      Nevermind my previous comment. I just got it. I plugged it in and turned it on and HOLY CRAP!! It sounds amazing. It sounds like my amp is on fire (in the good way if that exists.) I also got it with the added boost and I love the smooth distortion when to boost kicks in. Overall, this is one of my favorite pedals.

      @Vincent Same here. He said I'd have it by the weekend bit it's still in pre-shipment.

      Am still waiting for mine after USPS declares it's been in pre-shipment for two weeks now...

      Hey guys, I just posted a Backer update for the project. Everyone has shipped except 3 international backers that will ship on the 10th and 1 US backer that I am waiting on a new part for. I've talked with Kit and he has his tracking info. I tried multiple times to get in touch with Mark, his tracking info say he has the pedal, but I haven't been able to get any response other than his comments here. If anyone is missing a pedal besides the backers mentioned in the update, please let me know right away so I can make arrangements for them to ship out with the pedals on the 10th. Thanks to everyone for all of your support and patience. If you ever have an issue with your pedal, just contact me and I will take care of it for you.

      I too am beginning to doubt I'll see my pedal. And I ponied up for the custom painted with boost option,

      Yes, several times. Still NOTHING!

      Have you tried getting in touch with Caleb? I've found him to be pretty responsive in the emails I've sent to him...

      Still nothing here.

      I have mine, and it works well (after some adjustments as Caleb mentioned in his last message).

      Has anyone actually gotten one? I'm so glad I didn't get suckered into supporting his second kickstarter campaign!

    13. Matt Smith on

      Apparently mine is packed and ready to go. Will update if/when I get tracking numbers (sometimes not an option for Australian buyers like me) and/or the pedal.

      I think we've been scammed.

    16. Matt Smith on

      Yep, still nothing for me as well. Anyone actually have one yet?

      Nothing here yet either. Last message read that they had all been sent out.

    19. Matt Smith on

      I heard from him today (I expect most of you did as well). Apparently there was a problem with the last batch of transistors and they haven't been sent out yet. Hopefully this week...

      Has anyone else not received their rewards yet? I've tried contacting Caleb 3 times now with no response and am beginning to get a little worried.
