I've studied at Motueka South Island for one year, best of my life so far

What;s the deal with the Landgraff myth?No offense meant to anyone, but am I wrong in thinking that the Landgraff Dynamic Overdrive is nothing but a nicely voiced but overhyped tubescreamer? I keep hearing how he supposedly hand selects all his particular parts and mysteriously concocts some sort of magic by "reworking all the circuit's inherent shortcomings" - or some such thing like that. Changes the likes of which apparently no one else has ever stumbled upon. I heard this about his 5E3 clone too - "man, the best sounding Tweed Deluxe ever made" - what I saw when I looked into one that came my way was a BONE STOCK 5E3 right off the original schematic. Not one shred of difference (I measured all the values) except a push/pull pot for a bright switch. Looked like a decent OT but nothing MM couldn't build for you. Bruce Collins (God bless him) would have laughed. Well, his OD pedal came my way too and it seemed like deja vu all over again. Basically a tubescreamer circuit in a small hammond box placed on what could have been Radio Shack perfboard and stuck onto the pots with 2 sided tape. It sounded nice and creamy but so does some of the newer mods Keeley's doing. Or anyone else I guess who studies Orman, Keen et al. Somebody clue me in cuz I just ain't gettin' it.
I had to look that one up. Vile and pernicious but not exactly an envenomator. Besides, they run away when the lights come on. I think they must be very "fatty" because when I'd douse 'em with laquer thinner and apply flame, they'd burn for several minutes.seniorLoco wrote:nasty bugs.....here in the States
