Jack Deville of Mr. Black also collaborated on some of the delays and reverbs, and I think both he and Alf worked on the 60s Reverb Nailed It! that came out in the final SNSs.
Most of the digital pedals: delays and reverbs, were designed by Alf. Then Sean would tweak and release a different version or two... But the Spring, for example, was Alf. Then tweaked into two or three versions. So, without him, way less variety-just variations on drives and chorus.
I have no idea where all these rumors come from, but I am shocked at the level of prying into someone's personal life.
Dude... Stick to gear talk.
Yes, the core Hermida pre partnership pedals were Hermida designs. Pretty sure the reverb was already in existence before the partnership. Since the earliest version was pretty primitive, I wouldn't speculate whether Hermida saw the need to invest his ideas in subsequent "official" versions though it is obviously possible. The delay did come a little later though. It seemed influenced by a Deville layout as did later reverb models. Though that may have been coincidental I do recall Mr Deville was supposedly in the wings on some LP efforts. If I had to guess...
There have been a lot of variations of the dirt pedals in particular. It is usually, but not always, the variations that showed up on sales. And the variations that seem to me to not be Hermida mods. Just kind of a hunch I admit. No doubt the core Hermida designs are solid and I hope they continue to be available. And while all is subject to taste, I never found a variation that added sonic value to the original design.
Well this is the danger when a company mixes the person(ality) and the business. There are people here that mailed in pedals to be repaired and have been ghosted and they absolutely should have an answer or be returned regardless of personal woes. You can’t have it both ways.That and the wild statements about LP’s business operations.
Some companies reaction to covid has been ridiculous. The eyeglasses I got last August broke (a warranty defect issue, not carelessness) the week my optometrist shut down. Not a single person in the office to handle customer calls and issues. Having on person in the office poses zero risk of transmission. It took me three weeks to get a copy of my prescription so I could order a new pair from an online company. I'm an essential worker and had to get by with an old prescription that was really not effective.My Dr Z amp DIED , blew a capacitor.
I couldn't read the numbers on the capacitor.
So, I contacted Dr Z asking what the spec numbers are, since I can't find any schematics on the Maz 18.
They contacted me 2 weeks later telling me they will PROVIDE the specs when the Corona Pandemic is over.
So true. I found my mother dead one day. I still managed to call work and let them know I would not be in for at least a week. Barring a medical issue preventing it, there is no excuse for zero communication.His personal issues don't interest me, but his inability to communicate with his customers about their repairs is poor business.
Thank you @sundog964 .. for me as well...or we could realize that people deserve privacy in their personal lives. Sean has graced us with some magnificent gear. That is separate from his personal life. Let the man be.
I’m jonesing for another SNS, but am more concerned about his wellbeing.
I’ve owned over 50 Lovepedals over the years. Still have most of them and they are flawless.. And are used all the time...had 1 go in for a repair/mod cause it had to much gain.. Came back 2 weeks later, no charge... Sean is going through a tough time . Please cut him some slack. I do hope he takes care of all the repairs first......I find it strange that some folks are perplexed that because they’ve had impeccable customer service that it’s surprising someone else could have subpar service. Nobody is perfect 100% of the time. Live long enough and it will become clearer.
