    This was too good of an idea to let die forever. If I had the tools/skill I'd volunteer to build this one but I don't.

    Still, I'm very much onboard with giving it one more try and would certainly be willing to pony up a few bucks to make it happen.

    I had some great ideas for pictures.

    For the unitiated. There's a prior thread, but I was too lazy to try and find that one.

    Let's make this happen!

    HMMM, No skills or tools here either but you've piqued my interest. Not to sound like the noob; I get the gist but maybe you could go into a little more detail.

    I agree, and could put something together... but unless its kept really limited I have my doubts about the pedal getting past 2 or 3 people. Any thoughts about enrollment restriction to try and keep out the theiving types?

    Basically the original idea was for effects forum regulars to chip in and buy a real effect and pass it along to people on the list. Disagreements over what should be bought and whether or not it would make it without getting ganked by somebody along the way made the idea evolve into basically a True Bypass, 1 knob pedal with no real function.

    It's sort of the TB version of Flat Stanley. We'll mail it along, take pictures with it (at gigs, on your pedalboard, around town - whatever) and then mail it to the next person. At the end we'll hopefully have a goofy scrapbook of pictures.

    I always thought it was a fun idea.

    After I've played with it for a while, maybe I'll put up my new dual box of awesome. (Yeah I know...I owe you $0.40 :spit:)


    Ahh, just went back and read the original thread...no wonder I missed out. I was.....umm... on a "leave of absense" from TB during that time.

    BTW BigO; Don't let the door hit you on the arse on the way out. :spit: :D

    not sure if there is a democratic way of making out a list. For the sake of debate I say it should be geographical.

    This list is chronological according to this thread.
