Shame, got a couple of his Buzzround enclosures.

Seems "The Zonk Machine" is owned by Stephen Giles, but a interesting dispute here:
http://www.ipo.gov.uk/t-challenge-decis ... o40312.pdf

Don't know who Nicola Clarke and her father, Mr Turner are? but they are all in Yorkshire (along with TBPC), and the seller who was doing the Zonk Machine enclosures......so wonder if it was a order for VPW, before the Giles, Clarke, Truner brake up?

And do 90% of British pedals get made in Yorkshire!?
This is a big reason Steve Giles got out of the pedal business. He was run over by these scammers through their shady practices. This was about the same time he had his accident and stayed in the hospital for an extended time. She got quite nasty with Steve and basically tried to take him over and squeeze him out of the picture. BPC could be somehow related to Nicky Clarke. She wanted to keep the company going even though Steve pulled out of building.

While a hollywoodesque story about one man breaking away from the clutches of music ground sounds really great you should consider that he wasn't necessarily any less involved with building and selling counterfeit pedals as the harrison boys.

He built the amps not the pedals. Steve Giles is a quality person and please don't speak an ill word against him.
