RMA Mudlark

Postby crochambeau » Sat Dec 05, 2015 12:32 am

Okay, okay, I'm jumping the gun a little on this - as I just cut the PCB order 3 odd hours ago... this is partly a quick test to see if anyone can reply to threads in this tank yet. Hahahaha

Here's the electrical profile of the upcoming Mudlark, with intent of establishing a tier between the Tetanus Booster and the Dirty Doper:

Image

The idea here, in a nut shell, is a capable preamp section (similar to the TB, but a different circuit) feeding a classic Baxandall tone stack (with reversed overlapping tapers, so as the bass goes up treble is cut and vice versa) and a FUZZ section that are order reversible, followed by another gain recovery section. So, three knobs (GAIN, TONE, VOLUME) and one toggle (FUZZ/TONE order) plus the footswitch in standard configuration.

Expected release around the turn of the year.

Man, I've been thinking about a fuzz with a tonestack that could go pre/post fuzz!

I guess it merits mention that since my three knob plan requires two dual gang pots, those who prefer more controls can request a five knob spread.

My standard is going to be the three knob variant, I might aim that toward the 3.5x5 that the Tetanus Booster inhabits. The only issue is that it might require slimming the center TONE knob down as pictured (Muff for scale, since my measuring tool is hard to read). I'm thinking a bi-color LED to indicate which order the mode switch is set on (only lit while engaged).

Image

Another thought is to rotate a standard Crustacean 4x6 ninety degrees and do a straight line of the large knobs. I haven't got any of those enclosures currently bent for a quick mock-up (but they would be closer in size to the EHX there).

The four/five knob would be treated as a custom, and therefore would be up to the requester.

EDIT: I'd also like to take a moment to indicate the fuzz circuit for the Mudlark has NOTHING to do with a Big Muff circuit, in case that picture polluted the waters. :animal:
