    "okay, here's a rough version of two videos, absolutely huge (24 megs each), and you have to (on mac) control-click them and select download to drive in order to see them. good luck! "

    I watched one of the videos and was really impressed with the idea. It is probably the first ring modulator I've heard that I would find useful for more than just interesting sound effects.

    I agree. Fabulous engineering, wonderful design, no sounds in it that I care for. :p

    God, that thing is bloody brilliant. I especially love the arpeggio at the beginning of the Demo video.

    Now how do I avoid buying one?!?!? "I mean, it costs a small fortune, right?"

    And I just wrote a new song the other day that the Ringtone would sound *perfect* on...

    I think I'll even run it through a Johnny Octave!

    And the new LED and paint job for the SHO!!!

    AND the Tremorama that I asked Z. for over a year ago!!!!

    I can't take it. My daughter isn't going to college because of Zachary Vex. :D

    Psychotically amazing ring mod. I wish he has done the random mode after spending so much time tuning the chords in on the "setup" video. Man, I hope that doesn't cost TOO much. What can I sell? Hmmm

    I love Zvex stuff but this pedal is certainly not for me....way too much knob twiddling instead of actual playing. I prefer to play the guitar into pedals not play the pedals with my guitar.

    Most certainly; I was merely stating my preference.

    Can't wait to get my hands on this badboy... ideas for industrial/modern/avante garde stuff are running rampant through my head... even stuff for modern pop interludes... SO MUCH FUN!!! It's like a Chorus pedal gone wrong when you mix some clean signal in!

    The bad news is that it will be his most expensive effect ever. I thought the Loop Junky was overpriced, so I don't think I'll get to own the Ringtone. But Tap Tempo for an additional price... so tempting!

    I think I read something along the lines of $350 over at Harmony-central.
