    Excuse me. Excuse me, sir. You can't park here. Sir. Sir, excuse me, you can't park that tank here. Sir, you can't park that tank here. Excuse me, sir, you can't park that tank here. Excuse me, you can't park that tank here -green sweater woman

    and speaking of tanks, are mooer pedals built like them?


    My definition of "built like a tank" in terms of pedals is more like FoxRox pedals or Fulltone. These are not those pedals, however, they appear well built and sturdy enough to stand up to years of regular use...especially if your board uses some sort of loop switcher. You'd be hard pressed to find a better built pedal for the same money.

        i never even heard of them until today.. just checked out their website. damn good deals! i can see why you bought a **************** ton!
        We just spent $64,000 in that bar. We're going to have to get jobs, to cover up the fact that we rob banks.

          Looks great...seems well built just like the other Mooer pedals I have. I won't know how it sounds until I get home.

            cool. let us know. that phaser looks great too. hell, tell us what you think about all of them.

            what do you think of the Rat? is it mostly like a Proco or different sounding?

                Yeah...I'm going to build a smaller, more air-travel friendly version of my main board with them. Plus it's nice to have some classic sounds at your fingertips for recording and stuff without having to break the bank. Plus many of them come with popular modifications or "b" versions built in. They are really onto something at Mooer. I'm picking up what they're throwing down.

                  I like the RAT clone a lot. I spent a good amount of time going through various settings and voltages (you can run them at up to 12 volts according to the manual...no more though). It does what it sets out to do.

                  Here's a video comparing an 86 RAT with a reissue, a Turbo RAT and the Mooer Black Secret. Some folks like the '86 better...I thought the '86 sounded a little harsh to me in this vid. Also, at different settings I can get it to sound more like the '86 without too much trouble.

                  Enjoy.

                    Well, I got the new batch of Mooers home and they are about as impressive as the first batch. Like the first order, there are three that I like and one that I'm less impressed with but still find reasonably useful. So...here's the breakdown.

                    Mooer Flex Boost Overdrive
                    OK...with this one I was able to make a direct comparison to my Xotic AC Booster (the pedal the Flex Boost appears to reference) and it was very revealing. Overall the pots function very much like the AC Booster with the exception of the level control. You have to turn the pedal up to about 20 to get the same level out of it that you would with the AC Booster set at 120, but once you have the level up, it's PLENTY loud so no worries about running out of sweep to get your level.

                    The overall tone was remarkably similar and with a few small tweaks I was able to get them sounding extremely close to one another. The only difference was in the feel, which again, is very similar, but part if what makes the AC Booster and other Xotic pedals so great is their amp like responsiveness. That being said, the Flex Boost is no slouch. Running the Flex Boost at 12 volts instead of 9 volts yielded a little more responsiveness and with a little more tweaking I was able to get even closer to the AC Boost. When all is said and done I definitely prefer the AC Boost but I would happily use the Flex Boost in it's place without feeling like I was losing a whole lot. If you're on a budget or if you're like me and you want to put together the smallest board possible for fly-in gigs and recording sessions, the Flex Boost is an excellent choice if you're considering the AC Booster. It's hard to not like this pedal.


                    Mooer Triangle Buff Fuzz
                    As the name implies, the pedal is modled after the Electro Harmonix Big Muff...and it definitely achieves Big Muffiness. The question is which Muff as there are so many versions (and clones). My reference points here at home are the Wren & Cuff "Box Of War" pedals, the Skreddy Top Fuel, and the Electro Harmonix Little Big Muff. Now does the Mooer Triangle Buff compare to a $200 boutique Big Muff clone? **************** no! Are you high? It's good, but it's not that good. If you like a stock Big Muff, you will probably like this one better. It's a little quieter noise wise and can sound a little more open than the Little Big Muff at similar settings. It's great for pretty much everything you'd buy a Big Muff for. I definitely like it better than my Little Big Muff and at a third of the size it's kind of a no brainer if you're considering any of Electro Harmonix's current Big Muff offerings. I wish it had a little more mid range on tap (this pedal has more hair than teeth)...maybe a nice mid range toggle switch would be a great addition but as you know Big Muffs aren't known for having agressive mids. Definitely worth the price of admission and then some.


                    Mooer Ninety Orange Phaser
                    Another nice analog modulation pedal from Mooer. Based on the MXR Phase 90, it features a popular Phase 90 mod with it's Vintage/Modern toggle switch. I compared this to my Retro Sonic Phaser, which is a very nice Phase 90 clone. The overall sound is about what you would expect. There is no volume drop or boost. In the lower speed setting it's not as lush as the Retro Sonic. I like the slow warm round phaser sounds you hear on Smashing Pumpkins' "Mayonaise" for clean arpeggios...the Ninety Orange does not do that as well. Where this phaser really starts to come to life is around 110 or 120. It's a little more full sounding...from noon to full up you get nicer slow to fast vibrato sounds that easily rival some decent Univibe type pedals. Switch the toggle from vintage to modern and it gets a little brighter and more open sounding which works better with distortion and overdrive, in my opinion. It's a nice phaser but some might find it a little bright or hard sounding in lower speed settings and that might be a deciding factor for you if you're looking for a main phaser. For me, I already have a phaser I like. The Orange 90 does some things my favorite phaser doesn't do as well so for me it's a keeper.


                    Mooer Blue Faze Fuzz
                    Of the four pedals in this batch, this was probably my least favorite but I was still able to find some useful tones that I'm not getting from my other fuzz pedals. It appears to be modled after a silicon Fuzz Face. My reference point for comparison is my FoxRox Hot Silicon, which, I will state up front absolutely kills the Blue Faze. They're not even in the same league even though their inspiration is the same. The Blue Faze is a simple, two knob affair. Like most Fuzz Faces you really need to crank the volume knob to get the fuzz to match your clean signal. I found I pretty much had to turn the volume of the Blue Faze all the way up so that it balanced well with my clean sound (distortion should pretty much always be at LEAST a little louder than your clean sound. There is no greater rookie move than when a guitarist is at a gig, hits his distortion after playing a clean intro and it's actually quieter than his clean sound. That being said, once I maxed out the level I was able to get an appropriate level against my clean and work the fuzz control to fine tune things. The tone is definitely in the vintage fuzz realm...a little splatty to a little ratty depending on how you set it. To my ears it sounded more like an octave fuzz but without the octave...it had the same spatty, fuzzy tone like an octave fuzz...just no oscillation. With a clean boost after it it starts to soar a bit. Before an overdrive it doesn't fair as well but give it a loud, clean headroom boost and it has a unique lead voice. If you're looking for a good silicon Fuzz Face pedal, there are a lot of great options out there and this probably wouldn't be your first choice. BUT...if you're looking for a unique lead pedal or a raunchy vintage style rhythm fuzz (was able to crank out a pretty gnarly sounding version of the Stones' Brown Sugar with it) the cost makes it an easy and useful addition to your fuzz collection. YMMV.

                            Nope. The only affiliation I have with any equipment company is that I'm on the Mesa Boogie artists list.

                                Reviews to follow...I've been most excited about the ElecLady. I'm hoping it is to the EHX Electric Mistress what the Ensemble King is to the CE-2.
