Black Acid #1?

Post by Sonofthunder » Fri Jan 03, 2014 3:06 pm

Recently obtained a EFE Black Acid from a friend in the UK who got it through Ebay and he was told it was the first EFE Black Acid made, so it was a test version to see how they would turn out.

This is some of the text the seller on Ebay sent to my mate:
Hi man
Yeah, I used to work for DAM and all of the first batch of Black Acid and Dope Priests were built by me. This is serial number #001 and my "keeper".
I've fallen on hard times recently and need to sell gear, so... sorry about the price - nah. it has undergone less transit that a commercial sale pedal, in fact it's still in the building they were all assembled in. I don't even want to sell it tbh man... etc etc etc

Cheers

Is this really the Black Acid #1?? I thought all pedals were built by either Dave of Linzi?

Hope someone can verify this BA's story, would appreciate it :badteeth:

Ahhh perfect, thanks for that :tu:

And the serial no. is probably build date + number of the pedal? (seems logical)

Yep, build date then number. Linzi built some as well and I think maybe the Captain did too. Whichever way, the Black Acid is an incredible sounding fuzz and one of my favourites.

I'm loving it too, but since I use it maxed out about 100 out of 100 times I'm very tempted to get the Black Dust, don't know if I'll hold on to this one... Future will tell :badteeth: :badteeth:

Sad to hear the builder has fallen upon hard times. His work looks top notch. This is big on my want list.
