  2. Have you played many other distortion pedals? Can you compare the El Oso to anything?

    The El Oso reminded me of a Rat with low-end. It didn't sound exactly like a Rat, just reminded me of one based on its gain structure.

    The El Oso sounds better than a Rat to me, fuller sound, less upper mid focused, less buzzy.
     
  4. Got any clips of the Timmy? Always been curious of how it would sound on bass.

    No, sorry I don't.
    In fact, I never hooked my bass up to it, only guitar.
    Also, this drive is very dynamic in that it will sound like an angel's loving whisperings with one person's gear, and an ogre farting in a pickle jar on another's.
    So really, descriptions and examples are kinda useless...

    You just gotta try it with your gear and see if it works.
    It's like a Klon in that respect I guess.
    Some love it, others think it's way overhyped.
    I fit somewhere in between, I guess.

    I will say that it is a very nice and well thought out drive. And the build quality is high.
    I'm selling it because I've come to realize that I simply don't need a drive pedal for my guitar board.

    Hmmm, ok... compared to an EQD Monarch at 18v I'd say the Monarch is raspier, while the Timmy is warmer... The Monarch is crisper, while the Timmy is mushier (but in a good way).
    These comparisons are with a Schecter Devil Spine w/ a single bridge DiMarzio Petrucci humbucker and Kerly jazz heavy strings (so metal).

    I know!

    I keep looking at it, all snug in it's box looking all badass and such... I truly wish I could use it with my rig, but it's just too redundant with all the other awesome crap I have on my board.

    If it helps....PRICE DROP!!!

    And thanks for the bump JS!

    I like your webpage too, timely article on time management since I have a portfolio/master's thesis due in like 3 weeks. Time management is getting critical!

    c'mon friends, don't make me put this back on my board....
     
  20. A bump for the bear. I just got one -- cool pedal, lots of versatility, from subtle to mammoth.
