I am an expert searcher but can't seem to find the threads where dozens of interested tbers pooled together and bought an item to pass around to try it. This has been done with a few items but i cant remember what any of them are or i would be able to find the threads. Help me out. I want to see the results and talk before i try it. I am thinking of doing this with my own product (a 12 position varitone in a box with extra features like true bypass, switch from 250k pot to 500k, add an inductor by a switch to make a notch filter. Basically the thing will have 4 dozen tones in a cigarette pack sized box.) i will have my prototypes done in about 6 weeks. I am awaiting parts from europe, asia, and the far reaches of the earth.
