It seems Red Witch may have gone under

    I ordered a Pentavocal Tremolo from Musictoyz a little more than 2 weeks ago. I have sent emails to MT and called them and they finally got back to me today. They said that they have been calling (line got disconected) and emailing (no reply) Red Witch for weeks trying to get pedals from them, but they haven't responded. Musictoyz sent me an email saying they think that Red Witch might have gone under, they refunded my money as well.

    This stinks. Now I gotta figure out another Tremolo and Phaser pedal. Oh well, the hunt continues.

    Maybe try the Empress tremolo. Its getting rave reviews.

    Lots of good Phasers out there. I am actually quite satisfied with my True bypass modded Phase90. It sounds delicious!
     
  3. Well, I'm looking at the Retro-Sonic Phaser. It seems like a very quality pedal, plus it has the most features I've ever seen in such a small package.

    There are plenty of good trems out there. What about the Cusak Tap-A-Whirl?

    im thinking about getting a Subdecay Quasar for my Phaser (since the RW Moon Phaser is Ghandi) and holding off on the trem for a little while.


    The whole Red Witch thing kinda sucks though. I really wanted to give the Deluxe Moon Phaser and Pentavocal Tremolo a shot. Looks like they will be rare now.

    Well Tone Factor as blowing out the Nebula's and Sugar Baby's due to the brand change so that is something to consider but in saying that I just sold my Nebula as I'm only using the Quasar (I also really needed money for more pedals) I greatly prefered the Quasar to the Red Witch though I've not A/B'ed them the Quasar had me all a gasp and the Red Witch just made me think hmmmm shiny :D But with the blow out I might have to buy the Nebula again I really liked that phaser for those KISS/Plug and play moments

    Nice to see Musictoyz customer service is as good as ever :scowl: with the whole 2 weeks to respond :rollno:

    I posted this over at Tone Factor's Forum to see if anyone there knew anything.

    I'll post the comments that they give over there but I'm leaning to it being an issue with Musictoyz.

    Tone Factor have the normal Red Witch phaser in you know minus the LED and Stereo or at least it looks like they do.

    I suggest you get the Halophaze and the Powerglide from Tone Czar. They're chrome just like Red Witch units, although you might have to wait a while for delivery.

    Toneczar isn't taking new Powerglide orders until the queue is cleared and he does some upgrades to the design.

    mmmmm.....Toneczar.....mmmmmmmm

    Yeah I wish I could get a bunch of Toneczar stuff, I'm just not into waiting more than 2 weeks for an effect. I'm impatient like that.:p
     
  16. i've been looking into the empress trem for quite some time. i may just pull the trigger after i get paid on friday aswell.

    and the quasar is an amazing phase shifter (atleast in my experience)
