Why don't you just buy a MuTron III ???
I might do that. I`m just hesitant to spend $500 if I can get the same sound for half that. I have a Q-tron +. I can get it close and it sounds pretty good. But it`s still a bit different to my ear.
I went a few rounds on this issue myself, and had my best non MuTron luck with the Emma, but in the end, the show-stopper for me was, Jerry used a MuTron III unwaveringly from the day he got it to the end. Every time I saw Jerry he had a MuIII... it was really starting to bug me.
I used to think they were hard to find, too expensive, some say "a hassle to work with" or "every one sounds different", but I finally said fuck it and bought a pristine looking and seemingly sounding orignal one that I happened upon in a music store in Seaside, Oregon one day.
I then bought a pristine looking one off Ebay that was sold As-Is "Does Not Work". It arrived and did not work but looked brand new. I have since sent a few Mu pedals to http://www.lsound.com/ and they come back working "as originally advertised" to my ear.
I now have one un modded original (with a new power supply), and one that has had component rehab, True-Bypass, Remove Gain stage from effect-off position, effect-on led(blue).
Needless to say, I happily have about a Grand tied up in MuIII's alone.
Just watch Ebay for one that calls out to you!
I put it all on a credit card!!!
