I have better things to do. What we could all really wish for is that large-scale pedal manufacturers would actually do LISTENING tests on these “identical” parts, rather than just buying whatever is cheapest at the moment.

As a side benefit, you’ll be able to swap chips to test others that may interest you. The new one has the reissue JRC that’s been out for awhile. As mentioned elsewhere, the is a high performancewhich is a better version of another IC.

Those and the chip are the only difference between an and TS No, create an account now. Ben HarmlessJun 4, I guess I’ll check back in 10 years from now and see how things have changed.
