    Picked up this 73' Mark IV for less than I see some of the Analogman clones for these days - I think sometimes people forget the originals are still out there :) Looking forward to rocking it out - love these old Sola Sound pedals, although they are not exactly "board friendly". But that's cool with me, I don't have a pedal board.

    Oh damn!!! What a find!! HNPD!! How does it sound. Are the pots still good, or scratchy?

    Thanks man - I'm pumped! I just got it and will be cranking it tonight!!! First thing I do when I buy all these old pedals is run some deoxit through the pots. that solves the problem 90% of the time. I actually think a lot of pots have been prematurely replaced without being cleaned.

    That was my first colorsound pedal I bought and I was hooked. What an awesome pedal. It's like the first Klon but louder, more brutish and awesome.
