        I've tried a Harmonic Percolator clone before. It doesn't actually sound like anything special to me, so I'm wondering what's so special about it.

          it seems they've added a gain stage to make it sound more badass, but you can use the internal switches to make it be like a stock HP.here

            To be honest, we had the same initial reaction. We found that adding some extra gain up front can push it closer to the sound that many people expect or are looking for from an Interfax clone, and can take it from a fairly linear amplifier off into some very aggressive, harsh fuzz tones and points inbetween. Even just adding a unity gain input buffer opens up the sound, making brighter and louder. It's probably not a box for everyone, but we dig it.

            We'll be shipping the first units either tomorrow afternoon or wedneday morning, and updating people as orders ship. Reaction has been huge so far, but we should still be able to fill orders in our usual turnaround time, more or less...

            Thanks!:wave:

              How'd you get yours for $109? It says $119 on the site.

              Also, I don't see a seperate page for the harmonic perculator clone? Is it as big as the bee baa clone or can someone tell me the dimensions of it?

                In typical BC fashion, it's nicely priced. Wouldn't mind a clip as I have no idea what they sound like

                      Listen to some Albini, (Big Black, Rapeman, Shellac,) or Slint for an idea of what a Harmonic Percolator sounds like. Ragged and Cutting are two words that come to mind, but I'm sure there are other ways to dial them in.

                        Clips will be up as soon as I figure out how to make my M-Audio Firewire Solo stop clipping. I can accept the fact that my playing sucks, but unnecessary digital noise just isn't cutting it. If anyone has any advice, I'd REALLY appreciate it.

                            Go here to get the jist of it.

                            edit:
                            That does seema little tame for it. Didn't the Guess Who use it on American Woman? But atleast that get you into the ballpark. Maybe check out the Urso splinter clips, that's the only other harmonic percolator clone that comes to mind
