1965 2016

9 years later. 1965 circa 2016. A little different from the last batch Joe Pedal's received, firstly being that they are black, secondly I opted to use a somewhat more traditional transistor arrangement. A single OC75 and two Texas Instrument devices do the hard graft; the latter being 2G374's. Not as annoying to set-up as the 2G381 one discovered, tonal gratification delivered.
The 'Supe Zee' switch is more akin to the original 2007 1965 though there is still a little extra kick in the chops compared to those early units, but not as ridiculous as the 2015 1965, fun though that was the insane volume boost probably isn't required by most sane individuals.
The bias network differs from pedal to pedal, as seen the original MKI's, so needless to say they are pretty precisely tuned, though not as ironed out as I have done with previous versions. The manufacture of the OC75's also varies from one unit to the next, I was seeking specifications not a pretty face. The pedal photographed was selected at random, some have the Valvo style capsule, others the Philips type, all deliver the goods.

So so sweet. Gorgeous work, as always. Can't wait to see them start trickling out into the wild.
Be prepared and be honest.
