Function F(x) humble-brag
« on: June 14, 2017, 11:12:23 AM »
After an endless desert of product development we have finally arrived at a Function F(x) pedal oasis! Three new pedals getting released within the next couple of weeks.

Clusterfuzz Jr - CF in a 125B with three clipping options and an 8-Bit switch instead of a pot.
Accufunkture - Think Micro V envelope filter with some extra bells and updated for current production components
Cannon - Think Gary Clark Jr - octavia and Astrotone with our dual switching implementation

Not tryin to sell ya anything...just so happy to finally show what we've been doing for the last year! We've got two more coming pretty soon after these.

I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

cool to see some additions and congrats guys on your successful journey to pedal paradise!

What are the chinese (?) symbols on the accufuncture?

The new designs - except the CF Jr - are really different from the current pedals. Not a bad thing, but they don't have that function f(x) flair to me. just meant as constructive feedback.

is there a 'no clipping option' on the CF Jr.? and what does the toggle on the canon do? order switcher?

again, great to see you making progress

That's actually an earlier photo of a prototype.  It's at the bottom center on the real ones.

again, gra

Constructive criticism is always welcome.  The Cannon has a particular aesthetic as it is the signature pedal for Chicago blues artist Toronzo Cannon and that is his personal logo.  The choice of circuits was his as well.

The Accufunkture was just something different.  The theme seemed to fit with the name we gave it.

There is actually a clipping option on the CF Jr.  It's LED-OFF-Silicon

Yeah, it was pretty clear that some folks wanted smaller enclosures.
