Re: Lovetone stuff

I've got their ring modulator.  It's really a ring modulator/octave 
fuzz/theramin type box.  Ring modulation is one of those effects that 
often sounds sort of horrible ("Dude...is your amp, uh--broken?") when 
you're just doinking in the music store, but in the context of a full 
track is often suprisingly usable.  Even in sort of conventional pop 
songs.  My problem with the Ring Stinger is that it's impossible to 
recall a sound, and the same control does drastically different things 
depending on some of the rotary switch settings.
