Silicone Tone Bender

Mictester over at designed this impressive silicone transistor based Tone Bender circuit that doesn't have to hide behind the (germanium based) original Benders. The switch allows to shift the input capacitor from standard Jimmy Page sounds (thin) to a pretty dark voicing with significant more bass available - you wouldn't expect that from a Bender (fat) ...

Halloween looms on the horizon  

Knock, knock! 
Who's there?

At least it does sound like a southern-lord-in-a-box ...
