It's the same circuit essentially, the pinch knob is in series with the 100k feedback resistor from the emitter of Q1 to the base of Q2. This reduces the feedback voltage which throws the bias out, whilst also raising the apparent gain allowing the second transistor to be driven into cutoff.

If you have a cheap Dunlop silicon ff, you could mod it to do the same thing by adding a pot.

We're going to become famous just like them.

And I recall this board (though not specifically the K&Ts) made it into a magazine years back. I forgot which one, but that's where the text at the bottom of the page came from

Any tips for painting a pedal enclosure? Was just going to clean it with white spirit then spray a couple of coats of paint.

The best tip is to make peace with the fact that the pain is probably going to chip and wear very easily.

The usual Hammond enclosures just don't seem to take paint well. Zack uses some sort of automotive urethane lacquer to make his more robust, but it's still not easy to get the primer to adhere properly.

Thanks Jaicen! I still find it interesting that Z Vex has to pay someone loyalty fee for the WM if it's just a Fuzz Face clone.

Damn, at least it'll look good for a wee while.

I take it using some clear lacquer on top doesn't make much difference then, if the paint doesn't stick very well? Halfords has car stuff so might try that. Shame there weren't any anodised enclosure in stock when I bought this.

Don't get the Halfords stuff, it's full of plasticizers so it never gets fully hard.
I have been burned by that, I'll show you an example in the morning

What peddle did you end up building?

On the one pedal that I successfully built, I tried swirling the enclosure, but it went horribly wrong. I guess they're made of different materials or something

I mentioned this to you recently. Someone's uploaded a demo



Apparently those on TGP can hear the difference between this and an original. I guess you can only hear it if you spend $2000 on an original.

They can hear a difference via YouTube's lossy encoding algorithm?

Then they have better ears than mine,and I listen for a living.

Exactly. They said it sounds boxy and harsh :-(

You listen to gear demos on youtube for a living? Fair enough.

Somebody critiqued 60cycle hum for an unboxing and review vid and they took offense to them taking an amp out of the box off screen
Comments section is a wasteland!

Also, my Wampler Tumnus has never been switched off.

You have a 510 bridge on your guitar, yes? Have you ever had a problem getting the third string through the tailpiece?



Because of that. I ruined two strings trying to get it to fit.
