    When I started getting into boutique pedals there was a select list of "must haves." Getting my hands on a COG Effects pedal without paying full price was one of those goals.
    I have achieved that goal!
    This new-to-me TK-421-X custom is a fun little box. I've only spent 30 minutes with it and I can already see a lot of potential. The Blend acts like a clean channel volume, similar to the TAFM, with a LPF for taking out highs if you want. The Level is the dirt channel volume, so you can mix an match levels however you want. LPF-2 is a tone for the dirt channel and there is a 4 position clipping rotary on the front instead of inside.
    I also got it super cheap, especially for a COG. I'd almost feel bad for the Aussie that sold it to me if it hadn't been an Aussie that talked my first wife into divorcing me and then moving to Australia. I got a better second wife and a nifty pedal, so Karma is right by me.

  3. I love my mini TK-421 it’s the distortion tone I’ve been searching for since I started playing.

    I used mine at practice two nights ago. It is pretty neat. It is a very "complete" sounding distortion, is that makes any sense.
    I'm very happy so far.

    The current model, like mine, is "retired" and a lot of the newer models are smaller. It could be coming. I think they will custom anything reasonable.
     
  7. It's why I asked... its not on the stock products page and when I asked Tom it's been coming for 12 months or so now :(
