    Hi All!
    I saw this pedal and like the looks of it.
    Is it any good?
    I'd greatly appreciate any and all info on it.

    The look of a pedal has zero influence on how it sounds. Close your eyes, plug it in and listen

    I like the clips I heard but it seems hard to get.

  4. It is hard to get, it was discontinued long ago. @DrewM85 just sold his, he knows a lot about it, and is best suited to answer the question. What I know about it is only second hand, that it is a variation on the TAFM but with less controllable options. IMO/IME everything that ss/bs makes sounds amazing though, so I wouldn't hesitate to buy one if you can find it.

    It's a silicon fuzz face clone with the fuzz gain permanently set to max. Also has a built in overdrive that can be switched pre or post fuzz. The three way switch changes the EQ response, basically changes the treble content. And the last switch changes the overdrive gain.

    I had one and loved what it did, but I just didn't need what it did.

    I have this thing for high-gain, brutal dirt pedals, but they're more of an indulgence for me than a necessity. Having said all that, I remember the Hawk being very sharp and cutting, not warm and round. I also remember some low-end loss, but nothing major; nothing some clean blend couldn't fix.
