The natgeo sounds way better.

If I had the money I'd be all over it! Hahaha

Natgeo tafms ftfw. I almost want to sell mine but it fucking kills with HBs.

Mine has this blue rectangular trimpot with a brass screw...that just spins endlessly and seems to have no effect. Anyone else have this?

yooooo i bet that sounds ridiculous :drool:
as for that trimpot, it's a multi-turn pot so it has many rotations before you hit the end of the travel. that being said, it makes a very tiny click (more of a feeling than a sound) when you reach the end. it's easy to dial in a very precise point on the trimpot but obviously makes it impossible to know where it should be set once it has been fucked with.

when yall say a certain version sounded better, is there a reason why? just curious. i imagine that it's pretty rig-dependent but what do i know

I had an older one and a newer one with buffer and gate and I think I could get the same sounds from both but the newer has more range (and gate)

That version is still my favorite looking. Some nostalgia I tell you what.


I read on some other site there might be like, a TAFM, but like, smaller? :idk:
