jealous. I really wanted one but I guess I'll have to wait for the next run.
I mean this in the best possible way...but fuck you, man. Literally, a ton of people were in the midst of checking out, and the pedals instantly sold out. PayPal was clearing my payment, glitched, and then booted me back to an empty cart. A ton of other folks reported the same thing happening to them. The fact that they sold out in like 30 seconds or less? Yeah...right... There is no way there were 100 of them. Some real bullshit behind that one.
Next run will be in late May or June. So, not too far off.
It's a smart pedal design though. You take the transparent boost/drive and then use the second knob to add in as much of the "maxed out EQ setting" as you'd like to color your tone, but it's less buzzy, less greasy, and a bit less unbearably harsh than an original MIJ HM-2.
Using a classic HM-2 as an ever so slight tool (with the gain of the pedal itself set at zero while using the EQ knobs of the pedal to shape in some additional color) is a nice, little trick for getting the tone of any heavy bands that Kurt has recorded, getting that Knocked Loose guitar tone, or even getting a more aggressive tone for modern, noisy hardcore music. This Evil Ned pedal just condenses it all down into one, tiny stompbox.
For someone dissatisfied with plugins trying to basically nail these exact sounds (Ballou/GodCity sounds, KL/modern hardcore, noise/grindcore/powerviolence/etc) and not looking to spend a ton, where should I start? This is the HM2 thread after all
TC Electronic Eyemaster Metal Distortion? Behringer HM300?
Anyone get in on the first run of Angry Swedes from Decibelics?
just grab an hm300, they're like 30$. They more than do the classic swedish tone if you want that, and if you spend some time tweaking you can get more modern hm2 sounds.
Definitely recommend the Behringer for $30 or TC EyeMaster for $60.
To me, they sound about the same. 1 is built like a tank, the other is $30...
They're both great at doing the swedish chainsaw sound, but the hm300 is a bit better suited to getting other sounds since you can actually dial in a different sound beside DIME EVERYTHANG.
I did.. Anxiously waiting..
Congrats, expect nothing but awesomeness! Guillem is very passionate about his pedals and does an outstanding job. I have one of three prototypes and it really kicks ass and sounds identical!
The Evil Ned has arrived!
This thing is pretty awesome. I'm loving how it sounds against an already gained up amp, and going into a clean amp is almost as good, honestly. I like that they changed it from a fuzzy type of distortion to a more neutral overdrive. The EQ curve is what you'd expect, but a little more clear (possibly because of the change in gain type).
Here's a quick demo I made using an older riff I wrote to test out the Eyemaster. The rig is my Strandy OS7 -> Pedalboard (only Evil Ned and NS-2 on) -> Mesa Roadster (Ch. 2 set to Fat) -> Mesa 2x12, all picked up with a sliiiiiightly off-axis 57.
Man this thread is giving me the GAS of these type of pedal. My Ceres is still doing well but i wonder if i can get an extra amount of grit via a Chainsaw boost.
The Angry Swede arrived a few days ago and it’s incredible! Sooo quiet like it has a built in noise gate. Highly recommended!
..and my recently completed Slaughter of the Soul rig.
The new Dunwich modified heavy metal arrived with me recently! It's absolutely killer - I love the max switch and adjustable levels for main/max .
Sounds mean!!! Absolutely off topic, but don't suppose you could tell me how the Mesa preamp sounds fed into the Model T return, compared to itself? I've been wondering about the viability of just owning a doomy head but running modern pres into its loop.
Giving me gas for that Supreme 160. Now that i own a vh140c i want to know how the 2 compare
The Supreme 160 was the last and newest puzzle piece for this rig.. It is heavy and loud as hell!! I am currently tweaking knobs and EQ trying to find the Slaughter magic..
fuck I don't need any more Hm2 type pedals but this seems pretty cool
Got an Angry Swede. Dead quiet when it’s on. I haven’t tried it with all knobs on 10 yet so i won’t comment on that sound.
But as a boost (gain at zero), I greatly prefer the Behringner HM300.
I'm not seeing the 10" speakers mixed into that cab.
Man, everything on their site is sold out...even hoodies!
Abominable builds pedals in batches and only makes like 3 different models with something like 15 of each at a time. The last release was like 2-3 weeks ago and he posted something about big changes coming soon and hasn't posted new stock since then. I used to check the site a lot to see what would pop up, but I got the pedals I was looking for and haven't checked much since.
