    It says on the website it's a more tweakable version of the blower box!!! I NEED this pedal. I'm so exited I leaked a little when I saw it! Haha.

    I saw that! I can't afford any of his stuff right now but it all looks really cool! I loved the tourbox I got two years ago. So many goodies!!

    Well after all those couple of binges I saw you tote on Instagram and such, I can see why ;) You got some prime stuff over there @jwr

    I'm right there with ya though dude. I had to get that new car a few months back so its gonna be tight for me for a while. But I could totally find a way to make this happen if I think it'll overtake my BB. I love my BB, so we'll see about that. But this thing sounds pretty bad a$$. I REALLY want it. Just like everything else I get GAS for....

    Resurrecting an old thread to ask if anyone knows what the other three knobs do.

    On the website it says that they're an extra knob each for controlling low and high boost/cut and distortion, but it's never specified what that means.

    What I'm hoping is that it's a center frequency sweep for each eq band, that would make this pedal truly amazing in the possible tweaks.

    So would I. I wonder how heavy this pedal sounds. I'm gonna guess it sounds Metal! \m/

    Heavy as a very heavy thing.

  8. Can't believe I'm saying this but I actually don't like how it sounds in that demo compared to a regular Blower Box.

    what don't you like as much?
     
  10. The compression just seems over the top and messy in a bad way. I'd like to mess with one but I probably won't buy a new one.

    It seems it cuts too much lows.

    Were you listening through good speakers?! Are you kidding? I listened through headphones and in my car and the low end sounded massive in both. Just like the BB.

    a lot of boomies - yes, but it blurs the sound.

    It could just be the demo.

    To me, it sounded a lot like the BB just with more EQ. Which is what it is haha. I listened to it a few times actually. I felt it sounded the BB. That Rat'ish sound was there, the sag was there, the deep low end was there, the biting treble was there. So overall I think it sounds marvelous.

    My one wish, and maybe that's what those new knobs are for, is/was that those were for mids. How cool would that be if it was like a Peavey amp EQ sorta, where it was like high mid/mid mid/low mid?!!?! I think it is like some have said already, they are freq sweeps for the high and low and maybe even effects the way the gain clips. I'm not sure still. I should message Matt and see if he could give me a definitive answer.

    YES!! Love the Blower Box, but there are times I wish it had mid control(s). Looks like the Landphil is huge compared to the BB, I wonder what else is going on inside?

    Anyway, please post back if you hear anything from Matt about the new controls. Subbing the thread.

  18. I haven't seen gutshots but I'd be really really surprised if the huge case wasn't picked just for aesthetics. Those huge enclosures are kind of popular among crusty bands for whatever reason so it makes sense.

    I will for sure man! I know, I'm right there too, love my BB. The Landphil would be the only thing that would knock it off. Which brings me to my next point of HUGE......

    Heck yeah it is!!! If/when I did/do get the Landphil, I will have to take something else off besides the BB as well. I think it will be worth it though. But yeah, I dont think some realize how large the box it. Have you guys seen someone holding it?! Its HUGE! haha
