Clearly you have not caught on to UA's business model yet.When the price of a single pedal is almost a full FX gigable unit... I wonder who are the suckers that still fall for this... No I dont believe it sounds better or even that it will be much better than what an Helix Stomp will mimic.
You misspelled "cork-sniffing distillation" so I fixed it for ya.A) That's not actually out of line with what other companies are charging. Too rich for my blood, but UA is a top company. Strymon charges around that. If $399 for a premium brand's pedal seems high, you haven't been following the modern pedal market at all. :lol:

AcckkkkkkktualllllllllllyyyyyIf Mesa was asking $399 we all know half this site would be clamoring with, "WHAT A DEAL, STEAL OF THE CENTURY, FROM SUCH A RESPECTED COMPANY WITH A STORIED HISTORY. SUCH A LOW PRICE IS BASICALLY SAINT LIKE CHARITY. GET THE FUCKING POPE ON THE PHONE RIGHT NOW. WE ARE FLYING TO VATICAN CITY WITH THIS.".

I mean, the UA Ox is in every YouTuber/cork-sniffer video on top of the mandatory stack of amps in the background these days. Seems like they've got the marketing all figured out.Yeah, most of us know who UA is - it's hard to be involved in any sort of recording without at least having heard of them - and, to my knowledge, this is their first foray into guitar stuff.
It just seems like a "hey, we're not in the market, let's pile on!" move.
"This Mesa is worth what they are asking because they are a reputable brand with an unmatched reputation, unlike Gibson!" - Every Mesa Fanboy here up until last week
QFT.Don't hate the player, hate the game. Guitarists are gullible fucking idiots who are a step away from literally believing magic exists when it comes to electronics. This is why 400 types of Tubescreamer exist, and why people will pay £250 for a capacitor from the 50's when a Chinese-made £0.05p cap is infinitely better.
So long as cork-sniffing morons exist, companies like UA will offer pretty unremarkable stuff with questionable marketing language at hyper-inflated prices. I ain't even mad.
