    He’s really good about communication- I emailed him because I ordered both the skeleton key and the 1991 back in September, and I just got the skeleton key yesterday. He got right back to me and said it’ll be shipping next week.  So soon! Also, I paid like $85 each 🤷

    It didn't. The price above is $142.98 CDN.

    It's weird but a lot of online stores that use Shopify adjusts to the currency to the country that you are in automatically. The first I noticed this was when Ames Bros had their first archive sale last year. Usually the default would be in US currency. I didn't have to do anything on the website to find out how much it would be in CDN currency.

    I got mine got mine delivered on Friday after waiting about a month (which I was totally fine with). 

    My first reaction was that the pedal was cool but it had an unusual amount of hiss, but I could get over it. Also noticed the on/off switch seemed unstable too. 

    Today I went to use it for the second time and the Bass knob fell off. Then I plugged it in and the pedal didn’t even work anymore. I emailed the company. But I’m so bummed right now.

    I seem to remember others saying this guy was really good about making any problems right (though not always quickly- very small outfit). So hopefully it will all turn out well for you.

    Thank you.  

    Did anyone else's pedal has a very strong hiss?  Or did your on/off switch make a very loud click when pressing? Or have a knob fall off? lol

    How are you powering it? I usually only notice hiss when I’m low on current (to clarify, at home by myself, no hiss. At band practice with tons of electrical stuff plugged in, hiss)

    I found the problem. Cable running to power supply was broken. Okay, that’s a relief!!!! 

    Now I just have to fix the knob that fell off. Haven’t figured out how to do that yet.

    Okay, so everything is worked out. I had to buy a tool to put the bass knob back on. The on/off switch is a little wonky but it works just fine. And the reason it was not playing at all one day was because of the cable which went out, not the pedals fault. 

    Very happy with the product and I learned to play Dark Matter while using it!

    You should reach out to them.  I ordered on 1/4 and got delivery on 2/2.  Less than a month.

    Spring 2024
    Stock Update; Guitar Shows; Shipping Updates; New Release


    Hello,

    It has been some time since I was last in touch and I dare say that a huge amount has happened over the past few months so it felt like high time I sent out a message and let you all know what's going on in the world of FLB.

    STOCK UPDATE
    The Skeleton Key and 1991 both continue to be in high demand for which I can only say a big thank you; it means the world to me that so many of you have taken these funny little boxes into your hearts and onto your boards and are spreading the word to others. The 1991 has been unavailable for a while for various boring reasons however will be available for pre-order once more from 5pm UK time today with a lead time of 6 weeks. The Skeleton Key continues to be available for pre-order and I am happy to say that lead times for it have been reduced to 3 weeks.

    Shipping Update
    Shipping has been, quite frankly a nightmare in the past few months, particularly on the overseas front. Having had no real issues prior to November of last year, since then I have had all sorts of weird things going on with packages seemingly vanishing into the ether. If you have contacted me regarding an order that you should have received ages ago but has not materialised then please know I am working on getting things resolved as fast as I can.

    All orders placed in January and February will have shipped by the end of play today so be on the lookout for dispatch notices; hopefully there will be no issues with this lot going out!

    Guitar Shows
    I had a great time at the UK Guitar Show in Birmingham earlier this month so thank you if you were one of the many who came by the stall; chatted, tried out and in many cases bought pedals. It was great to meet so many of you, see old friends and make some new ones. Myself and Mrs. FLB will be back at the Bristol Guitar Show on the 14th April so please do come and say hello if you are going to be in attendance.

    New Stuff
    Pedal number 3 is nearing the end of its long development period and after a few final tweaks will be ready to move from prototype into production. Myself and Matt are extremely excited about this one and cannot wait to get it out into the world.

    As well as new pedals, there is also going to be a new face at FLB. Whereas I am extremely proud of how FLB has operated as a one man show these past few years, the past months have lead me to recognise that I have been spread very thin indeed by the workload and have inadvertently become a bottleneck in the operation of the business which has lead to some customers having an experience of FLB that falls below the standard I set for myself. As such I am taking on an employee from the middle of April. This should help to ensure consistency of production and bring those wait times down significantly whilst freeing me up for design work and ensure that the new release has a smooth launch.

    I think that covers everything for now; I shall be in touch with further updates soon.

    All the best

    Andy
