Title: Less is more!
Post by: Vallhagen on May 14, 2015, 12:29:37 AM
Last weekend i teamed up with Albin at Moody Sounds' (https://moodysounds.se/ (https://moodysounds.se/)) monter at Fuzz Guitar Show (http://fuzz.se/fuzzguitarshow/english/info (http://fuzz.se/fuzzguitarshow/english/info)), a big guitar excibition here in sweden.

Among other stuff, he presented a brand new design, which most likely will be very popular indeed! I don't know about the pricetag yet, but somewhere in the range 3000-3500 USD should be reasonable i think.

Less is More ==> Least is Most!

Have a look and drool!

I find the best tone is in the last 10% of the pot turn

Lovely guts! I love the use of heatshrink on the LED. That totally helps to keep it clean

Next enclosure size up would have added just that extra bit of wriggle room.

Com'on, everyone knows you get the best toan out of green wire, not purple.

Amateurs.

And blinding blue LEDs... I heard that red LEDs suck tone.

nah, true bypass. I've heard buffered is better. Like in the Boss pedals.

Perfect name too: it's what mother eats in the wild after giving birth for nutrition and return their strength after shredding for hours...I mean being in labor for hours.  Nature's energy bar, bringing energy to your toan!

Maybe the box should be purple, the purple pill placebo
*If this box causes you to shred for more than 4 hours contact a doctor immediately*

Uh…you realize a placebo and a placenta are two very different things, right?

I think a placenta could be a placebo but I don't think a placebo could ever be a placenta. Just sayn

I see a mod for this. How about getting rid of the need for input and output jacks AND for 2 cables ?You have 2 holes in the opposite sides of the enclosure. Installation is dead easy. You slide your cable into the hole in the right side (input) and through the box and get it back on the left side (output). The other functionalities of the pedal stay the same. True bypass. I would call it'box of nothing'.

Yes, I'm aware;) I was being goofy.  My wife always says I'm not as funny as I think I am.... I may have proved her point here:)

My wife says the same thing about me. I'm starting to think it's probably the wife's problem. Right guys? Guys?

Ha, I got hauled into the office for telling an auditor a joke, once.

Auditors don't have senses of humour.

We should start an unfunny joke thread
