That kinda sums it up doesn't it? You obviously didn't love it because you thought it was over-priced. If I'd spent a large sum of money on something and loved it I wouldn't then sell it.

Do you think it's worth $200?...That's the price of a new Zen Drive, worth every penny IMHO....although you seem to be saying that it's not even worth that much so I wonder how good it actually is? Could it be possible that telling people you've owned a $600 pedal is actually worth more than the pedal itself :hmmm:
Please don't twist my words - I loved the sound of this piece of shit knockoff pedal. I care less if or what it's a copy of - just the sound blew my hair back.

I have a Zen and would gladly pay $150-200 for another shot at one of these D'loid POS's. I bought it because it's the ONLY way to know whether it's a great sound or not - music stores didn't have them. And I'd like another - if cheaper. Because I KNOW what it sounds like.

And I've never owned something just for bragging rights that I can remember.

But it's ok, I can live without one - I got a great sound also without it - it's just that silly last 10% that we/them dumbass gearheads seek.

You've got ugly man boobs with zits and an ugly ass?

I dunno, I'm actually in a good mood right now so insults are hard to cum by ATM.

I don't know that any one member speaks for the entire forum.

But since it's unlikely this thing will get traced here before sometime next year, where is the first place a clone will show up? JHS or Joyo?

Don't they already do a Zen Drive clone anyway? :twisted:

I think JHS is now the official builder of the Zen Drive.
(I'm pretty sure, but I may be wrong here though).

Lovepedal now does the Zen

My guess is Joyo already has one in hand and will have it on the market shortly.
They have the $$$ ($600 is nothin to them) and the ability, plus no fear....they'll recoup the investment in the first hour of sales to TGP'ers alone.
And you can be sure it won't be gooped.....that would cost another $00.02 per pedal to implement.
Hmmm, what will they name it? "Mongrel-loid"? :slap:

This might be silly question, but - dude's, if you sure it's ZenDrive, why don't you just buy ZenDrive?

Anyway.. If you TGP dude's ready to buy it, I'm happy to degoop this fuck. I'm on A/L between 2th-8th Dec, I can do it then. No guarantee you'll get it back in one piece, though

I'm located in GB (RG1 postcode)

EDIT: This (the pedal), and cheap soldering iron at your expenses. I won't fuckup my lovely station trying to break through that black poo

IT'S NOT A ZEN DRIVE. IT'S SOMETHING NEW AND TOTALLY ORIGINAL.

Where can I get an apple pie to choke myself ? Does it matter what brand ?
What clothes should I leave on ?
