So my Lunar Incantation kit (PCB, resistors, caps, trannies) came in the mail today and I built her up.

Only the second pedal I've ever built (first was a Ghost Pep kit) but didn't have any problems at all. Followed Ian's PDF guide and everything worked first time (I may have actually learned a thing or two from building the last one). The plastic standoffs I had were a little too big for the PCB so I threw some foam in there, which seems to be working a treat.
Didn't get much of a chance to play but the quick blast I gave it sounded GREAT - nasty, raspy, with the blend and tone controls working nicely.
Thanks, Ian! :thumb:

Right, so I needed to demo this track for bandmates and figured I'd use the Lunar Incantation for the guitars (although I also used a Ghost Warmjet).
Recorded into Garageband with a dodgy old Superscope Mic I scored from a friend running into an Apogee Jam. Rhythm guitar full left is an SG Jr with the Lunar Incantation into a Vox AC4TV. Full right is a Jazzmaster with the Lunar Incantation and the Vox. Guitar doing the single note stuff (almost in the middle) is a Firebird into a Ghost Warmjet with a Ceriatone 5E7 amp. First solo is the Firebird/Warmjet. Second solo is the Jazzmaster/Lunar Incantation.
Should give a decent idea of the fuzz - very buzzy, loud, with that Fuzzrite near-octave thing going on as well. Lots of fun.

I'm sorry, Ian, there's not enough purple wire in those tagboard versions, you're gonna have to do them over.
