Rosac Nu-Fuzz

Rosac Nu Fuzz, small silver hammerite case, tagboard construction, blue l.e.d., a great sound from this little circuit which is similar to the Mosrite Fuzzrite.

Here is a photo of the mk1 'test' pedal I have been using to check potential transistors

Tonebender mk1 #4

After extensive transistor testing using a 'test' pedal with sockets and trimpots I finally found a nice combination of transistors to do a new batch of Tonebender mk1s.  This ones for Bart from the Discofreq effects site.

Rosac Nu-Fuzz (sneak preview)

Coming soon!

Circuit Bent and rehoused Danelectro BLT slap echo

The final 'ECHO' pedal, a circuit bent and rehoused Danelectro slap echo for Steve.  Increased depth control, added echo, repeat, and level controls, true bypass, 9v DC input.  The switch at the back initialises the pedal so its ready for use (its fooling the original circuit into thinking its been 'stomped').  All the on board wiring (to tiny  surface mount components in some cases) has been hot glued and is super solid.  The original boards have been taped together then attatched to the case with velcro.  Sounds great, far more versatile than the original and can self oscillate.  Here's what Steve says - "Thanks recieved the echo pedal today - its got a real unique sound really like it and its so much more versatile so many thanks again...The echo repeats sound great just on the verge of feedback like an old binson ehorec, real one off, no other echo pedals sound like this one."

LM386 mini amp

Little chip amp for Marc in Switzerland.  9v DC input, Mullard input cap, level and gain controls.

Noystoise workstation

In my opinion one of the best circuit benders out there at the moment, check out his Blog for more rehousing genius.

Real FY-2 versus replica

Dave sent me some pics of his original Shin-Ei FY-2 next to the replica I made for him!

MTO on Hong Kong TV

Some great footage of Modified Toy Orchestra from Hong Kong TV, must have been done recently when they were over there.

Interesting Ebay 10

Theres a lot of people selling Circuit Bent instruments on Ebay at the moment, I have stopped selling Bent stuff pretty much to focus on the pedals, though I AM still bending instruments for Windscale.  Saw this Bent Speak and Maths on Ebay and was very impressed, a very comprehensive version of my favourite 'Speak'.
