    I ordered one of these a few days ago, but never received any kind of order confirmation. I also haven't received a response to my message regarding my order status. Is this normal?

    I ordered the Throbby directly from Basic Audio, and had a bit of communication and it was fine. Small shop, so maybe John is busy at the moment? I don’t know. I’ve never heard of any problems with communication or an order.

    Ok, so the ordering process is like dealing with a really apathetic Reverb seller. I almost feel like there's a chance I may not have received the pedal had I not reminded him about my order. So you'll get no order confirmation, and you'll have no idea when it'll ship out, but it will turn up eventually......just make sure you remind him to send you one. Hopefully he'll start focusing a bit more on customer service, as an order confirmation, and some kind of shipping info are just basic things you'd expect from even an inexperienced Reverb seller.

    But the pedal is amazing! Love it! I was looking for a subtle, organic, tremolo, and it's really perfect for that application. I'm very happy I finally pulled the trigger on this one!

    Glad you got one! It’s my favorite pedal.
