Prolly the triangle and then the civil war. I've spent the least time w/ the civil war so maybe it's just the new-ness. But they're all pretty cool, even the opamp!

My personal Gruntbox is a Triangle with BC549s.

But have built a couple of Ram's Heads for friends, and I like those, too. And 'Bean's Darkside is a killer rendition of Cornish's G-2, which I loved! (customer build)

It's kind of like picking your favorite ice cream. Their all good!

Very nice! I have a couple of Gruntbox boards hanging around that I need to populate. I even had a little ink stamp made for labeling last year, because I had planned on building around a dozen to sell. But, then things just sort of took off here, and  I never got around to it.

FYI: I've actually got a new muff board almost ready to go. It's going to be a little smaller than the Gruntbox and have one extra feature on it. It's actually the Mudbunny, but generalized to accommodate any number of Muff builds.
Things are fine, actually.

Hey guys,

one of those red boards misteriously made its way over here and so I had no choice but to make a Violet Rams head version. Sounds pretty cool.

It's right what they say - you can never get enough of a good muff!!

Used bits from a couple of sources over here, including a guy called Dr Tweak. He does an enclosure kit with all the jacks, Leds, bezel and switches for a really good price. All you need is to get your pots, knobs and then drop your board in and off you go.

That reminds me...I need to email Dr. Tweak! I hear he's got lots of good stuff over there.
