Super rad! I have yet to try and tackle one of those.

:) Thanks man. The musicpcb board is a breeze, and the opamp and vactrols are easy to come by. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Yeah man that was my first try at a square/rectangular hole in an enclosure. I used about 5 holes and then a 28 tooth blade on my coping saw to get it close, and then used a triangular chainsaw file to get it flat. It's not perfect, but you really have to look close to see any small imperfections ;)

Well I finished it, and it's fantastic. Definitely needed a boost to really crush amps. I put a boost after the muff volume with a toggle for 2 resistors on a toggle so the max volume has 2 different settings. Loud and Loud AF..

These really do sustain for days. Days. :joy:

Well my super opamp muff is almost done. It's your basic opamp muff, but the 6x1N914 diode clipping section is replaced by a 6 position rotary with various options there, a Pharaoh type tonestack, though I'm going to tweak the values a bit to match the opamp sound, and then the two volume level mode toggle.

Built a custom Violet Rams Head muff with a mid toggle, and clipping toggle. It turned out pretty good, I hope the guy I built It for loves it as much as I do. I had a hard time sending it away. :erm:

I also just got Arcadiator and Darkadiator boards from Fredrik. So hopefully I'll be building one or both of those this weekend.

I'll update with pics

You some some fancy Trombetta-style knobs on there.

It sounds good, huh? :snax:

Yeah I love those knobs. I put them on a lot of stuff, they come in a chicken head shape too!

Yeah it sounds amazing. I used MPSA18's for Q1 and Q4, and 2N4401's for Q2 and Q3.. it has blue Led clipping on a toggle with the stock 1N4148, the blue LEDs are loud AF, and I put them next to the stomp toggle there on either side so you can watch them clip.

I'll be building another pretty soon. I built 4 muffs in a row so I need a break to do something else.. my Parasit boards or maybe the twin peaks..
