Has anyone tried the new Maxon auto-filter?

  1. It looks cool. It's nice and small and is supposed to be very Mu-tron-ish.

  2. Apparently the old ones are da ****. These aren't any less cheaper but are supposedly carbon copies schematic wise. Guess they'd be worth a go....
    How's your new Filter Queen doing ya?
     
  3. The queen is really neat. I like to put the lfo on a nice broad sweep to get a phaser-like tone then add a little bit o' envelope. It sounds really cool with distortion and digital delay, too.
     
  4. Is this some Ibanez knock-off? The housing is exactly like Ibanez effects were in the 80's.
     
  5. The Maxon factories produced earlier Ibanez pedals before they made enough money to manufacture them themselves...
     
  6. I was told by a retailer that these are the same as the Originals except they A) say Maxon and B) have a true bypass (they are quieter in the chain).
