    In the moment,.. hopefully.
    Have faith. I had been wanting a believe and thanksgiving before this one I was out of town with the whole wife’s family. We were walking around an outside Mall in Tennessee and it popped up on the SNS. (That one was an epic SNS). I started whooping laughing and ordering. The whole family thought I had lost it.

    Stay faithful.

    The magic boy has a way.

    Black Magic ZENDRIVE II and 5e3 shipped. Anyone knows how the black magic compares to the regular Zendrive?

    I snagged the '18 germ a while ago. You're going to love it!
    The tops for me are my two BBB07's, one with a OC75 and the other with a Raytheon. I really believe the handwiring makes a difference.
    Also had a BBB13 and BBB11 ... the BBB18 smokes them both! Enjoy.:aok

    Lots of gain and smooth is how I have heard the Black Magic Zen described. Have not played one myself. I have the Red one and a White one coming soon.

    Does anyone know if the COT/Eternity stack has ever been in a previous SNS? If so, about how much did it cost? Thanks.

    So what’s the characteristics of the Black Magic Zen II as compared to the other Zen models?
    When I bought it, I assumed it was just a regular Zen with a black paint job :oops:
    Who has experience with one?

    Hmmm.....Guess I must've ordered late in the game. Call me a fool, but, I'm optimistic that I'll get one before the week is out at least.
    And usually I'm a pessimist by nature. But: :D:D

    Got my shipping notice for the OD11 and BM Zen!

    Looking forward to A/B'ing the OD11 and my big-box Amp11. I also snagged a Black Rose Fuzz from Rose Pedals, and got the shipping notice just a few hours before getting the Lovepedal email. Going to be a fun weekend.

    Now if only the custom board that I ordered back in July would get finished and sent...

    Waiting to hear about my BC Siamese, as well! I would have thought they were just an over-produced item sittin' in a warehouse somewhere. Surprised it's taking this long. But, I'm optimistic that it'll show-up one of these days! I'd mentioned that I already have a black one that I paid close to full retail, so I already know how good it will sound. Incredible deal for $103 shipped!

    The '07's were so damn good.
    Have a '16 and played a '13; the '07 hands down had the mojo...

    I'm pretty sure I got my grey ghost for 50 bones and yes that was a couple years ago. It's quite different than the OD 11 side of the amp 11 and it's well worth having both in my opinion

    It's been fairly consistent for, what, a year now? I nabbed one the first night they were offered. They're about $137 IIRC.

    The one we affectionate refer to as Wallet Robber did a demo a few months back. He always give good overview and helpful suggestions for how the pedal might best be used.




    I have one coming... hoping for that shipping notice soon so I can post a dancing banana... and I missed it the first time they went for $50. I wasn't going to make that mistake again this last SNS. A few people have chimed in and love the character of the gain, definitely gainier than a regular Zen, and it begs for humbuckers. Our long lost friend wandering in the wilderness La Noise suggested that he gets a great Warren Haynes sound feeding the BMZ with humbuggies. I'd imagine that it has a little too much attitude to cop Robben Ford.
