Gotta empty 1590B..
« on: January 15, 2013, 03:15:16 PM »
I bought a batch of those blemished boxes from Mammoth and not sure what to do with one of them.  It looks nice: Black metallic sparkle.. but it's got like 5 16mm pot holes..  I'm thinking maybe my first trem ala Tremelous Lune but I'm open to other ideas..  What would you do with it?  I have some UV leds that would reflect nice I figure.  Pilfered a black light from work.

I ordered some blems from Mammoth and I got a five knobber as well, just not in as sexy a color as yours (somewhere between Daphne Blue and Seafoam Green - bleh).

Possible ideas

Sparkplug - nice OD, got full range of controls, five knobs one toggle.
Screwdriver (Cosmo) as previously mentioned
Fatpants/Afterlife combo with the toggle in the fifth hole.
Double flush, mount the flashing LED in the fifth hole and the 3PDT led down below.
Jacob's Fuzzy muff with external bias control, switchable diodes, and an OD/fuzz switch.
The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
