damn that is cool.
Well I bit the bullet and pre-ordered. Number 92 here. I really do think this will cover all my drive/fuzz needs based on what I've seen from the Benson Preamp and condor. This will be my sixth CBA pedal.
Side note - A good thing about pre-ordering directly from CBA if you live in the USA is you can probably avoid paying sales tax (unless you live in Minnesota). This to me made up for waiting for it to show up to dealers on Reverb as they are required to collect sales taxes.
We ordered about 3 hours apart, so that's just over 2 of these selling per hour. Not bad for a $700 pedal.
I normally try to buy CB pedals from my local shop. The tax is only 3.5%. However, the attraction of getting in early on the pre-order AND the idea of paying through paypal interest free financing so that I'm not dropping $750 on a pedal 6 months before it's even available both pushed me to go direct this time.
Holding off to see what that CxM pedal is...
some people think it's the 1978 Lexicon 224 reverb.
min leaving towards that too. The new pic shows that it’s stereo.
but to keep this thread on topic, I’m super excited for this pedal. Only thing that could derail me from getting it in the future is if that new origin revivaldrive is a high gain version of their original one.....
Chase bliss is on a roll! and looks like these pedals will keep the roll hehe I want to listen more of the preamp!
