Wow. There are some great sounds there...
Weirdly:
“Gunslinger” still apparently full price though.
I would probably jump on a blowout Gunslinger. Oh well.
well, now they're blowing out the Gunslinger too ... for $39 :w00t: and they scared up some more of the 440 Envelope Filters, which i had thought were looong gone .... 440 ordered :freako:

Thanks for the heads up! I just grabbed one too. For 40 bucks its a no-brainer.

I nabbed a Gunslinger.

I've got a Keely Neutron envelop filter, no need to grab the green DOD, right?

It's an awesome compressor, and I don't like compressors.

Seconded. It's the only compressor I've ever liked.

whoops. I'd meant to get one in the earlier sale and felt bad that I'd hesitated.

weird stuff went on at college campuses in California under a haze of punk and funk and weirdness (and other influences). Mostly ephemeral, purposely eclectic bands who only played house shows. Primus (Bay Area) played our dining hall, for example, and they (and Mr Bungle) had the most t-shirts walking around on campus. (Or: Santa Cruz is a weird, eclectic place; Camper van Beethoven started in my dorm years earlier. Just imagine all the bands in their wake that weren’t as good, etc. There was a beauty in the infinite possibilities and assured commercial failure of the pre-alternative era).
That said, you should totally go forward with “ALL DIE Meola”

I'd be eager to know: is digitech forever abandoning these pedals? or is it just a marketing plan, to bring them back later? or to sell off the brand? or something else?

In any case, this whole line of classic DOD pedals are, well, classic for a reason. They're very popular themselves and the basis of hundreds of other pedals and direct knockoffs. There's still a lot of money in these designs for businesses - and lots of great musicality for players.

the question seems to be whether Harman International is shuttering the DigiTech/DOD brand. the whole product development team was let go a while back, and they haven't brought anything new to market or even hinted at it that I've seen. they seem to be just flogging current stock at steep discounts.

their FB presence is endless ads and #throwbackthursday posts celebrating their classic lineup, all "weren't these old pedals GREAT!!" it's like yeah, they were -- how about you guys ramp up and reissue them. :fp:
