“Made from the cheapest finest platinum looking substance on the black market. It may or may not actually be a Chinese knockoff. Who cares. What I would or wouldn’t do is, stack this particular pedal with a Russian Muff. This pedal is excellent, you see this is made in the United States of America. Crafted with the best hand selected USA components outsourced from China. A lot of people-I don’t want to sound trivial- but a lot of people are using these digital amp modelers, very unattractive it’s weird.. You see these players with their Ax FX because they can’t wire a pedalboard properly. And I hate it. I’m a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends that happen to use amp modelers, but I’m a traditionalist. They’re good friends of mine. No matter what you do - pedals, no pedals - it doesn't matter. You have people that are mentally ill. And they're gonna come through the cracks. And they're going to do things that people will not even believe are possible.” Due to the context of this pedal they are made to order. Allow 1-3 weeks shipping time.
