The EHX/JHS collab came out a couple days ago and looks to be a mash-up of a couple well-known Tim Escobedo circuits. I breadboarded it yesterday and it sounds good so I made a quick Etcher's Paradise project if you want to DIY your own PCB. I put in some suggestions and added a couple optional mods, too.

Sweet! I'll have to take a look at this one. Dumb question: were you able to breadboard it on a single "slab" ? (That's not the nameÖ) I'm guessing so, but thought I'd ask. Thanks, Brian!

I like the clipping options. How does the fuzz sound with the led?

Has anyone even taken delivery of an official unit yet?! Did you figure this all out from watching the announcement video?

Nope, they havenít starting shipping yet. Apparently, in the video the board is held up. I didnít watch the whole thing. I did preorder a nano, though.

Sounding pretty gnarly. I wanted to use a 14mm pot and I only had a 5kC. So, I dropped a 3k3 in parallel to make a 2k pot and used that for the balanced control. Makes it rather unruly in some settings. I like it but I may tweak it a bit more. Might try to dial out a little low end. Overall, it sounds great!

Can probably increase R4, R6 and R7 to 22K too for more fun.

Some art. Not mine, but art nonetheless.

All done! I replaced the RED LED with a clear white. It changes the front end attack quite a bit and sounds rad. really happy how this turned out.
