Building some ugly faces

New work in progress

A nice opamp big muff PCB 
Mad bean Shark Fin. Based on the maestro filter sample and hold. I’m obsessed with this circuit, I’ve built several versions of it and own some boutique iterations.
Ooh look an ugly face, this is another effect that had become a minor obsession. I’ve built more than a few of these.

Okay so, here we take a look behind the scenes at the pile of unfinished work. This picture was taken inches the left of the previous images. 

Ugly Face – old build

I lost a lot of these pictures from my blog. So i thought I would repost them again for fun.

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.

Here’s a picture of an Ugly Face I made recently. For the graphics on this I used PnP. Not sure how this is going to work out. This is second effect I did with this method. This one came out better than the fist.

Fretboard Journal

One of the Ugly Face’s that I built got a mention in the Fretboard Journal. No picture though. Which is too bad. They took a picture of a bunch of other more common name brand things. Really Tim Escobedo should have gotten a mention. The people writing these articles need to educate themselves on the history and lineage of the current era of Stompboxes.
