    My understanding is that they're made in California, but may have some Chinese parts.

    But here's your real answer: Their factory is in Benicia, CA. All Dunlop and MXR pedals are manufactured in the USA

    Wow... that's quite a story.

    I feel the same about Mooer copying EHX... You won't see me playing any Mooer pedal.

    "So, how did you get that tone?"

    "I used a P-bass, then ran it through some cough syrup stacked into some soy milk."

    I like NZ

    But it's not like the place for trying out pedals

    I'm not complaining g though, I've been done good with what I have/had

    Cheers guys

    Sounds great, lots of flexibility too. I wonder if an overdrive can be too flexible - my heroes used much simpler means to sound awesome.

    I'm not a flexibility guy. I do like being able to tweak a pedal to perfection, but once I get it set, I leave it. One tone per pedal. Otherwise I spend more time playing with knobs than playing my instrument. I had a guitarist in my band for awhile that liked to change his pedal settings between songs. I wanted to choke him sometimes. We're ready to play and he's crouched over his pedalboard like an amateur, screwing around with knobs.

    I think this one sounds great. I'm going to pitch a minor bitch about the controls though. I really hate it when builders get cutesy with the names of the knobs. I want all my knobs to say things like "level", "gain", "tone", etc. Actual musical terms that mean something. This one's not too hard to figure out, but I'm still going to get a little cranky about it.

    I'm not a flexible guy

    I am rigid, cantankerous and set in my ways.

    I fiercely resist change because I already know I'm right.

    Sounds organic and girthy. Might be just what I need for that Beastie Boys MCA tone.
    Hmmmmz....
