    Saw this the other day:

    Sounds pretty nice to me. If it's the same price as the rest of Taurus's Silver line, then it's also a touch cheaper than the Micro POG (new anyway).

    Hmmm... Seems to sound thicker and less digital than the POG... No stupid warble... Could be a winner...

    It does sound good but the only way it'll be a MicroPog "killer" is if it takes less than 100mA's and you don't have to use a wall wart. That would really set it apart.

    Not going to happen with a digital pedal.

    Like I said it's not going to be a MicroPog "killer" with those power requirements. It does seem like a good sounding pedal. I'm sure people will be buying them once they're available if they're not already.

    I don't actually mean to insinuate that this pedal would be able to take over the market share of an EHX product. But it seems to me that it solves some of the problems bassists generally cite about the Micro POG -- particularly the artificial tone -- and octavers in general. The seller, for me, are the range controls, which cut out the lowest and highest frequencies. So you can tighten up the low end and reduce the shrillness of the high end.

    The power requirements are a non-issue for me at least. I could just pick up any number of reverse polarity adapters. For the record, the power req is 12VDC/150mA. So less mA than a Micro POG.

    12VDC ... deal breaker from me & most people I imagine.

    For the dexter?! Wow. Yeah, I'd rather get a POG. The 12v bothers me as well.

    Yeah, that's too much. The other pedals I've seen of theirs were all 209.

    Hard to tell if it sounded bad or if he just miffed the chord himself, but it didn't sound great for chords.. at 300+ new, ill take a pog 2


    FWIW i run my micro pog in a parallel loop and i cut the shrill highs pre-pog, and it really smoothes out the sound

    I'm still more interested in the EQD Pitch Bay.

    Price is too high unfortunately. I've had a POG2, couldn't deal with the metallic organ tone. The Pitch Bay sounds horrible to me. How can people stand that warble?

    I would think that most people that could afford a $330 pedal, can afford a Fueltank or something similar.

    My pedals are all over the place from 9 to 12 to 18 - some positive center and others negative. If it weren't for the Fueltank I would be $hit out of luck.

    I think this pedal sounds great. I have enough octave type pedals though.

    Great point! The pedal sounds really good. For me I have enough pedals that require a higher than 100mA @ 9v so to add a 150mA @ 12v is a deal breaker. I am all set with octaves as well, well, when my SubT arrives I'm hoping I'll e all set with them!!!
