"MAKING PRODUCTS THAT LOOK THE SAME BUT ARE ACTUALLY DIFFERENT"​


index.php


Heh! Not bad sounding at all though, once I got it working. But in a true WTF moment, they decided to put the 5 segment LED gain metering ladder inside the box so you can't actually see it. :poop:🤡🦧

Wait. It does have an indicator when it crosses threshold?
The unit they copied only used the LED indicator as a flashy light!
If you're going to make it better, may as well not let anyone know
Yep, that's how I managed to calibrate it with the internal trimpots. Someone on TB was going to try breaking the LEDs out to the top panel, which looks a bit fiddly but may be feasible. I'll ping him and see if he ever followed through.

Are people still chasing Klon tones? I'm going back to my days at the guitar shop here - 2012 and 2013 - Klons were THE pedal to have. The shop owner actually got ahold of a KTR that he kept on his workbench, and got Cusack Effects to build him a private-label Klone...the EHX Soul Food debuted while I was working there, and I actually got to sit and listen to some A/B tests between all these Klones on the market and the owner's KTR; his private label added LED clipping which was cool, and the reason that the Soul Food was the first pedal I bought was because that was (to my ears) nearly indistinguishable from the KTR.

If yes, what's new in the world of Klones? If not, what are the new trends in guitar pedals?

My amp has two inputs so I use my joyos clean output, to a guitar distortion, as my joyo adds dirt to a clean signal, into my Peavey TKO. The Zoom is my compressor, noise gate, EQ, peremetric EQ and chorus, which goes before both. This honestly gets me the closest I've ever gotten to Adam Nollys sound, more so then the Zoom or joyo ever could, by themselves. The digitech death metal is the most shrill, trebley, shrieking distortion I've ever heard, blending it into a bassy, blended signal gives me this beauitful sound somehow

THE OH-IO!!!
Only delay I ever tried, was the DOD FX90.

I really liked it, and got some unique tones.
Looking to try some new things as I get back into playing again.

Gonna meet one of my bass heros this coming week. Ian Martin Allison. He’s a big pedal guy, but I can’t afford the stuff he uses.

Trying to find a budget friendly unit or two to try out.

Looks like the DOD fx90 can be had for under a C-note.
