    Sean used to have a pic on his site but no link to buy but now it's gone completely. I checked every day to see if it was active but no luck. Is the PP no longer being considered by Sean? Anyone know?

    I just got my Purple Plexi delivered to me at work. I know I got in really quickly with my order.

    I think Sean just took it off his site because he's flat out building other stuff. Unfortunately a brawl ensued on another thread over this already.

    I'll plug my PP in tonight, but for now all I can say is that it's a really cool purple colour and the writing on it looks like liquid paper!!!

    It was up for a short time, but he gets inundated with orders so he has to pull stuff back from the site to catch up on production. I ordered one but I have no idea when I might get it. I'm sure it'll be back at some point.

    I think he only wanted to make a limited number of them...I talked to him the other day and he said that he wanted to mail all 10 out at the same time....don't know if that means he only took 10 orders or if he is working on ten right now.

    FYI guy's, Sean changes his site weekely. It mirrors what pedal batches he's working on at the time.

    Another tidbit, he changes the enclosures too (quite often).

    Mine arrived today...first impression would be... :drool

    You take a Lil China Cot, add extra gain and a volume control ala Lo Driver...throw in a little resonance control to tweak for humbuckers/singles and you have the Purple Plexi. The 'Intensity' knob should be called a 'growl' control...it really give you that illusive plexi bark. Wind it forward to thicken up thinner/weaker pickups our back it off for removing excess low mids/flub. It's an absolutly stunning pedal and has all the touch sensitivity of Seans other pedals and has a nice tight low end presence.

    Top work Sean...i'll take three more :AOK
