my friend has an original mutron iii. Great condition, a few scratches, no power chord but otherwise in perfect condition. He wants 500 for it. I'm tempted to get it because they are so rare. Thoughts on how much these originals normally run?
they actually pop up fairly frequently. if you're in the market a few years down the line, i have no doubt you'd be able to find one, though it might take a couple months of keeping your eyes peeled on ebay and CL and forums and such.bazza411 wrote:Thanks...just so hard to spend that much on a pedal especially when I am not that good a soloist yet..but I may never come across one again....ugh...decisions decisions...
i agree with 98% of this statement, the only thing i would change is that, you will sound like you with a really really good envelope filter in your chain. IF you can tame it!seamones wrote:I'd also say keep in mind that this pedal will not make you sound like Garcia, it will make you sound like you with a envelope filter in your chain.
The Guyatone is a really simple effect, it's got a knob for sweep threshold and one for decay. It's pretty much impossible to make it sound bad, it's a great sounding effect that is very simple. That's what I like about it. It's under a hundred bucks. You can get a QTron for around one fifty, which can do what a Mutron can do. But if you love the sound of a Mutron, and you have a Mutron, and you're getting a sweet tone out of it, then it sounds like you've answered your own questions already!bazza411 wrote:Wait...so you think the Guyatone WR-3, can produce the same sound as the mutron iii ? I absolutely love the sound of the mutron..but if I can get something that I can't tell the difference on that would be great. I have no idea if the mutron I have needs to be recalibrated..it works awesome and I am getting a sweet tone out of it. I'm not a gear head so I can't tell if calibration is required or not.
