Uggo Boxes for Uggo Fuzzies
« on: September 16, 2014, 04:12:09 PM »
Hey - leggo my uggo!   ;D (I think these boxes have that fugly duckling, only a mother can love thing going on)

Built up a couple fuzzies; an ROG Whisker Biscuit and an Escobedo Jinx fuzz on a capsnsuch pcb!  8) NOS pcb goodness right there!

The finishes are an inspired by Rej, 'destroyed in northern Canada' look with multiple coats of contrasting paint hit violently with a belt sander. I enjoy the weird, random results. We have too much light here in California to properly photograph these; they are much more dark and mysterious than they appear in my awful photographs. And look out - Morgan bought an old school Dymo label maker! Look forward to every pedal I ever build going forward being emblazoned with embossed stick on labels.   :D

In love with both circuits. The WB is muff based and is the first muff variant I can remember not immediately wanting to sell. I'm just not typically a big muff guy. But the suggested ROG tweaks to the tone control are magic and I enjoy this one immensely. And the Jinx fuzz got stuck right to my pedal board -  The bias knob varies it from OD sounding to glitchy, which lets you dial it in to be usable for chords or for just single notes. Can't believe I haven't tried this one before. It's a simple circuit that i highly recommend.  :D

Oh, and Brian's current Fatpants project doc has a killer drilling template for fitting top mounted jacks on a 1590B, for those who care...   ;)

These look great Morgan. The outside is beautifully ugly :) and the insides are just beautiful.  Where can I get that Escobedo fuzz pcb?  Great job.

Nice job, Morgan!

Almost forgot I even did that Jinx layout.  ;D

Where can I get that Escobedo fuzz pcb?

I'll look around and see if I can find one. If not, I can order some.

Ha ha! I had to look that one up. They certainly are gritty! And the smoke from the nearby wildfire makes the pics look a bit noirish.  ;)

Well done Morgan! But you're much more brutal than me... belt sander ain't for the faint of heart! 8)

Digging the Dymo label on these... did a built little time ago, bare enclosure with P-Touch labeling... at first i was thinking of getting an etched plate for it, but i now really dig that labeling..lol.
