    I think it was the El Peskys, not Mystery Brains... i was tempted but when I saw the no knobs, i knew something was up.. i think someone on this site bought one.

    It was a box of El Pescadoro that got stolen in shipping on the way back to Tavo. But it was the the blue and white color theme. Tavo has said there is a chip or something that hadn’t been put it yet so my guess is maybe they don’t sound 100%. I’m glad I purchased my blue and white one directly.

    yes that was a stolen mail situation and even weirder when a partial shipment w a bag of burnt trash and shipping box was included. I had to wipe down all the pedals w vinegar and let them sit in the garage for a week to get rid of the campfire smell. the other missing "half" the pedals showed up on ebay. Quite funny as they didnt have knobs, no back back plates screwed on and "wrong" chips. :) I tried to buy them back explaining what the situation was and the individual didnt care at all. said he bought it in a bulk sale from the post office. Those were from the run of evel knieval white with blue screen print

    Was it the darker blue like the first batch or the lighter blue that came shortly later? I remember seeing it on eBay with no knobs. Although I thought maybe there was a backplate with no screws.

    I’m guessing if you’re taking time for clips that you’re giving it a thumbs up. I’m looking forward to hearing them.
