Gear Wanker thread Mk II

It’s too much rat for me. I thought I wanted maximum rat, but I am out-ratted. None more rat.

I’ve ordered random bits and pieces a few times from various sellers and stuff usually turns up a little quicker than the delivery estimates, but yeah, the name could do with some work.

Have you tried emailing Moog directly? They’re a pretty small company all things considered, they hand-make all the gear, it’s employee owned and that, so I’d reckon there’s a decent chance they could help out or at least point you in the direction of somewhere that could…

I have left a message to their customer support yeah. Not had an answer (2 weeks now). They discontinued the Moogerfoogers ages ago too so :man_shrugging:t2:

Ah, bummer. Rando import website it is, then :frowning:

They’ve already shipped from AliExpress apparently :+1:



Do I need a compressor pedal for noodling on my guitar? That’s the question I keep asking myself when I’m hovering over an MXR Dyna comp purchase. Some videos of compressors leave me wondering what magic is going on, they can be subtle. I love Earth and Dylan Carlson’s playing and tone and he swears by a comp, says it transformed his playing. Do they level out your picking/strumming so much that if you like dynamics and a loud pluck followed by a quiet thumb strum that it all just blends into one level of playing? The sustain angle intrigues me but I get that when using my Fuzz War anyway so is it more for clean playing? I hear phrases like “notes bloom”, “sustain for days”, “levels up your chords” etc etc so could be worth a punt.
Who’s got one?

Not if you set the threshold, release, attack & ratio correctly (in that order …kind of)

The Dyna Comp only has 2 knobs - Output and Sensitivity - more limited but gets a very good rep. I wouldn’t be spending too much if I decide on a comp.

Like a classic LA 2A

I guess the ’sensitivity’ is an algorithmic combo of threshold & ratio (which possibly affects release time too), output will be the make up gain & I suppose you can find a threshold sweetspot depending on your input volume in comparison to the output

Ordered one of these yesterday from the latest batch



Tempted by this purely for that tone he gets at about 3:18. Id stick it before my drives I reckon, would be fun

Please recommend to me a decent looper pedal with seperate play/record and stop switches (ie 2 switches).

Would buy used. Doesnt need anything fancy apart from standard looping feature. Minimal budget.


digitech jamman 2 does

Turned up! I like it so far - have only played around for about 5 mins. So far I have liked setting to random which gives me some nice sped up / slowed down pitch shifted stabs to my loops , have the tone down to pull out the bass. Is filling out my sound quite nicely imo

Can highly recommend the MXR M303 Clone Looper. Relatively cheap, compact, separate record/play and stop switches and records at higher sample rates than most loopers so it sounds great. Has reverse and double/half speed if you want it, plus expression and extra footswitch input for separate control of those effects.

One on Reverb for £120 including postage at the moment:
