well, they are on two separate pics, one was on my board for BOTB, and the other three haven't been posted yet.





alright here come the reviews!

cmatmods deeelay - great delay, it is digital, not BBD (like most of the shit i have been buying), but it doesn't sound as sterile as some digital delays are. it is a little warmer, but it doesn't decay like an analog. it is on my board and staying there accompanied by my trusty malekko 616. $95 shipped reverb (dot com).

zvex mastotron - i don't know what to say about this. its flat fucking wicked. not the most musical, in terms of common uses, but it is nuts. the fuzz knob has a wide range, there is a switch for three different "sub" layers, it gets really deep or really tinny depending on settings. the wave mod knob is pretty interesting, and also the impedence knob is sweet too. this will be great for some stoner type stuff, and just messing around. $96 shipped reverb (dot com).

cmatmods analog chorus - this is just flat glorious, the knobs have a huge range, it is so smooth and liquid. it will be going on one of my boards soon. not much to say, other than a great BBD chorus. it is equal to my malekko chorus, but slightly different. ~$100 reverb (dot com).

pigtronix polysaturator - i got it from reverb for $50. it came with the wrong adapter, and it wasn't working right. i was in contact with pigtronix and they provided me with some assistance in the diagnosis and it ended up being a slightly unseated IC. this pedal needs 18v IMO (is equipped to handle it despite being rated at 15V via pigtronix). there is a HUGE range of gain and volume. the EQ is active with a +/- 12db/octave sweep. i am using it as more of a muff type thing, but it has a very broad range of tone. its a keeper. new they go for $180, they aren't worth that, but for what i paid for it it turned out to be awesome.

the more and more i have been messing with the mastotron, three things are happening:

#1 i am liking it more.
#2 the more ridiculous it sounds (in a good way).
#3 my settings are going more extreme (lolz).

i think everybody needs one. talk about nasty fuzz... lol.

That Mastotron sounds sick! I just listened to a demo.... do want.

I'm supposed to be doing the "new amp" thing but, I mean, pedals are so tempting!

the mastotron is just a flat out beast. its kind of funny, i went from buying a ton of guitars, to a ton of amps, and now i am in the pedal phase.

i have three more coming in the next week.

Zvex knows how to make an obnoxious fuzz. I want to try the Mastotron, I have the Fuzz Factory and it is ridiculous(ly fun). I loved the Box of Rock too, great take on a Marshall-in-a-box.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

HNPD! You sir have excellent taste in pedals.

You say the cmatmods chorus is slightly different from your Malekko. I'm interested to hear how the two compare.

i haven't a/b'd them yet as they are on different boards, but i have messed with them a bit.

the cmatmods has a much larger range on the speed than the malekko. the depth is similar. the malekko is more fluid and more dreamy sounding. the cmatmods is maybe a little less luscious, but its just a different flavor.

they are both awesome units. for the prices they go for they are a killer deal. i have owned a few MXR 80's choruses and the malekko and cmatmods flat out own them. no dispute. [however the MXR's were stereo], but i never used the stereo mode.

also compared to current offerings from the big name (boss, digitech, dod, mxr, etc.) for the price you get the cmatmods and malekko for used it is exponentially better. no contest.

one of these days i will get my recording shit together and i will make an A/B video of them. if i remember (lol) i will come back here and post it. however, i am dragging my ass on the recording stuff.
