Between November of 2014 and March of 2015 Alfonso Hermida built a small batch of these incredible units. They are ready to ship and very rare! We only have this one small batch of units Alfonso built by hand available. We have a NO return, NO cancel policy on these particular units because of the time involved to produce them.

This pedal also comes with a free 9V DC, 200mA adapter since it does not operate with a battery.
