oh shit just ordered 11 noisemaker pedals.

back and forth emails/phone calls made me pretty sure this is the kind of dude i want to support - he's definitely in it for the love of making pedals, and pretty committed to the idea that his stuff shouldn't cost more than reasonable labor + parts. the pedal community could use more people like this, and i wish more independent stores could make the leap from understanding what it's like to do what we do to supporting the manufacturing equivalent of that.

order for the curious:
3.14
crush fuzz
donner party
noise invaders (this is so so awesome)
chimera
four horsemen
five
soviet
arbiter
a-ok boost
infinity loop

Those Subdecay pedals are really wild. Thing about things like that they look really fun to mess with but trying to get them into tunes and use them live isn't quite as easy to do.

It's definitely not a total unknown company but the pedal I am currently all geeked on is a Keeley Nova Wah I got used a few months back off the Bay. You can make some cool nasty guitar tones with that box.

the lag control is kind of where the magic happens, seems to delay the effected signal while passing the direct signal through untouched. also, they managed to pull off the magic POG thing where chords roll through it with no glitching whatsoever, but its a very different beast than the micropog. one thing to note is that even with the choir control all the way down, there is still some swirliness to the up and down octaves.

i might take another go at the rainbow machine here in a bit, the first time i tried one i was more baffled than anything, and i like weird stuff!

Some months ago, I traded in my MXR Reverb pedal and pretty much regretted it ever since. Reacquired one today and really fucking relived to have done so. Such a well-rounded and perfectly crafted reverb box. Had to trade my Afterneath for it, but enh, who cares. The "Epic" mode on the MXR is basically their version of the Afterneath, anyway. Fewer controls, but that's an even trade, because the MXR has five other excellent modes to play with.

So, I'm back to four reverbs now: MXR, Keeley Abbey Chamber Verb, Earthquaker Levitation, and Earthquaker Ghost Echo.

Also, ordered a Malekko 616 Dark and awaiting its arrival. Super excited to get that one dialed in.

So, come to find out that my Arpanoid was defective and it did the "up and down" thing in both the middle and right position on the toggle switch (the right position is supposed to be for "down" only).

Contacted Earthquaker and they were very quick to send me a postage paid return label with the promise that they would either repair or replace it after diagnosing the issue. Still waiting on their response upon getting the pedal back, but so far, the service has been pretty rad.

Got the new pedal itch again after sending my Arpanoid off only a day after I got to play with it, so I traded my Ghost Echo and Levitation for a Transmisser.

And, even though it's a ton less initially intimidating than the Arpanoid, I'm still pretty in awe of just how little nuanced knob twisting changes the way the pedal acts entirely. It's fuggin' awesome.

I've built a couple pedals from kits before but just ordered all the parts to build a Earthquaker Acapulco Gold clone, mostly because they appear to be incredibly simple - a 2 ICs, 6 capacitors, 1 diode, 3 resistors, and 2 pots for one with a gain control.

Nick Harris was killed by a falling tree branch two years ago. There has been fallout from that. Howard Gee, one of their other main designers, appears to have split from the company in the past few months and the reasons are as far as I know shrouded in mystery. They did a weird interview at winter NAMM where the guy running the booth didn't seem to know enough about the pedals to talk about them in-depth.

That Formula 55 pedal looks awesome, as does the Wampler Tweed '57 overdrive I learned about when I went down the rabbit hole. I have a Greer Ghetto Stomp, though, which I loved the second I heard Rick Holmstrom use one with Mavis Staples (he just keeps it snap, crackling and popping for the whole set), and I'm not sure if it supplies more or less enough the same stuff as those others.

Holy shit at the Bicycle Delay. That's got to be the best mostly impractical pedal ever. All these weird reverbs out there. For a while I wanted an Earthquaker Device Afterneath, that was a neat one.

A while ago a friend recommended the TC Electronics Hall of Mirrors, which is a pretty good reverb replicator. He also recommended the far less bespoke Zoom Multistomp, which comes close on a lot of fronts to what it is digitally mimicking.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 4 March 2018 15:43 (one month ago) Permalink

Personally I don't feel a great need for more overdrives, more amp emulations, or more delays and reverbs. I tend to get two or three good options in my arsenal and use those. In a normal gig I might use four sounds, and I would wager that no one in the audience would notice more than two (if they even think about it, which is itself vanishingly unlikely).

Me, what I want more of is modulation effects that are not primarily dependent on screwing with the fundamental pitch. So, flangers, phasers, ring mods, envelope filters, autowahs.

That's cool. I'm just completely floored by the EPH-3. I never thought I'd see a delay that made me rethink whether or not the Carbon Copy and the Jim Dunlop Echoplex were my #1 and #2 favorites. It's seriously that good.

Holy moly - the Kilobyte so much fun!

Elvis Telecom, Wednesday, 28 March 2018 23:19 (three weeks ago) Permalink

So, because I am obviously an absolute whore for delay, I picked up the Walrus Arp-87 and was really underwhelmed with it, unfortunately. It had no knob to adjust the delay time; only the secondary tap tempo footswitch. And because it is a standard size stompbox, it was very hard to get at the tap footswitch with the bypass footswitch being in such close proximity. And the bypass footswitch would sometimes just not work. Very shoddy. And besides, it just wasn't a very good sounding delay.

So I took it back and got the updated Keeley Caverns delay and reverb combo. It is really nice. And very diverse. You can really dive deep and get some different sounds. Only discrepancy is with the Spring reverb mode, as it is kind of hissy. Still sounds great on its own, though. Overall, it's way better than the Arp-87. No comparison, really.

The bottom having dropped out of the market for my lovely pre-Fender SWR Super Redhead (but idiot optimism telling me that it will be considered a classic soon enough), I am going to hold onto it for the time being. Which means I'm going to need a bass overdrive. What's good? I want something that's fairly touch sensitive (the more I plunk the more it barks) and that gets largely doom metal at extreme settings. I am in Europe, so European obscurities are more readily available to me than American obscurities.

I love my Fuzzrocious Cat Tail, a rat clone, on both bass and guitar. It covers a lot of ground and may be able to work for you. Here is one available in Europe:

http://www.effekt-boutique.de/fuzzrocious-pedals-rat-tail-jetzt-cat-tail.html?___store=en&___from_store=en

Darkglass is a Finnish company that basically specialized in making bass ODs. I had a Vintage Microtubes Deluxe once and it excelled at getting my dinky little practice amp into tube amp territory. You could poke around at their offerings. However, they're pretty expensive - some even say overpriced. I thought maybe they'd be cheaper in Europe since they're from there, but it doesn't look like it.

brendon urine (diamonddave85), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:06 (two weeks ago) Permalink

hummingbird is choppy but doesn't have tap tempo if that matters to you. it also has two speed sets and you have to flick a little switch to go from one to the other. i have one i'm not using if you're interested in a trade. you can email me at naamme at gmail if you want.

na (NA), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:16 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I will still defend the Boss TR-2 as a really solid tremolo. It can go from slow and smooth to quick and choppy and everything in between. No tap tempo, but enh, price is right: $100 new and usually much less than that second hand.

Has anyone had any experience or knowledge running your guitar through bass effects? In the past, before I upgraded to the Earthquaker Spatial Delivery, I preferred the bass input on the Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah and I currently prefer the bass input on my Boss BF-3 Flanger. It should be said that I do play very heavy gauge flatwound strings. I currently have these on my guitar — just tossed out the high e string. I'm chasing a bit more of a heavier chorus tone and the MXR Bass Chorus Deluxe is looking pretty enticing. Any thoughts?

I’ve got some trem ideas - if you want full chop, the Idiotbox Mad Doctor/Cyclops/Flash Stutters are optoisolator based and cheap.

I love the Mad Doctor - I have a mental oscillator drone box that has a stereo output so I can have two different fx chains in the output and sticking the Mad Doctor in one means that it accompanies itself.

If you're willing to put up with LED-induced epilepsy, the EHX Super Pulsar can do it all - chop, wobulate, anything.

It's not my personal jones but my longtime guitarist is a big Fulltone fan. Deja Vibe, Supa-Trem, or heck, both.
