Brian makes amazing stuff.
I'm at 5 weeks wait today, so getting antsy. Anyway, was on Instagram today and it looks like the $149.00 introductory price on The King ends on 8/16/15. Sounds like goes up on Monday.I have a friend that highly recommended The King. "It surpasses all my previous gain pedals.", were his exact words! So I ordered one on July 4. Emailed Brian last week and he said he might get to it this week. Nothing yet, but keeping my fingers crossed!
Hey hip fan- are you running your amp completely clean with the King? Just curious, as I've been setting mine just on the edge of break-up. Still waiting on mine to show up.I'm the proud new owner of The King #65. Wow, what a pedal! This sounds like good, realistic amp gain in front of my Traynor IronHorse. It has a good deal of bark and immediacy. It "feels" like cranked amp gain under the fingers too.
I tried tweaking the internal controls a bit, but I ended up back in the stock position - trim pot set to full mids ('70s) and switch set to "mod". So far, I have the external controls set as follows:
Can't wait to try this thing with my band tomorrow night. Will report back afterwards.
Hi hipfan. Im gassing for this pedal. Looking for a really good miab pedal. But im curious how it compares to other pedals like DLS MKIII, xotic sl drive and lovepedal purple plexi. What other pedala can you compare it to? ThanksI'm running the amp mostly clean, but pushed a bit. The preamp control on the Traynor goes from basically no gain to mild gain only, so I turn it up just to the point of where it's breaking up and then let pedals do the rest.
I just received my The King...freakin awesome...I've had a few different versions of the KOTB/WMB and this is all the good things of those pedals rolled into one small enclosure...tons of interaction between all the controls...very wide gain/tonal range...stacks well with other pedals...I just got a new small box Fish Factory as well...those 2 together are an insane combo...I feel like I could do any gig into any amp with those...
There's also an internal Vintage/Modern switch...Vintage is a little looser/bassier(JTM45/Bassman style)...Modern is a little tighter and focused(Plexi/JCM style)...both seem to have about the same amount of gain...clean up to semi high gain...
Brian was great to deal with and since I ordered The King right before my Fish was supposed to ship he hooked me up with The King at the same time(no wait)...his communication/follow through was lightning fast...super stoked on the whole experience...
Hey VANGIT, i posted a question about this (voyager vs. red snapper) and i see you have one on your board. i'm considering one or the other for tone enhancment and light OD. how you use your Red Snapper?I'll be sure to let you know. I have some doozies on order. Here are the MK3 I have
Dunno. I haven't really used any other pedals billed as MIAB before (unless my memory is failing me). I'm finding the character of the dirt to be similar to my Solidgoldfx Zeta so far, but with more crang and clearer tone. Really liked it with the band last night!Hi hipfan. Im gassing for this pedal. Looking for a really good miab pedal. But im curious how it compares to other pedals like DLS MKIII, xotic sl drive and lovepedal purple plexi. What other pedala can you compare it to? Thanks
