    Not the same thing.

    It has an on/off switch.

    Oh oh. Whatever you got, you probably should seek medical help.

    Have you taken your temperature today?

    It seems you guys are missing the point of this thread :)
    1) I don't own the pedal. Somehow there seems to be some assumptions made that I do
    2) I'm curious whether anyone has used one for guitar.

    One of my favorite fuzz pedals is technically a bass fuzz. I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to buy this if you just want to see your name on your pedalboard. Haha.

    I mean... it has a torch switch. Who can still pretend nowadays that a torch is ostentatious???

    I think no one would argue with you if you did, but I personally have not.

    I think you should get it anyway - I mean, who has a signature pedal and didn't know it?

    I've known about this pedal for years, I've always just been curious about it, and I've always wondered if it sounds decent with guitar. I mean it's not just my name here, I founded a band named The Blowtorches- that's where my handle here came from

    I'm not too crazy over it being 18v

    but it seems like some good guitar-based applications would be available- it seems pretty versatile

    Enroute.
    I kinda figured resistance was futile and it was inevitable, so what the heck
    I'd just been hoping someone had tried it with a guitar

    sub'd.
    I have a personal problem with too much 250hz. And my favorite amp has just a hint too much - I'm always looking for interesting ways to cut some and add a little juju.

    Please let us know what you think.

    Don't push the Torch button, it'll make Joan Crawford cry.
