Ivan you'll be surprised how good they are, and they're geared towards gigging musicians, extremely tough build, they have a guard you can put over the knobs so you don't accidentally knock your settings off...plus they are all true bypass and work as 18v internally even though they take 9v...I only have the delay right but I'm definitely getting the metal pedal when I have more cash, it's the best sounding metal pedal I've ever heard, I own the metal muff and it sucks compared to the TL2, and i will also buy the tuner. They teamed up with lexicon for a few of the pedals, the reverb and I believe the delay so you know they sound good.

Yeah they sound pretty good on the samples on the site that's for sure.

And 18V? These things must weigh ton if they've got the transformer circuitry (which requires DC-AC -> AC-DC conversion circuits also) and a metal chasis. Transformers are expensive parts (probably the most $$$ in a tube amp are the two transformers), how much are these pedals?

They look so similar like boss pedals that metal pedal and the chromatic tuner are almost thesame, maybe they are making copies with some new technology?

Just by looking at the specs, it's 25% heavier than the metalzone, but 50% lighter than my line 6...so I don't know that's going on haha

Again, I'm not picky on how much it weighs, but I'm just trying to decipher what's inside.

Woah that's sort of insulting to be honest. Atleast try one of them before you say something like that. I haven't enjoyed a single boss pedal ever since they make everyone sound exactly the same. I don't know how boss got so big, but all the boss gear i've tried has just sucked up all my tone and taken away all my personality and especially the essence of how my guitar sounds. But ofcourse, in music everything is personal.

These new digitech pedals seems to be unbeatable as far as sound per dollar goes. Atleast to my ears.

I just picked up the Tube Overdrive CM-2

$99 us.

Gonna try it with a clone Marshall JCM800 50 watt head. Overdriving the already distorted amp like Wilska did.

I hope I have similar results as Wilska. I picked up a TS-9 to try too. Guitar Center will take em back if I'm not happy.

Wilska, you still happy with yours?

Anyone else tried these yet? They've been out a while now.

Hey Jer, hope you'll like it!
I'm still very very happy with mine, it's pretty darn versatile for a overdrive pedal. TS-9s are nice but have less versatility and also I have very high output guitar that's another reason I went for the CM-2

Well, last night went like this.

TS-9 vs CM-2 vs Boss SD-1 with mod

Boss SD-1 wins in my opinion.

The TS-9 had a bit too much fuzz for me. It was 2nd place.

The Digitech Hardwire CM-2 took it too far from tube tone. Made it more solid state. Too modern. I really liked the articulation I was hearing with the other 2. The Boss had a bit more brightness to it. It wasnt as "vintage" sounding.

The digitech sounded good from a "distortion" standpoint. And its built VERY well. It just took a bit too much from the sound of the amp.

Interesting. What was the mod on the SD-1? I'm was sort of looking for a more modern sound because i'm pretty young and don't want to sound like the "old farts" so to speak, but i'm still curious what that mod is.

I've been thinking about trading in my EHX Metal Muff for the TL-2 for a while now. My Metal Muff is good, but its not giving me the sound I want. I heard that the TL-2 on Loose has that bassy, fuzzy kind of sound i desire. Has anybody tried it yet? I haven't had time to cruise the stores for one yet.

I didn't have time to try it when I was at the store, but I want to so I will try it next time if I can. Though I really like the tight setting on it from what I heard from videos.
