Ghost Wah - Mad Professor (BJFE) Snow White Auto Wah Clone

While designing the graphics for the Auto Wah I got inspired by the minimalist but classic designs of Earthquaker Devices. That's the final result of several drafts ... not quite happy with how the waterslide decal turned out ... scale deformation and wrinkles do suck!

"masturbation movie download"

I just had a look at my blog's statistic via google anal-ytics and found that one recent search term amongst others was "masturbation movie download". Unable to get that picture of an eager - and after having visited my blog possibly disappointed - adolescent out of my head, meanwhile I'm pretty sure someone learned another meaning of "muff". 

It would be my pleasure to get to know your most bizarre search terms. Comments are highly appreciated ... or even more funny search terms in my next months overview. Please, be my guest!

Runoffgroove's "May Queen"

This green fairy is a "a stone cold crazy treble-boosted overdrive" developed by the brilliant guys of Runoffgroove.com.
As they say it won't replace your ordinary AC30 but this baby will help you getting close to Brian's "Stone Cold Crazy" sound.
I guess its new owner is "floating around in ecstasy".

I broke in on Rick Holt's rocky backyard to shoot a picture in front of his monolithic scenery. He's the genius behind Frequency Central who builds these extra cool sounding hot looking custom stompboxes.

That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit

7 Finger Death Punch

Recently another SevenFuzz (see the Baphomet post in my blog) left my working bench. This time it's a requested custom job for a really nice guy with a floral name. Since it has the deriving seven knobs we came across the idea of naming it "7 Finger Death Punch". Accommodating the by itself already outstanding seven knob Fuzz  plus additionally a Green Ringer and a Psychtar. The Psychtar is a discreet Fuzz that switches between a nice octave-up sound and a sitar-emulation. The sitar blooms extraordinary well with bridge and out-of-phase pick-ups. Engage the SevenFuzz as well as Ringer and Psychtar and immerse into Ring-Mod-Octave-Fuzz-Heaven. This device is amazingly wicked.

Thank you Monsieur Kayzer!
Once again you did a masterly job.

This is the Muhammad Ali of Fuzz: "It floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee"

PharaoH - Big Fuzz Supermuff

Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to the PharaoH. This magic little box is the ultimate Big Muff. Of course the graphics were heavily inspired by the pharaoh that Mark of Black Arts Toneworks is building. Let's be clear this is not meant as an infringement - it's meant to be a tribute. But who cares, since it won't be sold ... that's a keeper.
Actually I don't like Big Muffs at all, but boy this one's different. It is based on some ideas forumite Nocentelli over at FSB kindly shared who loosely based his thoughts upon a Blackout Effectors Musket schematic and the violet ram's head clipping section. 

The controls cover sustain,volume (see both icons) as well as tone, mids and a blend knob, which changes different input capacitors. Both switches (surprisingly) affect the first and second clipping-stages.

mmmh Muff ...

magic Muff

... even Siegfried & Rolf would dive for this Muff
