The Pedals and effects demo made it make a lot of sense, it's a great follow up to the insanity of the Data Corrupter. Not everything is about us. :lol:

Still not my thing. :idk:

I totally get this sentiment but I feel like the overdrive market is already oversaturated as it is (pun intended), and, like I said, in my situation it makes virtually no sense to pay upwards of €100 or even €200 on a dirtbox unless it does something I can't DIY (yet). Not cost effective, waste of capital, you know, much like EQD I know how to think business but from my own point of view ;)

That said there was nothing wrong with the sounds in the demo at all. As a sound engineer I would enjoy working with a guitarist who has one on his board in the future.

Well the Douglas Firs and coffee part was an obvious Twin Peaks nod, but I did not remember the street name of EQD's birth. I need to become a better historian of Earthquaker lore.

Maaaaaaaaan you can believe what you want but I'm increasingly convinced there's a lanky English dude in there who puts TV's on the oversized rims of a Vauxhall Corsa and the energy produced from that is how the pedal makes noise. It needs power all the time because otherwise Tim will get cold and afraid because he doesn't like the dark.

I'm kind of into that Westwood. I've been looking for a pedal to bridge the gap between sterile clean and full Big Muff, this might do the trick. DOD 250 looked to be a good solution, but the lack of tone control made it not work for me. I had a Timmy clone for a while but wasn't too thrilled about the gain, it was either all or none.

Don't believe the street name thing or the geezer Olin's going on about, pretty sure it's a reference to Westwood Studios and the pedal is made to cop the tones of Hell March. They obviously can't say that, cause then Manny would tell them they're a bunch of commies.

Yeah, there's nothing wrong w/ the Westwood unless you really don't care about utility at all.

Plus, it's not like EQD hasn't made unexciting pedals before. :idk: :lol:

God I hate Ryan Adams.

The EQD Westwood sounds ok. I'd probably never use it because I already have shit that can do the exact same sound. I mean...maybe I'd try it down the road.
