    No problem, I'm VERY happy with my Signa Drive (cmatmods) and don't need anything else. I don't have that need for D#mble tones

    I've seen an ungooped zendrive before and there's not much to it. Not that it doesnt sound good though.

    Hey Alf, post #40 is pretty good too:

    http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showpost.php?p=3688010&postcount=40

    I've known Alf a long time...anyone trying to rip him off would be asking for bad karma--Alf is one of the nicest guys in this business and he has helped out a lot of builders.

    As Alf says: "...There are good reasons why I spent 5 years developing my stuff..." Reward the honest guy who slaves over the design of the pedal, not the guy who claims "he has the schematic" and tries to ride on Alf's wave.

    right on.

    I wonder why anyone would pay even $50 for that p.o.s. on ebay? You have no idea what's in the box or if it even works. Then some dumb kid buys it and it sounds bad and he starts replying on the forums how the Zendrive sounds terrible...:jo

    Cloning something for your own use to mess around at home with is something but to clone a unique piece of work and then use the original unit's name to try and sell it online is very low IMO. I don't know too much about the legality of it, but that is some seriously bad karma mojo to have hanging around one's neck so let the hand of fate do their thing:(
