    Which pedals now available would get me in this territory? I know D*A*M* made that limited run of 21 and are probably considered the ultimate. I need something that is affordable (meaning less that say 300. and available).

    As far as I know the DAM is it. I'd like to know too.

    I think Gary Hurst was recently selling a reissue of the MKI; don't know if he still is, or how good it is, but that might be another option

    The Hurst RI uses a MKII circuit tuned extra raspy. I believe they sell for $350 from Music Ground. If you're handy with a soldering iron there is a tutorial of sorts on the D*A*M Forum on how to build your own. Otherwise I don't know of any Hurst MKI clones.

    A D*A*M '65 sold on ebay recently for $1,825. Crazy.

    I don't see either one of them claiming they make a MKI. I thought the MKI was basically a Fuzztone clone made in the UK.
    If you are looking for MKI tone save your money buy the old brown Maestro Fuzztone, they sound the same. I think Gibson even re-issued them. Someone posted some links a while back for comparison and I could not tell the difference. It's pretty much a one trick pony good for spagetti western stuff and Satisfaction covers.

    Thanks for replies. Could not find much feedback/reviews on either one. How about just units that have tight bass and good cut?

    I think Doug at Midfi can do one up for ya. He's got clips and everything.
