VFE Update
« on: March 17, 2017, 04:18:19 PM »
Just to let you guys know things are moving along. I expect to have the first two or three projects released within weeks (I'll announce which ones soon). Here is a list of the all the projects you will have to choose from. Of these, only the Bumblebee is a limited supply. Everything else will be in stock for quite a long time.

Alpha Dog
Blueprint
Blues King
Bumblebee
Choral Reef
Darkhorse
Distortion 3
Enterprise
Fiery Red Horse
Focus
Merman
Mobius Strip
Old School
Pale Horse
Scream
Springboard
Triplet
Triumvirate
White Horse
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Awesome Brian!  I'm going to build them all, but am excited for the Merman, Choral Reef and Mobius Strip.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

This is going to be fun. At least 4-5 of these I'm really excited to build.
