    Currently have had my 105Q for approaching 10 years. A Geezer just popped up in my local classifieds though. Is it worth upgrading? I would be running it with distortion so is there really that big of a difference?

    I like that the Geezer affects the midrange more so than the low end like the 105Q but I wish it were possible to adjust the overall volume of the GZR like you can on the 105Q.

    Ive currently got an ehx cockfight plus which has a lows control and a volume knob. The main thing i dont like about it is the activate switch, so whenever you switch it on you are already toe down on the most extreme setting. Cant make a graceful entrance hah. Ive managed to avoid the issue by having it always on and using switcher presets to engage when i need to and can now start heel down. I do like it though, and the fuzz circuit is a very cool addition, but id love a geezer.

    I wonder if it boosts the volume a bunch, don’t exactly want that.

    The GZR doesn't have the volume boost like the 105Q does. I just prefer having that extra volume but the GZR is no joke. I own it, don't use it a whole lot but it sits so great in a mix. Shines in a solo situation too.
