Cool beans! 

Does the Promenade have 1 filter or 2 filters (like the original bassballs)? I'm not good enough at reading schematics to tell  ???

Cheers!

It has two filter stages in series, the only difference being the first is tuned for low frequencies and the second for high frequencies (note the difference in cap values b/w C9/10 and C11/12.

Cool!
What are the differences between the Epipen and the FatPants jr., other than the Volume knob? Is this the 1590B version, just as the Imp is the 1590B of a previous A version?

They are different in a couple of ways:
-The EpiPen is much closer to the ClinchFX one than the FatPants because of the unique gain control (on the FatPants it's just a plain volume).
-The EpiPen has more super clean output even with the MORE switch engaged, IMO. FatPants gets a little more hairy.

Either are just fine and if you already built the FatPants and are happy with it the EpiPen might be redundant for you. But, since I no longer offer that project I figured I'd do something new and a bit different this time (also because I don't plan on doing any more 1590A projects).
