    No affiliation, just saw it on another forum and thought it looked badass. It's a custom order.

    Yep, John Lyons is the man!

    You will never find another builder that pays such an attention to the details

    I am a big fan of John's work. As jetofuj says, his eye for detail is unparalleled, and he makes things that are beautiful inside and out.

    Looks like the toggle might switch between rams head version and another.

    I would likely buy this!

    Yep, you can choose between Triangle and Ram's Head version.

    John made two custom orders for me.

    Lovetone Big Cheese clone with a blend:

    Fuzz Face with some additional features:

    What, no mid control? :bag:

    On a serious note, it does look very well done. Are there any clips?
  11. John is modding a Black Russian muff for me. Clean blend, mid control, different voicings, change the clipping. I'll post a pic of it when I get it back.

    I guess it's a Baxandall tone stack so doesn't really need a mids control. Just keep the bass and treble low and the mids will be boosted or turn them up for a mid cut.

    Keep in mind, that it is 100% hand made custom order. John not only assembled the thing, but also designed and made the PCB (and probably painted it to match the colour of the box :D), painted the box and made face place, then amp led and battery compartment, etc. I guess that in smaller and simpler box it might be cheaper...

    BTW, I think that bass and treble controls are brilliant idea.

    I'm not spending another $300 on a single pedal again, the BJFE BBBOD made a nice dent in my wallet though it was worth it.
