After nearly 20 years of searching, I finally found myself the highly coveted Dharma Sound Distorter!
It arrived this morning after a somewhat arduous journey from the UK, and is currently being drooled over by myself as I write this.
There is not a ton out there about really any of the Dharma Sound pedals. The most common one, the Phaser (which we discussed HERE
way back in 2011) is still quite rare itself. But there was actually an entire series; including the Warper
, and the Eliminator
, just to name a few.
I have been collecting info and old adverts over the years, but there's still a lot to learn before I dive in with a full and detailed post on this.
The big thing to know is that it's quite clear after seeing the original Orange pedals from the 70s that Dharma Sound was the manufacturer; as they were literally the same designs, just with a different paint job. But we'll discuss that much more in a later post...
For now, let us all bask in the glory of this awesomely rare bird. Thanks for coming along on this ridiculous ride, as always!
