New Pedals Inbound: EHX Key 9 and Zvex Mastotron
Few small changes to the board. The WMD Geiger Counter Civilian Issue is finally coming off. Awesome little pedal. So many cool unique sounds, but just not necessary for me. I was using it mainly for a bitcrushing effect, which I now get on the Strymon Mobius by using the Destroyer Algorithm! I have also removed the Fuzzrocious Rat Tail. Great Rat distortion clone, but it was a bit too big for a sound I don't use too often. So I replaced my gated fuzz setting on the Source Audio OFD with a Rat setting. So now the OFD is for light tube drive and a Rat distortion. I put the Zvex Mastotron back on my board to recover the gated fuzz sound I lost on the OFD. I forgot how much I liked the sound of the Mastotron. The other newcomer to the board is the Electro Harmoniz Key 9 keyboard emulation pedal. This does a decent job at emulating Rhodes, Organ, and Mallet sounds. Do be honest it works much better on guitar than bass, but up in the higher registers of my six string Dingwall ABZ, I've found some fun and usable sounds with it. We'll see how long this arrangement lasts!
