Tek,
I got the beautiful little 3 transistor fuzz circuit boards. Thanks for your hard work on these. There is some irony in having these in the shop, their compactness and organization is so far beyond what the original kluge board looked like back at West Coast Organ and Amp that it makes me laugh. Cheers!

I am still digging the 3 transistor WC fuzz that Tek built for me, and I apologize for not having found the time to put up a clip yet! Least I could do in return for yours and Tek's work, but there's just been too much on my table. Still haven't finished the pedal board it is going on either, but it's close.

Between the 6550s and subtle WC mods to the amp, the PPIMV and switchable cascade mod to the front end, and this fuzz, I have a setup which gives some killer late period Hendrix sounds. I want to put in a zero-loss FX loop to to finish it off, so I can add a little "Fillmore East-y" reverb. That should be the icing on the cake.
JTM45 RS OT, 1973 18W, JTM45/100, JTM50, JMP50 1986, JMP100 "West Coast", AC15, AC30, BF Super Reverb, Boogie Mk 1, Hiwatt CP103, DR103

Can't wait ! Can't wait !! :)

i'm starting to desire a sustainiac system, that i could blend in with a pot, a push pull kind of fender pot, i don't know ... That could be sweet with endless notes, the fuzz, the WC amp. never tried a sustainiac. maybe it's just an active mini amp circuit that can be applied onto a non modded pickup ?
That would be my personal icing on the cake ;)

Which reverb gear will you target ?

Well yes I recognize that wah pedal, another of my "dirty tricks" from the past catches up with me. If the ghost of Vox ever finds me I may have to answer how I came to provide that pedal to Jimi six months before it became publicly available.

Is this the woodstock wah that was sold at an auction a few years back? Cheers!
