Right on, man! Way fuckin' cool. A most excellent score! So that makes 3.

Yours don't have diode of any kind fitted so not surprised it sounds gnarly as fuck. Seems like the boys at Gunn just couldn't get their shit right, heh.

Oh crazy! I didn't even realize that there were no diodes.

So your's does have them?

The guy I bought this from has the overdriver too. I'm trying to pry it from his hands. :hihi: but I'm curious as to how similar it actually is to the Colorsound?
Oh, DB? That's just slang for Dandy Big muff collector.

Cool demo, but that guy has been trying to sell that pedal for like $2k or more for a while now.
He has the octaver and overdriver too.

He wanted something like $6k for all three...

Ok so this dude is A: hyping up this pedal to try and sell it B: literally making up history and facts that aren't based in any reality, and C: doing so to make up for the fact that their pedal has been heavily modded! It's got new transistors and who knows what else now 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Sorry fellas didn't know they were trying to pump and dump... just thought it sounded good and when I searched here found this thread. Thanks for pointing that out.

No, nothing against you posting that! It is cool to see a nice demo for it. 🙏
I just wanted to point out the guy's inaccuracies and misleading info so no one gets confused.
