Electra with mods.
Big Muff Army. Six mini big muffs each a different version.
Mini big muff number 6 Sustain Punch Creamy Dreamer clone.
Mini Big Muff Skreddy Mayo style.
Mini big muff #3 is a Green Russian clone.
What’s the difference between all those different versions of the big muff? I decided to find out! This is a thoroughly unscientific experiment. I got 7 mini big muff boards from mad bean pedals. The build docs include instructions for building each of 6 different versions.
Why 7 boards? I usually screw something up it’s always good to have a spare!
So far the Triangle is done. The boxes are made and the other boards are in process.
Building a mini big muff. This was built to mad beans Triangle spec.
This is a Big Muff built from Mad Beans mini pedal PCBs. I built this to the spec for the Triangle version.
John Hollis Titan Boost/octave. It’s all built on a single pcb that includes all of the default wiring for the switches and jacks. The rest of the pcb is perf board.
Mad Bean Mini Fat Booster. This Jack Orman’s Mini Booster with a charge pump running at 18 volts.
John Hollis Titan boost/octave. This is an op amp input pre amp/booster into a transformer. The transformer is 1k/20k and can output 30v from a 9v battery. The switch inserts a diode bridge for an octave effect.
The sound of the boost warm and clear. The octave effect is pretty good and different from other transformer based effects since the input signal is clean rather than a fuzz tone.
