Didn't work well with my amp.

CMAT mods BrowniePublished on 05/03/11 at 04:59
The Cmat-Mods Brownie is an all analog pedal based on a BSIAB circuit. It’s build to mimic a Marshall amp at full tilt so it has a lot of gain and sustain. You get the typical Level, Gain and Tone controls. Pedal can be run from a 9v battery or with a power supply. Oh and there’s a VERY bright blue LED. I got mine in a trade and it came with 2 extra JFETS to tailor the tone.

UTILIZATION

Dialing in the pedal wasn’t really hard, there’s plenty of gain and level. This is a high gain pedal so it is not really suited as a boost but you can pull it off, there’s enough output to get a good boost even if the gain is low.

UTILIZATION

Dialing in the pedal wasn’t really hard, there’s plenty of gain and level. This is a high gain pedal so it is not really suited as a boost but you can pull it off, there’s enough output to get a good boost even if the gain is low. The tone control does not have a huge range and that’s on culprit I discovered with this pedal. The 2 additional JFETS I got with mine were lower gain and I played around with them. The difference wasn’t huge but it could be useful for some people.

SOUND QUALITY

I tried this pedal as I was looking for a good fat rock tone. I was using an Analogman modded SD9 but wanted something different, with more bite. I was running this into a 1973 50w JMP Bass that I run clean. Although I could get some good tones out of the pedal, there were a number of reasons why I traded it on. I found there was a HUGE difference in how the pedal worked depending on the volume of your amp and the pedal. I found the pedal either being to harsh or to compressed sounding. I could dial out the harshness but then it got lost in the mix, turning up the pedal made it compress more and that ruined the feel for me.

OVERALL OPINION

I ended up trading the pedal for a Wampler Pinnacle and that got me what I wanted. The Brownie seems to be picky about the amp you run it into and your guitar. I found it suited better for single coils than humbuckers which is a surprise. Still, you can get some good tones from it.

Overdrive/Distortion, just like a good OD channel.


UTILIZATION

Easy to use Volume Gain Tone. Plus the possibility to change the Transistors inside in order to change the gain and the sound.

SOUND QUALITY

It really nails the Van Halen sound, very organic and dynamic, not to much to complain about.

OVERALL OPINION

Excellent pedal, I recommand it!

OVERALL OPINION

I was looking for the Marshall sound in a pedal and I found the brownie:
There's probably even better, but much more expensive and not in this format.
The sound is pretty awesome: organic, full of gain and harmonics with a excellent dynamics, but above all, the grain is really great, of course, this limits its versatility, but once you get this sound in the ear, we want more.
It is probably more rough and cavernous other OD the more clinical definition, but the charm and acting is all we ask him;

the knobs are very effective and helps to adapt well to all places or environments, and finally we can just blame him for not being as good a slight crunch that distortion, because it is really with the potato bug unfolds; Ideal for Knob the sound of the guitar volume, you will not regret it
