    Awesome stuff, awesome stuff.

    Now I'm tempted to buy A Blowtorch... need money...

    My Morley Power Wah restoration project ate up the last of my "okay to spend money"...

    I mainly like the subtle ones (sample 7 is a bit too subtle, though). Ed has mad skills, by the way, great feel.
     
  3. Hmm sounds interesting, I didn't care too much for it when it started sounding synthetic. I was looking for something that sounded really :mad: and growling. It holds the bottom-end very well, I'll give it that, but can it sound evil and pissed off (can I say "pissed")? :help:
     
  4. I couldn't help but notice that the Blowtorch wasn't supposed to be released today? Jim Dunlop website remains quiet on the new product.

    Yes it can but that's not a sound that I care for for my own personal use(if it's asked for in the studio by a producer then I would use it in that setting).in that mode it's just a little to brittle for me.

    i like it. i see it as this quasi-fuzz that has this funky squarewaveish clipping to it, sort of reminds me of germanium diode clipping, but with a great blend, and retention of the original tone.

    darn, i guess it'll have to sit next to my bassdrive.
     
  8. Thanks!;) :hyper: :bassist: You rock!
     
  9. hey Jauqo,
    (I spelt it right this time) Is your MXR Blowtorch a prototype or the final product? Just wondering.
