    Nope...and I think it was probably you that I saw mention it recently and I immediately went looking for demos and couldn't find a thing. I wrote it down on my pedal master list of things to check out as I'm looking for an amp exploding style pedal!

    Being a huge fan of Jeorge Tripps there are a number of pedals that could be regardes as under the radar. Or perhaps beyond visual range even. Now: where to begin...

    Blackstar HT Metal pedal for anyone seeking an excellent pro-quality high gain pedal. After reading some 'mic drop' European reviews I took a chance. Not disappointed~

    Lovepedal Amp 50... Only one knob, but so much goodness in such a simple pedal.

    Lovepedal MK12 germanium... Never seem to hear it come up much in the fuzz discussion but man, what a fun pedal.

    Eqd crimson drive.

    One of the slickest all around dirt pedals ever. Stacks with the instackable. From mild overdrive to mild fuzz. I feel like a rockstar at his last show every time I play it. It's a shame it's been discontinued.

    I've championed it for awhile but the D*A*M Sonic Titan does not get anywhere near the attention it deserves imo

    Am I even allowed to say PTD Rotobone/RotoPlex???

    I mean, for here on TGP, it's NOT under the radar....but then you venture out into the "real world" and it's nowhere to be seen!! lol

    It wasn't until a couple of years ago that the full size Spark Booster really got the attention it deserves....I have not looked for an "end of chain" booster pedal since I plopped down my $80 for a nice used specimen at GC 3 years ago...


    Radial Texas Bone Overdrive (and the other 2 switch offerings) don't get the attention they deserve for their VERY FUN AND SATURATED HIGH GAIN FUNNESS!! :)


    The Giggidy was another great tone shaping pedal that had a few sparks of interest here and there, but is still a great pedal.

    HungryRobot ....any of them I would say are under the radar

    But I would especially reccomend the LG overdrive.

    The fuzz is being released, tomorrow, according to the website.

    The wayhuge saffron squeeze reissue, left something to be desired for me. It was OK, not something I kept on my board.

    Source Audio Kingmaker / LA Lady - boys and girls, digital dirt is all growed up now and it is rockin'!
    Lovepedal Mkiii - Tonebender Mk I with Si trannies. From sweet OD to gnarly fuzz. It's da bomb!
    Skreddy P-19 - David Gilmore's The Wall fuzz tones. 'Nuff said.
    Donner Wave - sub-mini analog delay with selectable modulation. It sounds amazing and costs only $35. Winner!

    DOD EchoFX - Great sounding MN3005 based analog delay that's still affordable used.

    DOD VibroThang - An interesting combo of a tremolo and phaser

    Biyang Fuzz Star - A very good and inexpensive Muff style fuzz.

    Ammoon Opti Comp - A nice, very tiny, compressor. Surprisingly good for about $22.

    Snouse Blackbox Overdrive 2 if I have to name just one. But actually any pedal from Chellee Guitars, Lumpy's Tone Shop, Snouse Electronics, Foxrox. All their stuff is quite underrated.

    Piod FX from Ukraine. Aleksey is a brilliant designer and a super guy to deal with. He makes an absolutely killer high gain pedal called What You Want 2. Burgs did a demo on YouTube a few years back. He also builds one of my favorite fuzzes I've ever used, called the ToneKeeper. There's a good video demo of it from Morton Studio in Kyiv. Check it out:

    What You Want 2:

    Under the radar?

    My Valvecaster is a "stealth" pedal. It cant even be detected by radar! :cool:

    Snouse is getting more recognition but still flying under the radar with this pedal. A total masterpiece, imo.

    I would.....but it would go ignored by everyone here in favor of some flavor of the week.

    Digitech Turbo Flange is pretty awesome and can be had for really cheap. A friend gave me one and I was shocked at how many cool and unique sounds were there. Another in the same vein of cheap, under the radar, and cool digital modulation is the Ibanez PM-7.
