Awesome. I like the pedal number 3 the most and the last one, which one are they? But the third in line that you play for every riff really speaks to me.

Haven't had a chance to listen to the video, but I can't get over how much I love the Meathead.  SO simple, soooo nice.

I'm guessing 1&2 are the miss and 3 is the meathead and the last one is the tonebender.

Pretty sure 3 is right because the others have two out the knobs each.

woops just saw these comments! sorry, fuzz brethren. Pedals are:

Visual Sound Angry Fuzz, Tonebender MKII (w/ fuzz central mods), Big Muff (tri), Big Muff (green rsn), DAM Meathead

in that order. Pedal number 3 was the Big Muff built to Madbean triangle specs. All fuzzes were set to about equal volume level. I thought that they sound similar recorded and yet I hold on to them all :)

which layout/pcb and transistors did you use in that Meathead? It sounds super clear and nice, I wanna build it.

iirc, it was built on tagboardfx vero layout and those specs :) Thanks for the previous kind words on the Muff, my first Muff build. I feel the Russian is under represented and doesn't record as well or display the bass much, still a keeper
