Any parcels addressed to me had not arrived by 24 Dec, and i wont be back at that address until 4 Jan. So don't wait for me to do your unboxings. Happy New Year to you all, in the meantime - Jeremy
Since the parcel was rerouted from Austria back to Germany and then into the correct direction to you an the 4th December it can take another few weeks to arrive. DHL Germany says that it can take up to 40 work days, because it will be shipped via a combination of airmail and surface mail. :|
Oh well, at least it is on its way. Thanks for the update. You should have drawn a Kangaroo or a caricature of Crocodile Dundee on the front of the envelope! I will let you know when it arrives.
Jerem, Jeremy on BAF and SBZ

Fuzzbuzzfuzz, is it perhaps the DOD Meatbox?
No, it is not Dirk, but it's a guess.

Further clues:

- The case and the battery door are different colors.
- It was made in Japan (to my delight!)

That sounds like an Ibanez Soundtank pedal. I know that Joske_Turbo collected these in the last years. But were the later models made in Japan as well? My guess is that it is a metal case model. These were dirt pedals only ... so maybe the PL5 Powerlead?

Ah... an Arion something or another. Perhaps a Metal Master?

Not a bad guess Pepe, but no it is not Ibanez!

(see next post...)

The circuit and controls (bar a tweak) I suspect is very closely related to a similar color (one of the colors) BOSS pedal ...!

The flanger SFL-1?

The delay SAD-1?

annnnnnd Laurie takes the prize!

It is indeed the flanger of the range, the earliest MIJ version. Visually reminiscent of the BOSS Bf-2. I have yet to try them side by side but I'm looking forward to it!
