I always knew I didn't like lovepedal, but this is scummy.

eh. if you watch most booteek pedals being traced you have a moment where youre like "hey, that looks familiar"

with the builders on ILF, its always great to see original designs when their pedals are opened up.

I don't understand why they do this to the Timmy circuit..it can be had from the designer him self for a reasonable price.

That is pretty shitty. Lovepedal does seem to always come up in these kind of discussions about boutique pedals either being variants or ripoffs, probably because of the claims he makes about his designs.

The pipe amp is a fleshlight clone.

If the traced schematic is correct (and I don't suspect otherwise), then it's basically a COT (Electra Distortion) as the boost side and a very very close Timmy circuit as the OD side. And by "close" I mean same circuit topology with a one or two value changes.

But lets wait and get a bit more information before we crucify Lovepedal. I mean, they probably just stole it, but let's wait and see.
