I've scaled this pedal back to "no specific time-frame", I wish I could spit them out as fast as I can think of them. It's been absolutely horrible trying to get basic stock of enclosures out of our supplier, they don't respond to emails, phone calls or smoke signals. I need to go back to our old system because the supplier we have been trying to work with over the last year is simply inept and dishonest...bad combination. Once I'm in the new location (we are moving) I'll work toward ditching the baggage that held us back over the last year.

thanks Dave,i have always considered you one of the most honest and straightforward of the "boteek" pedal builders. when you say you are having trouble with your suppliers it makes me a little more understanding of some of the other builders who have had their troubles this past coupla years or so.

hope the new location is lucky for ya

all the best

I have the 2 version of the DD, I always debate myself about which one sounds cooler. Somedays I prefer the LG soft clipping, other days the DD higher gain. I looked inside and they appear exactly the same circuit wise, resistors, caps a op amp have the same value.

I wonder how the LG sounds smoother and articulated that the DD….? Am i missing something?

Are there any left to purchase from the first production run? No sign of it on the UK dealer's website yet, so thinking about ordering direct.
