Kris- You know I am!

I must confess, from a new-be Fuzz Fanatic... I'm totally consumed by these gems.

And yes the Eye is magic and the MKI a true "Beast"!!

And although I was slow to warm up to the two tranny, now it's my fav!

Thanks so much for the hook up! It changed me musically forever.

What you have here is a Cry Baby built in a similar way to the Vox grey wah's. I used an old Cry Baby case I have had kicking around for years,
probably had it when I was last playing pubs and clubs. It is little bit beaten up but it is solid and does the job well.

I spoke to Stu Castledine about inductors and the potentiometers and he was kind enough to supply them for this project. Stu hand wound the
inductor, I think his winding machine was on the blink and in for repair at the time. Stu does such beautiful work. So I was so pleased
that he did them for us.

The circuit is grey Vox style, but using Crybaby parts values, just as you requested. Otherwise everything else is similar to the grey Vox. The board
is NOS perfboard (no copper strips) it has a very nice dark chocolate brown colour to it. I put in a negative tip socket for you as the old case had the
hole there already. I have had it on test for the last couple of days and it sounds just fine to me, probably mainly due to Stu's lovely inductor!

Yeap, as far as I know that's the only difference.
The chicken knobs are deep red actually.
