Build one. You just need a toggle, a transistor socket and then a fairly accurate meter to get 2.743 or something megaohms resistance. This method will also let you figure the leakage which is super important in Ge stuff. The tagboard design is great and with a little toggle wizardry you can have it set up for PNP and NPN :)

For sure. I like the 'tremolo' mod and a couple of the glitch/synthy ones.

I bought the black anniversary one just to mod since it has the big through hole circuit board still, but I haven't gotten to it yet :erm:

And - just because - a Bazz Fuss with all 5 components in sockets. Oversized R/C and Russian D/Q for starters.

Here's a pic to celebrate a successful debugging of the Hyperion 2, which sounds great amidst the other mayhem :)

I'm also pleased that chained with all my other pedals the oscillation is a little more usable than it is on its own.

The next thing I'd like to do is add some sockets for the transistors in the Random Number Generator and see what else it can do (it's fun but a little limited compared to a proper one so it's worth a try).

After that I want to go back to the OK on a breadboard and see if I can make one work :)

Finally got around to boxing the Hapalochlaena (Frostwave Blue Ringer v.2). On slow frequencies, the tremolo vibe is amazing. On higher frequencies, the bell clangs are crystalline. Just awesome.
