From my Journal, dated 4th October 2017: “And I shouldn’t hang out on The Gear Page or I’ll buy a BD-2, a Rat, a Klon, a Timmy and a Data Corrupter. Then a Timeline …”
Since that date: BD-2w, 2 Rats, 2 Klon(e), Timmy, Volante, Avalanche Run, Transmisser, Canyon, 2 x Nebula, Explorer, Titan II, Atlas III, Mercury IV, Skyboost, TightFuzzPro, Scarab Deluxe, Orpheum, Spooky Tooth, Fuzz Face, Fuzz Factory, Tres Diablos Ruidosos, Grand Orbiter, The Depths, Tone Job, Westwood, Pitch Bay, Dimension DC-2w, Dazatronics Optical Tremolo, History Lesson, ColorFace, Polara, Octavix, SS/BS Mini and Dracarys.
I can’t say TGP inspired all of the above, but certainly some. No regrets, no flipping.
TGP has introduced a lot of smaller builders to me. Trombetta, Joe Gore, Telenordia, Spaceman. I sort through as much info as possible to try and draw a conclusion as to whether a pedal is worth a shot. I drew that conclusion with Spaceman Sputnik, Aphelion, Saturn V and while they sound good they just weren’t for me. The others listed all stuck and have gotten me to sounds I have had in my head for decades. Thanks TGP folks.
