I've some fun with the pedals for a couple of days but I haven't had a chance to record anything. Should I hold on to them for a couple extra days and get some video on Tuesday or ship them off sooner than that? I was planning to show how they work with the EHX 8-Step and comparing the Trek to the SS/BS Blarggotron PWM fuzz.

recording/demo-ing is optional, so dont feel stressed about it, if you want to do it but can ship before tuesday its ok, otherwise it will be better to ship them off to keep on track with the schedule

They did however have the time to charge me 20 euros for getting my Meet Maude back, despite the fact it was marked as a guarantee repair.

I love our customs agents...

Whoever's shipping it to me; if you have to write a value for the pedals, please make the total less than 200,- NOK or I'll have to pay 25% in taxes and silly money in customs fees.

Overall impressions:
Both of the pedals sound awesome and can do both mundane and super-weird things.
As for criticism: I sometimes wanted the width to go higher on the Trek. I would have liked a mix or blend knob on the Gyroscope. Top-mounted jacks are nice but somewhat undone by side-mounted power jacks.
That aside, I loved the pedals.
I don't know why PWM fuzz doesn't get more appreciation. It's such a great sound.
The Gyroscope makes for a very fun alternative to choruses, phasers, flangers, etc.

when you say "the width to go higher on the Trek" you meant the knob at min or at max (just to know the proper direction, because is a balance between on and off and the direction differs from the perspective) and see if i can do something.

Yes i feel you about the power jack, the main factor is space, in order to fit the 6 knobs and sometimes an extra toggle on top, and i havent find a small quality 2.1mm power jack, but i will see what can i do.

My battle with the pedals, is the amount of knobs, i really like to have lots of controls/options/knobs. The mix knob is one of the features that i want to add to expanded version of the gyroscope (and the option to sync it to the lfo)

There are plans of bigger versions with more knobs (bigger case) and continue to fine tune the designs to provide a good sonic experience, so your feedback is highly appreciated.

And yeah PWM rocks

I mean with the width fully clockwise, I want it to go more. I wanted it bassier.
I could see how the thin trebly sound at the other end would have its uses, though.

yes, the trebbly gets very gated and doesnt produce sound (the 2 knobber version had like 15% of the sweep in direction of thin/trebbly that the higher strings were hard to produce sound) , but yeah i think it can get more ballsy, but looking at my notes the range was set to balance the full spectrum of the knob, so it provides a perceived full range with a linear source (since is linked to the cv and most expressions are linear) and the thinner sound so trashy in a beautiful punk way, but i will take in consideration your suggestion and see what can i do, thanks a lot. Probably adding an extra switch to add more range in the ballsy side
