    He did recently get his wife on to help with paperwork and other business matters, but ultimately he builds each pedal by himself. If I had the money, I'd jump on the next Echoczar that came up on the Emporium.

    Do you have to pay upfront for Cornish pedals?

    Wait a sec, I don't even see the TES listed on the Cornish site.

    Nope...only once he's started building them. There's a list for the TES...he told me about 12 months wait which was roughly 6 months back. I'm watching the clock tick on this one.

    I did some searching and the price is $1,600 for a TES, apparently. I think I'd rather just wait until my Echoczar is ready or one becomes available on the Emporium. My Diamond ML will work for the time being. Also, my wife would kill me if she found out I spend $1,600 on a pedal.

    I've been waiting over 15 months for my Halophaze so that should give you some idea.

    I still think he should get help with the pedals. 2+ years for the pedal!! Crikey! We the orders he has in line he could start a factory. Well, I guess I'll try and forget about it again for a while...

    I'm at 13 months on the Echo wait and I'm at 15 months on the Powerglide. Haven't heard much from him on either.

    Yeah 11/05 here, but from what I hear its worth the wait. Maybe one day in the near future I'll be able to tell you.

    I think I'm gonna' be at the two year mark this april... *think* being the key word :)

    I'm in no rush, though...
    Ed's a great guy who makes a great product. It's worth the wait. I've got two of his pedals thus far, 3rd on the way, and I'm just loving it.
    I'd also be curious about hearing how he stands with the VFM's & Powerglides...

    really, they were handbuilt by 1 person, like the Echoczar? wow, i didnt know that...

    well if you think the Timefactor sounds anything like the Echoczar... tell ya what, go ahead and enjoy your DD-20, Line6 delay, Timefactor, whatever you got... theyre all pretty much the same :rotflmao

    I don't get this post at all. What does the production of Nasa or Donald Trump have to do with the way one man (not a corporation or gov. agency) hand builds guitar effects?

    I'm pretty sure the people waiting for the Echoczar will be enjoying the delay's they currently have as well.

    No one is buying anything it's just an e-mail to get on the list all pre-paid orders have been filled. BTW I own a Echoczar and it's not only worth the money it's worth the wait too.
