that sounds like a overpriced cocktail they'd be peddling in the tonier bistros of Georgetown.

Agreed. The noise floor is a tinge obnoxious in Harmonic Fuzz and Clean Boost modes, it takes some tweaking to achieve optimal response to playing dynamics, and the chassis is the size of an amp modeling workstation, but there are usable tones a plenty, and the EQ can near HM-2 chainsaw range (more so when fed into other gain sources). If there were a built-in noise gate, less compression, and settings that could approximate Big Muff and Harmonic Percolator textures, it would be closer to perfect IMO.

Got a chance to try a Roland JC120and was blown away. Always been a basic low-watt-single-channel-tube-amp-guy so I was pretty surprised. So big and heavy, yet still want

How much do I love the lazery down-swept envelope filter all over Culture's sleeper classic International Herb album? Only completely. Utterly. Herbally.

Internationally.


Dat album cover is no slouch either. :p

The smaller versions of that sound equally as great, would recommend.

if i were funded i'd definitely check out the 40-watt (i think?) Jazz Chorus. Neil Halstead used to play through a JC120 and a Twin Reverb; i don't know if he used them both at once or switched between them. the 120 is just too damn big and heavy for me, though...the days when i could tote a Twin up five flights of stairs are long gone.

I am still looking for a pitch Shifter that tracks well and doesn't cause volume drops. I need it to track fast riffs and to be polyphonic. Small is a plus.
Saw basically every demo of boss Ps series, Ricochet and Pitch Fork,a and i am strongly considering the latter one.
Now I am asking for first hand impressions: is the Pitch Fork really what I am looking for?

My first thought when I saw this was definitely Pitch Fork. The Ricochet tracked super weirdly to me. It tracks super clean and smooth.

Totally unrelated, anyone know where I can get a footswitch for a block letter 5150?

Thanks! :thumb: that's the confirmation I needed.

Yaz--haven't personally found anything that matches Pitchfork overall for it's tracking and all that it does. I can maybe see a preference for something else for a particular functionality the Pitchfork doesn't have, or for a limited case, like octave down, where I've seen some prefer a limited use octave-only pedal, but in terms of fast, accurate tracking for many fixed (ie., not harmonized) pitch shifted intervals, it is still riding high.
