Title: "Taishu" Fuzz
Post by: GammaFlex on June 30, 2014, 05:47:25 PM
So this is the Taishu, a fuzzface/tonebender hybrid. I'm happy with everything except a few crossed wires I don't feel like resoldering.

If you know what the name means, don't spoil it for everyone else ;)

I know what Taicho means from anime, but no idea on "Taishu". Google turned up a yakuza syndicate called Taishu-kai, and Babelfish claimed the English translation of Taishu is Taishu.

So, this pedal is criminally good? :) Looks dead neat anyway!

thanks alan, actually "Taishu" is the literal translation for "body stink" or in american english "BO" Doesn't make much sense but neither does every "Big Muff" or "Swollen Pickle" joke :D

I don't know how it smells, but it looks fantastic.
