    Don't worry! You are not alone :) $370 price tag looks reasonable for super Fetto.

    The web site has a currency converter that converts 3295 SEK to $398!! Which sounds about right considering the other pedals run @ $300ish.

    Selling gear now to fund this. I sold the Nord because of the footswitches being too close to each other. This is a dream Fetto configuration for me(and most probably old Himmelstrutz users too).:D

    i've always wondered, but never felt like starting a thread about it:

    how does the fetto compare to the okko diablo?

    the diablo gain+ is a stomp that's appealed to me for some time now, but i'd be lying if i said the (various versions of the) fetto didn't slightly intrigue me/slow the buying process.

    Both are awesome, and two of the best mid gain pedals out there, IMO. The Diablo is warmer/browner with a more vintage voicing, IME, while the Fetto has a more transparent high end and is super fat, and, in most set ups I tried it with at least, was more modern sounding. I preferred the Diablo with humbuckers and the Fetto with singles, though you can't go wrong with either. I'd buy them both again if I didn't have my Rhodes.

    The Diablo is a great pedal, but a little soggy in the low end and not as punchy as the new Fetto Maximus. I have a Fetto Maximus and it is the best Fetto of all - and I love Fettos!

    The thing I particularly like is that I can get all the dirt I want with minimal compression. So it can sound extremely violent - if that's what you want. Or you can dial the power down a bit and get loads of compression. It also does very low level dirt better than ANYTHING!

    So the Fetto can do the Diablo, but the Diablo can't do the Fetto. And the 3-band EQ lets me match the new Fetto to any amp. For example my tweed Super has a fairly flat EQ, so I can boost the mids on the Fetto a bit to make it cut. But the Brown Deluxe is a midrange monster, so I cut the mids on the Fetto a little and it sounds like the Super. Brilliant!

    Best OD I have used, and has a killer boost too. I love this thing!

    Congrats Jimmy! I am going to buy from the first batch that will come to Pedalshark(ETA March). I have always missed the Fetto Nord and I'm glad to see that now it finally is the right size for a two-footswitch pedal.

    You will love it Edgie. It really is the culmination of everything good about the Fetto but made better - so easy to use and works with any of my amps. The power knob seems subtle at first but it affects feel and tightness more than just tone. It's like being able to adjust the size of your amp!

    I have gigged it a few times and nobody realises it's a pedal getting my dirt. they all assume I just turned the amp up. But for me it actually sounds better than turning the amp up. Brilliant.
