Hey guys so I was supposed to get this freaking nice TS clone pedal with bunch of settings, 2 stompswitches (with 2 different pedals in it, booster and the TS) and whatnot. Sounded freaking awesome! Been waiting for it for a month already and finally the thing came in mail!!!


except that it wasn't quite what I expected.

It doesn't only not have two pedals in it and 2 stompswitches... but.. it doesnt have any stompswitch at all!!!


check it for yourself




didn't come with screws either... so I opened it and saw that thing there





it says 'why did you open it or whatever... and there's a =( sign....


where's my TS!

I don't know if you're trolling or what but that thing looks like a huge piece of crap.

Send it back?
#4
That's awesome. I'm gonna start a pedal company and just fill the boxes with wires and put a note on the inside that says 'Does this look right to you?'

Surely you should have known it was ****ed when you saw that there's nothing even close to a Tubescreamer in the features on the front of the pedal.

Whoever sold it you is definitely a scammer or something.
One cos of that.

Two cos they've had you believing a BYOC OD-II is a Boutique pedal!

It's so boutique that they didn't have time to finish it.

I think the tone got sucked out the window when it was on the airplane.

Take a dump in a box and send it to him.

I've ordered a pedal a few weeks ago and it's taking ages. But it's from JMI so I know it's gunna be the real deal. Want to hurry up and get here.

Reminds me of this.

ROFL! I literally LAUGHED OUT LOUDLY!!!


so yeah guys.. it wasn't that serious of a troll or somehting but I definitely got some big lolz!


I present you this prototype actually called DaVinci by God Box fx

I got custom graphics with this artist's artwork (I guess I can link his website if it doesn't contain anything but art: no links to buy anything, even his art, no ads?). It's printed btw. the real deal would cost me too much :P




that, and a close up, although the camera's shaky there so you cant see the amazing details of the artwork :P



That thing is quite unique. It's got 6-position diode switch, input cap switch (no tone knob but a switch which does a nice job to be honest, better than I expected ), gain and volume, on the right side you get gain and volume. The right side feeds into the other one but both are true bypass and you can run each individually. the right side is a bit bassy which is pretty cool for me . I didn't quite expect it to really suit my needs (thought it'd be a vintage thingy) but it tightened my tone and got me to where I really wanted to get but didn't know how or what was missing. So yeah sounds like a Paul Gilbert planted in the pedal

Idk when I'll get clips but I'm having a gig this saturday so I hope i'll get some usable videos and pics




oh and also that pedal in the OP is actually one of my booster prototypes that I was willing to replace with a envelope filter so I figured it might look nice here XD

so you made yourself a pedal?

yeah I do make pedals actually and this one was a transparent booster but I didn't find a usage for it really by then. Then I needed a truebypass box so I took the 3pdt off by then


Quote by Roc8995
And then bought a real one because yours was terrible?

yeah I got the real one but not cause mine was terrible just got it haha

I'm not sure how to take this. I assume they're not dodgy, being so closely related to Vox, Hiwatt and all that, right?

They're not related to the real Vox, Hiwatt or anything else. Music Ground bought the JMI and Hiwatt names in the 90s. They've got a history of producing fakes and passing them off as vintage originals. Their pedals aren't real recreations of the originals. They just use clones of the original chassis and hope the buyer hasn't heard the real thing. They've been investigated for criminal charges at least once, have closed down and reopened at least once, etc. Not a company I would do business with, especially when better clones are available for lower prices.

It's coming direct from JMI. I've only ever read good things about them.

Ahhhh fuck. This is so bad. I'm ringing them tomorrow. This is horrible. I've just been reading into this, about them stealing guitars. But they're still open and running, so that's gotta be a sort of good sign, right?
