Uh huh. Well. Some of us don't need pretty flashy stuff to be inspired as musicians. So, I don't have an issue with any of what you said.


As a musician, I agree. As a designer, ew gross. :idk:

You got to remember that not all people think the same. Could these look better? Sure. Do they need to? No. Not for this brand. I think is huge news for a lot of people. Not having to pay hype pricing on stuff that sounds amazing. I’ll take good sound over good looks any day of the week.

I know people think differently, which is why this is my opinion. Idk where you buy your fuzz pedals, but 200-400 dollar for dirt pedals don't categorically sound like a good deal to me. For that price for something as simple as a dirt circuit I'd at least want something more pleasing to the eye. But, yes, each to their own. Happy for you. :lol:

It's not a simple dirt circuit, there's a slow attack (?) circuit in there too (and the octave up). Maybe that's not a big deal to combine fuzz and slow attack* circuits into a single pedal, but nobody else (to my knowledge) has ever done it.

*(I am tempted to call it a Slow Gear but maybe it's not the same)

I'd rather have a plain looking pedal than one with skulls, monsters, naked ladies, etc.

That's just one of the pedals. 200 bucks more for a auto-swell compared to the other dirt pedal they have for sale? And you can't switch from swell mode live without potentially blowing your speakers because he was too lazy make the modes have the same volume output? And there's a $300 semi-clean octave up pedal? Idk, just doesn't seem justifiable based on their PowerPoint and MS Paint style designs. Again, that's just my opinion on the looks. I think they look cheap and uninspired. Uninspired, btw, is different from being 'not inspirational to me', Jwar, although the latter is also the case. It means I don't think the builder was filled with any sort of artistic excitement or sense of imagination when he made these designs, and it shows and makes them less desirable from a strictly non-pragmatic POV.

Hey, me too, man. I don't want any of those thing on my pedals either (although a cool looking monster fellow can potentially be a-ok if done right). I like simplicity and minimalism as much as the next guy, these are just not good examples of that, IMO, emphasis on the 'imo' part.

You know when you're showing someone younger than you something you think is amazing from you childhood, like a movie or a cartoon, and they tell you it's shit because it's outdated and the world has moved on. That's what this discussion feels like. Like I shat on your nostalgia by pointing out the clearly outdated aesthetics. :lol:

I truly am happy for you people if these are circuits you used to drool over but couldn't get your hands on at the time for whatever reason, and now you can. That's good stuff. Carry on.

I'm with UC. They look like they were cool twenty years ago, and they aren't exactly revolutionary in function. Yawn from me.

But I've never heard them and maybe they sound that amazing. :idk:

I'm glad you folks are happy though :hug:

Also, this is pretty rich coming from the man with a $2,500 wood carved top bass and a pedal rehouse and refinishing business. :lol: :hug:

In addition, this seems like a nostalgia play. These are for people who want the exact same pedals of yesteryear.

Bingo.

UC I’m not going to argue semantics with you. It’s pointless and not worth my time.
