A highlight of 2016
You may recognise the mug on the drum kit. I was pretty chuffed to see this photo, taken and shared by none other than Ricky Gervais - as it shows one of my pedals, the Double Arrow, on the David Brent's 'Foregone Conclusion' guitarist's board.
TB-3 tonebender build
Tonebender Mk III clone. This one has lots of mojo components, such as carbon comp resistors, Mullard C280 "tropical fish", ITT and Philips capacitors and selected Germanium transistors.
There's also an onboard voltage inverter discreetly tucked away, which means it can share power supplies with other pedals.
I ostensibly built it for myself, but as usual, if anyone fancies it, just holler!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2016 was a bit bonkers. Too much questionable politics, too many deaths. Here's hoping 2017 is kinder to us all.
Apologies for the radio silence and lack of updates. I had to take some timeout from making pedals this year due to illness, but I'm back on the horse now and taking orders again.
Just recently I've completed a couple of nice pedals.
Twin Peaks dual dirt pedal
This comprises a Rat clone and a modified TS in a single enclosure. Lovely silver sparkle finish on this one.
The Fuzz Buddy is based on the Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz, with a volume recovery stage, scoop mod and more range on the fuzz control. An utterly nasty, snarling, little beastie!
Tone Rodent Plus triple pedal
This has the Vox Treble/Bass Booster, Distortion and Repeat Percussion effects in one enclosure. Unpainted with dymo labels finish.
I'm Mark. I LOVE effect pedals. I started out making them for myself. I have 'quite a few'.
