Echo Fuzz - MB Splunker
« on: March 13, 2023, 07:00:29 PM »
Just wanted to show some love to the Splunker.  I haven't seen any build reports, yet.  I think it's cool when the Jedi's of the pedal game do originals.   This is a fun pedal, gives an instant lead tone. 

I used some low Hfe 3904s for the fuzz side, nothing fancy.  The no-film gods were kind to me and I got a pretty good transfer  8)  It's been rough on the no-film front the past year or so.

Hell yeah!  I love the old horror movie vibe with the font and graphics.  Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Vincent Price... I'm a sucker for their flicks  8).

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Nice work! I'm super envious of the ones who can do the film/no-film and get their registration/alignment bang-on.

Apparently I need to build out my stash of horror movie fonts! That aesthetic works for me. Love the build.

This looks terrific.  I like the circuit too.  One of the guitar players I play with snagged it soon after it was boxed up and loves it.  I might have to put together another one.

Looking great!!!! What a tight fit, how nervous were you drilling that power jack? Not to far up not too far down, just right.

Thanks everyone!

Brian's cutout is pretty accurate for marking the side holes.  I did some machining when I was in college, so, I strive to have good holes (that came out weird  ::)).
