One of the pedals I lusted after when I first got started, back before 4ms and WMD chose to focus on synths. I've got a DIY swash permanently stuck in oscillation mode. It's probably going to work its way back into a tabletop noise setup.

For all the shit Strymon get, I haven't heard better plate/hall/choral reverbs than what these guys make.

$699 usd!

That’s taking the piss now. $1200-1500 NZD

I mean, I like reverb and I get they’d need to put two chops in there to get true spillover (a la Ventris) but that’s eye watering.

Yeah does make the Ventris seem like a bargain.

I'm kinda tired of the characterisation of women as killjoys of men's hobbies, if I'm honest. Saw an ad for a bike today that said something like "don't let your wife see you looking at me." Please. :roll:

Its certainly a trope, but for plenty of men its actually a thing, women tend to not have hobbies or seek the type of connection that men do thru their hobbies and clubs, and this creates friction, on a semi related theme you should listen to the Louis Theroux podcast with Germaine Greer, she has a bit to say on this subject.

The real issue here is the setting of unrealistic expectations. There’s no way someone that hot is going anywhere near someone that “collects” an SF300.
