    I've got some money burning a hole in my pocket, and I remember reading about some Australian pedal-maker here. The only problem is that I can't remember the company's name... It had maybe 5 or 6 pedals, which were like classic designs, but taken a coulpe steps farther. I think htere was a 'vibe style pedal and a mutron-iii clone.

    Any ideas? It's driving me crazy...

    Nope, not MI Audio. It had much wackier, more "experimental" effects. And also less well-known. Damn, this is driving me crazy. I even remember thinking at the time "Wow, this is a really cool site, I should bookmark it."

    Also, there is Dubtronics, Tym Guitars and Aphek (Peanut Butter and Sunday Driver).
    I can't think of anyone I know making "wacky" pedals.

    Un-booyah... After perusing the site, I see the maker is no longer accepting orders. Great (10).

    MI Audio is the other major one. Tube Zone, Blue Boy etc. Lots of talk here.

    Propehcy Sound is sadly no more. Mike did have health issues. If you ever get a chance to try one of the few Infinitphases take it. I got one of the prototypes and it's brilliant. Mike was/is a talented guy.

    Yeah that really is a bummer, I wish him the best. I have one of his Rubber Fetish envelope filters that is just unbelievable. Unfortunately I also had a $100 deposit down on a new phaser he was working on, based on the Mutron phaser, that never got completed.....

    Sure you're not thinking NZ? Maybe G2D?

    Yup, ProphecySound is sadly missed. But if you're after wacky, Frostwave is your answer. Their Funk-a-Duck takes the Mutron 3 idea and just plain runs it out of this world. It'll do frequencies from subsonic to ultrawave (which makes one small knob for frequency a little intimidating to tune, and risks blowing up your stuff if you set it wrong). Also usefully hi-fi if you're into it for keys...

    aw man, I had an order in for a Rubber Fetish and talked to him a bit about his new phaser. It really is a shame, he was talented but struggled to do be able to do it for a living.
