Excellent haul! Which is your fave, and any chance of a mini write up?

No favourite because they’re all amazing in their own way.

Pigdog is classic Mk1 flavour (OC75 / 2G374), a real all-rounder. Dead silent when not playing, slightly scooped but still fat and dynamic, lovely harmonic rich decay and gating, and the whole attack range is usable on a hot day. Enough artefacts to know you’re playing a Mk1 but not over the top. This like like the Rolls Royce of Mk1’s.

The jerms is a primitive beast (early Mk1 circuit variation, OC71 / AC152-6) that really shows its FZ-1 roots. Very fat focused mids, with much angrier cross-modulation on notes and chords like an FZ-1. Switch changes output cap from stock to FZ-1 bee buzz mode to fat Mk1 mode. Extra knob is a filter knob like a Mk1 Supa. Attack knob swells and misbehaves like a Maestro too. INSANE volume boost available.

The newest family member is the Ghost 2065, a standard Mk1 circuit with extra Q2 bias and tone (post gain bass cut) knobs (OC71 / 2G381). Probably the best artefacts I’ve heard in a Mk1, there’s a wonderfully crackly gating and it nails that “electric” Mk1 sound on all the old records (does Spencer Davis Group’s “Somebody Tell Me” to a tee) The bias knob is excellent for fine tuning the sound, you can effectively use the entire attack range depending on where the bias is set. With attack and bias up full it’s spitty city and gets synthy and unpredictable.

All three are permanent keepers!

Great stuff!
The illusive 2065 with TIs and bias that Ian posted on IG!

Glad it’s found it’s forever home. Not many of the 2g381s left out there.

The very same! Number #27

Shining a bright torch light on the TIs they’re actually the overstamped 2G382’s that Jim posted here about 10 years ago. A bunch must have ended up in the TIs that Ian received from Jim years ago.

Either way they sound identical and fucking brilliant! 1964 date stamp too so correct era for a Mk1.
