Gutshot? No problems with Faraday?

I'm digging the Fuzz Cap. Looks killer. :tu: Gotta love it when you score a cool enclosure for a buck.

Looks like we are neighbors. I'm down in Portland. :cheers:

Back in Septober or Octember I built a pedal housing a Rangemaster and a BuzzAround
with a rotary switch to flip the order of the FX. They were both Positive+ ground so it
seemed like a worthy task.

The result was much greater than the sum of their respective parts! The only amp it
doesn't completely "goose" in a wonderful way is my '62 Bassman 6G6-B. From SE types
to Komet and Express types this little guy punishes.

The AC125s weren't the final choice. I swung with NKT275s as I couldn't source any NKT213s. According to
Scotty (who has had 3 Burns BA pedals) The NKT275 doesn't sound any different and it was a better
grade xistor than the NKT213. YMMV

I knew someone would ask for MK1 guts :) It's actually not done yet. The case and circuit board are done waiting for wiring and transistors. I'm still testing transistors on the breadboard. I might have some OC75's and 2G381's coming soon. Hopefully I'll get some good ones. I can't wait to get it done. Even on the breadboard it's totally Mick Ronson. :headbanger:

Here are some guts:
