    Your profile pic simultaneously repulses me and cracks me up

    Pictures don't have the same angle, but I see your point

    The Klon circuit has value-added design elements over its predecessors. It's not a DOD clone, for crying out loud. And if you think it's similar to a Distortion+, well, just...wow. The clones do not. I'm not trying to convince people to agree with me about what should be valued and not -- I'm just stating one viewpoint! If you want to buy a cheaper copy, buy a cheaper copy! Someone asked a good question about selling used stuff. My opinion is that the maker collects value on the first sale, and then the object belongs to they purchaser to resell at will. Again, just an opinion.

    I think Steve would consent. To both the DIY jab at his "fame" and your sentiment.

    you can now buy just the assembled guts for the Centura without the actual enclosure

    apparently it is available immediately, without the year long wait.

    It is supposed to fit into any Chinese KLONE 1:1 enclosure

    Now it's time to find some 1:1 KLONE enclosures on Aliexpress

    I'm working on my second Centura...

    This one has the variations from the '2207' Silver Horsie. I have an eBay enclosure and all the guts from Ceriatone.

    Looks great.

    I'm doing the same thing, except I ordered the Pre-assembled guts and only have to screw everything into the Aliexpress enclosure.

    My gold Aliexpress enclosure looks ten times better than my silver one.

    But Nik's new shiny ones look great.

    How’s the manticore sounded when comparing to the Centura?

    Manticore has an original sound (iykwim). it can get very raw. I really like it!

    How soon did Nik send it out after you guys paid? I paid on the 13th and still no pedal :(. I'll wait until I get replies to send him an email. I don't want to jump the gun.

    It really is amazing how fast Nik ships, about three business days to California after payment.

    Right after Chrismas, even!

    He shipped it out couple days after the payment. Nik is a cool cat, go email him and ask. Just note that he HATES questions over the facebook page, he even closed down his messenger.

    I can confirm this, took about 4 days due to weekend from Malaysia to Los Angeles, would've been faster. Amazing. Even my local EBay purchases took forever to get here.

    Yeah I made my payment on a Saturday and hadn't heard anything as of the next Thursday so I emailed him. He quickly replied and apologized for the delay and said he'd have it out first thing Friday. Got the shipping notice Friday afternoon. Pedal was on my doorstep Tuesday.

    So yeah it can't hurt to ask him the status. If he has X amount of pedals completed, likely those who ask will get theirs first. Squeaky wheel gets the oil thing.

    Oh wow. Just simply awesome. I would not even play that in gigs and just put that in a blanket.
