GREAT NEWS !!! ZVEX Effects boutique pedals on the way.

Hello from Memphis. Welcome to 2017.  We hope things are already going great for you.  So how do you like the new sign I'm having custom built for BCM as I write?  5" thick letters in dark blue with all enclosed LED lighting, then 18" tall letters in white with light blue edging so it can be read at up to 700+ feet from the store.  Frank Balton Signs is building this for me, and it should be done in under 3 weeks.  Now it will be simple to find BCM even when driving down busy Germantown Parkway.
