    Anyone know how to reach Stephen? I think I just killed my Leona V2, having forgotten it’s isolated power requirement. I Y-cabled it to a Rimrock Mythical Overdrive, and now it won’t power up.

    Appears his old website and email address have been taken down. Still around?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    I have an email address from an old communication with him:

    info@stephendouglasdesign.com

    Don't know if it's still valid though! I think he is a member here as well, but i can't recall his username...

    Good luck!

    Thanks, Fred. That’s the address I used, and it was kicked back as undeliverable. No website either. I did find a Facebook page, but it too appears inactive. Hope he’s still around as he made some good stuff.

    Since my original post, I’ve tinkered with the pedal a bit more, and got it working. Seems its circuit requires 1/4” plugs in both the input and output jacks to activate. Odd. If I ever knew that, I’d since forgotten.

    Anyway, your response is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again and regards,
    George

    He's a member here and has posted in the last couple months that I've seen. I don't remember his forum name, though.

    Stephen's TGP nickname is @sparky_8 . He was here a few days ago. So hopefully he'll get back to you.

    Just read the rest of the thread. Glad you didn't kill it!

    For anyone that runs across this looking for me, my Facebook may be inactive, but I still receive messages there.

    Thanks, Stephen. Trust all is well. When I thought I’d broken my Leona, panic and heartbreak ensued.

    All fine now. Best regards!

    Thanks David. All is well with me and mine. It's wild, I've been more busy with work during covid than before. I feel blessed.

    Really glad to hear it worked out. I've been there before! Enjoy and always feel free to reach out.
