This makes me happy. Though we were never a company.

Congratulations on the great review! Wish it had come earlier for you guys.

Nice, good to see you two getting some recognition!!

Just out of curiosity, what did they have to cover with the electrical tape?

Some Marshall logos. From what I remember when Luke mopped up all our valve pedals: there's a JCM 800, JTM 48, and Soldano Atomic 16 pre-amps (they have slight modifications to make them work as pedals), and a pair of Big Baby's which are our own thing. Only 4 of those ever made it out into the world, sound engineers in particular seem to love that one. Especially into a DI and then into the desk. That and the Baby Boobtube are easily my favourite valve effects that we made.

Great stuff. Too bad those are no longer available. Really loved building those and I haven't seen anything comparable since.
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

My projects are labeled Quantum Effects. My shared OSH park projects: https://oshpark.com/profiles/m-Kresol

The JCM version lives in a buddy's rig and the Atomic 16 lives in mine.  I really enjoyed those builds.  It would be cool to see a whole series of pre's built on the platform.
