    I just scored The Key and Gate pedal today. I wanna see how it stacks up to the Zuul. By the looks of it, it’s does the job slightly better.

    Sweet! Did you get it used?

    It’s got an internal settable boost too. So cool.

    I'm not the type to buy into hype, and his reviews are maybe a bit less 'technical' in nature compared to a few of the bigger channels, but I had a hunch that this was something I might like.

    In all fairness though, playing guitar and recording guitar are entirely separate things. I find Louis relatable.

    We used the Amber Spyglass to get some gnarly, HM-2-esque tones when tracking the new Khemmis album, and man does that pedal rule. I wish he had anything in stock because I’d buy it all right now.

    Fair point!

    Same here, I can’t believe he’s flown under the radar for me. I’d take anything haha!

    Yeah I was actually reading this thread and then jumped over to rigtalk out of bordem and this guy listed his for sale just a few hours prior. I jumped on it because of the internal boost. I’m ready to try that part out for sure.

    Oh WOW!!! That’s gorgeous.

    The post says that they just closed down. I hope that means they will reopen in the future in some capacity. His stuff sounds absolutely incredible.

    I got my Key and Gate pedal and it’s a keeper for sure. Completely transparent. The boost is pretty cool as well. But I’ve set it to even out my normal signal. The sustain rings out great as well. No cut off even with it set pretty high. But it has permanently replaced my Zuul for sure.

    That’s sick! I’ve got the chance to get one of his Gehenna preamp/distortion pedals. Think I’ll have to jump on it ASAP.

    Damn I'd be all over these.... Hope the builder brings back that gate. From what I gathered, he was sick of building it.

    Where did you buy it? Looks like it is sold out on his website.

    I was able to get in contact with him(Daniel) via the Heavy Metal Amps and Pedals group on Facebook. He still has some items left.
