Just saw it here:
Black on Black.
As an avid advocate of the Supercollider, I have been waiting for this for a very long time. It will be good.
What a creative endeavor! .....
...on black, ya dig?
When I had a super-rare '78 Rat (that I had to sell ) it was probably one of the heaviest tones I've had that retained good note attack. I seriously can't wait to get this puppy.
Well, I don't need more pedals, but I just placed an order for the black on black. I sent an e-mail to see if six people beat me to it.
I am already eager to see how it compares to my Rat Tail.
It's not like I need more dirt pedals, but I have to try this one out, so I ordered one too!
Too bad the black/black ones are gone though.....
This vs. a Rat Tail - someone please!!
I've got one ordered in Green with Black Ink! I've wanted a rat clone for a long time and I'm super excited this is on it's way. Can't do a comparison with the Rat Tail unless someone has one in the Houston area and wants to get together.
Yeah, I really don't need anymore. I have a Rat Tail, a Bluebeard, and a custom Mail Order Muff. I sold many fuzz pedals to get here, but what the hell!
I assume since the black on black ones are no longer available, I am one of the lucky ones!
Don't worry, Atuk. I'll be doing the comparison when I get mine.
EDIT: I'm sorry. That probably sounds extremely racist. Mordecai Richler's The Incomparable Atuk is one of my favorite books. Atuk rules.
I just read on ILF that Excane's got an Iron Pig and has already made a video demo of it!
It's not up on his youtube channel yet though...
Just how many Rat clones are gonna come out? It is getting a little bit ridiculous...
Compared to Muffs though....
I think the clipping options and the OD/Dist MAY make this worth existing.
I used to have a rat from the early 80s. It was my first pedal. It was good on guitar and sucked on bass.
Got the confirmation e-mail to let me know I've got a black on black on pre-order. Mmmhmmm.
My prediction is 5,287
Simple circuit = WIN
Easy to build = WIN
Popular sound = WIN
Easy to sell = WIN
Looks like a winner!
Yea maybe but it's Earthbound Audio. They make quality stuff.
I agree but again above sentence.
I'm not saying anything about build quality or beauty of the gear. I am simply expressing my surprise that there is a market for it.
And no kidding on the muffs...There are so so many, and lots of them sound exactly the same.
I would say 90% of them sound the same. LOL! I've tried many muffs, and have only like a few of them.
The Rat things is kind of lame, but Earthbound Audio makes cool enough stuff that I'd at least try it.
Everything seems to be the same in fuzz anymore. I'm very seldom wowed by it.
Thought I'd never say that either.
The market is totally saturated, IMO. There are so many companies doing similar stuff that even if you do make something that sounds cool or different, people don't care. Too many fuzz pedals....
It's the month of the Pig. I don't suppose anyone has heard anything about an approximate ship date? I want to put it against my Rat Tail!
Don't you guys make a muff clone? Seems like the pot calling the kettle black.
