Not the best pics, but pretty stoked to have these :party:
The Park and yellow Hit It bender have almost identical circuits but don't sound much alike, yellow is a particularly nasty one :badteeth:

Hey Nick! I picked both up on Marktplaats over the past couple weeks, believe it or not.

Both needed some work (yellow has the plastic Erie pots and one was bust, B1 codes btw) but sound absolutely amazing, yet totally different.

I just love these upside-down units with the 680k/100k bias string, they seem more primitive, looser feeling than the later ones.
Which is especially true for the yellow one, that thing is pretty wild and gated when on full, like someone is shoveling gravel through your speaker, in an oddly pleasant way.

Do we still do datedumps btw? I always check here when buying something old but couldn't find much/any on these combinations of boards and enclosures.
I could snap a bunch of pics next time I have them on the work bench.

Wow the yellow looks and sounds like my kind of pedal. Have you tried it on bass?

No, I haven't, yet
It's a wild one for sure, even does some octave-up when played high up the neck with the fuzz set low, pretty retarded but I love it :badteeth:
