Are the label-less pedals DIY kits? I recognize the Super Fucker Muff clone you once mentioned, not sure about the other two.

No. I just made 'em from scratch. The blue one is sort of based on the Orange Squeezer, but much more squeezie, and the silver one is a Rangemaster.

Does the new Stereo Memory Man sound anything like the Deluxe Memory Man?

From Gearwire :

"The Stereo Memory Man," Matthews says, "is digital, but it really has a wonderful warm analog sound. That's not hype," Matthews adds, "That's the truth."

hmmm

It sounds nothing whatsoever like a Deluxe. Neither does it have a "wonderful warm analog sound." The only kind of people that could think that are marketing hacks and people that don't own any analog gear. I am neither sort.

It is kind of its own thing. It really has no "sound" at all, to speak of. It spits out what you put in it, over and over again. The reverb part was a foolish addition if you ask me.

That said, it is a good digital delay pedal, with plenty of features; I really like the filter knob, and it loops like a champ. It is, in my considered opinion, well worth the money. But if you want a Deluxe, go buy one. Don't think you're gonna get a Deluxe with presets and looping if you get this pedal. It's a very different animal.

Hey Chris,

Did you run into any problems building your Rangemaster? I built one up a few months ago using an PNP germanium transistor. Using it with the power supply that feeds my other pedals wreaks all sorts of havoc ? which makes sense, since it is feeding voltage onto the ground wire of the other pedals.

I built it into a box with two other pedals, so I haven?t gotten round to fixing it yet, but I?m wondering if you went the NPN route with yours or if you reversed the circuit to make it negative ground using a PNP (which I?ve read you can do).

I did mine NPN because I hates batteries. Godlyke ftw.

Maestro Fuzz-Tone, the pre-Gibson version. I've been watching eBay for one for a while now.
