    I put my name on the waitlist in February 2018. Anyone know how much longer I will have to wait.
    Also any suggestions on the options I should get.
    Thanks

    You're about 7/8 months away I think. Orders placed in June 2017 are the latest ones to ship.

    It’s almost 3 years. Ordered mine this past weekend and got on the list May 27, 2017. So right at 35 months. You have about 9 months left unless they speed up.

    I went for what seems to be consensus on used market - high gain red, toggle switch, and normal color. I like all my Aman pedals, but I’m honestly not too wild on ODs so preparing for the scenario in which I turn it into other gear.

    Oh wow, I did not realise it had jumped forward that much! I'm beginning of July, so not far away now! Going blue, 4 jack, high gain red.

    So since I just got on the list this year, by the time my name comes up the folks in the elder care center will tell me and I'll just go "HUH? Where's 'Tone'? "

    Am sure that C-19 will have an impact on production rate too....

    I believe most of his staff are still working at home building pedals . I could be wrong but the waitlist seems to have moved along quite well these past few months.

    I wonder how long the KOT wait would be if you removed all the people who were buying one simply to resell it for immediate profit?

    The list is going to get worse due to COVID

    When Dan & Mick went to visit from That Pedal Show they showed them making them and it looked like fairly specialist machinery (i.e. not what you'd have at home) in use...

    I remember that episode.

    I don't want to speculate too much but other than a drill press there wouldn't be any specialist machinery needed I don't think (and they could just drop off pre drilled enclosures to employees to be completed), Maybe a solder flume extractor but those can actually be set up fairly easily at home depending on the type of system. Other than that its pretty much just a soldering iron and parts.

    To be clear I don't know for sure if Analogman has employees working from home but I know some other pedal companies are doing that and I was under the impression Analogman was as well ( I feel like I've seen him mention it but I cant %100 remember).
