    I tried contacting Iron ether about ordering pedals and didn't receive any response after a week or so. I also noticed all the pedals are out of stock on their page. Anyone know what's going on with them right now?

    I believe Taylor had some health issues a while back. He's now trying to get caught with back orders and I believe building some stock before he starts taking new orders. Could be a while yet.

    No. I sent back my Nimbus for repair and Taylor couldn't duplicate the fault but offered to send me a new pedal. I originally sent the pedal in for repair in Dec of 2013. My last communication from Taylor happened on March 18 and at that time he said he would be able to send a new Nimbus in a couple of weeks.

    I'm going to sit tight and not stress for the time being. He's been up front thus far. I just hope whatever health issues afflicted him last year haven't returned.

    Oh ok. Well I wish him a speedy and full recovery! I'm hoping Taylor sees this thread.

    Hey fellas, as noted above I'm digging out of a difficult spot right now, but IE is still alive and the web shop will reopen next month or so with pedals in stock.

    Sorry to hear Taylor hasn't been well. I've been meaning to order a few of his pedals for a while and waiting for IE's status to change, but I'm quite content to wait until he's ready.

    Hope you're OK man. :)

    I'm going to place an order for a SubT as soon as the shop is open again. It's next in my quest to own the whole product line. :)

    I'm REALLY trying to hold off on buying anymore pedals until I can get a Polytope. Might have a used Nimbus lined up though and I'm not letting it slip past me if I can help it.

    Funny part is that as soon as I found this thread I received an email from IE saying my pedal has shipped. Timing was a bit scary but hey, I'm not complaining! Hope you're doing well Taylor!

    Thanks so much for the well-wishes, everybody. Let me also extend a public apology to those who have been waiting quite a while for their pedals recently. I never wanted to be one of those pedal companies with a long wait. I've made changes to get things shipped faster, make up for your wait, and to ensure that this doesn't happen again in the future.

    Aside from knowing something happened, I don't really know your situation whatsoever, but I'm looking forward to the reopening of your store, and I truly hope all is well with you now! :) I'm really interested in the Subterranea and the Xerograph LPF.

    I'm still figuring out how it will work with my band.
