    Ah, just sussed out the name of one of the new pedals on Thorpyfx’s Facebook page

    I see “NER” and 4 stars.

    Put the two together and add another star, and you get a “5 star General”.


    Whoooooooooo! Yeah!

    My guess is the new 5 Star ‘boNER’ pedal  :)

    No - it's the NERD pedal - the 5 stars are for his math's test result.
    It gets you a wedgie or a Chinese burn at breaktime

    Many guitars have a re-sale value. Some you'll never want to sell.

    The Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner pedal for playing the Batman TV theme. 
    I feel the warm, healing, liquid presence of God’s genuine cold-filtered grace.

    I'm going to hazard a guess, it's some kind of delay, called a Prisoner...

    Hmmm. Just had a proper look and I don't think it's an R. Right hand leg looks wrong for an R, and I think it's more like a N or M, so something with NEN, NEM in it, but my brain is drawing a blank.

    Going by @ThorpyFX's not so subtle hint, I would of went with Informant or Informer, but that doesn't fit the text or spacing. And everything else I can think of relating to four stars wouldn't fit.

    it's a NERF, as in nerf gun.
    Fatherhood and Xmas has him playing shoot em ups with the kids with spongy bullets

    Well ... to follow through in talking about your products ...

    That Germanium Veteran is a great pedal. The hard part about having this on my pedalboard is the dreaded suspicion that the Silicon Veteran is a better pedal, despite me not having ever tried one. The 'boost' is as clear/clean as you'd ever want it. And I'm appreciating just how different the fuzz is from overdrive. Fantastic.

    Keep up the great work!

    Enjoy NAMM .... and California ... and to get you in the mood ...

    it’s difficult this one. I don’t think either is inherently better than  the other. The only way I can describe it is like this.

    imagine two brothers, one moves to Canada and the other stays in the UK. Both have similar lives.

    on a reunion, they are so very similar but they have different accents from each other. Depending on your ears, you’d prefer one or the other or maybe you’d be unable to state a preference and this is where I sit.

    for me, I’m loving the silicon at the moment, but sometimes I just need the germanium sound for specific things.... thankfully I have both.

    come to the Brum guitar show and try the silicon, you may find you just don’t care enough to worry  after that.
