    I'm looking to add a blender to my DIY Mastotron Clone.

    There is the buff -N- blend:

    and a nice/compact kit here:

    would this be sufficient for dialing in some low end to the fuzz or do i need to step it up to

    1. Paralooper:

    or

    2. Paramix: http://www.guitarpcb.com/apps/webstore/products/show/3456364


    can we discuss the advantages/disadvantages of one over the other?

    I would like to build it directly into the pedal

    the first one draws next to no current so you could easily use the same power supply.

    the second one doesn't really require much either.
