After getting opinions and research, the ElectroniX Submarine seems like my best choice. Clean, slightly tone shaping boost was what I was after. I ordered direct, which means: I pay, they make the pedal in a week and ship. I ordered on April 13th, got a ship confirmation email on the 21st. It was supposed to be Priority Mail. Texas to NY shouldn't take 9 days (and counting). I've been shipping worldwide with USPS for years and nothing takes that long, including Australia, Japan, Russia, Korea... I've emailed them with no response after 48 hours. I don't want to be a prick, but I don't want to be a sucker either. It's not really a time issue as much as the lack of communication that I'm asking about. I fully understand that stuff happens, but I also expect professionalism when I deal with a business. So, anyone have an opinion or insight? Please don't take this as a slam of the company, it's not. It may be lost in the post and he may be traveling, all innocent-like.
