    Pretty much the same price (for Hartman Silicon) I like that the MXR has the buffer switch as I'd be using my wah quite a bit with it, but I like that the Hartman has Bias control.... Break the tie and help me decide!

    I have the MXR and I had the Hartman in Germanium. Both sound great. To be quite honest, IMHO the bias control is not that important, especially with a silicon FF...unless you are really, really into the spitty sounds. I have another silicon FF with a bias control and I prefer it wide open. The Hartman is of really nice construction quality, but I have to tell you that the MXR sounds great, and is cheap. The buffer switch is really nice for more than Wahs, it is also a cool thing to brighten up a pedal stack when it gets a little muddy, or to add sparkle for those "clean fuzz" tones.

    Sorry Man - Hendrix ! my favorite silicon. I preferred it over the Hartman silicon, it was warmer.

    Never tried the MXR... maybe that would work better with wahs (as mentioned above) - probably worth a shot - MXR!...
