MKI.5 with OC75's. Gnarlier and rougher sounding than the OC84 model. :rainbow2:

Also, it's copper, or bronze, or brown, or red...the thing is a damn chameleon! :oops:

Batch #3. It's gold, but more gold. The plan was to make these minus the sneaky little R/C mod, the 'dirty hippie' mod as it's affectionately become known. Warm weather. Sounds like ass. Point proven. Said it before, I'll say it again. The MKI.5 circuit with the OC75's is very very unstable. Too much of a temperature swing either which way and your pleasing fuzz tone becomes a horn section of farting bears wielding broken trumpets.
The basic modification I first implemented on the Puke Bender simply gives the circuit greater breathing room at warmer temperatures with the OC75's installed. As I've stated before, it does not alter the original tone of the circuit nor is it akin to re-biasing the circuit with a trimmer pot or other such witchcraft. Side by side with a good example of a vintage MKI.5 it is the same deal, just this won't sound like ass biscuits on a warm summer day. Oh, and it's gold. Did I mention that?

FYI - I've added links to new batch announcements on page 1, just in case you want to check details, pictures, sound clips blah, blah, blah

oh yeah, FYI part II - the numbering on these continues from the Puke Bender, being as it's the same circuit type.

Will there be any made without the mod? I want to achieve this horn section of farting bears wielding broken trumpets tone. I think it could nail the sound in my head that I have been looking for ages

So - I have a dilemma !

I have a 1.5 waiting list , with lots of names and copper/goldie next to them

So this is gold but with the copper circuit - who do i inform ??

Do some people want the pedal because its Gold ? Do other folks want it for the OC75 ??

Ive decided to treat all on the list as a potential buyer and ask for clarification

Also - this list is a bit of a mess as there are notes on it that I obviously understood when I wrote them but now I have absolutely no idea what hey mean - so this is actually a long overdue exercise

I think its only fair that I offer them to the people who have been waiting so long before I start a new dirty hippy/bear fart/broken trumpet list


please dont kill me
