imho, At this point they really seriously need to put up some clips of this thing sounding like Jerry playing through a MuTronIII.
To my ear, and with all due respect... None of those clips sound like our beloved MuTronIII Garcia "blurp".
With that said, espessially with this type of effect... It's all in the hands, and it's all in the "intent".
I totally agree and I think thats why a lot of guitarists don't like them compared to a wha. You have to learn how to use it right. I would also add the tone of the guitar, amp and the volume have large factors on its tone as well as the above quote. Since using it through my Gdec and the many voices that amp has, it is quite apparent amp tone has a lot to do with the outcome from the speaker. This realization has allowed me to look at the filter in a different way than I had been. My last gig I tried lowering my rig volume and boosted the mic volume to a better tone overall, but it is a little harder to hear in the stage mix, but monitors can help there too. It wasn't a huge amount, just a couple hairs off the volume helps a lot for me with peaks/distortion. Plus the addition of a EQ really makes the pedal more versatile, and confusing at the same time.
I give them props for ease of use, but a Qtron+ is a fantastic envelope filter for the money and half the price. It does the Jerry thing very well. I would consider a Hartman though if I was in the market, I almost got a discombobulator, which are relative in price. I have to admit, sometimes I wish there were more parameters to change when dialing in to get a certain amp, guitar and volume to work well, its a very ticky animal.
Finally finished our new site...
