with detachable/replaceable board!
This is the Culturejam/Madbean Big Muff collaboration. The Gruntbox.
This is the Ram's Head version. I didn't have any 4pf caps around for C10, so I used 7pf. (CJ, just informed me it is 4nf, not 4pf. I should not drink when building. I will fix it now, while I am sober. I have now fixed the problem, so I am editing my review)
This beast sounds great. Tons of sustain and gain. Doesn't play to great with other drives or even my tube amps drive, but has enough gain on tap that it doesn't matter. Stand alone with a SS amp and this thing rocked. I am quite happy with this guy
I plan on building a few more versions and figured I don't need to have so many Muffs laying around.
Enclosures and 3PDts ain't cheap. So I made all the offboard wiring connections via sockets. If you want a different Muff version, all you have to do is pop the board out and stick the next one in. 10 seconds!
I have since figured out a way today to make the replacing of the board easier and sturdier. I will get it done this week.
And to let you know, these are some nice boards. Easy to use. I really abused some holes on this Muff, however it held up fine to all my prodding with my hot gun. The openings are just the right size. Big enough for any size component you may have, but still grabbed it tightly. You have to be able to feel it and make sure your lead doesn't slip out.
My fondling of the Muff left me with the satisfaction of dealing with an experienced pro, but with the exuberance of a first-timer.
Now to the pics:
