Menatone pedals are great pedals, and even thou I don't have one on my board
for the 1st time in many years... And guess what I will eventually buy another Menatone!
I always say the best advertisement for Menatone is from the players themselves.
Brian is a good dude and make some of the best pedals.

for those of you experienced with the PoPo:
how much low-end do you feel is cut from the original guitar signal, when the pedal is engaged?
just wondering!

The PoPo has so much bottom end I think it adds bass.
right, thanks!

maybe my question should have been:
does the bottom of the guitar's low-end automatically shift upwards, even if there's more of it?
weird, i know..... but, i'm..... well, obsessive about this.

i think i simply need to try one for myself.

I will play with this tonight and see if I hear what you're describing. From what I remember off hand I would say no.

Popo has balls! I really like how you can snug up the bottom. The trimmers offer additional control to fine tune the response and character, great pedal!

The Popo's low-end is fat, thick and badass. It has such an great organic feel (like all things Menatone). Tweaked the hi cut a bit to make it brighter and it just always sounds amazing.

I know this is an old thread. I just picked up a NOS Popo Fuzz. It's the older 3-knob. Sounds great to me. The Sag is very scratchy at every turn of the knob. The dealer said to try adjust the trim pot bias. I had to leave town and didn't yet have a chance to play around with that. Anyone have the scratchy pot experience on the Sag?
