    I have a Suncoast B1p overdrive pedal that has 26V peak to peak dynamic headroom. It's so touch sensitive, you can blow on a string to get a note to sound.

  3. Without a doubt the most touch sensitive envelope filters are the Frostwave Funk-a-Duck and the Chunk Systems Agent 00Funk MkII. Just the teensiest touch to one control and you get a completely different sound. Both awesome pedals though
  4. One reason why I like my Darkglass Alpha Omega so much is because of its’ touch sensitivity.
    Much more so than any cmos overdrive I’ve ever tried.

    Prunes and Custard seems pretty touch sensitive (from videos anyways)
    Nunovsky and ProfFrink like this.

    I heard that as well. Are they still being made?
    I did not find a website when I looked for one earlier today...?

    Crowther Audio | Home of the Hotcake, Double Hotcake, and the Prunes & Custard Guitar Pedals

    They are, and they are available on Reverb. Occasionally one pops up used, like this one from last week's TB classifieds which is mine mine mine now.

    There's also the Malekko Downer which seems to sound similar, but I don't know if the effect is quite as pronounced. The Downer as a ton more features, including expression pedal control of everything, and seems to sell for about the same price.

    I went for the P&C because I wanted it longer. I don't know how useful it is, but it's fun as hell.

    Analogman Sunface 275 NKT is ridiculously touch sensitive. I assume the Arbiter Fuzz Face after which it is modeled is also super touch-sensitive, but for $1,500, I am not about to find out.

    Fulltone OCD v1.4 is also quite touch sensitive.

    Moog MF-101 - both thr ddrive and the filter are touch sensitive and adjustable. The whole moogerfooger line has touch sensitive drive.


    Iron Ether Subterranea is surprisingly responsive to touch, and changes in character from it. Iron Ether Xerograph deluxe can also be really touch responsive.

    A bunch of synth pedals are touchy where they require a refined technique to play consistently. EHX Bass Microsynth and related comes to mind.

    Brassmaster and its clones.
