No idea why they went out of business (probably financial issues) but they're actually back now. They've reissued their Flanger and Phaser, and both are very nice.

They have no links with Rocktron.

I think the story was that they shared a factory with Nady or someone like that who ****ed them over one day and wouldn't let them in. They couldn't really do anything because they didn't own any of the factory.
