    Yeah. I was holding out for Walrus to release a limited Deep Six Comp V3 in a really cool and colourful version (the stock one looks cool, but they have some awesome limited edition releases), but I think blacked out pedals are extremely boring.......
    Guess I have to wait a little longer buying a comp hehe.

    I recall the guys on TPS saying Keeley was doing a black on black D&M Drive very soon. So likely, and unfortunately, that’s what it is.

    My guess is that this collective “BlackedXOut” campaign is a way to drive D2C (direct to consumer) sales for the manufacturers, bypassing the retailers, by offering Limited editions only available from the pedal maker.

    Smart.

    I’m sure there’s extra $$$ in it somewhere for the manufacturers.

    I spoke with a couple of the builders participating and was able to talk them into sending me a pic of the BlACKEDXOUT pedals.

    Here you go

    The question is how much more black can it be? The answer is none. None more black.

    This should be pretty close to what's in the short clip. Some of these companies make pedals where they all look the same. The Meris is probably one of their pedals that isn't already black so probs not the Ottobit. The Walrus is probs the Slo just because its the newest thing with that control layout. The Chase Bliss is probs the Dark World just because that makes sense. No idea on the Wampler or EQD options and there are probably companies that didn't get a pedal in for this little video clip but are still involved.

    I'm always surprised by how little you hear of Idiotbox. He's done a bunch of really interesting unique pedals as well as some awesome takes on classic circuits. Very under the radar builder IMO.

    Highly agreed. Anyone who builds a VoiVod themed pedal has my support for life. I remember getting in on the first runs of the acid etched Blower Box and Dungeon Master for $99 ea. They were insane quality for the money. His build quality is still killer and he's extremely prolific, to boot. Also, extremely nice and humble.

    I'd like to see the Montréal Assembly and Fairfield offerings.

    Since these are coming this Friday I wonder if all the companies will be avoiding Black Friday sales and limited editions. Basically saying screw BF and doing their own thing?

    And I would take a black Rever...I need that in my life (crosses fingers).

    Why do people think these pedal companies would avoid Black Friday sales? All of the companies participating in whatever this is are commercial entities looking to grow each year.

    They haven't posted anything about it and I would be surprised if Fairfield joined in considering painted pedals wouldn't work well for their stamped graphics.

    So glad I don't like blacked out pedals. I have enough crap to remember in my daily life that is way more important than the control layout of my pedals. I don't need to be squinting my eyes trying to read which knob is the volume on a blacked out pedal in a dimly lit bar.
