    So I've got some transistors on the way, but I think I've made up my mind, I just don't think I'm a MKII man and the added bass of the MKIII is very appealing. My buddy brought a Colorsound back from England and it sounds great, but they're hard to come across here and quite expensive as well.

    So what else is out there as far as MKIII clones and variations go? In my short search I've stumbled across a few:

    Colorsound Thin Case Tonebender Reissue
    Retroman Tonezilla
    Prescription Electronics Yardbox
    MJM 3-knob Britbender

    The clips of the MJM sound awesome, but what else is there and what have you fallen in love with?

    Skin Pimp is making some waves here lately.

    Pro Analog MKIII is badass.

    How do I find out about the skin pimp stuff? I saw the big thread today but didn't get too far into it. What's the pricing like?

    Isn't the Fulltone Soulbender an MKIII? A great fuzz.

    Where do you find those DeMarco's? or do you? I thought he was some random eBay seller and just disappeared one day and screwed a few people over or something like that. Or was that someone else?

    I have no specifics. I ended up with one in a trade a while back and it was a killer sounding MKIII. That's all I know.
