Looks great, really straightforward controls. Curious about how it stacks up against the usual suspects when boosting a dirty amp. How's the noise and clarity?

I'll be doing a side by side with my Green Rhino in two weeks (hopefully); been needing a slightly smaller pedal and I think I'll like the more "true to form" 3 band EQ.

At just before 2:00 in, he starts playing with the settings and I think that's probably what you wanted to see

awesome, can't wait. Are you the same guy who did the Green Rhino vs CM-2 and determined the Green Rhino was quieter?

Making a TS isn't amazing or exciting, no. Making one with good controls and lower noise than competitors is though. To me at least.

Know of anything with a good noise suppressor built into it, by any chance?

Yeah that was me; CM-2 caused more feedback when using the level control as a boost (gain 0) to a rather dirty amp; although this was back when I had my VK212 as opposed to my current XXX 212, so don't let that be an end-all be all description.


I agree, it literally is the same pedal rebuilt to appease all nuances for tone. Although I'll take the more versatile clones over the 3 knob Ibanez's.

I've yet to see an OD/TS with built in noise gate/special circuitry for it; seen it on a few fuzzes and metal pedals, though.

VFE caught my eye too, both the pale horse and The Scream.

that demo was kinda lacking. the amp was already set to the brootz so hard to tell how much the pedal was really doing past making it a little louder. tough to judge how good the eq is as well (i do ike the 3 band idea). would also like to hear how it does in low gain situations

Speaking of VFE, the Focus looks to be pretty interesting. Its got a knob for high pass and low pass filters, and a seperate toggle for both to either be a drastic or more subtle cut. Ryan Bruce aka Fluff did a demo of it.

as far as having a noise suppressor built in, i honestly would rather not. if i wan't noise reduction i would get another ISP decimator. i don't have noise issues with my rig with normal OD's and boosts.
