I've posted that I'm on a self-imposed moratorium from buying pedals. I'm about 9 months into my 3 year hiatus, HOWEVER,......my wife is free to buy me stuff so I didn't break my own rules! This weekend my wonderful wife gave me an Amptweaker Tight Rock. I played the TR and fell in love with it, but bought a Wampler SLOstortion instead. (Sometimes I can't explain why I do things!). I spoke so highly of the Tight Rock that my wife bought it for me as a surprise! The Tight Rock is as good at home as it was in the store. There is not a bad setting or a bad tone in the box. The tone is fantastic. The features that Mr. Brown added in give it a lot of flexibility. The EQ, the noise gate (awesome!) and extra gain boost! I haven't scratched the surface on the loops!! The best thing I can say is that the Tight Rock inspires me to play more. I feel like I'm playing better because of the Tight Rock. Even though I was originally choosing between the TR and the SLOstortion, the TR actually displaced my trusty Rat. (Better bass feel). The SLOstortion remains on my board, but it's the Amptweaker I'll be stomping on! It is a fantastic pedal. Highly recommended.
