    Nobody seems to have them in stock yet unless they inserted into their inventory database sometime this afternoon.

    It seems like an interesting fuzz but I wonder how different it really is from a Big Muff or other fuzzes I have laying around here.

    Reminds me of the Devi Ever Torn's Peaker, which is a really fun pedal.

    I wonder how it compares to the EHx Satisfaction fuzz...

    Dollars to doughnuts it's a 1:1 clone of something. The Earthquaker Dirt Transmitter had the same controls, so does the MXR variac.

    definitely the dirt transmitter, which is a silicon fuzz face with the fuller input pot, starve control, and big muff tone stack

    I used to have an Ibanez Tone Lok Fuzz that had a ripped speaker switch. It was a really cool sounding fuzz. I kind of regret getting rid of it.

    This is my guess, although I'm not sure what the logic is of making a clone of a pedal EQD felt wasn't profitable enough to keep in the line. Of course, EHX puts out enough off-the-wall pedals that disappear after a year or so, what's one more?

    if eqd didn't discontinue stuff then half their output would be fuzz face variants ... js

    What effect pedal isn't a clone of something else? There hasn't been any real innovation in effects since before I was born. They just get more expensive.

    The half that isn't Big Muff variants, anyway.

    Dunno how old you are, but there've been some cool new pedals in the last decade or so.

    ...and a ton of TS and Big Muff clones, of course.

    there's a ton of cool pedals out there. Some people are fools and don't look beyond the mass produced garbage that's either a tube screamer or another done to death circuit.

    Anything made by Montreal assembly, Dr scientist, chase bliss, death by audio. Plandask eletrik is fantastic stuff,holy island audio, and recovery effects makes great boxes.

    What specific pedal isn't a rehash of a 50 year old effect?

    I skimmed a sweetwater video, Guitar synthesizer isn't new, even if they tack a reverb into the box.

    the count to five or the PLL style circuit didn't exist 50 years ago. Didn't even exist in the 90s either. The chips a lot of the reverb and delay pedals aren't spring or plate based. The chips weren't designed in some of these pedals well into the 2000s.

    All of this and is easily found on Google.

    So, new chips in the same old delay and reverb effect. Boring. I care about the sounds not the engineering inside the box.

    You seem to have your mind made up. Fair enough, enjoy.
