    Just giving a heads up because I know there is a following here. It looks like the Bluebeards are going back into production again.

    bluebeards.

    Interesting. I tried to get on the list like two years ago, and nothing. I guess we’ll see where this ends up.

    Check Atomic for consignments.

  4. Nothing on Atomic. But, I’ve always wanted to try one.

  6. Looking at $199 and I have to say I'm pretty tempted .I just dropped Rebecca a message and she got back to me instantly.

    If I hadn't just dropped cash on an ADA Final Phase and another Jext Telez Dizzy Tone I probably would have ordered right there and then. Any idea what the switch is for? Mids, maybe? I should have asked.

    switch bypasses the tonestack. i got the first BB ever with this option and it's great if you need a less muffish sound without the mid scoop.

    i rarely use it but nice to have. love my BB. tone and fuzz set to min, volume to taste and it just sits in a mix perfectly

    Never heard of this pedal. Is it a muff clone?
     
  9. Yep. Apparently loosely based on the general guitar gadgets big muff circuit I seem to remember. It was all the rage a few years ago but they got harder and harder to get hold of.

    bluebeards on bass and guitar. I set the tone and fuzz quite low and use it as fuzzy sounding drive.

    Yes and spec'd to match one particularly awesome Ram's Head muff found in a studio IIRC. I've had one a few years with the tone bypass. Pretty rad, hands down favorite muff, lots of sweet spots.

  12. Just received my Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff. So torn on whether to return it and get the Bluebeard

    Hmm... A Deluxe Bluebeard would be pretty sick.

    there was once a Siamese bluebeard, not sure how many were made, but it was two BBs in parallel.

    I miss my Bluebeard. Ordered it straight from Sonny about 11 years ago and sold it to Atomic to finance some recording equipment about two years later . The only evidence of it passing through my life are:
    1.) a single track on the EP we recorded in 2008. Bass part for the intro was dual-tracked fretless - clean into an Alembic pre and Bluebearded.
    2.) Some sloppy amateurish ambient tracks recorded in my basement.
    3.) The VHS copy of "DC Cab" that Sonny used as packing material when he shipped me the pedal.

    They were always hard to get ahold of, even at the peak. :p
    I have one, though. :)
