    My that new temp controlled Benson looks awesome.

    I’m real interested in the yellow hybrid tone bender, but I’m building a clone of it because I can’t afford a macari pedal
    Reuss Electricity Fuzz is in that wheelhouse too

    After going back and forth for a while, I don’t think the Megalith sounds much like a Big Muff. It’s pretty much in its own crazy territory, and I dunno if it’s going to be a keeper in the long run. Titan, on the other hand, has grown on me, and for my taste, might be right up there with the Bluebeard.

    So far, so good. The box of war isn’t shockingly surprising, since the sound is a known quantity. It sounds good to my ears. The tone knob has quite the range. Overall, I’m happy with the purchase.

    So far I’ve played my P and 4003 into it. The 4003 sounds great with it. It kinda makes me wish I was still jamming with people so I could turn it up.

    A little more dabbling today. The BOW responds well to the Germ Warfare feeding into it, which opens up quite a bit of tone shaping despite the limited EQ on the Germ. I only tried my P, but I could see this stack/pairing working well with my other basses, but my lunch break isn’t long enough to do much testing today :)

    new fuzz day!!!

    eldritch BLAST from Mask Audio Electronics / Electronic Audio Experiments

    Ytv6O8jl.jpg

    cross posted initial thoughts:
    It's really cool! Sounds great on bass. It's a really polished sounding fuzz, but you can make it really splatty and almost a touch pll-ish since it is super touch sensitive...but it still sounds together if that makes sense. I don't really understand the need for the EQ on/off switch, but I can see using it for a boost, but I find that I like the EQ always on. It's a pretty powerful EQ that helps shape the fuzz, especially when you set it splatty...you can blast the bass also. Woulda been cooler, to me, if that switch created more of an oscillation or something. The switches are soft switches too which is a really nice touch. It sounds as good as it looks...and as they say, you can never have too much fuzz...but I might be getting there.

    Does it have any settings that oscillate? I’m starting to come around to the Eldritch Blast now, a lot of people around here like it

    I want an Eldritch Blast… was this a one-off, or is John going to make more (I suppose I could just ask the builder)?

    Edit: Just messaged EAE.

    Does not oscillate that I have encountered (yet). It's basically a really solid sounding dirt with some options to make it a bit splatty and a bit pll / broken sounding like. I got caught up in the hype and had to pick one up, but I'm not disappointed at all.

    @Matt Dean - they have said that they expect 2 big batches to drop this year. Although it sold out reasonably fast, if you were sitting at a computer with a good internet connection at the time it went on sale, you got one. I was F5'ing waiting for the purchase button to appear and I could have gone in and bought it three times before it sold out...so it lasted only about 5 minutes, but 5 minutes is a long time if you are ready and waiting to purchase. I follow both MAE and EAE on instagram and they regularly provide details. I suspect the next batch will be closer to the holidays since MAE has another batch of part garden coming and a few other things that he has teased recently.

    Speaking of MAE: Titan is definitely a keeper after jam last night. It has that singing Muff sustain that I love, but a slightly different "flavor" than the usual Pi.

    MAE and EAE both make great stuff!

    Calamity has been my BMP of choice since November. It’s got the goods.
