    That would be cool to try out. I don't know why but poor ol' Scott hasn't had an awful lot of luck with sig gear. He had a pedal with Washburn that kinda came & went without notice, the Didgitch Black 13 could have been a lot better and I don't know how many of his Randall Ultimate Nullifier amps sold but I'm guessing it wasn't very many.
    On the plus side, he HAS had a good run with his guitars though. Back a decade ago, a bandmate of mine bought one of his Washburns and he really liked it. I've also heard that his sig model Jacksons are pretty decent for the price as well.

    Very much looking forward to hearing some demos of this one.

    My band at the time supported on the European leg of the Worship Music tour, he was using his Randall and a JVM live.

    Funny enough, even he doesn't use his own Randall anymore. Every video I've seen of him playing in the last few months, it's almost always a 5150 III of some sort.

    He stopped endorsing Randall awhile back. A lot of people jumped ship after Mike Fortin left. He's been an EVH endorsee for about 3 years now.

    It also didn't help that it was also around the same time Randall was bought out and more or less just evaporated.

    I imagine Randall pretty much going dormant also is what did it. I saw people giving Scott Ian shit for jumping ship, but he wasn't the only one. Ola did, Lynch did, etc.

    Lynch and Ian jumping ship is worrisome because they were longtime endorses of Randall. It signaled that Randall was about to tank.

    Okay NOW here's finally a worthy bump.

    Shocker; it's made by KHDK.

    It's available for pre-order tomorrow, so if you REALLY are interested, check the KHDK website, because I'm not linking the current webpage for the pedal because it's cringy as fuck. :lol: All I'll say is that they claim the preamp and distortion circuits are "original."

    That write up is poorly written, and sounds really unprofessional. The fact it doesn't have a price tag is also weird.

    It's going to be $250 according to their Facebook page.

    And yeah, that webpage is ***BADLY*** written. It's why I'm not linking it. I'll link the actual product page tomorrow when it's up.

    The use of cuss words on a "professional" legitimate product website was pretty silly. Whomever wrote that should be let go to righte foure Teh Onyin.

    Part of the first draft for the website was "Scott knew what he wanted - lots of $$$ from a signature pedal, that he'll only ever use a total of four times across his various social media accounts"

    Looks like they took your suggestion. I just saw that it does light up now!

    As a huge S.O.D fan i just ordered it.

    I got the TC Electronics BLD so it would be nice to compare the boost circuit on those two pedals.

    I was gonna put down money on another GK250ML, but... I'll be honest this pedal's very tempting.

    Anyone know how good the KHDK pedals are?
