    Just received this fabulous pedal in the mail and spent a few minutes with it. Oh my god, my quest for a decent envelope filter if finaly over . Cool looking pedal also...But the most important thing, a very well balanced range which is probably the most difficult thing to get on a filter. Just two knobs, easy to dial in and...remember for an analog guitar player !! For the price (now that the canadaian dollar is catching up) one of my best buys in a long time. Comments from other user ??

    Actually, I'm Brad. You're close though, Brian is the designer. I just sell 'em. :)

    Mine is in the mail too...I should mention that it is really cool that Tonefactor included free shipping to Canada.

    Yeah that rocks!!! Between ToneFactor and Scott (www.axeandyoushallreceive.com) I don't think I'll ever need to go to a music store to buy another pedal.

    old DOD FX25B? that's their most recent (and still available) model ;)

    I have a DOD 440 Envelope Filter and a DOD FX25 (no blend with the original signal as on the FX25B). On bass only small parts of the ranges of both knobs on the 440 are useful (except if you want extreme bleeps and sweeps ;)), it sweeps too high with other settings. On guitar that's probably not a problem.

    The ToneFactor is based on the 440, but I don't know about the differences... Maybe Brad can give some more info ;)

    well, my fx25B is the more rare one, the "extreme" green one :p

    However, how do they compare in sound, sweep, etc. ??

    To me, and I really think envelope filters are a really personal thing, the Tonefactor beats the DOD*. I still really like the DOD but it's fallen to number 3 after the TF and an old MXR.


    To me the TF is really easy to dial in and very, very sweet sounding.

    *Mines the two knob FX25 tho'.

    I really like the Analog Filter. I usually use it not to produce a wah-effect, but just as a sort of "fattener". I find that if I place it after a phase shifter (I use a Homebrew Psilocybe) the auto-wah effect is negated, but the Analog Filter still does some subtle and interesting things to the sound.

    the clips on the website sound good, but I think I can't hear it get quite as warbly as the DOD, like it's about to lose itself or blow your speaker with crazy low frequencies. It does seem like a good radiohead or funk type env. filter though. Probably easier to dial in to than an FX25B as well.

    This one?

    I think the circuit of the GFX25 is the same as in the FX25B, it came between the FX25 and FX25B.
