Title: Portafuzz pedalpcb b side fuzz
Post by: harryklippton on April 01, 2021, 07:07:53 PM
I assembled this maybe last June and only just boxed it. I redid the decal twice cuz i kept goofing it. It sounds good and is useful. I'm a big fan of that tascam distortion!

I can't decide if i like the blue knobs or the white. What do y'all think?

You should try this circuit! I have a 424 mkii and a 414 mkii that I use quite a bit

Very cool. I, too, am a lover of the blue.  :)

That is one of the best sounding pedals out there IMO. The Mid-Fi electronics guy knows what is up.

My vote is for the white, because it reminds me more of the original consoles, but really it doesn't matter cause they both look cool.

I fixed up a cheap four track tascam and flipped it last year. I kind of wish I had held onto it, but I'm already sitting on enough gear that doesn't get used regularly.
