after listening to the PGS demo it sounded like someone TRIED to make a peavey 5150 in a pedal...

...Emphasis on "tried".

The TL-2 demo (which I've heard actually doesn't do the pedal justice) sounds alot better to me.

The one I've played sounded even worse than the PGS demo. Hands down the worst piece of crap I've ever tried. I thought the stock MT-2 sounded better and I hate that pedal. I can't see this thing lasting for more than a year.

It sounds just like Dimebag.

That is, it sounds awful.

dude.. dime's sound is cool and fun. Not awful.

The fullbore metal sounds awful though. No pedal can do metal like an amp can unless you shell out at least a couple hundred dollars.

One can build a Dr. Boogie for 1/10 of that in parts.

i got one a few days ago. you can get a pretty wide range of sounds out of it. it got a 3 band eq so you can tweak it a lot. loads of distortion. the noise gate works well and comes in handy with all the gain. scoop works pretty good too.

sounds pretty good once it's dialed in. only problem ive had with it so far is that is sometimes it almost sounds like its bottoming out the preamp/speaker on my amplifier, but i got that to go away after adjusting it betwwen my amp and the pedal.

i traded a boss md 2 mega distortion in for it. i like it a lot better. as much distortion as you could probably get short of a dimed peavey 5150.

i thing it sounds great for me, try it out and see what you think of it

Hardwire TL-2's true demo IMO:

(Click Tight 1)

I'm tried the MXR Fullbore just a few days ago, and it was ok (I'd give it a 5/10), but honestly it doesn't compare to other dist. pedals like the TL-2/Tonebones/GT-2/TC Electronic/etc.



You're comparing a pedal to a Hardwire eh? that's not very fair Hardwires, non-boutique pedal wise, are imo one of the best things to have hit the market.

Thin and lifeless, WAAAAYY too harsh to be even usable IMO. I prefer smoother tones.

from what I heard it's better than the fullbore and I tbh never tried it, people seem to like it I CAN testify however that the hardwire series is the shiznit.

It sounds like it's trying to copy Dimebag but goes overboard. There was so much gain and so little note definition that most genres of metal like thrash, core and most others just aren't feasible. I suppose it has it's place in Nu-metal but thats about it.

I guess it would be useful for a beginner who wants to record some heavy power chorded tracks. It seems like the opposite of the MT-2, on that even with the bass cranked you couldn't get rid of that paper thin sound it gave but on the PGS demo it was just to thick that whenever he played a fast riff the notes were just a blur.
