Great job Dave! I love the grid you used in the graphics. Very fitting for an f(x) build!

Very impressive, as usual. I was going to do ours as a Ffx triple but am now considering sticking the fuzzes into a 1590A. Purely because I can.

That's what I did.  I like the fuzzes in a 1590a with a toggle switch to choose which effect is active.

doesn't get much cleaner than that. the etch looks fantastic. a design of that type is so difficult 'cause any variation in the pattern sticks out like a sore thump,but you really pulled it off wonderfully.
tried lifting weights once....they were too heavy!

Indeedy. We've got it down to two knobs and a switch :) (bit of dual gang wafer swappage). Have to admit that Cleggy did the boards though. I tried but I couldn't see the resistors  :'(

That's a cool approach to the knobs.

Sometimes it is an advantage to keep them separate.  I usually set the two fuzzes differently, so I like being able to toggle between them without having to twiddle the controls.

that is one fine build. Wasn't expecting anything else when I saw your name as the author. What is the 4th knob on the grease gun? Pot instead of R7? what is that changing?

If you read Brian's build doc , it's an optional resistor that knocks down the bass a bit.  By turning it up, the bass comes back (and the gain seems to increase a touch as well).  I put it in the experiment with, but so far I think it sounds best stock.

Looks great Dave! How's it sound?
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

It sounds really good, actually.  I like the low gain drive of the GreaseGun quite a bit.  I could see it being very useful on a pedalboard.  I like the vibe, too.  I prefer the LFO on the sine to the choppy with this one.  I also think there is a slight treble roll-off with a drive pedal pushing it.  I noticed it with the GreaseGun and with a Klon.  I might tweak things a bit, but I like it even without any changes.

This etch, I can't even.

You've outdone yourself!
