    Just wondering if anyone has received their Lunar Module yet ?

    I have shipping details on mine, but being in Australia, it'll be a week or so away.... I guess it means some have shipped.

    I think some have also gone out through ToneFactor.

    I'd love to hear the thoughts of anyone who's received one.

    Still waiting on mine. I called Marc yesterday and he said he's been behind because he's dealing with some other issues. He said he would be making a doubled effort to get things out the door.

    I, too, would like to hear some comments.

    I got an email from Skreddy today. My Lunar Module is shipping. Can't wait to compare it to my other Skreddys!

    I received my Lunar Module about a week ago.
    Just amazing....:eek:
    It captures Gilmour's tones as close as any single pedal possibly could IMO.
    To be honest, I don't consider it to be a really versatile pedal... for me anyway. It does the Dark Side tones better than I ever would have dreamed, and that's what it does !

    Thanks Marc - this pedal is really a testament to your talents.

    I'd like to get one very soon

    Marc offers now only 2 pedals, doesn't he? Anyone knows if he's going to come with something new? I wish he would make Creamy Dreamer pedal:D

    I'm going to email skreddy about this, but how different is this than the mayo. I'm a confirmed skreddy believer, the mayo and screwdriver as of now. I'd buy another if it was significantly different.

    The Mayo is Muff based, the lunar Module is build around the Screw Driver circuit, so it's completely different to the Mayo (also very differnt sounding to the Screw Driver).

    Zillie - BYOC have the Beaver 2.0 version kit out now, and there are instructions on the forum for the Creamy Dreamer mods.

    Could you, or anyone else, compare it to the Screw Driver please?

    Dave, the Screw Driver is mostly an Overdrive, although it's got some Fuzz components at some settings.... consider it a nicely voiced, touch responsive Overdrive.

    The Lunar Module is all Fuzz.
    At some settings it can be spitty and nasty, but it's best settings (to me anyway) are pretty smooth with that violin sort of sustain you'd get from a Tonebender.
    The attack and voicing really sound a LOT like Gilmour on "Dark Side".
    I don't know what Gilmour was using (maybe someone can tell us), but I imagine it was more than one pedal - probably a compressor in there at least. Anyway, the Lunar Module gets you there, including great sustain.
    You have to have the chops to get the best from it IMO, and to be honest, I really don't... but when my son played it, it was spot on !

    Cool, thanks. I'm very familiar with the Screw Driver, it's one of my favorite OD/distortion pedals. One of the things I really love about the SD is it's powerful tone controls and the LM appears to have similar controls. I think I'm going to have to get one.

    Yep, the Lunar Module can go from quite Bassy to Biting.
    Then you have the 2 trimpots to fine tune it further to your taste.

    The Pink Flesh is a Muff derivative, so a different style of Fuzz i would say. i haven't tried a PF personally.

    I currently use a Pink Flesh for the Time solo. Sounds less "spitty" (as someone previously quoted) but still has some Fuzz bite. I also use on the outro solo in Pigs..

    My question is : Can the Screwdriver achieve the boosted tones of the intro to Pigs...? According to Gilmourish.com a Colorsound Power boost is doing it...I use a Prescription RX Overdriver (CSPB clone), but it doesn't seem quite dark enough...Based on that statement, how many Screwdriver users are getting a good Animals rhythm?

    Would a Screwdriver and Pink Flesh on the same board be redundant?
