    So what's the latest and greatest, especially for boosting an amp?

    Is it still Angry Swede and Throne Torcher? The HM300 still 90% as good as anything out there? MIJ HM2 or GTFO?

    I didn't mean to imply it's bad by any means. It probably gets you 90-95% of the way there. If I don't have my HM-2 or Throne Torcher hooked into the loop of my Stomp, I'll happily use the Line6 version to get chainsaw goodness.

    I absolutely love my Throne Torcher. It's not a carbon copy of my MIT HM-2, but I can get it nearly identical with some adjustment and it's entirely possible those differences just come down to component tolerances. The flexibility the TT has is great though. The LED mode is especially awesome, and the blend control is invaluable.

    I have a HM300 and an Eyemaster on the way solely because of this thread.

    If you end up not liking the HM300 I’ll buy it off you

    Knowing me it'll take about 3 months to try it...

    I think ordered it on gear4music about 15 months ago!

    Step 2 of the ultimate Swedish Death Metal Pedalboard..

    Just got another Rockboard Quad 4.1.. A SD Powerstage 200 will be going in the top left corner. I am still deciding on a power supply but most likely a Truetone CS12.

    Choose your destruction!

    As a boost, I think the Evil Ned is the best. Super simple, and sounds great.

    It’s going to be production right? Not a limited run?

    Unless plans change, it seems like it'll be full production like the rest of the pedals. The only limited run pedal was the fuzz, which was due to parts being so scarce.

    And FWIW apparently they're going to be 159 - 169 GBP in the UK according to some guys calling about preorders. So yeah, will prooobably be around $169 - $199.

    It still boggles my mind to this day, that I got my HM2 for like 30 bucks off Craigslist from some country guitar player in 2012. And now they're going for hundreds, and I paid $150 for a boutique clone.

    That's the price everyone was expecting though. He'll some of us were expecting $199 :lol: the waza line ranges from $150 - $219.

    Also the price of original HM2s have been skyrocketing. I've been seeing them more around $250+ lately
