I grabbed one of his KWB-inspired pedals he built for that charity sale a while back. Can vouch for his skills. That pedal rules. Excellent build quality.

Speaking of speaking of (speaking of) Rats, I've wanted to try one of his Black Box's for a while.
The KWB Distorter is probably the last version of that corner of circuit design that anyone would ever need to buy. I love mine. Our lord Torlex is even on the face of it.

Also curious about his take one the Rat.
I've been using the KWB on synth a lot lately. Rules.

I actually put mine in front of the amp while reamping some M-Tron "String" parts.

It was certainly a sound you would not forget that you had heard.

BK Butler Tube Driver (incorrectly called a "Blue Tube" in another thread) has been great for me for the past 20 years or so.

We had one of those at my old place. I forgot about them.

I got my Soul Food pedal on Friday and used it on a session Saturday. I got a really nice driven, present sound with a Tele and the AC15.

Nothing to pardon, the acronym smacks of insider pretentiousness.

The PRF is the (somewhat) ironically titled 'Premiere Rock Forum', the message board over at Steve Albini's place. It's temporarily down.

It tends to be a little funnier, but sometimes a little more highfalutin than this island of good will. Their tech room is heavier on guitar/bass/amp discussions, but some good recording tech talk from time to time. Their main page has long debates about everything from Scotch whiskey, to comedic pornography film titles, to which Jesus Lizard album is the most essential.

There are some really cool/smart people over there and of course a few blowhards.
