    I’ve got mine. By far my favorite pedal and if I had to slim down to only one pedal... Cherry Sparkle Mystery Brain be the one. :)

    Not finding a drop down menu to buy one. Probably a good thing since I am drinking tonight. :) Love the Detroit Casket couldn't figure out to to pull the trigger.

    Well friend, let me help you out for a minute. The Cherry one is the third option on the scroll down pre-order menu. See below photo ;). If you haven’t tried one, the echo is really special. These recent ones have a loop jack on the side so you can place any pedals you want between the Brain and Echo. I used the below cable from Amazon. However I believe Tavo might sell a custom cable. The earlier generations didn’t have it.

    The Sinasoid cable is excellent quality and well worth the extra $$ IMO. Plus the guys at Sinasoid are great to deal with.

    Can I trade in my silver sparkle for one of these? I can't read it in anything other that flat white light.

    I do like the look of the silver. It’s like a Silver Bullet.

    You could always sell and buy a new one. Although that may not make much sense for the wallet.

    Im sure there are some around here that would love to trade for a silver sparkle instead of the green standard. That was metal silver w an extra baked on coat of clear w silver micro glitter. Enamel green is OEM for a classic re-301 feel but them sparklers are fun, and they always charge me more for the sparkle coat.

    True and a good idea. Hadn’t thought about it but someone might do an even trade where you cover your own shipping. It just might take a bit for someone to read the trade thread.

    Another option would be if you had the correct font and size... make a black lettered on clear background. Then simply peel and stick over white lettering.

    I got a bottle of Testors red sparkle (to go with the red knobs) enamel paint and a couple types of really small brushes. "Someday", I'll paint shadows under the letters to make them pop.

    There was a batch and they looked great.

    I hope Tavo doesn’t mind me putting this out there. From my PM I had before buying the Cherry Sparkle... my take away was not too expect many color variations on the Mystery Brain in the future. He loves changing it up but the majority of buyers want the green and the boxes are painted in large batches. That’s just makes these non OG green more special to me. If you’re seriously into silver, PM him. Maybe he can dig up a silver one somehow. Or pickup one of these Cherry Sparkle ones.

    That’s pretty dope.

    Nah, I’m real happy with my green one. I wouldn’t care if it was a plain tin box with the text written with sharpie on masking tape.
