    I have a drive pedal coming out in the next few months that is more transparent than my Ubangi Stomp drive, or my Fez. Its gonna be a good'n! btw... I did a run of silver sparkle pedals a while back..ok like 7 yrs ago.
    But I dont think Billy Zoom has any of my pedals, he likes to give me a hard time. :) Brian Setzer does have some of my pedals, here are two I made him several yrs ago. Silver sparkle a
    a lime gold sparkle.

    My Nocturne budget is shot for this year, anxiously waiting for some arrivals, but I would love to hear more about this new drive!

    Whats interesting about JD using my pedal.. he still has no clue about who makes it, he just uses it on stage and one of the knobs is cracked but he
    keeps stomping the hell out of it all night long. :) I tried to get a hold of him but apparently its not easy. I spoke to Jimmy Sutton (the bassist) at a tiki bar
    we both happened to be at for a Deke Dickerson show, about getting the pedal straightened up but he wasnt tuned into what JD uses. Whaddaya do? Just glad
    he relies on it and it makes my own kids proud. Someday I'll get to sit and talk gear w him, especially about that TK Smith guitar he has! oooh.
