    Great stuff Kent. These boxes are really a work of art. I love how each is individually designed. I was lucky enough to snag the General Mayhem #1. Killer fuzz, sounds great. Kent's gotta be the nicest guy to deal with too. Thanks again!

    Benders (your choice) $90 *note* - since those pics, I changed out the switch washers on both to a regular round washer and put the lock washer inside the box*

    [​IMG]

    Square Wave Generator - IC based overdrive/fuzz, includes extra IC to swap in and out $75
    [​IMG]

    Phaser, youtube is a MUST SEE (up above) very tweakable $150 (I might say 'NO!' when you inquire on this one lol)
    [​IMG]

    Clone of a Coloursound One Knob Fuzz (huh?) with added gain and bias controls. Polished box is unfinished, can be easily cleaned up if you scuff it with fine steel wool or 1000+ grit wetsanding or even a car polisher. GERMANIUM TRANSISTORS very much like a Fuzz Face. $70

    My personal RAT. LM308, yes. 3-way clipping diodes even/odd and LED's. $125. I might say 'NO!' when you inquire on this one too ;)

    NOTE: center bar of the mousetrap is NOT fastened down, though it's tight enough at the joint that it doesn't 'float' much if you leave it alone.

    My personal Big Muff - op-amp version, sounds G I G A N T I C $100 (yes, base is slightly mis-matched for colour)
    [​IMG]

    BYOC Leeds Fuzz with the keto touch $60
    [​IMG]

    Prototype Shin-Ei Fuzz. Take a good close look, the reflective tape isn't cut that well and I got some overspray on the tape around the edges. Violet 10mm LED may be a little loose, I'll double check it and if need be superglue it a bit before I ship. Sounds fantastic. $60

    Marshall Guv'nor clone. Paint job has a pretty good chip in it, I'll take a fresh pic tomorrow and post detail. Great sounding OD/Distortion unit, the magic is in the mids control! $70 unless my son claims it ;)
    [​IMG]

    Another Bender, I have to replace the circuit in this one so maybe a 1 week wait. High gain silicon Tone Bender variant, with switchable output cap for more sustain and bottom. Box may have slight imperfections (I'm posting from away from home, will update 8/20). $75

    MORE COMING FRIDAY 8/20

    Side note, I made a Bee Baa for Scott a while back but it's not *quite* right. I've been working on fine tuning it, and even thought I had my hands on some old original Japanese transistors, but it looks like I'm getting screwed in that ebay transaction. GRRRRRRR. Did find some of the *other* transistors I needed (again, don't have them in hand yet but it was a more recent order) so still working on it....but, as I have told Scott, all he has to do is say the word for an instant refund I am 100% committed to customer satisfaction.

    No worries, I am sure you will get it sorted eventually. Bummer about the ebay thing. EBAY does tend to suck at times!?!??!

    Left - BYOC Big Muff/Large Beaver. Built to Ram's Head specs. Lettering is under clearcoat. $60

    Middle - BYOC 250+ . No lettering or clearcoat, $50 as is (I'll throw in knobs of your choice, will send you a pic with selection available). Built it with asymetrical clipping, sounds great.

    Right - Red Llama clone. No clearcoat over letters, which are just stickers. Box is a Hammond pre-painted that black and seems VERY durable. Fantastic sounding OD, fuzzy as you turn it way up, I can see why it has the solid reputation it does...very FAT. $50

    All 3 of these have a battery snap. Most of the ones above do not, but talk to me if you want one added.

    Just bumping this thread for a great pedal builder. Any chance for an updated inventory list on these pedals?

    I should have posted, I'm essentially on hiatus right now. I'll do a pic and price list of what's on hand in the next few days.

    Bumping a very old thread. Just played through my General Mayhem Fuzz and the Luna Fuzz I picked up from Kent years ago. (The Luna Fuzz has been on my board for years now). Curious as to what happened to the pedal building. Love these pedals.
