Excellent work thats one of the main things that I wanted on the original.

Will this one have a louder output than its predecessor?

What about the input levels, are they as well modular level?
That's my issue with the original version, bringing input down to a level where
the fuzz knob still has a function. ;) Post amplification is a no brainer with gozinta. If yes then i'll probably do the upgrade :)

cheers,
bj

I'll bring one to the modular meeting in the Netherlands.

I just popped this in my case and have been warming and distorting my Buchla. It has quite a large range. That's to say that it isn't running into full-on distortion at all times.

I'll post a demo at some point if possible.

aaah September will be an expensive month, plenty of cool toys will be released... :moneyburn:

Kent, you can't stop putting euro stuff into your Buchla? :twisted:
I'll check that meeting, maybe i can make it, i would love to check the fuzz before September :)

Cheers,
BJ

Kent, how did the Fuzz fare at the meeting?
And what are you actually running through it? External signals or sounds from within your Buchla?
Cheers,
Björn

Oh, man... I suck. :cry:

Way too many things going on. I'll crank out some demos very soon. Sorry about that. Either tonight or tomorrow for certain. It's a really good fuzz for modulars.
