a deliberately minimalist mk1 variant built for a fuzz fan in Birmingham - with a few tweaks and changed values - mainly a third pot (in place of the resistor from emitter to ground on Q1) and smaller output cap...

I have boards wired up for 5 more of these that I plan to sell on the eeb (with graphics) this year if I get it together.

PS - most of my pedals are in an exhibition of sorts at Stratford tube station - check my blog...

simonm, That's a fabulous display of your handiwork. You should very proud.

John, Your stuff always has me questioning whether you've airbrushed the pattern
on in a Faux style but closer inspection reveals labor intensive use of Ma Nature's
range-fed byproducts. Folks, see his Rattlesnake suited guitar w/ matching headstock
for another example of his very capable skills.

That Lace wood is so-o-o 3D compared to anything in this hemisphere. Granted
there is terrifically figured wood to be had but the Lace wood has "the chain put away
'cause it's off it".

Really nice examples gentlemen,

Noel Grassy.

PS: Sickle, are you teasing about locking this thread? I don't know enough about
protocol to know when someone is being facetious or not. I think you're enjoying
these too much to possibly miss God's own FX should it get posted. :hmm:

thanks Noel!

I'm excited today becuz
a) I'm doing a solo gig tonight - first in quite a while, and
b) just heard that there's going to be a poster of my guitars to promote the exhibit (the pedals would have been cooler, but still pleased).

My newly built turretboard MK1. Trannies are OC75, OC71 and CV7003.
And a long MP3 demo (like 9 minutes long). It was recorded with a Tele with an SD Little 59 into a Fulltone Clyde then the MK1 direct to the comuter via a small mixer. I used clean British amp simulation in Logic which sounds pretty cruddy. The pedal sounds much better through a real amp. It's mostly Ronson stuff with a bit of Dave Dee and Yardbirds toward the end.

Looks cool sonic.
Is that the board I sold you?
I've been meaning to make up a pedal size turret board with that stuff for a while now.
