December 11th: Added 5 units due to popular demand! **READ THIS BEFORE PURCHASING*** This is the last batch of the standard Angry Swede before the release of the 2020 model update. The forthcoming updated version will add a couple of new features and will be available January / February with a slightly higher price tag.
Please note: This batch is scheduled to ship by December 23 or (most probably) sooner. Althought we work only with the fastest shipping carriers (48/72h worldwide in most cases), we cannot 100% guarantee you will receive your pedal in time for Christmas. If you need it for Christmas, please let me know via message / email.
Decibelics Angry Swede is the first Mini 'Chainsaw' HM-2 clone ever made.
It is hand-built with the high quality standards Decibelics is well known for, and uses old through-hole components just like in the originals. It provides huge amounts of raw chainsaw tone in the most pedalboard-friendly footprint. You won't believe how big and powerful this little monster screams.
With this project, as with the Decibelics Golden Horse Mini-Klon project, my goal was to create not only the first Mini HM2 ever made, but also the most accurate clone. For this, I used 3 original Boss HM2 as a sound basis, taking the best characteristics of each and combining them for a rounded, well balanced studio quality HM2 raw fury as used by either David Gilmour and Entombed.
Also, I improved one of the downsides of the circuit: Background noise. I designed the pcb and carefully chose the components to make it the less noisy HM-2 ever made. It's even one of the less noisy distortions you'll ever have! This was a major challenge -it's so hard to achieve a low noise floor with hi-gain pedals in so tiny enclosures- But it was well worth the effort, as a result the pedal is amazingly quiet.
Last but not least, I converted it to True Bypass, and kept the last buffer into the effected (non-bypassed) signal, to be true to the original.
'If you are looking for the most accurate clone of the HM-2 I had (with all the good things and some bad things eliminated), this might be the your weapon of choice. I literally hear no difference with my late '88 HM2, and that's both terrifying and impressive'
