How many of you bought the new Skreddy Lunar Module?

I placed my order last week. It just looks too good to pass up.

Who else is with me?

I think the London Fuzz Silicon does the job a lot better vs the samples of the Lunar module. I do love the graphics on the pedal though.

Skreddy makes some fine pedals and I love the look of the L.M. Gilmore's tone on "Time" is an old favorite of mine.

I think I feel a gas attack coming on...


:D

You guys have any ideas when these will be shipping? I've tried to email Marc, but haven't gotten any replies in a while.

When did you order?

.cant wait to get mine. :BOUNCE

anyone who have this pedal already? i'm wondering how it would sound on a Humbucker, most if not all of the Skreddy vids are on single coils.

Is this like a silicon fuzz face? Could be interested...
It's based on the silicon fuzzface Gilmour used on DSOTM's '' Time '' solo. Not sure if its a true Si fuzzface though since it has 3 BC-109c transistors.

Id order one soon if I were you... Skreddy just retired the Pink Flesh pedal yesterday
Wow...
Granted, I have both versions of the Pink Flesh and do like the 'original' version a bit better, but the 'new' version wasn't bad at all and I could see some people even preferring it. Also the differences between the 2 I'm sure would have been a bit smaller if I didn't have both right in front of me, being able to A/B them directly.

This is from the news section of his site.....

Retiring the Pink Flesh rather than re-formulating it

It's always been my policy to not continue a pedal line that (in my opinion) depends upon a particular transistor's personality for its signature tone, once their supply has run out. I was planning on continuing the Pink Flesh after I ran out of its transistors and using modern parts tweaked for the same target application (i.e.; it has to have a certain 70's feel, not a modern feel).
After several rounds of experimentation, I've found that of course I can get plenty of nice Big Muff tones out of any number of different circuit permutations and various types of parts. But nothing that particularly satisfied my target application, considering the time constraint I'm under to release it. So I've decided to backpedal on my previous idea and that it is much simpler for me and fairer to all my customers to only have one version of the Pink Flesh out in the wild. No confusion over versions and dates and parts, just one Pink Flesh pedal. When it's gone, it's gone, just the same as the Mayo and the ? Lady.
For the time being I'm going to give the Big Muff design a rest and concentrate on getting out orders and finishing up another major project that's been on the back burner for several months.
I've determined that the cache of transistors I've accumulated is adequate for filling all pending orders for the Pink Flesh and Mayo and ? Lady pedals.

Wonder if that means he is going to finish up his delay pedal. Glad to see a guy sticking to his own high quality control instead of just keeping the pedals going with different components.

Bummer that it's discontinued. In anticipation of 1) my addiction to Skreddy pedals, and 2) not being able to pick up a Pink Flesh anymore, I just picked one up.

HIGHLY dissagree. I had the London2 and (like any fuzzface) it takes a combination of a lot of things to make it get that DSOTM tone. With the Lunar Module, it's instantly there.
