    Hello

    I'm looking to get a dirty synth sound that can get smooth and funky. For this purpose, I've focused on these pedals but will listen to suggestions.

    I'm torn primarily between the RR and the PnC. They both sound great to me. The TWA Dynamorph seems the least appealing of the 3 not because of sound but on the basis of price vs value. It may be far better and I'm just missing something.

    Any suggestions on these or other dirty synthy pedals would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Personally I GREATLY preferred the Prunes & Custard over the Red Ripper.

    I haven't tried the Dynamorph but it definitely seems like a modded Prunes & Custard with envelope control and a few other extra controls. The price, the jacks both being on one side and the dumb control names have kept me from ordering one. That and I don't hear much in the demos that you can't get very close with the P&C and good control of dynamics.

    Hope that helps.

    I only own / have tried the P&C so unable to help, but the others do seem more versatile at least.

    The CoPilot Orbit, WMD Geiger Counter, Iron Ether Subterranea and Digitech Dirty Robot are worth checking out also!

    Big ups to Jared and Dannybuoy, the P n C is working out, and the Dirty Robot is freaking awesome.

    The prunes and custard is the one I want. That's all I know :)
    To me it's 'the original' when it comes to this kind of thing - the first one I ever heard.
    Dynamorph to me smells of clone( speaking from a bit of an ignorant place, not having tried it and just going on impression).

    You could add another option as well: the Source Audio Multiwave Bass Distortion.
    I have a Prunes & Custard clone that I absolutely love and I think it's the best in this type of synthy, sweepable fuzzy sound.
    But I had a while back a SA MWBD and recently I started to miss some of the sounds that his pedal does and I just got another one back.
    And it really is a great pedal for synthy sounds. I remember that it didn't like any pedals before it and that was one of the reasons that I led me to sell it, but you can blend your dry signal, have 2 presets to use and it can do so much more than any of these other pedals, like octave up.
    I'm really glad that I got one back.
