Sounds cool Marc. As long as we have something for reference.
You know, I changed my mind about making the mids switch subtle. Since nobody has one yet, I'm still free to adjust. After playing with the mids switch some tonight, I decided to not be stingy with the mids when in hump mode. It does not sound bad even if I basically let out all the stops. All I'm doing is adding more low end to the clockwise/treble aka high-pass side of the tone knob with that switch. I could add all the low end in the world, and it wouldn't mess up the sound one bit--it would just make the tone knob work like an old-fashioned treble-cut knob at counter clockwise but retain full frequency at clockwise. I'm not saying I'm going to do that and remove all the high-pass (bass cut) at clockwise, but I'll give it a healthy amount of juiciness and fullness.
Loving playing with this thing. Having some folks play with it soon and maybe some clips will come of it.
Yay! More mids! This is shaping up to be something special...and everything I wanted my pigmine to be.
Marc, how will the P19 sound on rhythm, in regards to note definition playing complex chords?
It's really clear. I don't know any complex chords, though; so I can't help ya there.
In comparison to a Mayo?
None of that mush; it's got clarity and bite without lacking smoothness.
The P19 sounds like it solves all my (very minor) issues with the PM.
Marc, if you are still checking in on this thread, any info on the pedal preferring a clean amp vs. dirty.
Can't wait to hear clips.
It finishes real nice and sounds like it's a pushed amp all by itself going into a clean amp. The frequencies are balanced well, so I can't imagine it would either woof out or ice-pick into a dirty amp--plus the noise level is nice and low. I don't test through dirty amps (I stick with my Hiwatt Custom 100 at lowish volume), so I'll wait for dirty-amp clips along with you. No doubt it'll work great, though. There's plenty of cooler, lower-gain settings available on the sustain knob when you don't need a lot of fuzz.
Thx Marc...I'm running clean Fenders myself so it sounds like a good fit.
Thx for the info.
Got my invoice!! P19 enroute!! Really looking forward to see how this compares to my Wren and Cuff Tall Font Russian.. Definitely different muff variations but interested to use to "lower gain"muffs.
Bout to order a P19 myself. If you want lower gain grit, try a SupaTone with the sustain rolled all the way down.
I'd be interested to know as well. Looking for a replacement for my current "muff" style pedal.
Never yet played a muff I enjoyed...always too fuzzy, if you get me, and inarticulate. Still haven't tried any Skreddy pedals yet...hmm, I'd sure like to. Perhaps a P19 someday?
I think the Supa is one of Marcs underlooked pedals. Ive sold off quite a few of my collection but the Supa stayed with me.
Never been a muff guy either, but Wren & Cuff's TFR is different.. Its not overly fuzz, very articulate and cleans up pretty good. Besides Skreddy's being the shiznit the mid switch on this is really what made me pull the trigger.. that and its described as being lower gain.
I'll let the pedals fight for my affection...
Please share us some insights once you get it.
damn you skreddy. temptation got the better of me. never tried a pig mine but been wanting a muff style pedal for a while. hopefully the p19 will be a a compliment to my lunar mini.
STILL waiting for USPS to actually deliver this thing!!
Still waiting for my invoice .
