Hummer (Triangle-ish Big Muff with Mids control)
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:12:43 AM »
Another day, another Muff  :)

I built this one for a guy who loves his Skreddy Mayo, but wished it had more control over the mids, and a tad more gain on tap.

He is a massive Smashing Pumpkins fan so the name was his idea.

The PCB is my standard 'Tesla Cannon' Big Muff PCB, but with some tweaks to get a tad more saturation and gain going on (larger coupling caps, lower value emitter resistors etc.).

I used 2N5088 transistors (I usually use BC184C's or BC550C's) to bump the gain up even further.

Hope you like the pic's!

I already told you so a couple of times, but I love your style so much man!
Looks fantastic, really a nice professional look without looking like a fabricated pedal, but still having a bit of that hand-made vibe.
Loving the fonts a ton.

Really smooth pedal man!
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Siamese Dream is one of my favourite albums of all time.  Love this.
