    I got mine a few years ago through one of the dealers on ebay. Gbase.com also list a few dealers. One of the online pedal specialty shops also does Crowther Audio, I just can't remember which one.

    You could also email Crowther, he'll give you some dealers. There's a dealer in Kansas that had the best price when I was looking (can't remember his name, sorry).

    If you happen to get an older one, Paul will update it relatively cheaply. The switch really just adds a 'mellower' mode.

    Hey, its a very unique fuzz/distortion. It generates many more harmonics than a standard fuzz/distortion.
