    Definitely a winner in terms of sound. I would love one for the collection, but will wait till they show up used.

    Pedalsandeffects.com is wrong, Mr Black no longer offers international shipping. I guess he must have had a bad experience that made him stop. I'm gonna look into getting one sent to one of those forwarding companies!

    I would have already bought one if they shipped to Canada.

    Actually the website now says on or before 3/20/16. Hope they are somewhat close on the ship date.

    Ordered as well... We'll see. The word "Fwonk" pretty much describes what I'm wanting to hear, though.

    That Fwonk Beta really has the greatest sound I've heard in an envelope filter. Can't wait for his end of year sale where I'll pick one up for the collection.

    I've seen a bunch of Instagram posts of people saying theirs have already shipped. Jack Deville doesn't fool around. I ordered a Supermoon and a Shepards End during last years BF sale and they shipped 2 days later.

    I love Mr. Black. I would argue that he is making some of the best modulation effects on the market. If only I could find a maker of dirt pedals that I was as fond of. Those come and go, but my Mr. Black boxes aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

    The video sounds great. The FwonkBeta sounds different from the run of the mill Envelope filter not as nasal and quacky but still Wet and Funky. Can't wait to get mine The update says they are getting it ready to ship. Who knows what that means time line wise.

    I don't know if it's the pedal or Juan's rig, but it sounds like it had a bit of mild distortion built in that I really like. The only other two filter pedals I've tried (and still own) that do this are the Mini Q-Tron and Meatball. This sounds like it could possibly replace both of them in a smaller form factor!

    Is the switch on the Fwonkbeta a up/down switch?

    Btw that video really makes me want a Vulcan XL. Tim got some great sounds out of it. I'd really like to see him do another video for it. I love it when Tim does videos with P&E.

    Malekko?

    There isn't a switch on the Fwonkbeta. Just three knobs, an LED and the foot stomp. I really wish it had a downsweep mode, but I still ordered one anyway.

    That Vulcan really does sound good. I was watching the video for the Mr. Black (and because I love Tim Lefebvre's playing) but very cool to see an A/B with the Vulcan and the Vintage Deluxe. Very similar sounding but with some definite differences, though we can't really see exactly where the knobs are set and both seem pretty EQ'd.

    Last day of the discount code for those on the fence...

    They might not ship internationally, but I just set up an account with Shipito.com - I send the package to a US address then they charge me a measly $2 to forward it onto the UK. Fingers crossed this works out OK!
