Pricy and digital osc / analog filter hybrid .... So even more pricy in that sense :/

nifty.. but if you want to do that, it's definitely cheaper to just grab a set of MIDI bass pedals and a synth lite 2 (which is what the sequencer.de link says it is)

Price is way too high, especially when you can get a used Taurus 3 for $1,600 to $1,700, there is nothing built in for foot control, and a sequencer doesn't make much sense for something that you play with your feet. This would have been ideal as a "Taurus II" type of unit, where the brains were separate for tweaking as you play with your feet. Crumar used to be less expensive alternatives to the big names, but not this one.

Has more functionality than I thought. And it's cheaper than we thought. Hmmmm.
Price on Crumar's new site states only $950usd for these... not too bad.

How's the low-end on those MFB synths?

The crumar "three a*s man" pedal?
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

I laughed heartily at this, aloud, at my desk at work. then quickly minimized all non-work related windows as my boss came over and reminded me that I shouldn't be browsing forums at work.

Crumar is back in business??!! :roll: the f**k?

Addendum: Holy s**t. I wonder if this could potentially mean my rare as f**k BitOne might be worth something. PRAYING they make some rad s**t and become a hit. :beg:
bonne chance

Anyone here have experience with the original? There's one for sale near me for $200 on Craigslist and I've been tempted...

Just got a reply from Crumar. $950 includes shipping to the US.

The deal just keeps getting better. Now I just need to know if the Triple a*s Man can really deliver three asses-worth of bass...
