  • Ugly face with tone control

    The Ugly Face has an interesting set of options. The Threshold knob has to be the most interesting though least useful. Last year I thought I’d add a tone control in it’s place. I wanted to build an Ugly Face and keep it in 1590B sized box. This format makes it hard to fit more […]

  • Building an Ugly Face

    I built an Ugly Face last week and took some pictures. This uses the Ugly face PCB I made and the typical DIY stompbox parts. I used the alpha 12mm pots in a B sized box. The more common 16mm pots would also work.

  • Ugly Face simple blend mod

    Here’s a simple mod that adds a blend pot to the Ugly Face.

  • Jinx

    This is another fine little Distortion by Tim Escobedo. I think this sounds pretty good. The sound can go from mildly distortion/overdrive to over the top almost metal. It can also get some splatty fuzz tones and a soft attack.

  • Psychtar

    Another very original design by Tim Escobedo. This an octave up with a sitar like sound.
