    i have the FU-223..the first production of it actually.. it’s a brilliant fuzz pedal!
    fell in love with the tones i got from it straight away..made me want to play for hours..
    i was after that classic 60s/70s fuzz.. just wanted something to make my guitar nice and hairy and dirty and sustain for ages..the modern mass produced pedals that are apparently clones of the classic Tone Benders or Super Fuzzes or Fuzz Faces really fall short, the ones i’ve tried just feel so weak and lacking, and most boutique pedals are out of a lot of people’s price range (especially pedal nuts like me) ..this pedal has exactly what i was looking for, only better, and more than i expected.. there’s a good range on all the knobs, better than a lot of fuzzes..it cleans up pretty nice at lower settings if you wanted it to ..a little noticable noise when the fuzz knob is all the way up, but hey, if you’ve got it turned up there you wanna get dirty anyway =)
    fantastic solo tone..
    i use a lot of pedals and like a classic fuzz it doesn’t always get along well with some of them..which leads to some very fun oscillation and random tremolo stuff going on..i love it
    ..it depends what you want in a fuzz, but for me, i can’t fault this pedal.. wonderful tone like classic fuzzes, but with some modern improvements (love the tone knob), boutique build quality, small size great for pedalboards..
    i always want there to be one on my board..i plan on buying a second (maybe even third) because these may be a limited thing..but first i want to get my hands on some of Kintoko’s other pedals
    ..i love this pedal.. if you want that late 60s/early 70s fuzz..buy one

    EchoLogue Analog delay:
    It seems to be very well made. My idea was to get some analog delay, but after hours of web research I decided to try some digital delay with ´analog´ sound. The bypass signal is not affected by this unit. When it´s on, the original signal seems to be the same, but it has some nice and musical echoes added. Still trying to find something I don´t like about this pedal. If your guitar sounds good with band and cuts well through the mix, it will sound even better with this delay.

  3. Trondolo Tremolo Pedal
    This is pretty straightforward: knobs for rate and depth, and a toggle switch to select square or sine wave. It’s pretty easy to get the sound you’re looking for. The rate knob gives more control over slow speeds than high speeds, this is brilliant for matching a slower tremolo to the tempo of a song but makes it a little tricky getting a fast tremolo exactly right (if you’re as picky as I am). A small inconvenience but actually worth it for the greater control at the bottom end.

    This is a great pedal! I love the sound. It’s got a bit of a retro feel about it, which I like. It’s very clear, and doesn’t mess with the tone of my sound at all. It’s true bypass, so when it’s off you wouldn’t even know it’s there.

    It has a good range of effect as well. Very slow to very fast rate, quite mild to very abrupt tremolo. The two extremes – from minimum depth, sine wave to maximum depth, square wave – are worlds apart. With a bit of tweaking, I can recreate just about any tremolo I can find in my CD collection, including, for example, the slow sharp one in Midnight Oil’s ‘Only the Strong’, the classic organic-sounding one in ‘Riders On The Storm’. The only sound I can’t get is a really ultra-mild, very subtle one. That’s not a problem for me, but I guess it’s a little room for improvement.

    This thing is built like a tank. The case is cast aluminium, the sockets are firmly attached to the case. It could go head to head with a Boss and it would be a dead heat. You could be charged with carrying an offensive weapon if you were stopped by the police. Etc.

    I play retro-flavoured pop-rock in a band that plays all original music. I also work with a pianist in a duo that has a more alt-folk feel. The Trondolo perfectly suits my style of music, especially with my love for all things vintage.

    Overall, this is a great little device. It’s my favourite pedal actually. And would be good value for money if it cost twice as much.

    Teman teman, tentu kalian waktu kecil kenal sama tokoh kartun yang namanya HULK kan? dan tentunya kalian masih inget sama warna dari badan si HULK ini. Nah warna Echologue itu sama dengan warnanya HULK! Warnanya ijo!! Hore!!
    Jadi jika kalian adalah fans dari Green Day, suka lagu Green Tinted Sixties Mind, merasa mirip Green Goblin, atau ikut dalam kampanye Go Green! Atau bahkan suka dengerin Hijau Daun. Tentunya pas sekali dengan pedal Echologue ini..

    Saya ingat sekali ketika kemarin menunggu datangnya Pak Pos yang hendak mengirim Echologue ini (Ya,pabrik KS Aji Toneworkshop berlokasi di Batam, jadi harus di kirim via pos untuk pembelian barangnya, kecuali kalian tinggal serumah sama Mas Aji). Dalam detik detik penantian Echologue, saya terus menunggu dan menunggu datangnya si Pak Pos (bukan nama sebenarnya) di depan rumah sambil makan kacang. Hingga akhirnya di hari berikutnya Echologue tiba juga!

    Lalu perlahan saya buka kotaknya, saya kagumi bentuknya, lalu saya ambil adaptor dan mulai memasang si Echologue ke ampli saya..

    Sejenak saya connect pedal dalam posisi off ini utk memastikan True Bypass nya. Hasilnya adalah sound gitar tetap transparan dan bersuara sebagaimana mestinya. True bypass? Check!
    Mengenai fitur, pedal ini memiliki 3 buah knob. Repeat, Level, dan Delay. Penggunaannya sangat mudah dan simple. Kalo begini aja masih bingung dan nggak ngerti2 juga silahkan jalankan ibadah puasa senin-kamis-jumat-sabtu, mungkin anda kena Azab.

    Setelah mengatur knob parameter yang ada, saya mulai memainkan beberapa riff sederhana. Sejenak dua jenak saya terdiam dan terkesima. Sound echo yang ada sungguh natural dan terasa seperti analog delay (ya ini adalah pedal digital delay yang mereplika sound analog) . Saya tidak perlu menambahkan reverb karena echo yang ada sudah reverby,dalam konteks yang sangat proporsional. Dan delay time yang panjang juga jadi kelebihan pedal ini. Repeat pada delay time selain panjang juga tidak jadi muddy atau dark atau istilahnya ngegulung (pocong kali ngegulung..) Tetep WARM and CLEAR!

    Untuk kalian yang suka musik musik seperti MONO, The Trees and The Wild, The Shadows, atau bahkan Hair Metal 80an saya rasa delay ini cocok untuk anda.Walau delay ini juga di desain untuk mengakomodir seluruh jenis musik.
    Sebuah kekurangan yang ada pada pedal ini adalah mungkin tidak disertakannya manual book dan box packaging yang resmi dari KS Aji Toneworkshop.Cukup disayangkan mengingat finsihing nya yang bagus namun tidak disertakan box yang cantik juga.
    Tapi overall, menurut saya ini adalah pedal delay yang sangat cemerlang untuk mendapatkan suasana echo yang mellow dan tetap clear artikulasinya namun tidak terlampau steril seperti pedal2 digital delay populer seperti BOSS DD yusuf dll..

    Harga yang tertera di website resmi nya adalah Rp. 850.000,00
    Murah? mahal? itu biar anda yang menentukan. Tapi yang jelas untuk produk dalam negeri, Echologue dari KS Aji Toneworkshop adalah sebuah benchmark tentang bagaimana seharusnya pedal efek itu dibuat. Konstruksi yang kokoh dan finishing yang cantik serta sound yang bagus adalah 3 hal dasar yang dimiliki KS Aji Toneworkshop dalam produknya.Tidak heran produk2nya sangat diminati oleh konsumen dari luar negeri. Silahkan cek sound sample dan penampakan Echologue di website nya. And let your ears and eyes be the judge.

    Untuk THE REVIEW episode ini saya berikan 4 dari 5 bintang untuk Echologue.

    Echologue

    The most “warmest” delay pedal. After I read a this pedal review, I think “I must get this pedal on my rig!!”.

    This delay pedal has 3 knob that functioneds to regulate repeat, delay time, and your delay level. As easy as you make an instant cup noodles. The true bypass make the other delay pedals look likes chicken to me. Sound and tone? You should try how warm and clarity of this pedal . Price? “Cheapest”, so K.S. Aji must add that word into echologue delay pedal review on this site.

    Whenever you want make yourself as joe satriani or stevie ray vaughn, you must try and buy this one as soon as possible. You will be not disappointed.

    As an Indonesian, I’m so proud of you to make a great delay. Maybe I should try the another pedals from you.

    I would Like to recommend AJI’s effects, i bought the echologue, and the Tube overdrive, which are both great in sound and quality of building, you can see the effort in each and every of them, they sound much better than any commercial effect iv’e heard!
    thanks AJI for opening my ears to this great sounds!!!
    wish you all the best!
