So I figured it out. I have a blowtorch, and I loved the tone. However this weekend, at a gigi, my blowtorch with new batteries sounded like a horribly modified big muff. I was pissed!!! Well, I got a solution... The MXR Blowtorch runs off of 2 9volt batteries... 18 volts huh??? What happens when you drop the voltage??? Well 12 volts is the mark. With the volume down, you get plenty of output, and the pedal starts to break apart. When the volume is turned up, it turns into a muff clone, but has more low end... Just get yourself a negative pin 12v DC adapter, and go for it... Who needs a $350 woolly mammoth????
