    I've been on the lookout for a used Amp 11 Big Box for a while, but they're rare to find.
    I just tried to go to the Lovepedal web page and get a 404 Error message that the website cannot be found. Anyone know of the current status??

    @DavidP try this one:
    http://www.lovepedal.com/pedals/

    Still has the error message at the top, but looks like they have about ten models currently available, including Amp 11 - clicking on it, says "in stock" good luck. Don't know if that's exactly what you're looking for or not.

    I know the pandemic has created a nightmare of problems for many.

    I like the lovepedal stuff ( I have the brown Deluxe, 4-knob) but usually wait until they have some kind of sale. Maybe next year.

    He’s shut down and has been for several months. I read quite a bit about it over at the Gear Page. There’s a HUGE amount of lapdog fanboys over there who have an epic, never ending thread about Lovrpedals. In s nutshell it appears he’s in the middle of a very bad, very ugly divorce and some other legal issues. No one is for sure if, or when the brand will be back.

    A shame really as he made some great pedals over and the years and I’ve owned a bunch. The Blackface Deluxe overdrive is absolutely incredible!

    I’d find a used one, preferably older. A large percentage of what I got in the last 12-18 months before they disappeared were faulty, noisy, or just plain junk.

    There were some serious QC issues towards the end, especially with some of the pedals he had in those “SNS” sales. I’m not sure if he was subletting a lot of the production out or not but there were lots of faulty pedals out there.

    The 3 most recent pedals I bought all had quality issues. One was DOA. He offers some cool stuff, but nothing that can’t be found elsewhere. I’m done with Lovepedal, unfortunately.

    To be exact Lovepedal is out of business since early Feb 2020, i.e. for a year by now. Hope it won't last forever.

    Amp 11 is nearly identical to a Timmy, maybe go that direction?

    The OD11 is the drive side of that pedal and can be purchased separately if you don’t need the boost function of the Amp 11.

    I never had issues with the pedals I got, probably 4 or 5 during the last days.
    Paint was crude on some. But I only paid $50/75 for them, shipped. Love the delay and envelope filter. The fuzzes are decent. Only OD I got is the Deluxe, but it's a nice low gain OD. The Champ pedal was crap.
