I just think the whole situation has left a bad taste in many people's mouths, even among this who previously liked their Lovepedals. Anytime there are allegations of ethical misconduct, the angry mobs will assemble on both sides. It's so easy to take another's intellectual property that we'll continue to see this more and more. As a professional photographer, I have been the victim several times.omg, 3 listed with BIN prices of $229.95-265. 7 sold recently for $189-235, going back to March 11. I paid $169. That's a "bunch" being "dumped"? lol
RIGHT. Crystal clear.I just think the whole situation has left a bad taste in many people's mouths, even among this who previously liked their Lovepedals...
Then again, there are plenty of Tim(my) for sale at higher than new prices, too, so it's fitting the Amp 11 gets the flipper treatment. Supply and demand.
A cruise though the TGPorium looks a lot more like Amp 11's getting dumped.RIGHT. Crystal clear.
The Timmy's sold for higher prices is "supply and demand". The Amp 11 sellers for higher prices need to floss. Got it.
I thought we were talking specifically about eBay. I will check what they are going for in the Emporium. Selling for HIGHER than list price doesn't = "dumping" in my book.A cruise though the TGPorium looks a lot more like Amp 11's getting dumped.
Read into it whatever you want see. People pay $$$ for Burny Les Pauls, too. There's the appeal of the spectacle/controversy affecting demand as well. I know you say you're friends with Sean which is cool and all for you guys, but the aggro defender thing doesn't move the conversation along IMO.
Enjoy your Amp 11, man, I mean it. These little boxes are for making cool sounds above all else, right?
When it comes to hearing "drastic" differences, opamp selection would def not be the culprit. Minimal differences at best.That and the different opamp selection Ben.
Different op amps do sound different though. There's more components inside that op amp than on the rest of the pedal in total.When it comes to hearing "drastic" differences, opamp selection would def not be the culprit. Minimal differences at best.
I should also mention that my A11's Boost pot makes a scratchy noise when being turned (when active). Thought I might have a defective pot, so contacted LP about it.^^^ good info... I get mine tomorrow and have band rehearsal on Sunday. Can't wait to give it a go! I only use sc strats, so I'm guessing my levels on the volume and gain will be closer to noon.
Yep normal. I've owned 3 COT/amp variants, and they all do that. Same as a Zvex SHO, Crackle OK!I should also mention that my A11's Boost pot makes a scratchy noise when being turned (when active). Thought I might have a defective pot, so contacted LP about it.
They told me that this is normal. The boost pot is actually a bias adjustment. (The tube blend on my Egnater Rebel is scratchy in the same way, and also "normal".)
Apparently the COT50 and AMP50 do this also. If it is normal, I can live with that. Just wanted to ensure that I didn't have a bad pot in a new piece of gear.
It must suck to spend all those years slaving over a hot breadboard to finally come up with a circuit, identical bar a few component differences, to one that's already been on the market for 13 years.
Just a twist on things... meaning specifically different pot tapers and ICs.
That makes sense. It's the actual overdrive section that is the same circuit architecture.Also, the OD sections seem most similar, the boost sections seem more different from each other. YMMV.
