And people say Seppuku's horizontal knobs were a bad idea. :lol:

What can I say - it's the antiklone!

Knobs on the face are (L-R) Vol, Osc freq, Gain
Knob on the top is mids
Switches on the face: (L-R) engage oscillation, bypass
Switch on top is oscillation range (high or low)
Switch on the left is knives in your ears. It removes a smoothing capacitor from one of the gain stages. It introduces insane amounts of treble and hiss, and in oscillation mode interacts a lot with the other knobs.

You can pretty much kill people with this thing - or at the least make their ears bleed.

The thing I love about it is that there is no way to know if the knives are engaged, and if the range is high or low, nor if oscillation mode is engaged when it is bypassed. So turning it on is a like playing Russian Roulette unless you remember how you had it set up previously. Super fun!

Sounds awesome! We're going to need some clips! :snax:

Very cool fuzz. I want one. Have you tried it on bass? I'm thinking of building up a bass board and looking for cool options for dirt.

If I remember I'll take it to band rehearsal on Thursday and give it to the bassist. Probably in knives + high pitched oscillation mode.

Mu hu ha ha!

Will report back.

It is fucking rad on guitar. If I was using this for less silly purposes I think it'd sound great with some sort of "degain" switch, like Tom has on my Suneater. Pretty sure it's just a fixed input resistor mimicking turning the volume down on the guitar, but whatever. There is soooo much gain on tap here. Very articulate too. It lurves the palm mutes.

Yeah the gain on these goes from high to very high, because I used transistors with Hfe 500, instead of the 200 or so used in the original Bee Baa. These are darker and sustainier. I'm planning to make a few more (last) Nolks with a different look and using the lower Hfe transistors, for a change. Will post whenever I do that.

Sorry I haven't made a demo dude. Life has not been conducive to me sitting with the guitar an extended period of time. But crazy fun pedal! I love it. And the build is super tight man.
