So......... I've been out of the game for quite some time. I was recently asked to start a recording project with a good friend who is a phenomenal drummer and broke out all the gear after it had been sitting around collecting dust for the better part of three years. Which means I came back to TB. And then straight to the effects forum and then directly to the classifieds. And then I started buying more pedals, finally got a sixer, ordered a new head... you know how it goes. Recovery is a temporary thing for me. Anyhow, to the matter at hand. I am an effects junkie, especially dirt and even more so fuzz. I have had a bunch of them. I've sold and traded a bunch of them. I still have four fuzz pedals on my board: a Skullytone Russian Spy, Wounded Paw Battering Ram, Copilot Orbit and a Zvex Mastotron. I recently was exposed to the 3 Leaf You're Doom and LOVED the demo I watched, so I bought one. And it is... meh. On it's own, it's not a bad pedal at all, but I keep going back to the Mastotron for the same sound and what sounds better to me. Now, a lot of this is going into a Subdecay Prometheus for some synthy madness and I'm just not getting the same warm feelies from the Doom pedal. I did a search for "mastotron vs doom" but didn't find anything super relevant, so I'm hoping to solicit some focused opinions from people who have used both concurrently. Are they different enough for you to justify keeping both of them on a board? Something would definitely have to go if that's the case. Am I just not giving it enough time? I'll admit, I haven't been super patient with it. I'll run it for a bit and always end up switching to the Zvex because it makes me tingle. Any suggestions on what setting to try out on a couple of active basses to keep me interested? This recording project will mostly be drum and bass, so I can probably just dial in two distinct sounds to use, but so far, You're Doom has just been a bit of a flash in the pan for me and may end up back on the block sooner than expected. Please, drop any and all suggestions, soundclips or calls to reason as you see fit. Tl;dr - is a Mastotron and Doom redundant or am I just impatient and lazy?
