    Ed, are you the only person around here with this pedal?

    Surely some others have tried the Psionic stuff by now? Any reviews?

    I know there are more than a few TGP members who have 3.14s, but many of them are at NAMM right now. I expect they'll weigh in when they get back and recuperate from the show.

    While I am certainly biased :rolleyes: the clips are undoctored or polished. All but the first clip show the clean sound of the guitar and amp before the 3.14 is turned on.

    The last clip was a quick and dirty one I did just showing what the Clip and Voice switches do, with all the 3.14 controls at noon.

    Well, I started this thread and actually put down a deposit on 1/24 (to reserve one at the old $150 price, they're now $180 I believe). Almost 7 weeks ago....no 3.14 yet. Everytime I inquire with Lyle I'm told 2 more weeks, 2 more weeks, couple more weeks. Guess he's busy building amps???? There's other threads about this as well. Guess I just don't understand some things in this business...not naming any other companies.....

    Lyle, what is the wait time for one of these. Is it a germanium based fuzz? Also, could you describe the Z2 pedal. Thanks.

    jamison,

    As you mentioned, yes, I allowed you to make a deposit at the old price, and only received the balance two days ago. I don't understand your attitude about this.

    Todd,

    The wait time is currently 3 weeks on a 3.14. The 3.14 uses a combination of silicon and germanium diodes, for both Big Muff and Fuzzface-esque tones.

    I'll have more info on the Z2 up soon, I promise.

    Hi Lyle,

    I have no attitude, I'm just trying to buy a pedal here.

    First, I don't understand why you can't respond to customer emails (which I've yet to hear from you on my last 2 emails) but will jump on the forums to defend your reputation. You replied to every initial inquiry up until I put down the deposit.

    I've been asking for weeks now about the 3.14's and was ready to pay the balance whenever you had them available. You told me you would let me know when you had them ready. Still, the 2-3 times I have gotten in touch with you (last was a phone call several weeks ago), you tell me "a couple more weeks".

    Anyways, I'm patient and went ahead and paid up hoping you would go ahead and get one to me.

    I guess I just don't understand the non-communication issues and being put off some many times.

    Thanks for listening,
    Eric

    Eric,

    I'm sorry that you take it that way, but checking my emails, I have replied to all your messages. Your last two emails were on 3/4, to which I replied, and on 3/13, which was this past Sunday, and I didn't get a chance to reply before you posted this here on Tuesday.

    I hope I don't come across as angry, and I still very much appreciate your order.

    I guess I just get frustrated, because time spent on forums/emails is time I can't spend getting work done, and time spent getting work done creates "why doesn't Lyle email me?" threads. I wish I had a secretary.

    I am sincerely sorry I came across as unresponsive, and I wish I had phrased things differently in my post yesterday. Anyway, as soon as the 3.14 enclosures arrive, yours is going out, and I promise I won't spit in it.

    How many threads does it take to drag one builder through the mud? I've seen two today...

    Anyone heard from Lyle lately? I emailed him and PM'd him last week about a 3.14 that I've been waiting on but haven't heard anything; the last news I got from him 3 weeks ago was that the 3.14 was supposed to ship that week. I hope he's ok!

    -Ben

    I'm going to try getting my money back first ;)
    I just emailed and PM'd Lyle for a refund so we'll see what happens - I'm sure he's just busy at the moment.
    Life can get crazy at times!
