    I know what you're saying and apply that to builders all the time, but when Sean does this I really think he ends up with something improved or refined for a particular type of player.
    He'll use the previous R&D as a launchpad.
    I used to think the original Zendrive was perfect for me. It still is amazing and it's not leaving my main board, but now I have a White Zendrive that is even better for my set-up.
    All of the Zendrives Alf and Sean have done are quite different to me, way beyond a box swap.
    Sometimes the new version isn't better for me, but others find it to be the best for them.

    We need a dual fuzz from LP. Not a fuzz/boost, but a dual fuzz.

    I thought this thread was for people who actually like lovepedal and hermida and appreciate the sales.

    My big complaint about SNS sales is that everything I want is sold out before I even got a cup of coffee this morning! They need to move Michigan farther west.

    Not much better here in California. Sold out before 9AM. Didn’t even get coffee yet.

    On the other hand, to me, the normal Amp11 is perfect. If I wanted an 808, I’d buy an 808 (or variant).

    The benefit to being out west is you guys are still up when they start and get a chance to loot while we are all asleep. Plus minus to everything generally.

    Is there a pool going yet for when an Amp 808 will show up on reverb and how much they’ll be asking?

    I had a candy green small box Amp 11 over a year ago. Didn't like the form factor or the need for a little screwdriver for the EQ controls. Sold it for a big, plain white box Amp 11!

    Minimum of 2x original price so $250 at least first one.

    I agree with this. The recessed tone knobs were impractical for live use. Great sounding pedal but I had to let it go as well.

    Is the Amp 808 a straight up 808 plus the COT? Or is the drive side a blend of the OD11 and an 808?

    Hey Dee-troit!
    Not sorry I missed out on the 808. I have never bonded well with a Tube Screamer. Had one for years, actually it was a clone, a Route 66 and it was my only OD. Tried a bunch of OD pedals since then and the only ones I've really liked are my LPs.

    Still have two klones but all of the rest of my dirt is from Sean and Alf.
    Before Lovepedal I had a few Keeley OD and fuzz pedals. Believe it or not I have never tried a King of Tone or even a Timmy.

    If I don't bond mine will go up for $140 with free shipping. (cost + shipping + packaging and gas to post office)
