First Build Report - Franky
« on: May 11, 2018, 01:22:54 PM »
Greetings! I've bummed around this forum for quite a while and have popped in here and there but mostly I lurk in the shadows... But this latest build was too fun not to share. I wanted an end-all over drive for a new band I've been playing with and this was my solution. It starts with a Madbean Mudbunny built to Green Russian specs with NOS Transistors and Diodes that I was fortunate enough to receive from thesmokingman (X-Files is my favorite show!) during the holiday PIF-a-thon. Then it goes into a Green Ringer clone from PedalPCB. Next is a JHS Haunting Mids clone from PedalPCB (super fun for filter sweeps!) and finally into a 2-knob SHO from Guitar PCB. Not the cleanest guts I've pulled of but I don't have as much time to put in to that stuff as I used to! A dear friend of mine named Mary (http://www.hoteldanger.com/) did the fantastic artwork for me after I told her it was a sort of Frankenstein assembly of circuits. She nailed it! I have a few more builds I'll probably share in the future, but many thanks to Brian for the incredible projects and this wonderful forum and thanks to all of you for the years of knowledge and trouble shooting!

Love to hear it! Sounds really interesting.
I sometimes build pedals as "Dan"
I built peddles for Bat Thumbís car.

Hey, thanks everyone! It was a super fun build. I'll try and get some video of it eventually. The Green Ringer clone with the muff sounds sooooooo awesome. It's like a giant evil robot hell bent on taking over the world.

When you get around to it, you'll love it! I've built quite a few Russian Muffs and this one by far takes the cake. Thanks again for the PIF!
