    He doesn't even know how to drill holes in straight lines on square boxes, logical reasoning is obviously unattainable.

    I bet he boasts about "creating the boutique market" all the time, and complains about other makers getting in on the action. Just seems like that sort of person based on this little window into his mind.

    I like how the original manufacturer resuming production of their product, now that demand has been identified, is trashed as a "cash grab"... by a dude making money from selling a pricey clone. The absence of self-awareness is stunning.

    I think it's both. :lol:

    Isn't the LWA dude known for being a giant baby with a huge ego? I think he thinks THEY'RE treading on HIS market he created.

    Perhaps his post was written by Giuliani.

    Second one, obviously. First one is just a shitty excuse.

    So, it’s some kind of germanium fuzz then?

    He responded to that screenshot in the HMAP group on fb and basically said he was a fan of boss but wasn't interested in the stream or the pedal.
    He's an insufferable cunt most of the time in that group. He talks shit about other pedal builders all the time and has a big ego about his brand. Doesn't help that a bunch of the guys in the HMAP group stroke his ego and talk up his pedals.

    It is possible to both be insufferably cocky and also good at what you do. Is that the case with him or nah?

    Yes, but in this case what he's good at is really easy.

    Straight up the reason I went for the Throne Torcher over any of his HM2 options. I've heard good things about the sounds from some of his pedals but man, he comes across as an absolute prick consistently.

    That Lone Wolf dude needs to take lessons from the guy who runs JHS pedals. That guy is so concentrated on talking positively about other pedal manufacturers that it almost has a reverse psychology effect. Makes you want to support someone who is so passionate about pedals.

    Which is amazing because, correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't JHS at least accused of ripping off other companies' circuits? Like...not all that long ago?

    JHS's youtube channel is a treat btw and everyone needs to check it out. Like you said, Josh is so passionate about gear.

    Also there was a company (Chase Bliss IIRC) that was making a MuTron phase clone. When they got word that MuTron was reissuing their phase pedal, they discontinued it out of courtesy.

    Similarly JHS discontinued their Klon clone when the KTR came out.

    JHS are usually quite upfront about what they're cloning, why they're cloning it and only cloning discontinued things.

    Like the Clover is very on the nose.
