Has anyone seen this new pedal or bought any others from this company?


It's built by "Funny Little Boxes," which I had never heard of before, but seems to be a pretty small, boutique pedal company making some cool stuff in limited quantities. Given all the time and money I've sunken into dialing in tones like McCready and Gossard on Ten, I'm pretty excited to give this whirl. I was in queue 3 according to the site, but already got my invoice yesterday, so I'll hopefully have one in a few weeks.

Aside from the obvious benefit of getting closer to the Pearl Jam tone I love with less in the signal chain up front, I'm looking forward to having a drive that will sound at least a little different from all the other players out there and isn't widely available like Tube screamers and Klons.

$220 shipped CAD. Ouch. Although I paid that for my Mile End Effects - Ronald Preamp 150 (Roland Space Echo preamp clone) and it came from Montreal.

And the 1991 isn't likely to earn the builder a cease and desist order like the Ronald did for Mile End.

Cool idea for a pedal, tryin nail a particular album tone. Huge pj fan. But the demo is not impressive tbh. Pretty sure one can nail that tone by running a ts9 into front on a marshall, I think stone and mike used this setup on Ten

I agree about the TS9 into Marshall; I think that's exactly what they did on most of the tracks on Ten. I've come close with Horizon Precision Drive into Friedman, but I'm seriously considering downsizing my rig and I feel like this will be some insurance for preserving the tone of the stuff I play most.

Sounds great! I think you can nail that tone if you try to mix 2 different sounding drive pedals in parallel with each other. Maybe something more distorted like a RAT with more of an overdrive like maybe a Klon circuit.

I should probably receive the pedal sometime before Thanksgiving. Once it arrives I'll try to post some sound comparisons between this pedal alone into the clean channel of my amp vs. drive pedal into the amp's dirty channel trying to produce the same tones.
