Iv had such a hectic January, so little time for my selfish tinkering projects........so here are the noncommissioned/commercial purely for me/loved ones build I have on the go, and want to finnish before the end of the month!

1981 Big Box Rat - finally got the green caps though to replace the polly boxes, and some germanium diodes (1N34A) for a little clipping mod

Park Fuzz - just waiting on some transistor sockets and a few transistors so the pedal can tell me if it wants be be a Park/VOX/TB!!!
(any tips on what diode to use what?)

B&M Champion Fuzz Unit - waiting on a few parts and seeing what pots I can get way with!


............so what's on your workbench!

I have black box sovtek muff that's waiting assembly. The poor thing was used as spares and the box was raped. It's gonna be good, had to replace a two trannies, a few resistors and capacitors but all and all it's pretty much rewiring the thing and putting new pots as only one of the originals seems to be useworthy.

Right now my workbench lives in my head and I am obsessed with the Jordan Boss Tone, it's different circuit configurations & component values, and it's history.

Those boards you are working on look good, peps1!
