Tone Bender MKII for the auction
« on: April 06, 2022, 04:08:41 PM »
My laser is being a pain in the dick lately, it's a 3018 so it's a two step process to start with, laser -> hours of chipping away with anything pointy. Only now moreso. Tone Bender MKII 'Professional' which seemingly means 100k instead of 47k on Q2C that I changed back.

I remembered the last one I built was a bit quiet maxed out, someone once said on a forum "Take the output directly from the collector of Q3, it's ... louder". Yeah, turns out they weren't joking, this is the loudest thing I've ever built. Birds fell out of the sky when I turned it on, and I was wearing headphones. I'm going to have to rewire it because christ, if someone bids on it on the auctions then they're probably not after a sound that sailors fear. I've yet to build a disappointing fuzz with AC125s, either they made them different to other germs or I've just been super lucky.

That looks pretty tastey inside and out.  I like the copper vein and the laser work looks really nice in the pictures.  My Neje is kinda hit or miss and I picked up some fine point paint markers to try and spice it up a bit but it still ends up looking like it was done by a 2 year old.  I like the definition on yours.
