Just got word that mine shipped yesterday (April 8), so probably another week or so until it gets here. I've got a Black & Gold and a couple of standards to compare it to, I'll post my thoughts when I recieve it. :cheers:

Excellent, I'll look forward to hearing your findings... assisted with gratuitous pictures of course :badlove:

Anybody get their Darkie yet? I just want to make a pre-emptive strike here :help:
To anyone who gets one and it's not right for them, please pm me or email me directly at core9a@netscape.net. I am dying for one of these bad boys. :drool2:

Here's a pic of mine (along with some other sparkly DAM's). Excuse the goofy picture, I was atempting to be all artsy :doh: .

I'll post my impressions of it Monday after I get a chance to play it more (and after all this Fuzz Sound MKIII frenzy dies down a bit). Initial thoughts are: 1. This sound is positively crushing, all of you Doom/Sludge guys will piss yourselves over this pedal. 2. The pedal itself is fucking gorgeous (pics really don't do it justice). Sickle really did a great job on the artwork, definitely one of the coolest looking DAM's I own. Oh yeah, also, its noticeably heavier than the Black & Gold Meathead. Off to play more :crackjam:

YES PLZ. :badteeth:
After messing with Meat DLX for a week, I am getting really interested in what Dark sounds like.
Meathead can be very addictive.... I know that now...
I am almost thinking about selling some of my BigMuffs Coz... I don't use them much after having meathead....


Anyone know if Sickle graphic was limited to the first batch? or can we still order them with Teh "DARK" graphic ?

Sickle wrote: Here's the deal with the graphics:

The enclosures for future Darks will be *slightly* larger, so a new silk screen will need to be made. Because of this, I'm going to take advantage of that fact and make a few refinements to my layout that will make it a little different, but not by much.

The first ones made due to this change will one day be worth thousands of dollars.

:dance:

thanks for the info. . . May is so close now.. only 2 weeks !! :shocked:

am I the only one who's excited about DARK meat as much as MK3 around'ere ? :cthulhu2:
