    jrrshop sells a pedal line called tone bakery. have not been able to find anything about it in the interwebs. they have a tap tempo analog delay that is not a bad price (and tap tempo in analog delays are not very common). so I'm curious if anyone knows about this brand? Is it exclusive to jrrshop, if so, who makes them? I don't recognize the pedals (i.e., they don't look like joyo, biyang, etc.).

    EDIT: I must have wishfully thought the pedal is analog, but there is no such indication. So I don't know if it is analog or digital.

    Well, are they going to cover the circuit boards with poop so nobody can steal their circuits?

    Tone Bakery Mocha Drive ($99) describes itself as "...obsessive compulsive design..." Sure looks like it, too. Just another knock-off. Have to assume the rest of their line is other not-so-cheap copies. Freakish, isn't it?

    At least they're hinting if that's what they're doing, basing it off the OCD.

    They hadn't thought of it. I'll pass it on.

    They won't. First up is a modified TS called the Kennelizer.
    It will be 300.00. Can you imagine all the dog toys this will buy?

    I won't buy a TS Ripoff unless it costs $350 AND has a swirly paint job.

    Gentlemen,

    It will be so easy to over charge, and act like
    an arse. In fact, it will require no effort at all.
    And in addition to that and the swirly paint jobs,
    I'll be sure to make sure the construction is shoddy
    too. It's the latest rage.

    Of course, what else could a pack of dogs do?

    Hey guys!
    So, I actually demoed these pedals! I met the creator. A Guy name Eric and he was a very nice guy.

    I went in to JRR music shop where they make these Tone Bakery pedals in Garden Grove, CA to buy a new Earthquaker rainbow Machine and wondered what was on the pedal board in the store. He told me about the Mocha, Key Lime and Dulce pedals and I got to test em out.

    The Mocha Drive smoked the OCD. Had more gain on tap. The Mid boost switch on the Mocha didnt cause the transparency to be sacrificed when i cranked the gain unlike the OCD. The Mocha also seemed more harmonicly colorful. I ended up buying the puppy.

    The Dulce was warm and didnt sound muffled at all. equally as good as the AD9 but the Dulce had tap tempo! Bought that too! lol

    Both are now on my board. Replaced my Earthquaker White Light and my Ibanez AD9

    Quality stuff guys.

    The maker Eric told me that his reason for the pricing was that he enjoyed doing it and he really wanted to give guys some real bang for the buck.

    Order one and tell me im wrong after you play it. I dare you

    Btw. I tried the Key Lime Compressor and it smoked my Keely 2 Knob and the way Eric built the Key Lime allows it to act as an OD when you max the Attack! So Freaking Cool! I almost bought that too lol but didnt have cash on hand! :p

    When i asked him how he did it he replied with a laugh, "I did it by Accident!" lol

    MiniBeck, that is all great, but since this is your first post in the forum, too, can you verify that there's no conflict of interest in what you're saying?

    Definitely smells like a funny one... give him the benefit of a doubt though. I'm sure he's a nice guy...

    They could make a twin circuit fuzz and call it " Muffin Top / Muffin Stump."

    Hi Eric! :lol:

    Seriously though dude, if you're going to push your own pedals (or are a friend of the builder) be honest about it because the "fake enthusiastic customer" thing is completely transparent. Btw specifically saying your pedal 1-ups other famous boutique builders is just poor marketing and comes off as cheap.

    Tukk04. I dont appreciate the condescension. Be a grown up like the other people in the forum. Ive never been in a forum and only looked it up in the first place to to do my homework before i pulled the trigger on my purchase.
    After all you are just some dude that obviously spends more time in online forums than in studios or live performance venues. also, The OCD was Boutique 2 versions ago. Now its just a standard priced overdrive you can get for $80 on Craigslight
    If i wanted a boutique OD id have bought an Earthquaker.

    To Koko, Will and Eddie, :)
    I will def post a video of the the pedals and link it to you guys once im off the road!
    Something also noticed about the mocha vs. the OCD was that the OCD's Level control didnt seem to quite have an audio taper and the mocha actual rolls on evenly from 1 to 10.

    Final note- To those of you looking to blow smoke about someone being a bot or advertiser for the company please save it. This forum is for people who want to share their OPINION about topics. I shared mine. You want to gather your own buy the pedal and then talk **** like they did before internet.

    The pedals i have are awesome.
