    My last email from Kevin, I thought, said that the pedal would go out at the end of this week, not arrive this week! Horray for poor reading comprehension!!!

    Woah it's red. Did you custom order it to be red, or did he just decide to make it that color?

    It's not custom it's just Kevin's new pedal. Carlygtr56 posted a clip of himself using the pedal on a cover of Hendrix's Machine Gun. It sounded so good, and the playing so amazing, I called up Kevin immediately and got on the waiting list. It was fast enough because when Kevin emailed me at the end of January he told me that I got one from the first batch. I wonder how many are in a pedal maker's batch?

    So far the thing sounds great. However, I can't really say anymore since I can't hear it too well. I've had the flu all week and my head's so stuffed up everything sounds like it's covered in cotton. I will when I can.

    Yeah I know but all his products are usually purple, this is the first I've seen of a different color, it looks nice...

    Holy hell indeed. The Maching Gun clip was discussed months ago when the pedal first broke cover. I don't know how to provide links but the Google search gave me this:

    http://www.thegearpage.net/board/archive/index.php/t-314521.html

    And this might lead to the Machine gun clip. The playing is not to be believed!

    http://www.soundclick.com/bands/songInfo.cfm?bandID=343910&songID=5971884

    And DC/AC you're right I didn't even think of it before. I'm sick and thinking a little slow. On the KR website at www.krmusicalproducts.com Kevin explains that Hendrix was thought to have had a red faced fuzz with white knobs at several notable gigs like Woodstock and at the Fillmore with Band of Gypsies. That's why Kevin made this one red with white buttons. It's suppose to have more sustain and gain than a traditional fuzz face. If you check out his site click on "New Pedals!" at the menu and it's at the top of the page. He explains the story better than I.

    I have never owned a fuzz that I could dial in but that one sounds cool. I may have to check it out. Carlygtr is an amazing guitarist and can make anything sound spectacular.

    thanks for the post and enjoy your new pedal!!!

    What is your impression on the pedal so far?

    It seems like that it is only very few people who actually has experience with this pedal. I'm not saying that it doesn't sound good however, all the talk about it and just very few who has tried the thing makes a lot of hype. I would like to hear other peoples oppinion about it.

    I was wondering the same thing. It appears that he got himself banned...again. I missed the fireworks this time, so I have no idea what happened.
