i have the tru-tron and it is definitely my favorite
the qtron+ XO is a darn fine choice and is on my regular board

Word from the Grateful Dead universe is that the TruTron3X nails it. Everything else is "close."

Myself, after trying several pedals that I ended up selling, I'm sticking with my Line 6 M13 Tron Up digital model. Here's a sound sample. I've since adjusted the settings to be even more true Mutron-ish (particularly the decay - this is what makes or breaks a MuTron copy IMO) but this gives you an idea of what's possible with it.

Gotta say that didn't really do it for me on the Line 6 at all.

I've settled on a 3 Leaf Proton. Had a Prometheus DLX which was absolutely amazing. I have never heard such a killer analog filter.

I couldn't get there with the Mobius at all. It was frustrating.

When I think of the M-t3 I do think of Jerry Garcia as the shinning example of how to use that pedal and I don't consider myself a dead head.

That being said I appreciate the input and need this pedal for a bass player.
the guy wants to replace his original as it isn't reliable for the road any more.
I just thought to mention that as it may be important?

Any thoughts on the Tru-Tron3?


Thanks again!

having a weird time viewing this thread. when i go to look through the other threads this only shows three posts. when i search back through my own posts, i find all of my own and more - i think this would make nine.

Maxon AF-9
+1

The original AF-9 was licensed from MuTron. It runs on 9V rather then 18V. A friend has an origianl MuTron and I've put them side by side. The only audible difference was that the Maxon cut off the note slightly faster then the MuTron.

I own an original AF-9, never tried current production.
