    Once more; the title says it.
    What's the word on SolidgoldFX in terms of QC and overall Quality/reliability etc.
    Since hearing about them in another thread I am quite tempted to get one of their pedals, hence my question.
  2. I love my Stutterbox. Rock solid. Great boxes. They did a tour box on, so there are a bunch of reviews there. I'm really tempted by the If 6 was 9, if only for aesthetic reasons. If I didn't love my Caroline Kilobyte, the Electroman would be my next choice I think.

    sub'd... I don't need one, REALLY don't need one, but the Beta intrigues me a bit. I guess I have never heard an OD I did not want to own/try :)

    I would like to know if it is true bypass. Anyone?

    The BETA is indeed rather tempting.
    Does anyone here know if it is based on something specific?
    To me it sounds quite unique.

    I don't know if the Beta is based on anything, but I know that it sounds really nice. Got to try the one they were reviewing for Tone Report. Nice tone / texture. Goes from light overdrive, to heavy distortion without the buzzy sound that too many pedals get.

    I liked the Funkbox...a lot. Wish I hadn't sold it - I'd like to give it another shot.

    Do you have a link to the review you could post?

    I have a Solidgoldfx Funkzilla filter and the beta pedal.

    Both pedals sound good and the quality is top notch. Seem to built like a tank but not as heavy.

    One of the coolest things about the Funkzilla is that it dosen't lose the low end.
