    I don't think I'll need to raise the price. :)

    I'm going to definitely be interested when this version of the pedal comes out.

    Eggcelent. The switch is actually two switches, one controls the intensity of the compression reaction, the other controls the speed. So both switches open is the Tough, and both closed is the Suave, and either one open with the other closed gives some subtle in-between stages.

    That’s pretty sweet. Makes me considering getting one when they’re released, which would be right around my birthday according to your previous estimate. Hmmm

    I know, I know. It's hindered by an economy-of-scale problem for the guy that builds the Smoothie for me. All the pedals he builds, for various brands, have the same basic chassis.

    I’m perfectly happy with the Suave, but the appeal of additional switches/tweakability, even just for its own sake, is strong. Gives new meaning to calling someone a “tweaker.”

    It’s times like this when I almost feel like I’m too much of a pedal-head. Almost.

    I placed an order for one of these last night. I've been compressor-less for a while... had a Keeley for a year and wasn't a big fan. Excited to give compression another go with a different flavor!

    I consider buying one, I was wondering if anyone has recent experience with shipping to the EU as my budget is limited. Can anyone give advice on what the estimated shipping cost and import tax will be? I'm located in the Netherlands

    Hopefully some international buyers will have an answer for you about their local VAT and other import fees. The international shipping cost I have listed on Reverb is $50 USD, which is just the price of Priority Mail postage, with no other fees or "handling charges" etc. In the instances where it cost a bit less, I refunded the difference, but more often it ends up costing me $51-54. From what customers have reported to me, it seems like about 2/3 of them receive the package without getting hit with extra charges by their local customs offices. Of the ones who did have to pay local fees, the amount seems to vary pretty widely.

    I tried using a cheaper international shipping method for a while, but they lost three packages in one month.

    I am part of the unfortunate third that had to pay the extra costs. In France it is 12% import tax + 20% VAT.

    So basically the total cost for me was: Smoothie price + 32% of Smoothie price + shipping fee which ended up being exactly the current price of Darkglass Super Symmetry on Thomann. Having owned the later, I much happier with the Smoothie, YMMV.
