    $90?!

    Is this the bomb it appears to be? Or are there 'other' options at the price point?
    It seems shafffordable .. does that imply its a jack of all trades master of none? Or is it a sleeper?

    I don’t think there’s anything available quite like that. At 90 bucks it seems like a real good deal.

    That's what I'm thinking. Got your Hendrix, Beck, Cream, Funk, Reggae, Dire S.. covered. In one pedal.
    There's got to be a catch. :)

    EHX usually do bonkers pedals, for a very reasonable price.

    I'm into the Lumberjack (£25 ) at the moment, it does clean boost or raspy. Or a blend of the two. Went for IMG_20200722_111127.jpg the Korg pitch black mini ( more accurate and takes CR2032 batteries, EHX tuner needs power supply )

    I'm a massive and unabashed proponent of the Soul Food (which I am about to hack 12 different combinations of LEDs and germanium diodes in to on a rotary switch lol). How does this bad boy stack up? I'm guessing its based on something "else" and not a klon?

    I did not. I watched a few other demos of it and did not really dig the "thickness" of the wah tone or its "digitality". That could just have been the fact that nobody on YouTube in 2020 seeems to know how to mic a guitar amp (despite having Royer mics) apparently..

    I'm waiting for one of you oil-rich schmucks to buy one first and report back!! :whistling:

    Just remember, the demonstrated sound may require additional effects.

    Other than that, GO FOR IT!

    had one. Sold it rather quickly. The "talkbox" is not great as in - in person it does not sound like Frampton Comes Alive.

    The fuzz is ... very basic fuzz.

    The wah is great, sounds like a clyde. Construction is all plastic, but doesn't seem flimsy.

    I sold it and went back to the good old Ibanez Weeping Demon. The instant on/off of that pedal is my favorite feature, it's NOT a good sounding wah, it just functions as I want. The CAWK FIGHT was a better sounding wah and the fuzz feature was cool if you're into that sort of thing.

    If I didn't own a wah at all and wanted one the BIGFATCAWKFIGHT would be my #1 choice. (I typed that hoping to get around the ooooh taboo words filter and also to be funny because after all... just LOOK at my picture!)

    My theory on just about everything is "cry once". No pun intended but I like the original Cry Baby..for the extra $ you get quality . 15963238882126821773666747247331.jpg
