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.
