    if you watch the god city vid. they show that the hm300 is noisier. I own an hm2 and hm300, so I can confirm the vid is accurate in that regard. It's a very noisy pedal but it apes the hm2 sound really damn well for only costing like 20$

    The boss Europe Instagram page just posted a teaser video prominently featuring a space echo and the HM-2 saying "new gear announced june 13th"

    I'm all in for a genuine HM-2. I'm curious what the "Waza switch" will do to the tone though. Will it give more Swedish or less Swedish? :lol:

    If it's made with original MIJ specs I'm in. Otherwise my MIT is still going strong.

    Doubt it.

    I’m surprised boss hasn’t tried the whole pedal preamp and poweramp thing yet.

    It's probably not. Boss had another drive unit pretty much exactly like this, the OD-20. That also had an HM-2 on it, and it was NOTHING like a real HM-2. Maybe they fixed it in this version, but I'm dubious from their previous efforts

    Anybody have input on the Throat Locust? I’m in desperate need of more chainsaw, but hate high noise floors and don’t want to add extra gates to my board. I really liked the Angry Swede for that reason, and because it seemed to nail the HM-2 tone, but it’s prohibitively expensive. The vids I’ve seen of the Throat Locust sound good, but no clue on noise floor.

    And thanks for the thread! This has been awesome to read through and learn!

    I’ve had both the throat Locust and the angry Swede. The throat Locust is noisy. About as noisy as my HM300. No way around it.

    The HM300 is still my favorite out of all 3 though. Even though it’s noisy, it’s savage and works great as a boost compared to the other two.
