Apparently I also jumped on it! :joy: :omg: :!!!:

This is going to be my first tube pedal, didn't even know subminiature valves were a thing.
I now see that Effectrode is using them as well for some pedals, it seems it's possible to run them at full plate voltages:

Where's uni?
Please reserve one for him too Brian, I'm pretty sure he'll want one but he isn't around that much anymore.
Anyway, I'll send you a message to work out the deets. :thumb:

Could the pedal run at 18v? Makes it compatible with a lot more stuff.

Pre-ordered, the No Memory is my favorite delay and this sounds like one of my pedal dreams.

Preordered. I had to, it's pretty and pink.

I also must confess I hadn't really listened to your band before, but holy crap is that a great song. Looking forwards to the LP as well as the pedal now.

uni was on it already! :hug:
yeah effectrode is running them at full voltage for sure and doing more sophisticated things than i'm doing. different strokes and all - their stuff has always seemed interesting to me but admittedly i've never had the chance to mess with any.

maybe i can hold one for you if that's the case. they're already more than half gone. :eek:


If you can that would be amazing. I absolutely 100% will have the preorder money by then.

:cool:

I told my wife the other day, when you posted that sketch on Instagram, "Anytime Brian puts out a new pedal I know that I want it without seeing or hearing it."

And then this happens. I'm apparently not the only person who feels this way.

Whaha, I'm going to crap my pants yet again when next thing he does is post a video of the pedal with the sound of a mouse pooping, that shit would be funny. :lol:
Pretty sure it's not going to happen though. :thumb:

Awesome, go uni!

All good, only found out about subminiature valves when you posted this and I stumbled on it in the search, thought I'd share, that's all. ;)
Played some of those Effectrode pedals (at uni's place :lol:), they do sound great.

So stoked on this! :joy: :omg: :!!!:

Dude I'm listening to the song again and this is amazing. The song has this awesome spooky dance club feel but that chorus is SO CEG. And then back to channeling the ghost of Bowie. And I'm a sucker for sax. And I love everything Congleton has touched since the Paper Chase days.

Stoked on this song and the new album and the new pedal and the inevitable tour/world domination.

I was playing the song earlier and my girlfriend asked if it was Bowie. Seriously good stuff. The sax is perfect

Well then, glad I just got a check today.

Excited to try this and hear the album! The culture vulture is amazing. Only been able to try a real one once.
