Re: Ron and the 16 Second Digital Delay

Thanks for the kind words, Mike.  Since the 16SDD is being advertised as a 
limited production item, I figured the $100 deposit will allow people to 
make sure that they will have one reserved for them.  I know I don't have 
big fancy storefront like Musictoyz, but I try.
BTW, my next project will be the EH Buyer's Club, where members will 
continue to get great prices on EH stuff.

   I don't walk on water yet but I am getting it to knee level.  Of course 
it's harder to do while working on pedals ;)
