Perfect! These should be my first build since the kids came along.
VFE boards already sold out or cart bug?

Sorry, hit a wrong button. Nothing to see here!

Major bummer. Here's hoping the box is buried under blankets or whatnot.

Hey, TN. 9v is no problemo but the 3005 comes alive with higher voltage (but no higher than 15V!). Much like the mn3007 for chorus/flanger builds...
Need some pics. Both sides of the board.

I'm a big fan of the Mysterioso but it is NOT a fuzz monster like the Snark or HT. It excels at taking a clean channel and OD'ing it quite nicely.

The mysterioso is lowest noise level but isn't a gain box in my opinion. The HT was a bit noisier but it was a vero vs. fabb'd PCB. I never tested the snark vs the HT w/ the tone stack disabled. Hard to say which can go louder as they both go loud as hell!

Also, the gain on the HT is seriously bunched up at the end of the 2M gain pot's rotation. I tried the 'fix' mentioned on the vero link above and thought it killed the pedal

Hey, Thomas. I found the 4049 version of Hot Tubes (vero avail @ to be very similar to the Snarkdoodle/Red Llama/Tube Fuzz--with possibly more gain when dimed & a tone control. The Mysterioso is it's own beast. It can go filthy with the gain & boost knobs cranked but I find it excels in taking a clean amp and making it sound pleasantly over-driven rather than fuzz'd out.

FWIW, I parted out my HT vero as I already had a Snarkdoodle--didn't need 2. I think Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth used an old Hot Tubes on her bass back in the ~90s.
Rump Roast
Fish Face
PCB mounted pot BMP (< any chance of having the mid pot AND a tone removal switch?)

...I got my sub mini version of the Rump Roast going. Mother of god it sounds good! Hands down one of the best overdrives I've played.

A bit loud.

Very interesting...

I like to run an exacto blade down each lengthwise gap (between pads) after all the soldering is done--just to be certain no solder jumped the shark!
