    Just got word of a new Prometheus paint job


    Tone factor will have some this week, other retailers soon after that.

    I suddenly enjoy my Prometheus a little less :bawl:

    If it's any consolation I like the old paint job a LOT better.

    I prefer the old one. :meh:

    Is that supposed to be fire or smell? Looks like smell.

    While I understand Prometheus brings fire, I think I like the old one better.

    Send yours to me. I'll paint a fire-breathing dragon made out of fire being breathed out by another fire-breathing dragon made out of fire while playing Eruption on a guitar shaped like Eddie Van Halen playing Eruption on his guitar, which is made out of fire on it.

    Meh the old one looks better imo. Those look more like fumes then flames. Honestly the first image I got was a steaming pile of crap. Although the Prometheus is an awesome sounding pedal.

    Didn't notice that at first. And in agreeance with i think everyone above me. Old one is better
  16. Hmmmm ... yeah ... I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with you all there ... Some artwork is better than no artwork.

    tasteful lettering and 2-color minimalism IS artwork

    the new "artwork" makes it look cheap.

    the original design fit the pedal - keep in mind it is aimed at electronic musicians as much as string players. the aesthetic was perfect.

    Not a fan of either paintjob.

    Still an awesome sounding pedal for sure. Going to have to get one and A/B it next to my Fatman.

    Regardless of the new paint job, I still want one.
  20. i'd certainly love to here that, i wish the fatman could do the step filter stuff :(

    i still love my prometheus, although it's a bit of a hassle to get some of the step sequences back, it makes for a great sort of live interlude, just hitting open a's and twiddling those sensitive step and rate knobs until you get it (wasn't really much of a gig, more an open jam session, but people digged it)
