Not even the usual Pete Thorn or Brett Kingman demos sound overly exciting…just a personal thing I guess but I was very underwhelmed by them.
Didn’t love them. And I love me some Bogner. They were decent, but if you wanted a Bogner OD the Ecstasy blue or red does a better job IMHO. The compressor was nice though, felt great to play through.

I had the ecstasy red when it first came out, was pretty cool, kind of why I got excited about these ones…

If they ever work out how to box a Shiva OD up I’ll be first in queue. Cause 50kgs of amp is a lot of lug for that 18 seconds of glorious every 3rd song...

This is interesting. If it sounds and good. That's a lot of processing power you're asking from one pedal.

The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking Lego.

Far from new, but should be celebrated!

Part of fuzz faces' excellent tone comes from their huge casing ;-)

I’m double caked, to be honest I only ever use one. Looks cool on the board though.

Would like a single hot cake again, I think getting the dhc was the beginning of the end of the hotcake being my go to pedal. Never clicked with it the way I thought I would.

I reckon hotcakes are a real love hate thing, I never liked them, owned a couple, I swear they made weird noises, but others love them to pieces.

I heard someone else’s recording in a studio the other day, had a wicked drive tone, asked what it was…a deluxe reverb and a hotcake…crazy!

Not sure how epic it is, but I got a Tumnus deluxe a couple weeks back, my first klon clone ever, and I actually really like it, very useable EQ, and the buffer circuit does great things for my other pedals…
