Joe and the V&R divorce!

Post by fuzzlight » Wed Sep 29, 2010 9:04 pm

Ok, so this is the news…..I will try and keep it brief, ya know, long story short etc.
I no longer work for Vintage and Rare Guitars. :phew:
In fact my position there was terminated back in June, not great timing having just had a baby n'all. :shocked2:
Anyhoo it was most probably for the best and I have now set up my own small company "Joe's Pedals Ltd". The website will be up and running soon.

With massive thanks and cap doffing to Captain Dave I will continue to be the main source for D*A*M pedals. I still have full control of the wait lists so essentially there is no change except for who you pay! Invoices now come from Joe's Pedals Ltd and NOT Vintage and Rare.

During my 13 years at V&R it was myself that took care of and built up the pedal side of the business and I am sure the new staff there will keep it going….. :roll:
As for new enquiries I still get the requests for DAM that come from the V&R website so thats not a problem, however this will change once my website is operational. For other enquiries, list questions etc, pm me or email to:

As for the lists themselves, here are some stats: :coffee:
Drag'N'Fly running at 149 Wanted
Fuzzrong 121
Meathead Dlx 137
Rooster 145
Sonic Titan 123
Super Bee 176
1966 79
Meathead 125 (includes the old Meathead Dark list)
Fuzzsound MkIII 227 (includes Dave's original list)

Thats a lot of fuzz…..
As you know David is now sourcing enclosures here in the UK, this should make build and turnaround time a lot quicker. Also with some stock being available through the very fine "Downstroke Music store" on a "snag em while you can" basis, we should start to see wait list, wait times drop. :dance:

Over n out!
Joe. :cheers:

sorry to hear about the situation, Joe. Some might say, "When one door closes, another door opens". Best of luck to you with the new shop!
