    Finished up this one this morning. It's very close, if not exact to a Dwarfcraft - Great Destroyer. I love these crazy noise types of pedals but they really aren't for the typical guitar player. I have more fun with them running them with synths and drum machines.

    Damn knobs look so close in color in person. They seem off a bit in the pictures. Maybe I'll swap them out.

    Nice toy, congrats!

    I like the knobs, and think it looks like a good complement. You're picturing something that blends in more, though?

    Correct In person they match the enclose better. Also the led is green so in reality we have a few shades going on here.

    You built a very beautiful pedal. But the demos I heard make it sound like they were playing a guitar thru a tiny, cheap transistor AM radio. I don't understand the appeal.

    In person the sound is pretty powerful but it is an experimental/noise type of fuzz. As I mentioned in the the first post, it's not for your typical guitar player. I grew up on a lot of powernoise/industrial type of music so I have a lot of fun with these types of pedals whether it be with a guitar, drum machine or keyboard.

    Just my opinion but I don't feel like they sound like an AM radio. Just more like chaos.

    very cool.

    the coolest world-is-ending sounds I've ever made was with a fuzz, delay, trem and phaser simultaneously
