New Benco Box

This one is my new fav for boosting my amp and/or other pedals.
It's a light OD with clean signal blend, also a treble booster toggle switch.

My own version of a Dan Armstrong Green Ringer modified to have more fuzz and blendable Ge and Si diodes

The "Black Lightning MKII" bass fuzz/overdrive. My own take on the classic Bazz Fuss

Nice bunch of builds Ben :tu: :crackjam:

I'm curious about you Ge/Si blender.
How did you build that?
Any schematic of that part?

Holy shit! I think I'm in love!
Behold Joe Davisson's mighty "JFET Vulcan" in all its face-melting glory!
First is in the stock mode with just the addition of a low pass filter

Second is with some extra diodes added for the hell of it

I added some slight tremolo to my vibrato, it's pretty cool, pitch and volume warble. I added a second speed control on a footswitch and put the depth on an internal trim pot.
