Mr. Black

Eighteen years ago my mother woke up one morning, just as she had every day in her life prior. However, that particular day was different.

Half of her body was completely paralyzed.

This made her speech difficult, and actually moving nearly impossible.  In the days to follow, she received life changing news and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS); a permanent, degenerative nerve disease.  For more information about MS, please click here.

My mother, as well as my best friend’s mother, and countless other mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandmothers, grandfathers, teenagers, adults and everywhere in between have given themselves to the pursuit of an actual cure for those not yet diagnosed, via multiple invasive and non-invasive tests, studies, medications and treatments.

At this time, there is no known cure for MS.

And it is a BRUTAL disease.

I’ll spare you the details, but over the last 18 years, I’ve watched my mother’s health oscillate and her physical condition improve and relapse.  She can currently walk well, and live a “normal” life while she is involved in a long term study following a strict regimen of various chemical and physical treatments.  Much of the funding for this research is provided by the National MS Society, a non-profit organization devoted to the pursuit of a cure for MS.

Last year, a close friend of mine asked me if I would sponsor her in a fundraising event for the National MS Society.  Guess what my answer was.

This year, I wanted to do a little more than I was able to last year.

With that said, we have built 100 Special Edition SuperMoon Limited reverb pedals, which are now available for “purchase.”  I place the word “purchase” in quotations because these pedals do not carry a fixed price, and 100% of the proceeds from their sales will be directly donated to the National MS Society via sponsorship of my friend’s fundraiser ride.

Yes.  You read that correctly.

100% of the proceeds are donated.

100%.

All of it.

Only you can decide what your budget affords.  While I encourage you to select a higher price point than our standard $179.95, I understand if that’s not within your budget right now.  At the same time, we are not making a dime on this project.  Again, 100% of the proceeds from these 100 units is going directly to the National MS Society.  All of it.

Why?

Its quite simple really.

 

If you could help improve the quality of your, and many other people’s, mother, father, son, daughter, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, friend, co-worker, best friend, or any other relationship that escapes my mind right now, lives:

Would you?

 

I think you see where I stand on this one.

 

With all that said, I’ll reiterate the basic facts and bullet points of this limited run.

  • There are only 100 of these special edition SuperMoon Limited reverb pedals available.
  • 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these units will be donated directly to the National MS Society.
  • Contribution levels range from $100.00 to $1,000.00.  Whatever price you select (use the drop down menu) will be rewarded with a pedal.
  • The SuperMoon MS Limited is built on the foundation of our coveted SuperMoon Chrome with additional modulation incorporated into the output of the reverb. If you like the SuperMoon Chrome, you will LOVE this pedal.
  • All sales are FINAL. I’m sure you understand.
  • We stand by our standard warranty on these pedals, just as we do with every pedal we’ve ever made.
  • Again, 100% of the proceeds from this run will be directly donated to the National MS Society.

 

The National MS Society has improved the lives of countless people across the USA, including my mother and my best friend’s mother.  With any luck, an actual cure will be developed for this curse and someday, people will no longer suffer from the effects of this cruel and terrible disease.

I encourage you to stop and hold the door for the next person you see entering a building.  Share your umbrella when it rains.  Buy a homeless guy a sandwich.  Basically, be the best person you can and do the best you can with what you’ve got.  Its really all any of us can do.

 

 

This is Jack, owner/designer/whatever of Mr. Black pedals saying:
I hope you enjoy these pedals and the purpose behind them.  Be good to yourself and the next person.

 

Welcome
