Meathead History

Post by warhorse » Mon Jun 25, 2012 2:13 am

Does anyone have a comprehensive Meathead history?

There seems to be a lot of variance upon a common theme, but it's one of the D*A*M pedals that has always interested me.

Dan,

Yeah, I saw that video and that's what piqued my interest. I know there's grey hammerite, Red Baron, B&G's, Darks, Deluxes, sparkly Deluxes, M13, M25's, pink ones, psychedelic ones and so on. Just trying to find out what was used in each series and how they were tuned to try and find the one for me. I liked the first one and the psychedelic one in that vid.

Why don't we make this a thread where we post our Meatheads, their numbers and guts?
and basically make this THE Meathead history thread?

or not...
it's up to you guys.
Oh, DB? That's just slang for Dandy Big muff collector.

Would the Mods be able to arrange them into a chronological order as they are posted?

Captain: do you have a photo of each batch that you make? would you be cool about letting someone have these to sort and post?
