He's been shipping via UPS. If you sign up with "My UPS" on UPS.com, you can get notification that a package will be delivered a day before actual delivery. This service may still be free, but they do have premium services as well so you may have to dig a bit to get the free version. Anyway, that's how I got my notice.

Boy they really sound great to me. With such a sensitive effect it is tough to set 2 up to give a true comparison. Thanks Mike!

I got mine on Thursday. Serial #10.

I have a vintage Mu-III that has been cleaned up by Richard Lingenberg and I have the two next to each other running through my Loopmaster true-bypass switcher so I think the comps I have been doing are pretty accurate. There have been demos posted (which I am about to listen to) so people can easily decide for themselves. IMO, I would never give up my vintage Mu-III. That said, I think the TruTron nails the original Mu-III and does quite a bit more. The mojo is there in spades!! I have tweaked the two (to get them as close as possible) and while there is a slight difference in tone, it is SLIGHT. It sounds fantastic and with the exception of my Mu-III, it is the best E.F. I have ever used. This E.F. is far more than just an effect. It is, in the tradition of Musitronics gear, a piece of art used to create art. There will be more to come and if you do not already have a Mu-III, get one of these.

I spoke with Mike Beigel and he mentioned that he wants to continue to build new effects. As an owner of the Mu-Tron Phasor II and still chasing the Octave Divider I hope those two are up next. I will be first in line.

WooHoo!!!! That is fantastic news!!! Thanks for the update! With that in mind, I think I will send the Phasor II to Lingenberg for a tune up (it sounds great as is, but all vintage Musitronics gear needs a bit of work at their current age) and just hang in there until the Octave is released. I was going to get the BYOC but with this news, I am going to wait.

Good news on the divider! My BYOC sounds so good I may not need it though.

Really great news about the Octave; they are rarer than the MIII I believe...which is why they cost more than a carton of cigarettes after taxes in NYC lol. Many thanks to Mike for jumping in sincerely. I love the photo of all his stuff lined up on a kitchen counter for work...thats the kindof grass roots Americana I view as mythylogical. At this rate we'll begin to actually hear instruments on pop records again---God love programmers, but I always prefer cotton over nylon, procreation over synthetic.

The Mutron Octave Divider can be had for much less from B.Y.O.C. Their version is indistinguishable in a blind A/B test. I know this demo is not in the context a Jerry player would use it, but it does show just how exact the B.Y.O.C. version gets.

Rightly so, I would bet Mikes new version of the MuOctDiv will be a little costlier, and I would imagine like the TruTron, it will have some added features.

gulp... damn.

So a few hours after the UPS truck dropped off number 28, I got an hour or so to play. Man... this is good. Granted, I've never played an original... but compared to the other 6 or 7 variations I've tried this has great clarity... it's almost as if the others all have a blanket over them. Nearly every setting sounds good... and the added gain potential is even good. So far I'm impressed.

Yeah, I had some quality time with #11 last night, pretty happy with it. The ol' Mutron is getting jealous.
