    Yep. Love the man, but he does have a habit of retiring pedals :)

    I guess all good things must come to an end...

    It looks like he's taking a break from Big Muff's to concentrate on other things. I wonder what's next for Mr. Skreddy? There were rumors of a Skreddy Delay, but I haven't heard anything more about it since last summer.

    Hehe... I've got #20 and #109... so one with the "original" transistors, and one with the new transistors. Neither are for sale ;) . I understand why he decided to d/c the new pedal, although I must say it's not bad by any stretch! Yes, A/B'd with the original I prefer the original, but if I wasn't directly A/B-ing, I'd probably have a harder time choosing which I liked better. BUT - I understand where Marc is coming from; if it isn't up to par with his ideas of the sound he's going for, then it should be d/c'd until the right components are available.

    I'm sure Marc would have continued building it if he could. I give him credit for pulling the plug instead of putting out a Pink Flesh that's too different from the original to be called a Pink Flesh, or simply inferior.

    Ha I read your title and thought "sounds like a personal problem to me".

    I was all ready to buy one when he put it back up. I certainly understand his reasoning for discontinuing and commend him on his decision for pulling a successful product as I am sure it was a very difficult decision. I think we would all agree we would rather not buy a new version of this pedal which did not sound as good as the original. I can't wait to see what he releases next.

    Ha Ha! It is kind of a personal problem, seeing that I sold my Pink Flesh and was looking to get another. However, the Pink Flesh you're referring to hasn't been a problem in the last 11+ years of marriage! Thanks for your concern though! :AOK

    All remaining orders will be filled using the original transistors. Only Ben has that version (and a certain dealer in a certain city/state/nation/island has a few), and I intend to return them all to original specs if their owners will consent.

    Does that mean there are only about 100 of these things floating around? I'm surprised by that; I figured there would be many more.

    Wow - I feel kinda honored.
    That said, I just shot you an email to see if it can be modded back to original spec. :D

    (now get to work on that delay!! :AOK)

    Whoa, that was a close call. I ordered a Pink Flesh in December. It will be my first Skreddy and my first Muff style pedal. I'm stoked that Marc is filling existing orders!

    No.

    I think you're confusing the Top Fuel and the Pinkmour which were different in box cosmetics only.

    The TF and PF are very different... the former sounding more like a distortion (Delicate Sound of Thunder), and the latter having more muffy, fuzz characteristics (The Wall, and I'd say actually, modern David Gilmour 'Remember That Night' fuzz tones).
