No, but definitely need to save my shekels. I waited on the tru-tron until I got done paying my daughter's tuition bills, and they were gone by then.

That looks sweet. If it sounds the same and is at a reasonable price point it will be a home run.

Good to see. I am happy the TruTrons jumped up in price upon discontinuation. Everybody screams for people to remake classics but when they do and come with a moderate price they decide they can put off buying them for awhile. Or worse, complain that the originals can be bought on ebay in the same ballpark price. The same thing happened with 300B output tubes. We gotta support our small electronics builders etc., if WE dont nobody will and it will be impossible to produce the stuff that we appreciate. Im the first one to bargain hunt but in the end Id rather give my money to someone producing quality stuff than send it towards those student loans Ill never pay off or health insurance I never use lol.

Interesting idea with the dual footswitch. The smaller footprint is vry welcome obviously. Hope the tone is there through simple vintage amps.

I'm super happy with my Tru-Tron 3x. If this gets that sound in a smaller box, with a 9v power supply, and with an expression pedal option.....awe yea!

Also sounds like it will be available in 6 weeks and somewhat affordable in the $250 range. :cool:

Thanks for the link. Just added myself to the preorder list. Not going to miss out on this like I did with the Tru-tron.

I got this email from Mu-fx sales last week

" There's still some uncertain elements about the Micro-Tron III
and the next version of the Tru-Tron, so we can't accurately give any
dates or timelines, just know we're pushing as hard as we can to get
those going! We do intend to have an expression pedal jack built into
each of the products. We'll keep everyone updated as soon as we have any
more information."
“Jerry was a traditionalist and a pioneer, embracing America’s musical past while forging into the future. He understood how music can be a way to experience the unknown. This quest became a fountain of positive energy. How often does a lead guitarist play so selflessly with the idea of overshadowing the existence of ego? Every speck of me wishes he was still alive.”
