We Have Parts!

May 8th, 2023

Lots of news! The parts shortage appears to be at least ending, I found a source for some very nice bearings, and it’s spring.

Bearings Incoming

After a lot of research, I found some nice smooth bearings I like, and ordered a big batch. They should be here in a few weeks, and then we will have more options in the store and the eBay listing. All the other bearing kit parts are already here. Excitement?

Parts Shortage Is Mostly Over. Right?

Well, all of the parts to build at least some of the pedals now appear to be available for purchase. So, wouldn’t you know my OS updated and now some of my tools won’t run. But this means I can now get back to working on the next Sugar Britches pedal (there will be another one). And some other awesome secret projects as well.

Other news

Well, there’s not other news. It’s spring!

Headed to Memphis

The various BYTE HEAVEN stores will be closed for a few days, while I am in Memphis for the IBC. Time to play the blues, and stuff! :)


Sugar Britches prototype

Sugar Britches Prototype Board

We’ve been out of Sugar Britches pedals for some time now, because of the parts shortage. I’ve redesigned the pedal to use parts that are actually available…and the first prototype is in. I’m just waiting for some jacks and other components to assemble and test it. We should have more pedals soon!

Yes, there are a lot of little switches there. New Sugar Britches will have new features…
