Fuzz prototype update



In an effort to improve the 8-Bit fuzz (and possibly make it Bass guitar friendly) I started working on this prototype. The knobs are as follow: thickness selector, gain, input bias, - cut, + cut, feedback recovery, volume, and a focus switch. Expect to see add-on options for the 8-Bit Fuzz in the future. Controls to adjust the amount of glitch (sonic stability control) and to increase the sustain should be available soon.

Napkin rehousing project

After speaking with a client he requested that his tone generator be rehoused from its cigar box into a steel napkin dispenser. The difficult part was fitting everything into a smaller face while clearing the internal springs of the napkin dispenser. This is what I received to work with:



A quick scan and some measurements of the internals gave me a layout that would be acceptable. This involved quite a bit of measuring to keep the components clear from any moving parts.



Once the drilling was completed it was a matter of lengthening wires to make it all fit and populating the casing.



And there we have it, a completed rehousing.
