    Good ol' Jeorge is finally releasing a Camel Toe reissue.

    I'll be first in line for one, one of my dream pedals as I love his stuff.

    I think it's beneficial. Red Llamas can be kind of bright into the wrong rig.

    I'm not seeing any info about it. Where'd you see it confirmed? Is there a MSRP/Street price? Any more info?

    I probably wouldn't buy it if it is much more than $150 USD. Considering that I know I don't have to spend more than that buying the pedals separately.

    No release date, just on Jeorge Tripps instagram page. I figured with a pic it is definitely happening.

    I know the Rhino is a TS, but the Llama.... I've heard it described as a "fuzzy overdrive".... does that make it sound similar to the Keeley Fuzzhead? Axis29???

    Not sure on the Keeley, but Llama is fuzzy with the gain turned way up, but with gain at 1/2 or less adds a tweedy tone, good way to get a good tweed base tone from a clean amp. Run the Rhino into that for killer higher gain OD sound.

    While I am perfectly happy with my 2 current drives- the Blue Note for lower gain stuff and the Flux Drive for higher gain stuff, as well as a BOG for fuzz.... I will have to buy this pedal and see if it can function as a "jack of all trades"... that would be handy... 2 pedals instead of 3, only 1 power supply needed.

    Altho I wouldn't sell the Blue Note, EVER. That's my 2nd favorite OD of all time.

    I believe the Llama is based on the Anderton Tube Sound Fuzz, is it not?

    It is, but I know even less about THAT pedal than I do the Red Llama :lol:

    Ruger - honestly, it sounds and responds very much like a good, small Tweed amp with the Tone and Volume dimed, to me. Roll back and you get full, chimey, but not piercing, harmonic cleans (unless you have one of those treble bleeds). Roll up and you get fuzzy, gritty, bright, heavy overdrive. Not fuzz like a fuzz pedal (my opinion) but like the kind of "fuzzy" overdrive/distortion an old, tube-rectified amp can make when it's giving everything it's got.

    The smaller box is certainly welcomed. I'd be a buyer at the right price.

    How do you figure? The WH Rhino Mk IV is ~$130 and the Way Huge WHE203 Red Llama is ~$120, for a total of $250. If you mean used, it's only fair to state that you'd wait to buy it used. If it's even close to $250, it'd be a bargain, as it frees up a spot on the pedal board, and allows you to reroute Llama into Rhino and Rhino into Llama with the flip of a switch.

    I should say I have already spent that much chasing that combo. And yes my Red Llama cost $75. It doesn't look like the camel toe would take up much less space, just one less power supply.
    To be clear, I have always wanted this pedal, but I'm not going to rush out to spend the same amount of money I've already spent to get a sound I already have.
