What a fun little noise, experimental pedal
If you love everything about tape echo, but don’t want to spend ALL your money on an “always on” unit with actual tape then you have to get the Tapescape. The wobbles and warbles can range from buttery smooth to complete madness. Holding down the swell button adds a bit of chaos that every player should be adding to their arsenal. It’ll definitely turn heads.
I absolute love this pedal. It’s never leaving my board. Run, don’t walk to this pedal.
Works really well, I have 2 Effectrode pedals running off of it and I am using the volt capability as well. The supplied wall worts with Effectrode are very large and a typically spaced power strip you can’t use the outlet on either side of it. This helped me clean up the wall worts and get some space back.
I came across the Boonar while searching for better ways to take my tone to a higher level. It didn't hurt that David Gilmour uses it on his pedalboard either. I've only had it a coupe of weeks and I'm still experimenting with different settings and tones. It's completely changed my sound. I'm having to photograph my experiments and write up notes for every valuable configuration I come across. It's an incredibly fun process and the rabbit hole is deep!
One of the better things that has come from this is that I found a great music store that is competitive with it's pricing and shipping (vs the stale corporations) and I can deal with the people who run the business.
Like the Mustang GT, the Aerocomet has fantastic low noise fidelity, great dynamics and a wide range from clean to grit. The demo videos that attracted me to this pedal designer noted that he was well respected by other builders and diligently reproduced the sounds of the inspiration for the pedals. Both pedals are extraordinary and need a broader audience of appreciative musicians.
Using for bass primarily. So effin perfect for those sweet sweet Mike Gordon signature funk tones. This thing rips.
I've been eyeing this pedal for quite some time. I finally bit the bullet and picked one up. This is a really sweet delay with some features my other delays do not have. The pedal has a great range and can do traditional delay sounds but can also get into weird and crazy territory easily by a few knob adjustment while adjusting the envelope and sensitivity amounts.
The envelope control on this is pretty unique to me and can create tape delay sounding stops and stutters to your playing that can be adjusted to react to how hard you are playing. If you set the sensitivity just right, hard playing or abrupt stops in your playing cause it to detune and it sounds like its unraveling. All of the knobs are very interactive with one another so there are many different sounds that can be achieved. I appreciate the range that this can cover, and the ability to go from more traditional delay to whacked out pitch-shifted sounds. It also does a LUSH chorus/doubling affect as well. This was my first Mid-Fi pedal but it certainly won't be my last!
Dueling Distortion and Tremolo have always been a favorite combo of mine.
After being impressed by the Mattoverse Air Trash, I was excited to run across the Tremstortion. It's exactly what I was hoping for. Great sound and build quality. Uniquely diverse amount of wave forms and nice coloration of distortion tone. Bonus - It looks kick ass (love the Mattoverse logo). Plus the guy that makes them seems like an alright chap. I'm no expert, but I look forward to what else he releases. I dig it. - P. Scott
Originally I bought for my guitarist to use. Sounded great until one gig engaging boost = nothing. Pedal was in direct sun on a humid mid 80 degree day... Overheated?
Got it back to compare to and debug with a second unit I bought for my bass rig. No issues found, original unit has been fine ever since.
I current only use a small range with Peak Reduction at 8 O'clock, Gain at 12, Attack at 1130 and release at 1000 for my Musicman 5 string (9V) or I set Peak Reduction at ~7 O'clock for my Roscoe bass (18V).
I love the unit - which certainly evens out the volume across strings in a pleasing way to my ears. Can definitely hear the effect when slapping. That was my goal and the pedal really helps me by keeping my sound from falling out when tapping and slides.
I've collected a lot of lofi pedals at this point, and the Rec Head is at the top of my list. Unlike some other pedals, this one is incredibly organic sounding flutter, artifacts, and dynamic wobble. Great on it's own or paired with some light dirt and reverb, this box is great for adding some lo-fi character to your recordings!
Truly amazing amplifier in every way. Quality of construction and tone are impeccable. The sound is familiar yet unique, definitely bridging the classic Fender and Marshall tones. I am fortunate to have several topnotch amps, and I find myself plugging into my Rift Aynsley Lister as much as my vintage Marshalls and Fenders, and my Two Rock. Great amp, highly recommended!
The instant I plugged this pedal in and clicked it on, I knew this it was/is special. It easily exceeded the expectations I had from the video demos. The artwork is gorgeous and the components reportedly consistent with Neve console designs impressed me being dynamically responsive and articulate, Sone of the YouTube reviewers noted that the designer was a well kept secret within and well respected by other pedal designers. Let’s hope that secret gets out. Highly recommended
This really is two pedals in one. The fuzz is aggressive and harsh, but very controllable. A good to great fuzz effect, but the real magic of this pedal is the filter. The low and high pass filtering totally changes the texture and feel of the fuzz. Even better, the filter can be used all by itself, acting on any pedals earlier in your signal chain. I must admit it took me a couple of weeks to figure that out. Now I can not only filter the Urla Fuzz effect, I can filter and manipulate all of the overdrives and fuzzes on my board. Lots and lots of potential with this one.
i owned a doppelganger years ago and cloned it, i have also owned a few of the clones. i'd say this has all the sounds i liked about the original.
