|Rob||Re: Just built a Z. Vex SHO copy|
I am glad you created this post. People are very touchy with this subject, but hell, if someone does start cloning them to sell, he can just sue them, right? If not, I think it is perfectly ok to clone pedals that you like. I also think it's ok to trade schems. The people who want these schems are probably not going to ever buy these pedals, so there's no big loss to zachary vex. To me, it's like trading recipes. If you want to, you do it. If not, it remains a secret. People ask for the schems to z.vex stuff because they are obviously simple to build yourself and yet are very pricey, in my opinion. I do respect original designs, but I don't have any problems voicing my opinion on this matter. BTW, a whole hell of a lot has been put on webpages about Mike Fuller's take on the Fuzz Face, and yet, it still is his design, though not all that original. I don't see how that has affected his livelihhod, but if it has, that would suck. I personally wouldn't post schematics from an independent pedal manufacturer on a web page, but I'm glad it's there.
