    Yeah, you read the title right. It looks like Tavo is finally giving in to all the blue fans out there. These boxes always look better completed but I just saw this posted this on Instagram. The only other blue one was darker and I believe was a one off for charity.

    I understand that. Shoot, I don't have my first one.

    Retirement is great, but the definition of "disposable income" has changed! Lol

    Having played a Mystery Brain I know they are something very special. Lately I’ve been running my Atomic Brain with a Volante. The Atomic Brain and Mystery Brain are the same pre and in essence, my favorite pedal. A new or used Atomic Brain is a great alternative for fixed incomes.

    Oh, I remember my "school days."

    Broke as heck, but had my Martin and all the fringe benefits that came with playing back then. Lol

    I’m assuming digital currency from a plastic card still works for now?

    If you’re speaking of this one on his Facebook page...

    That be the only one he did in that blue for charity. So I doubt we’ll see it again out of principle.

    If you’re new to Nocturne he does an auction on eBay every fall time frame. I’m not sure if it’s always a Mystery Brain or a one off. 100% of it goes towards a charity but I forget which one. I believe he started doing it after a member here (or the other G forum) who’s wife or child went through some difficult times. I would assume to look for it later this year as well.

    Looks like a Artsy photo of the new blue Brain that’s a coming. That’s a nice blue shade from what I can tell.

    That's the first view I've gotten of the "slate" chickenheads on the standard version. I was afraid they'd be too dark, but they look good in that (brightly lit) photo.

    Edit: I recognize how dumb I am to worry about fifty shades of gray chickenheads on an engineering marvel like this effects box, but it's what I see in the photos, and sometimes I can't hold back my see-something-say-something.
