ok so I opened a thread before where I discussed some pedals.. and I got a suggestion to buy the Matchless Dirtbox.. but I can't find it anywhere.
Does anyone here know a website where I can find the preferences and ( or ) pricings ?
also, does it pay to buy a marshall OD pedal ? and which one ?
i play solo in a rock band

i'll see what i can find out....hey look on my websight. there may be a link
to matchless, if i remember right.


Seyo, I mentioned the Matchless. I think it is no longer made. My guitarist had his unit fail and it was a very tricky repair. Some new company has taken over the name.

The important thing to remember is that this is (was) a very expensive, £300, OD/distortion. I think it's briliant, but I wouldn't spend that much money just on my say-so. Perhaps you might hear a really good OD on a track by a band you like. A web-search may turn up the information on what pedal was used. The more info you get, the better your chances of buying something that doesn't disappoint you.

i seem to remember something about Matchless going out of buisness last year, but a search on thier amps brings up lots of dealers, ive never played one of those dirtboxes but ive seen outstanding reveiws on them, but if you are looking for a valve driven overdrive pedal then how about the Messa one? i think its called the 'V-Twin'? same kind of money too.



no. badcat is matchless resurrected.


oooooohhhhh, now i get it, they still have the same factory? still boutique amps? still same quality? same designs? different badge.

same dream. new money. new name


and of course no Badcat warranties.

now that i really dont know....but i am a believer in the no bull warranty.
If ya don't like it get ya money questions, as long as it hasn't been used for an ashtray.
