BugBrand BugCrusher

Post by Muff Wiggler » Mon Apr 21, 2008 4:40 pm

Also really wanted one of these cool looking analog sample rate reducers.... (I have an ICONsWeevil and love it to biits), but they sell out like INSTANTLY and it's never been the right time

anyway - thank god once again for INSTANT email delivery to my pocket 24/7 - just got the email from Tom, new run released NOW - 12 BugCrusherMicro's and 8 of the monster new BugCrusher08's just dropped.

I instantly got my order in for a Micro, which is the one I've wanted the most of all the Bugcrushers all along...

looking forward to it. This one is just as happy working with modulars as it is working with guitars. should be really fun 8)

Yay!

I have the bigger desktop version, but you're going to love it. For some reason the big chicken head knob on a crusher is gratifying.

I love those icon weevils. I hope he makes something like them again some day. The newer weevils have moved to pragmatic designs, which are good, but I still miss the rococo flare of the old ones.

Awesome! I saw this bugger today and was very intrigued. Can't wait to hear your thoughts and maybe some clips.

Right now, I'm trying to limit my pedals to ones that I can build myself. Unfortunately, thus far, I'm not so good at it.

Oooh-- BugBrand gear has always been on my list for things to buy when I find buried treasure. The designs are great and the interfaces always look awesome.

I know, I've been jealous of your desktopCrusher big time :oops: Really glad I got one of these micros, I was drooling when the first run was announced/sold back in December. For me this design is perfect since I don't have to mess with gain trimmers, and have lots of filters sitting all around it anyway - and yep, I love the big ol' Chickenhead knob 8)

Totally agreed about the flair of the old weevils - to be honest that is/was at least half the appeal with them for me. The more functional designs are probably better for a lot of people, but it was this merger of function and art in the early weevils that really grabbed my attention and (I felt) made Tom's stuff stand out from the rest of the squarewave/555IC crowd out there

Yeah I was reading your blog, some bad luck, no?

It'll pass - stick with it 8)

I agree. It's what originally got my attention, too. I get the feeling as he moves toward a more standardized manufacturing method that the visually fanciful stuff will be less likely to return.
