I just picked up one of these bad boys. I got the civilian issue and am going to try it out. If it isnt packing the same heat as the big boy i'm going to send it back and grab the big boy. The civy is supposed to be 32 of the best sounds from the big boy(it has 252 different wave tables and litterally thousands of possible settings, its actually overwelming and i'm really just looking for a little flavor and didnt want to delve THAT deply)
I'v been craving an industrial NIN type sound lately and i have basically no effects at all other than a DD-3.
These things sound fucking CRAZY and cover an amazing amount of ground. This pedal is really doing something different instead of rehashing a different effect or copying a existing pedal.
"The WMD Geiger Counter is hundreds of entirely new face melting sounds. A high gain modern preamp drives an 8 bit computer, creating sounds which range from nice (tubey overdrive, lofi aliasing, hot gated leads) to total madness (impossible amounts of gain, multiple octave foldover, harsh digital data errors, and piercing sculpted noise). This is NOT a modeling pedal, it turns the fundamentals of digital into a source of extreme distortion. "
Oh yea, it looks fucking badass too I'm totally going to run around the house with it and act like its a real geiger counter for a while after it comes in.
