It's coming from a Japanese seller based in Tokyo. Shipping via EMS, so I hope it won't take longer than a week.

That Les Paul Studio was actually really light, like 7.9 lbs or something. I think it had a thinner, weight-relief body though

That Jazz Bass. Got to love an Aerodyne. Just get a decent strap that doesn't cut in and you should be sweet.

There are two other versions on ebay right now, but I don't know anything about those.
I started working on the schematic for that on a train trip home yesterday but I fell asleep on the way after a 9 hour band meeting You can PM me what it is if you want to keep it quieter. I should be able to reverse a generic version of it, the chip will just be a simple TL072 or equivalent.

I have to send the emails out to everyone after work. Think I should have the batches shipping out by end of next week or week after, finally.

(I really am probably just after recouping the funds for a digital matrix switching system and in ear monitors at this moment)

Well hopefully the wood police won't go after it because of the fretboard. I was told I needed a permit now to import anything with wood, but it seems to be nonsense. We'll find out soon though...

what the pedal is? It's not a secret, especially since there's practically no information about it. It's an Mt'lab fat humster.

AS USED BY... actually, I don't know. I still think it's intended for guitar, but we'll see how it sounds.



No clue what the animato was intended for, and it sounds horrible with guitar.

I have not received an email. Am I still on your list?

Ah sweet, that'll help, I'll scour and see what exists for that particular pedal.

I'll write up emails in a few hours. It was meant to be yesterday but a 2-3 hour band meeting went for 8-9 hours yesterday and apparently has now become a priority too.

That wasn't the email I was expecting!

But it's all good. When you say purchases are limited to one per person, I can still buy the voskhod when that's available... right?

Yeah Voskhod will be available in a month or so though.

I know it wasn't what people were expecting. At this point, I've wired 24 boards for testing and so far so good. I didn't want to get people to pay until I can absolutely guarantee I can ship it straight away.

Good good. How much of a difference is there compared to the original version?

Somehow I don't think EMS (which becomes USPS on this end) is going to go through the trouble of checking whether it contains rosewood or not. But I don't know. Is this second hand? It seems that most Fenders that are available to the US from Japan are second hand, but I have seen one or two dealers that have new ones.

These work better than both of the last revisions. It responds better to actives, like the original pedal. The first revision handled them well but had some saturation, the second used one powerful silicon instead of two germs and reduced noise but with really hot pickups added extra unwanted clipping that I didn't favour and seemed a touch brighter.

There is the gate and blend now anyway to help that. Odd too since I just bought a Switchblade GL, so mixing 3 signal chains from one bass is easy without blends.

It's brand new, probably NOS forgotten somewhere. Not much information on the Lake Placid Blue available, the 4 usual colors are Black, Red, Dolphin Grey and Gun Metal Blue. According to some German website, LPB was a limited FSR edition, so I really hope the wood police won't touch it. Today's a federal holiday so I wouldn't know if it's stuck in customs for a couple more days

Also, this is the seller. Asked him if the Animato was still available in Japan - apparently he found one brand new. I can't justify that price though (animated + voskhod, and then some), but it'll probably be gone in a couple days? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Human-Gear-A..._qi=RTM2247625

That price is about accurate. I paid a touch less, but it involved some importing from Japan through a middle man.

You don't need the original. My version sounds no different and has the blend control so you aren't scratching your head with where the low's disappeared to, it was the number one request with them.

Yeah, I want yours more anyway. Smaller enclosure and all

How's the Voskhod compared to the Russian Big Muff? I'll get that one too, but I was kinda hoping that the enclosure would be black so it'll look cool next too the Animated

I think I have the prototype of the Voshkod right? I love it! It's beefy as hell, especially with a clean blend.

No?



It arrived this afternoon - I'm going to try it with both guitar and bass tomorrow. The transistor definitely still has a label on it, and it looks like whatever was on the opamp was intentionally scratched off, but a tiny bit still remains. Probably not enough to find out what it is though.

Also, it appears to be dated 1999 on the inside, so I guess these haven't been made in a while.
