Earlier this week, Mad Professor announced a limited run of pedals: custom modded versions of three of their popular pedals. [Ed: they’ve added a fourth one since]. It was right at the end of the month, I had a bit of cash spare, so I ordered one the same day.Continue reading “#CoffeeAndKlon 27: The Big Tweedy Drive With Super Tweed Mod”

This will be the last regular “New Arrivals” for the time being.
Partly thanks to the UK Government following scientific advice that was based on an outdated model of the wrong disease, Britain has failed to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus before it became widespread. We’re heading for a lengthy social lockdown (at best), with the serious economic hardship that inevitably follows.

Will the Golden Brownie follow the trend? Here’s my first impressions of it.Continue reading “First Impressions: Xvive Golden Brownie Distortion Pedal”

Last month, I pre-ordered both the Wild Fro and Durple pedals. They arrived earlier this morning (along with the Abasi Pathos, which I’ll cover in a separate blog post).
I’ve had an hour or so with the pedals so far. Here’s my first impressions.Continue reading “First Impressions: Tone City Wild Fro and Durple Pedals”

Good morning! If you’re here in the UK, I hope the terrible election result and biblical rain hasn’t dampened your weekend completely. I’ve got another #CoffeeAndKlon for you this morning, and I want to talk about the *other* graphic on the KTR today.Continue reading “#CoffeeAndKlon 24: The Klon’s Buffer”
