    I already have that problem with my modded mt2 lol, I keep telling myself I don't need the hm2 since I can get chainsaw sounds with the modded mt2..... It's not working, I still want an hm2.

    Seriously!
    I can't leave it alone lately. I've got to find a way to incorporate it into my core sound. Maybe have someone give it a momentary switch.

    I see why this pedal has a cult following now

    I finally tried out my hm300 tonight at jam, and it's glorious. I literally just swapped out my od pedal for the hm300 and left my amp as it was. As u can see in the pic I didn't go for the 'max all dials' setting, because that would be way too bassy and just noise. The way I have it set gives me an awesome coherent chainsaw sound. I really like it.

    That's about the setting I use with my HM-2. Definitely a fine setting for those Leatherface tonez.

    I got one of these today! Came about 3 weeks early.

    I only had about 10 minutes with it, so I need some quality time. My first thought was wow, this sounds like a$$, lol. Then I started thinking.... I have all these tight, tubescreamer type pedals, I don't have anything that turns my guitar into an instant fat fuzzsaw. I started playing with it some more, and was getting some cool fatter tones that I can never seem to get any other way with amps and OD pedals. I definitely think it will be fun over time, and when I get to try it in different combinations as a boost for other things. I also need to try to boost it with a tubescreamer.

    On the plus side, the plastic seems fairly sturdy. Knobs seem solid also. The hot pink box and case still looks funny as hell, lol. Reminds me of when I was a teenager, and my prized piece of gear was a DOD Thrashmaster pedal.

    I would suggest using a Blues Driver. It really keeps the fatness that a tube screamer would roll off.

    Nice score. Been wanting one of these just to fool around for an early Swede / late Kurt Ballou-ish kind of chainsaw tone.
